FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas (Reuters) – Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) announced a new $15 billion repurchase plan at its annual meeting on Friday and emphasized the advancement opportunities its workers have, even as a small but vocal group of workers complained that they cannot make enough money working for the world’s largest retailer.
The retailer’s annual meeting, at the Bud Walton arena in Fayetteville, Arkansas, is more of a pep rally for thousands of employees than a typical annual meeting. Shareholders attend, including members of the Walton family, who collectively own just over half of Wal-Mart’s shares. But the largest and loudest contingent is 14,000 workers from around the world, including store workers and truck drivers.
