In June, 2014 the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in favour of Quebec workers who lost their jobs at a Walmart store in Jonquière, Quebec after the store shut its doors suddenly months after its employees unionized.
Earlier this month, Walmart laid more than 2,200 workers off as the company unexpectedly closed five of its U.S. stores due to "severe plumbing problems". Walmart's advice to the thousands of employees recently laid off? Avoid caffeine and chocolate.
Two years ago, over 1,100 people lost their lives and thousands more suffered debilitating injuries in the Rana Plaza tragedy in Dhaka, Bangladesh - the deadliest garment-factory tragedy in history.
