Sanders Hands Over His Social Media Accounts to Walmart Workers Ahead of Attending Annual Meeting to Advocate for Employees

Sen. Bernie Sanders turned over his social media accounts to Walmart workers on Tuesday—one day before the Democratic presidential candidate is set to attend the retail giant’s annual meeting, at the invitation of some employees, to advocate for higher wages and introduce a shareholder’s proposal that aims to ensure hourly workers are represented on the company’s board.
