Why Investors Are Turning Against Dollar General


Dollar General has been placed in a program for the worst worker safety violators in the nation — and even its shareholders are outraged.

A group of investors, led by Domini Impact Investments, are pressuring the retail giant to clean up its act.

In a major win for workers, Dollar General shareholders approved an independent audit of the company’s egregious safety issues.

Dollar General has racked up millions in fines as an OSHA ‘serial violator’ while paying workers poverty wages.

“The company has expanded so fast and so recklessly,” said David Williams, an employee and member of advocacy group Step Up Louisiana who presented the proposal to shareholders, “that on any given day, I might have to deal with a rat infestation, a door they won’t lock or someone pointing a gun at me with no security to protect me.”
