No. The Yale Law Journal does not mention Walmart, but my journalist’s/political observer’s gut tells me that political, captive-audience workplace meetings like those already utilized by the Koch Brothers cannot be far off for Walmart associates.
Citizens United has wrought widespread changes in the election law landscape. Yet, a lesser-known consequence of this watershed case might have a significant impact in the workplace: it may permit employers to hold political captive audience workplace meetings with their employees. Under Citizens United’s robust conception of corporate political speech, employers may now be able to compel their employees to listen to their political views at such meetings on pain of termination.
