Walmart is known for pretty good tax dodging - legal tax dodging, but still...
Many states, counties, and principalities will actually pay a Walmart to open shop, and almost universally are they given relaxed taxes for a considerable amount of time after opening. This is on top of them being a massive recipient of corporate welfare and subsidies.
Sam Walton was not a savior of the masses. They do some good with offering employment to...I can't remember the exact number of jobs, but it's over a million. If these workers want to strike, let them strike. However, they are running serious risks. Usually, it makes more sense to strike if your labor is in demand, and cannot be filled by any fool walking the street.
