  1. A Walmart worker's life

  2. Thirty-year-old David Coulombe, who works as a consumables sales floor associate at Walmart, waits in front of the store where he works in Chelmsford, Massachusetts for a bus to take him and fellow activists to a march and rally for $15 minimum wage April 14, 2015. Walmart has announced that it will institute a nationwide $9 per hour minimum wage, but Coulombe, who started working at Walmart as a cart pusher, already makes $11.70 per hour and lives with his parents because he cannot afford to live on his own.

  3. David Coulombe talks to his sister Trina at his parents' home in Lowell, Massachusetts March 3, 2015. "I used to work at Hannafords before I worked at Walmart. I worked at Hannafords for five years but I wasn't full-time over there so I went to Walmart and they offered me full-time, so I accepted the position," Coulombe said. REUTERS/Brian Snyder
