What Percentage of the US Workforce Is Employed by Walmart?

Walmart employs about 1% of the working population in the U.S. — that's about 1.5 million people. To put that in perspective, that's more than the entire populations of Iceland, Monaco and Macau combined.

More facts on Walmart:

  • The largest Walmart store in the world is in Albany, New York. It is more than 250,000 square feet (more than 23,000 square meters), which is about one-fourth larger than a regular Walmart Supercenter.

  • There are around 9,000 Walmart stores worldwide, with about 5,700 stores outside the U.S., including in China, India and Brazil, although most of them operate under different names.

  • Walmart doesn't just stick to consumer goods — it makes movies as well. In 2010, Walmart and Procter & Gamble made two feature-length family movies that heavily feature people using Walmart and Procter & Gamble products.
