Water Entertainment Technology designs water features—the nine acres of fountains at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas—or even grander, the 30-acre Dubai Fountain, the largest in the world. WET was founded by a group of former Disney Imagineers, including CEO Mark Fuller, who developed a unique “laminar-flow” nozzle as an engineering student. That nozzle is one of the innovations that make WET’s creations so unusual; others, developed in WET’s Burbank campus, include low-energy lighting, underwater robots, and even an ice fountain. The campus, which includes a newly opened “Idea Playground,” is home to the engineers, designers, choreographers, animators, and technologists whose collaborations are changing the way people think about water.

The protest was partially a response to the company's so-called "Great Workplace" restructuring initiative which Walmart began testing last year and plans to roll out in at least 1,100 of its 5,300 U.S. stores by the end of 2020.
