The one thing that is rarely mentioned is the fact that Wal-Mart does not do sweeps of neighborhoods, rounding people up to force them to work at their business. Each person who works for Wal-Mart has opted to work there. If they are unhappy with their pay, working conditions, or requirements of the job, the store swings both ways. To demonize a business for basically providing them with employment is absurd.
Those who criticize Walmart and their employment practices are those who are deluded about their entitlements in life. From the postings here on this thread, America is full of entitlement-mongers
to give you an example, the current Walmart advertising campaign has nothing to do with the products. it's a saturation advertisement about how great it is to work there with fake actor testimonials. it's titled "that's the real Walmart."
basically, so many people here hate the store that they actually have to do a "come on guys, we're really not corporate demons" commercial. many of us feel that way because a family member or friend has worked there. i was a customer before that.
like i said, when unions form, it will be well deserved.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
It's snowing hard here at the moment. Good day to be indoors, sitting at a computer, or baking something chocolatey and chewy! I intend to spend my day doing both!
