    What's wrong with yellow? It's so cheery. The manager gave him a cheery color to wear and told him he didn't have to do any work. The only thing he was singling the guy out for was a date.

    Yeah, let's hang all the executives of evil Walmart. Yeah, that's the ticket. I'm sure that Walmart HQ sent the yellow vest down there themselves, with a note saying "Bwuahahahahah"! Don't these threads belong in the conspiracy forum? Anyone want to guess why this isn't in a mainstream newspaper? I mean this is about a GAY employee, and don't you think all the liberal papers would be reporting this massive discrimination case? Why didn't they make him wear a pink vest?

    There is a LOT wrong with a yellow vest! You don't force a man who has just informed you that he is into hot, sweaty man sex to wear a yellow vest.
    You do that for somebody who has just told you he is into water sports.


    Stupid Walmart. Can't even get their color coding right.

    The only thing I can say is that at the plant I work in. If we paint something yellow, a forklift will run into it within a week. Its the weirdest thing, but it happens.

    How many things actually have "local" options nowadays?

    Just as an example, I recently needed an iced tea maker, a rice cooker, and an espresso machine. My choices for that are:

    1) Take the train down to Macy's (a huge chain) and walk around for 45 min before paying a premium,
    2) Travel all over the city trying to find individual local stores that would sell each of these things (after purchasing them from overseas), or
    3) Go online and order them from Amazon or Walmart, saving time and a couple hours.

    Criticisms of big box stores make some sense when they're pushing out smaller stores that actually produce things locally, but I don't see why the individual dude importing things from China or Italy down in midtown is more deserving of my dollar than the company importing things from China or Italy that has a bunch of stores.

    Our local walmart has the best grocery store (except for produce) in town and its about 3 minutes from the house, so I shop there.

    I don't deal with Walmart because I don't care for the way they move into smaller towns and open mega stores that put several small businesses out on their rears. Walmart isn't that big a deal somewhere like here in LA or in New York but it has, literally, taken over the commerce of small towns and a single Walmart usually affects multiple towns in the same area. Add to that the mounting charges of gender bias and poor treatment of employees and I just can't fathom doing business with them.

    All the stuff you listed, by the way, can be bought on the same block of Chinatown or at most strip malls. There's zero need to ever set foot in a Walmart.

    This can certainly be a problem, but I don't see how to really distinguish it from normal economic development. Walmart puts local supermarkets and department stores out of business. Back when those local supermarkets/department stores opened up, they put small grocers and mom & pop goods shops out of business. Back when those small grocers and mom & pops opened, they put individual fruit/veggie/meat sellers & home crafters out of business. Every single F500 company got to where it is by putting smaller competitors out of business, so I don't see a reason to treat Walmart more harshly than the others.

    Add to that the mounting charges of gender bias and poor treatment of employees and I just can't fathom doing business with them.
    I'm sure Walmart has problems with these things, but think about the stores they replaced - do you think gender bias/racism/etc. was more or less prevalent in those places? Large companies are more likely to have sexual harassment and anti-discrimination policies and are more likely to be concerned about negative publicity. If 10 individual mom and pops wrongly discriminate against gays, nobody hears about it. If one Walmart wrongly discriminates against 10 gays, it's sure to become a national story.

    All the stuff you listed, by the way, can be bought on the same block of Chinatown or at most strip malls. There's zero need to ever set foot in a Walmart.
    I doubt I could easily find all of those things in Chinatown while comparison shopping and looking up the specifications, and even if I could, it would involve a whole bunch of searching around and would certainly end up costing me more than it would if I bought them online. While they might be easy to find at a strip mall (if I felt like driving to one), what makes a strip mall outlet of bed/bath/beyond or macys any less damaging to local business than Walmart?
