Reality is liberal indoctrination

Unfortunately, we have come to expect sleazy and dishonest acts from business and industry. Every time I see one of those feel good coal commercials telling us how they create millions of jobs from cheap, clean coal, I think of the 4000+ people who are diagnosed from black lung every year, the fact that we can't eat fish more than twice a week without risk of Mercury poisoning, or the impending disasters caused by climate change. Clean coal does not exist, but they sure push it like it does.

Wallmart is famous for destroying local business wherever it lands and generally lowering the overall standard of living, but don't expect them to tell YOU that.

Take a look at the last 10 years of WalMart's stock price . It has traded in a 45 to 60 dollar range the entire time . And yet WalMart aggressively encourages it's employees to buy shares claiming that it is a great investment . I am not at all surprised that WalMart's management is involved in propaganda directed at its employees , they've been doing it for many years .
As a side note I would say that all of the goods at Walmart are not made in China . There are many items made in Japan , Taiwan , South Korea , Canada , and Mexico . And there are items made in the USA (although not as many as I would like to see) . Some , like the GE brand camera I just purchased , are made in China by US firms . When you shop there look at the labels to see where items are made .

Let's get one thing straight, WAL MART is a product of America, NOT CHINA. The Chinese didn't invent the concept of outsourcing cheaper labor, AMERICANS DID. Stop hating china

I hate any country that opens fire on it's own children, imprisons all who speak out against power, and who systematically destroys its best and brightest.

There are a lot of reasons to hate China. The Chinese government is disgusting... but even more disgusting are those leaders of the western nations who didn't turn their backs on that land after Tienamin. That we continue to do business with that country, in spite of their systematic abuse of their own people is a sin.

The US is in absolutely no position to lecture China or any other nation about human rights. We might be better practiced at exercising a collective conscience about human rights, but that consciousness has come about mostly by those who have fought and/or died to ensure it, or those whose deaths have brought attention to it (e.g., Emmett Till).

Cheap labor and slavery was employed in building America. In due time, market forces drove up wages. A similar thing is happening in China. Sorry but your selective criticism is redundant applied to this thread.

I simply do not understand why anyone shops at WalMart. I don't care how cheap it is...their policies are ruining America. I'll get my stuff at thrift shops before WalMart.

I'm sure the Walmart employees don't want to hear both sides of the story... I wonder if the Walmart internal news ran the article about the Walmart heirs?

Six Wal-Mart heirs are wealthier than US' entire bottom 30%

They got to keep that trend going no matter what, even at the expense of America's future.

The fact that Wal - Mart's corporate leadership thinks that the employees would fall for this trick speaks volumes about the lack of respect the company has for their associates.

"...Walmart's version trumpeted the company's "competitive pay and benefits"

Really? Compared to what? And where?

I think they were counting the food stamps and medicaid benefits that taxpayers provide to walmart employees as part of the numbers. including the govt. benefits gets walmart pay and benefits competitive to "slave wages."
