My co-workers and I formed OUR Walmart because we believe that we deserve better. We are coming together to ensure that Walmart, a company that can afford to pay us more, does so.
We still reap what we sow. However corrupt or incestuous our political system may appear, it is still undoubtedly free and democratic; and we, the American people, have the power to elect officials and set the conditions in which our businesses can operate.
The real question isn't why Baptists are behaving like Baptists but rather why Hollywood studios aren't behaving like capitalists, selling more by either getting rid of the bad words or making alternative versions available to consumers like those represented by Lifeway.
I'm going to make a prediction, right here; right now: This crowdsourcing phenomenon is just getting started and Yammer is just the beginning of what is sure to be a clown-car chase for the best companies in this sector.
Today's action by the Planning Commission is good news for the city as it helps chip away at the notion that L.A. is a place that is difficult to do business.
The Lacey Act is under attack by some companies and Members of Congress and House Leadership is pushing for this bill to come up for a vote by the whole House before the end of July. Passage of this bill would be devastating for efforts to address deforestation.
In the South, the South I thought I knew, the times they are a'changin' . . . and it's about time. The mills and moonshine are gone.

While the big-box business model Sam Walton pioneered half a century ago has been great for Walmart, it hasn't been so great for the U.S. economy.
No amount of recycling can make up for all the waste and environmental destruction Walmart creates through its business model.
Last week, Walmart CEO Mike Duke was inducted into the Network of Executive Women's CPG/Retail Diversity Hall of Fame. At the same time, female Walmart employees across the country were continuing their protracted fight for justice against discrimination in the workplace.
The flag, as a symbol of the nation, is not owned by the administration in power, but by the people. We battle over what it means, but all Americans -- across the political spectrum -- have an equal right to claim the flag as their own.
A multitude of sex discrimination allegations have kept Walmart in the news in recent years. That's why a recent headline in The Atlantic caught me off-guard.
Good jobs and community revitalization are not enough for the average family. Increasing costs have left middle class families with less purchasing power. One way to work towards solutions is to improve access to affordable products.
One year ago today, the Supreme Court's decision in Wal-Mart v. Dukes prohibited the women of Wal-Mart from joining together to fight discrimination in a single lawsuit.
Nearly one in three Americans who have fought to defend our freedoms cannot find a job after their service is complete. This is unacceptable. Regardless of political affiliation, all Americans can agree that the men and women who serve our country deserve every chance to succeed once they return home.
It is time to stand up against illegal logging and for American business, musicians that want instruments that are untainted, American workers, companies that want legal wood, and communities around the world devastated by deforestation.
