Wal Mart is evil, part 1 billion
Just another routine example of evilness from Wal-Mart chief executive Lee Scott.
By the way, I highly recommend the web site known as Wal-Mart Watch, a web site sponsored by the service workers union and Sierra Club, among others. Its issues page is informative enough to convince any good and loyal American to never shop at Wal-Mart again.
My mantra is that Costco (good to its employees in most instances) and Target (not so great, but not obessively anti-union and cutthroat as Wal-Mart) are much better alternatives for consumers as Costco and Target have similar pricing of products and services. If you think the prices are much different from Wal-Mart's prices, then ask why it is that Wal-Mart family members take several places among the top 15 world billionaires (and are among the top 10 American billionaires). The money saved on exploiting employees and distributors, and shipping American jobs to China, goes somewhere--in the Wal-Mart owners' pockets, not the pockets of consumers. Apart from a loss leader in the first 50 feet of the Wal-Mart doors, as reported on the Frontline report interview with a former Wal-Mart manager, the prices are really not all that different among the discount "big box" stores.
