More Anti-Wal-Mart Food for Thought

Wal Mart... A Violator of Human Rights?:
According to www.pbs.org, the average take-home pay of an American Wal-Mart employee is under $250 a week; the minimum wage pay scale places employees with families below the poverty line. The company is staunchly anti-union, and Wal-Mart employees make 25% less than their unionized counterparts after two years on the job. 85% of the stores' merchandise is made overseas, often in Third World sweatshops. Wal-Mart is the country's largest importer of Chinese goods in any industry.
At $250 a week in take home pay, that works out to a whopping $12,000 a year. Add in some kids and you've got a recipe for indentured servitude, the employees are too in debt to make waves or go find a job somewhere else.

Why do I hate Wal-Mart? Because Wal-Mart hates me and you and everyone else but they love, love, love your money. They can't wait to get it so they can send it China where it will never come back into circulation in the US, ever.

If you shop at Wal-Mart you are enabling this exploitation, you are directly working to undermine the strength of the USA. Wal-Mart is not about low prices, Wal-Mart is about shaving costs at whatever price and hiding expenses that they can shift to localities, counties and states.

Wal-Mart is a despicable company that could be using its power to make the world a better place but that doesn't please shareholders as much as an extra penny on their dividends.
