Seven pages on why we hate/love Walmart. Can't say it wasn't worth the read at least. I hate Walmart, but for no other reason than I hate their commercials. It seems like every time I go to our local Walmart (which is necessary because they ran everyone else out of town) the people are nowhere near as cheery or helpful as they are in the commercials. No scientific fact here; just my personal observation, which I may or may not get fried for.
However, (disclaimer) I worked at the local Walmart part-time for a while, until I realized I could be mowing lawns part-time for better pay and I wouldn't have to wear a blue vest (and I probably wasn't very cheery or helpful either). Like every other firefighter in this nation, we're willing to try any off-duty job if it will make a buck and sounds interesting.
I do appreciate their contributions to society however; in addition to their corporate citizenship, they were the only place open for us in Slidell and I DEFINITELY needed something to eat other than an MRE. And those people were pretty cheery, especially for having just been through a major disaster, so maybe my Walmart-hating is more of a local issue.Michael "Mick" Mayers

Wow, thats alot of money for the biggest retailer in the WORLD
Wal-Mart is still the most unethical companies in this country. I love how they make workers work off the clock, and FIRE them if they even PLAN on organizing.
15 mil is not even a days pay for them.

Wal-Mart must pay workers $172m
The world's largest retailer, Wal-Mart, has been ordered to pay $172m in compensation to workers who were refused lunch breaks.From 2001, state law called for shift workers to get meal breaks or be compensated with extra pay. Wal-Mart workers got neither, the lawsuit charged.Wal-Mart is still the most unethical companies in this country. I love how they make workers work off the clock, and FIRE them if they even PLAN on organizing.
