This documentary opens today..probably not mainstream but it opens nonetheless..I am not a fan of Wally World..I hate them and their useless underpaid, uninsured employees. I hate their habit of going into areas and opening a ton of stores when just a couple will do. I think the majority of their products are cheap, horribly-made and will very seldom last past a year. The majority of their products are made outside the US. The founder Sam Walton, was a tight-ass of legendary status. That man could squeeze a nickel till it screamed. The employees are usually uneducated and in alot of instances bordering on mentally disabled, since intelligent people wont work for a company that pays so little and expects so much in return. Their benefits are non-existant unless of course your in management..THEN they take care of you, but not on the level of most corporations their size. There are now groups out there dedicated to bringing this huge corporation to their knees, and sportsfans, they do their homework. Walmart's growth has slowed to a trickle over the last few years and for this fact alone I am very happy. Two watchdog groups are at the forefront of taking down Sam Walton's baby..Walmart Watch and Wake up Walmart both of whom have the exec's at Wally World shaking in their collective boots. Walmart now has a war-room, hiring some of the best PR spin doctors in the business to change the way we view them. Walmarts stock as dropped drastically(27% since 2000) and the people they covet the most, middle america are shunning them due to bad publicity and high profile personnel problems/lawsuits. I love this part of the article regarding a report that Wally World itself commissioned : A confidential 2004 report prepared by McKinsey & Company for Wal-Mart, and made public by Wal-Mart Watch, found that 2 percent to 8 percent of Wal-Mart consumers surveyed have ceased shopping at the chain because of "negative press they have heard."
There is a very good article in the NY Times today regarding Wally's War Room and the people that oppose this corporations raping of America. The link to the article is here. If you shop at Wally World do yourself a favor and at least read the article or view the websites I have linked before you shop there again.
Bitchy, opinionated female that loves sports.
