What doesn't Wal-Mart sell? | Answerbag
Quality good made by Americans who are paid a decent, living wage. Most especially goods made by GASP! UNION workers!
Fresh meat that is not prepackaged, due to the fact that their meat-cutters went union on them and they completely eliminated their fresh meat departments and went prepackaged so as to not have to acknowledge them and have an excuse to fire them.
They don't sell you the truth about their dealings with secret Chinese sweat shops employing slave labor and the fact that they refuse to disclose the location of their Chinese factories to agencies that monitor and check those factories to assure that they operate under decent and globally acceptable humane conditions.
They don't sell news of their own convictions for violating child labor laws here in the U.S., nor their policy of actually LOCKING employees in their stores till work is completed.
The don't sell the fact that their employees are expected to work overtime, without compensation, else they risk losing their jobs.
They don't sell their policy of unfair pay and promotion policies toward women employees, or their dismal benefit programs and pay scale.
They don't sell their subversive tactics to undermine any and all attempts at unionization or their 'secret gang meetings' aimed to attack employees who would try try to unionize.
They don't sell their policy of moving into small towns and lowering their prices until they have put every small business OUT of business, then raising their prices. In those cases, they become nearly the only place to work and they can pay $8 an hour salaries to those that have no other choice.
What Walmart DOES sell is the future basic pay scale for American workers, since they are the LARGEST employer in the U.S.
They have SOLD OUT America and the American worker. Every time we buy from them we compound the misery of our own American workers and those abroad.
