WAL-MART IS WORKING FOR EVERYONE
Wal-Mart attempts to "set the record straight" by launching a tough-talking, no nonsense ad campaign. "As one of the world's most visible companies, Wal-Mart expects attention and criticism. When the criticism is warranted, we use it as a tool to improve the way we operate.

Oppose East Burnside Home Depot/Target Tonight 12/13/2004
Wouldn't that be awful if there was a giant (ugly) Home Depot or Target right in the middle of Portland? Folks driving by on the freeway would see it and sigh the sort of sigh that monoculture produces all over the place.

Well if we don't speak up, this vision will become a reality. They want to build a Home Depot or a Target on the east end of the Burnside Bridge, just a few blocks from locally owned Hippo Hardware.

Yet another reason to boycott Walmart- a discreet player in US presidential campa
Mon Nov 1, 2004 1:58 AM ET

WASHINGTON (AFP) - Favored by shoppers but criticised by organized labor, Wal-Mart -- the world's number-one retailer -- has been a discreet participant in the US presidential election campaign.

The company, which reported sales of 256 billion dollars last year, would be the 20th largest economy in the world if it were a country -- larger than Austria or Turkey.

Walmart to build Supermarket at Ruins at Teotihua, MX
Teotihuacan From the top of the Pyramid of the Sun in the ancient ruined city of Teotihuacan, Emma Ortega blows a haunting ode on her conch shell and points out a half-built Wal-Mart supermarket in the valley below.

Her blood boils at the sight. "It is an attack on our heritage," fumes Ms Ortega, a colorful figure in a small but vocal protest movement against the construction of a Bodega Aurrera superstore, a Wal-Mart Mexico subsidiary, half a mile from the monuments. "It is an attack on our cosmic equilibrium."

Study: Calif. Taxpayers Pay $86M Annually to Subsidize Wal-Mart Workers' Public Assistance
WAL-SLUM: our pay so low everyday, you'll live in slums! & take our drugs! SAN FRANCISCO Aug. 2, 2004 Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s compensation policies cost California taxpayers $86 million annually to provide health care and other public assistance to the retailer's underpaid workers, according to an analysis released Monday. The study estimated Wal-Mart employs roughly 44,000 California workers...[at]...an average of [only] $9.70 per hour 31 percent below the $14.01-per-hour average of other large retailers...

California taxpayers contribute [subsidize] an average of $1,952 per Wal-Mart worker--39 percent more than the average public assistance cost of $1,401 per worker at other large retailers ...

and "WAL-MART and the RED CHINESE SECRET POLICE" [Chinese slavery deals with Walmart gives you low prices, a police state, and slums everyday!]


It is surprising how some people look at a backward state like Arkansas, and yet do not wonder about the so-called great [economically and environmentally degradative] fortunes headquartered there. Tyson Chickens. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. and all their subsidiaries, and J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc.... The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, DEA, reportedly has undercover agent reports how Tyson, in the past, has been partly financed by dope trafficking. Same for Walmart? Wal-Mart and J.B. Hunt Transport Services. Where did the funding come from in the 1980s, for them to get so big? If you think they spread out simply because they are clever, then you are a firm believer in fairy tales.
