walmart employs more disabled and elderly as a percentage of their workforce second only to mcdonalds than any other company out there thats a for profit non-charity.

i like both of them.

you just get a very interesting cross section of society patronozing either business

I go to Walmart at least three times a week. Their prices tend to be good but as usual you have to compare before you buy. I like the one-stop shopping, you can get household goods, auto parts, ammo, etc. at a good price, then swing into the grocery department for low prices. My nearest Walmart has a McDonalds inside and but I skip their God-awful McNuggets and burgers, instead getting something from the Walmart deli. Compare the "meat" of a McNugget vs. Walmart's chicken nuggets!

Put me down as a Walmart fan and I'd rather be with their patrons than the fashion crowd uptown who truly are dumber than bricks no matter how pompous they act.

Walmart is what we ask it to be. Must be working cause growth has been their hallmark since daddy started it a very long time ago. You can love to hate him if you wish but more people depend on them then the US Gov to make it through the week. Jon pointed out something thats a fact and awesome, they employ more disabled individuals than any other for profit company in the world.

You might have also noticed that most of the low wage jobs in the nation have been replaced by robots or outsourced to China. You cant get a job slinging hay, horse poo or hash if your young and unexperienced or deficient in intelligence due to no choice of your own. Walmart integrates workers, it doesnt create unnatural slave enclaves and its benefits for part time work are better than many full time jobs in other industry leaders workplaces, they do this even without Unions holding their feet to the fire.

Sam was a visionary and his stores provide that which poor folks couldnt afford until his methods forced prices across the board to stabilize and moderate. So they have billions instead of millions, that doesnt make them worse or better, just means they can choose where to shop if they want.

Yup, they attract some real doosies but just take a walk through a Middle Class High School, freaks on parade...

http://www.meatpoultry.com/articles/news_home/Food_Safety/2013/06/Wal-Mart_food-safety_initiativ.aspx?ID=%7B7CB214F4-127B-4356-BA9D-712FB5FBEF39%7D&cck=1

Wal-Mart imports approximately 60 percent of its fruits and vegetables and 80 percent of its seafood.
“Hazards can be introduced and exacerbated at any point in the supply chain between harvest and consumer, and as a result, we have to rely on food safety in other countries on our imported food as well as the food safety we have here,” Dyenson said.

I estimate my local Walmart has around 65-75% of it's products made in china (not counting food items). Go to you local Wal Mart and check out the labels. You will be shocked. I was.



Since alot of people have expressed how good Walmart is, more power to you, when big daddy SAM started it years ago it was all about America, when he died his l/Wing family in the last 20 years have Ruined the Small business Man which gave us quite the quality product.


Walmart has treated Women badly on promotions, and undered paid them in some cases over the years. Lots of law cases pending. Plus most of their cloths are cheap, very cheap. their food IMO the meat is to red, a person I know use to work in the Meat department and they uses food coloring for its appearance sometimes LMAO, and people actually think beef is that red.


And worst thing yet Walmart has made their firearms section smaller over the years, if you live next to a walmart that has a big Firearms section your lucky, don't expect that to be there for much longer, Hillary Clinton wants Walmart to stop the sell of firearms along with the rest of your gun grabbing liberals.

IMO America was a better place without them and certainly less socialist.

The customers found at Walmart represent the surrounding community more than they represent Walmart. Walmart is just a retail store. If there is a store in a trashy neighborhood, there will be trashy customers. I’m in the local Walmart at least once a week, (admittedly at ten in the morning rather than nine at night,) and have never seen sights as shown in various "Walmart customers” pictures. On the other hand, I had the occasion to spend about thirty minutes in the parking lot of another Walmart in a town about thirty miles from here and was amazed at the difference in the customer base at that store.

Wal-Mart is the fulfillment of the American dream.

Provide the customer with a high quality product at a reasonable price, and you get rich doing it.
