Are you fed up with the ongoing immoral, unethical behavior from Dick Cheney's favorite corporation, Walmart?
As one of our favorite progressive sites, ColorOfChange.org, points out:
"Walmart reported a profit of $15.7 billion last year, yet Walmart workers must rely on food stamps, Medicaid and other anti-poverty programs to put food on the table and keep the lights on."
Do you think this doesn't affect you personally? Think again. As ColorOfChange.org notes:
"Taxpayers subsidize this worker exploitation to the tune of $900,000-$1,750,000 per store, and there are over 4,700 Walmart and Sam's Club stores in the U.S."
During the eight horrific years of the Bush/Cheney's corporatist regime, no action was taken against Walmart. Today, however, it's a different story.
From As ColorOfChange.org:
"Fed-up workers have walked off the job at Walmart stores in Dallas, Seattle, Chicago, Miami and Southern California. And Walmart is facing federal prosecution for its pattern of illegal firings and threats to workers across at least 13 states."
