Yes, Walmart is evil, and I have a unique perspective. First, I used to work in the WalMart cult, and, yes, it also is a cult. Anyone want to actually see it, go to Bentonville, AR. The wives of the HQ people aren't "encouraged" to work and should stay home, raise babies and volunteer in the community to give Walmart a good name. You are "encouraged" to go to church (Christian only please), stay with the Walmart crowd, and in general, devote your life to the company. Forget raises or promotions if you don't. They pay and treat their employees with about as much respect as they show their consumers.
By the way, ever wonder why a Sanyo TV is so much less at Walmart? Because it isn't the same one at Best Buy or where ever. They are cheap knockoffs. Walmart strong arms it's vendors into producing the lowest price stuff it can, they actually do dictate price to the vendors. Why does this matter to you? Because they are causing prices to go up everywhere else! Ever notice that Oscar Meyer bacon is way more expensive at the grocery store than any other brand? Because Walmart "owns" Kraft and dictates price to them. They then have to make up their differences everywhere else they sell it. This causes loss of competition, and once Walmart has a strangle on the market, they raise prices anyway!
Consumers must make government stop Walmart form killing our economy. They are the number one leech on us right now, and people need to get more educated about it. They are already crossing so many employment and fair trading practices laws that it boggles the mind.
