One of our new members said something about stopping 3 wal-marts from being built. I guess I am going to start the wal-mart debate here.

Is Wal-Mart the "great evil"?
I think the Walton family is/are the greatest monopolizers of all time. That's not a bad thing. My mom has worked at Wal-Mart for 14 years, she has been assistant manager here in Watertown, SD for 8 years. Wal-Mart does great things, she right now is involved in a program for teaching "challenged" students how to read and write. This Wal-Mart is #2 if not #1 in the state, it grosses over $200,000 a day. Yearly it donates over $50,000's a year to charitys. Wal-Mart is most certainly NOT evil.

I am going to say yes even though I like the low prices.

I worked at Wal-mart for a few months before heading back to the Army. The wages at Wal-Mart hardly cover the bills. Working full time barelyl brought in $1000 a month take home. Try to support a family with that.

I found working at wal-mart gave me no sense of accomplishment. THat is something the Army gives me a lot of.

I don't know if I'd call it the "great evil" just because of that, Doody.

I forgot to add in the fact that Wal-mart is killing a lot of the mom and pop stores. Are any of you familiar with Bar Harbor in Maine. The town is known for it's small shops and small town style. Wal-mart came in with a super center. A lot of small businesses were ran out of business.

I firmly believe that small businesses are better for the American worker.

Wal-Mart Not Evil. Wal-Mart good. We Must Worship and shop at the Almighty. O Great Wal-Mart How we Love you.






My Dada has worked at Wal-Mart for like 27 Years Now. He retired a few years back but they wouldn't leave him alone so at age 40 he went back to work for them. After making a few termss With them and making close to the same amount as an Assistane Manager. Plus My Mom decided she wanted a job, My Dad meationed his wife was looking :they had a Job opening ...lol


Plus You can't hate the waltons for being 20 billion a peice.

walmart has the cheapest stuff, but pays its employees very little. The joys of capitalism.

Hey man, as long as there's food on the table, am I right?
