Am I the only person who remembers reading and being shocked by the L.A. Times Pulitzer prize-winning three-part expose of Walmart, published in 2003, titled “The Wal-Mart Effect”?
I suggest anyone on the fence in the “let-‘em-in or keep ‘em out” debate go back and read what was written. Since reading about their business practices in those articles, I have never again set foot in a Walmart store and never will.
I will go without that new T-shirt before I’ll cause some mother in Honduras to work 18 hours a day to meet her quota while her children take care of themselves. A bargain is a good thing, but not at that price.
