Re: NYT Editorial: Don't Blame Wal-Mart
The reason I hate Wal-Mart is I work in a business- printing overwrap on polyethelene-when you but that bottle water wrapped in printed polt film, ot toilet paper- I am the gut printing that wrap. We have been told point blank by Presidents and CEO's and KFCs and DVDs and all sorts of other clean-shaven lettered types in really nice suits that THE MISSION HAS CHANGED- gotta be a high quality low cost producer to survive (and then I am always reading how my company has bought out another competitor to gain their business) and their best offer at contract time is all they can do and then they post a list of how many employees will be layed off if a contract isn't approved. An actual post with exact numbers. A clear violation of federal labor laws. Oh well, I AM a politically conservative. I guess this is what I ask for, huh? I guess I am just a bit bitter? I guess this is just a sign of the times.
Sorry if I hijacked this a bit. That is my last beer of the night...
I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
