After fort four years of offering lay-away to the bottom workers on the economic scale,Wal-Mart has switched to a Wal-Mart credit card program. Thousands of needy Wal-Mart employees,are rushing to sign up. There is some question wheather or not they will qualify,considering their low income level,working part time. Is this the Wal-Mart way not to pay health insuance to employees? All Wal-Mart exutives have declared themselves Libertarians,saying their employees own their own bodies. In another move to appeal to upscale shoppers,Wal-Mart will possibly offer organicaly grown produce,using only cow manure from Califorina for all leafy greens. Rumor has it they are about to introduce a line of designer pasta,and such exotic items,as iguana tounge,and condor pate,all in a move to bring celebrity shoppers en mass to salute the greeter. Now if they would only remove the signs at the service counter in Mexico,that the nine year old kid bagging the groceries is working for tips,and one can assume not compensated by Wal-Mart,I might appreciate the efforts to Upscale.

Wal-Mart was just heavily fined in Penn. seems the employees there, worked through their breaks and stayed past quitting time....without pay, to keep up with the ever increasing workloads. several other states have similar suits pending.
Wal Mart Execs probably drool when they read about the good old days when child laborers were chained to their machines, or the Triangle sewing machine Co, in NYC, where the fire escape doors were chained shut to keep the employees from sneaking out for a breath of fresh air.

And this old Bill Moyers interview:
"ANNOUNCER: The true cost of shopping at Wal-Mart. Andů Saddam captured. What should the world community do with war criminals?"
