The Walton family is one of the richest families in the world, inheriting their hoard of loot from Bud and Sam Walton, founders of Walmart, the world's largest retailer and employer. Six members of the family own as much wealth as the bottom 40% of Americans (49 million families).
5 Ways Walmart Is Evil
- Bullying of overseas suppliers, demanding lower wages and safety standards
- Widespread gender discrimination
- Stores have a net negative effect on job creation - every job created destroys 3 others
- Unfair wages
- Union busting at home and overseas
I am happy to not support this evil empire. Escaping its effects, though, is more difficult. We are all touched by the rapacious greed of those at the top.
