Yeah, but $3 is like $1 billion yen - you can live like a king on that over there.
Watch the documentary.

I think the more ppl who watch this the
more pressure Wal Mart will feel to change their
practices...here and there.

Cause they are terrible to their own working here.

Yeah, I've seen the documentary - Wal-Mart's not the only company guilty of this - anything made in Vietnam is made with slave labor - that includes that nifty new Nike Patriots jersey you just bought.

I haven't clicked on your links, but if that's the case, then something has changed DRASTICALLY in Chinese law within the past decade. I have seen it reported to the point of ad naseum in the media that non-nationals can own more than 49 percent of a business in communist China.

Should be "canNOT own more than 49%".

But I have googled it and you are correct. That's not the way it used to be though. Perhaps the new (to them) world of capitalism has finally opened their eyes.

The thing is, Rmoney and his 1% ilk wouldn't care if America became the slave labor. Why else would they want to destroy unions, minimum wage and child labor laws? Well, profits, of course, but- why stop there? Why not own the whole country?

Clinton signing NAFTA was probably the single biggest union buster in this country. Virtually every manufacturer of chains, sprockets, belts (like v-belts and flat conveyor belting), hubs, bearings and bearing units, etc (basically everything you would see in a factory that is used to convey, fab and build products) moved to Mexico within 1-2 years.

You can blather all day long and disagree with that as much as you want but it won't change the facts; but I am in this industry and watched it unfold as it happened.

Almost all of my stock orders come from Mexico, some from Canada and the rest (very very few) from China.

Yeah, I kinda' figure with McDonald's over there and everything, it's unlikely Foo Mang Chow would be dressed up like Ronald and handing out little toys made in the USA.

Good morning Denny.

I really was a fan of Wal-Mart.
Also of Sam Walton and his ideas on
how to treat employees but I didn't
know how much had changed since he
died.

Plus the documentary showed how many
small businesses they run into the ground.
It was really sad. Esp when the cities
where a new WM is being located, are paying
WM up to 800,000 to come to these small
towns and the small bus. that have been
there couldn't get any help from their own
towns. Just sad.

Well, THAT is an endorsement! Why should your neighbor be your grocer, hardware man or clothier when an HUGE, impersonal, global conglomerate can do all those things AND pay wages so low their *employees* can qualify for welfare? Eff all that American entrepreneurship! Unless WalMart sells that, that is....

I live 15 miles from a small town (college town)
Growing up there were several clothing stores,
a nice shoe store, a store that sold linens, towels
and household goods.
In the mid 80's a Wal Mart was put in in the Oak Hill/
Fayetteville area. About 45 miles away.
Right after all of these stores had to close.

Right now...today we have to drive 45-65 miles just
to buy 1 pair of jeans, a pair of shoes or anything
for the household.
