Wal-Mart sucks!

We all know how Wal-Mart has sank to the bottom of the barrel as it's gotten bigger. It's customer service, it's merchandising, and it's cleanliness have all gone down hill.

But are you aware how badly they treat their employees? How their practice of forcing companies to sell them goods at cheaper and cheaper prices have forced manufacturers to keep lowering both employee wages and quality standards to meet Wal-Mart's price demands or automatically lose out to cheaper overseas labor? How Wal-Mart's stores have devastated small businesses all across America? According to the LA Times, today Wal-Mart uses over 3,000 Chinese factories to produce its goods - almost as many factories as it has stores in the U.S. (3,600). Remember when Wal-Marts had MADE IN THE USA painted on their front walls? Not anymore, they don't!

Check out the facts for yourself. Be sure help get the word out. Your job may depend on it.

Hi Bil,

Well, I used to work at Wal-Mart, remember? That has been ages ago. Well, they don't treat the employees with decent manners, and at least in China. Yuck. Thank god, I don't work for them anymore.

One of the funniest "Wal-Mart sucks" rants I've ever read. I love the line about Andy Dick and Bob Saggett...Beat your kids somewhere other than Wal-mart
