This is a place for Debate on what you think of Walmart, the new superpower. We all have our own opinions on this and you have the right to express them, but Please do not lose sight of the issue and lets not attack eachothers personal charcacters. Feel free to start a new topic at anytime.That's all. Happy chatting from your host, Muriel Shickman
I am contacting you on behalf of Wal-Mart Watch to inform you of a new product safety initiative currently being addressed by the Wal-Mart activist community in Consumer Testing. Product recalls have been a constant problem affecting employees and consumers.
In fact, only a few days ago Wal-Mart has been found selling wooden play-sets with defective equipment, endangering the lives of children around the country according to Consumer Reports.
Wal-Mart has consistently been among the leading culprits in selling recalled and potentially fatal products to the general public.This has been the result of their manipulative efforts to undermine quality product testing.
We are calling for Wal-Mart to have an established independent testing organization inspect products properly before put on the store shelves.
To help us take action and highlight the danger that Wal-Mart presents to small towns nationwide we are asking people to link to our new page http://www.consumertesting.org.
I don't believe in mistreating workers. But consider this: a lot of people would be very happy to have a job at walmart. Many people are without any job. It makes me angry that people get paid a lot and take an hour lunch every day and sit behind a desk inside all day and say they are working. Many people want to be hard workers and would be happy to replace these people. I've gone plenty of times without lunch, whether working or at home.
