Yippee! It's nice to know that, even in this day of capitalism on steroids, that people can still win.

Good news!


For years now, Food & Water Watch has been examining the anti-competitive, anti-sustainability and anti-health impact Walmart exerts on communities across the nation. Despite its drumbeat of claims to the contrary, our analysis has repeatedly shown that Walmart isnít a good neighbor to anyone.

Ty, Cal.
