They are quite accustomed to bribing governments, but no doubt other businesses that might stand in their way as well. They are a disgusting company.

It's becoming a WalMart World. YUCK! When you visit a foreign country, it would be great to NOT see Golden Arches, a Friggin' WalMart sign...and the glut of other US companies infiltrating and destroying native culture.

They are no different than all these companies and industries that do the same to us. We are not owned by ourselves anymore. We are owned by them and their lobbyists.

Noted. So, this is how they spend chunks of their profiting off paying workers such low wages.

"family owned" how folksy can ya get? Actually, Walmart was the only store in Jalisco Mexico that I could get a sewing machine...Singer....made in Vietnam!
ps If you have an old Singer or Kenmore...metal one...they sew better than the new plastic pieces of ka-ka made now! Worth tracking down obscure places to get replacement parts...they are built like the old Buicks!!!

In Mexico, anything can be bought or sold - from a gun to a multi-million dollar corporation- not a big surprise; neither is the information about Brazil.

How naive to think fukmart is doing their bribing in Latin America! They are doing it here in the USA as well. Los angeles' Chinatown is getting a fukmart that got approved at the 11th hour, and anyone who thinks that bribery was not involved is not only naive but gullible. Fukmart is the death for small business owners! This fucorporation is EVIL. No employee benefits, fair pay, insurance etc... The 5 Walton's are amongst the worlds richest people. Their employee 's get slave labor pay. So rethink buying at this destructive monopoly!
