Won’t set foot in Walmart

November 30th, 2014 · No Comments

from counterpunch:

I won’t step foot in a Walmart for that reason and a multitude of other reasons including the following:

1. Walmart funds corporate “environmental” NGOs that support neo-liberal environmental policies including fake “marine protected areas” and “catch shares” programs that devastate fishing families around the world. Don’t support any group, such as the Nature Conservancy, Ocean Conservancy and EDF, that receives Walton Family Foundation money! If you’re an angler, why support anti-fishing groups by buying garbage at Walmart?

2. Walmart funds the school privatization “charter school” movement, awarding behests to organizations run and promoted by corrupt politicians like Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson and his wife Michelle Rhee.

3. Walmart drives sustainable, family-owned businesses out of communities around the world, replacing local businesses with its ugly, junk-filled mega-stores.

4. Walmart underpays and badly treats its workers, as documented in numerous reports.

5. Walmart is one of the biggest corporate welfare queens on the planet, urging its employees to apply for government assistance because of the low salaries and paltry benefits it provides its workers.
