I certainly hope that Walmart is never considered a beacon of “American cultural values”. Wiping out small local businesses, locking people in stores overnight to work mandatory overtime, no overtime pay, substandard wages, no medical insurance coverage. Those are some of the other historical and current aspects of Walmart. You did not include them in your facts about Walmart. You might mention some facts about the massive wealth of the Walton family forged penny-by-penny on the backs of slave-wages pay of foreign workers and underpaid American workers. To top it off, other billionaires give at least a decent portion to charity. Walton’s are believed to give about 0.07% to charity. Mind you, no one is required to be charitable, but with all they get, one would expect them to give back.

That's the best read I've had for weeks on QC. Interesting comments mostly in the negative. We have an Asda (Walmart) where I live and my wife shops there occasionally...she prefers Morrisons which was founded independently about 10 miles away in Bradford. One constant niggle she has with Asda is the 'yellow ticket' which marks reduced prices on produce. When she arrives at the checkout, the till girl runs over the barcode, ignoring the yellow ticket. It is only when she checks her receipt it is clear that those discounts are ignored, and this seems to be common practice, or as she puts it 'deception' The till girl will not take responsibility and sends her to the customer service desk, where she (again) has to queue to have it rectified, which she finds maddening. What we have done in recent months is to put yellow ticket items in a seperate basket, highlight this to the till girl, then check it before continuing, which usually annoys the till girl as it takes extra time. We have pointed out that to overcome this problem, reduced items should be given a new barcode...surely it can't be that difficult ? That aside, She often finds it impossible to locate a member of staff in the aisles if she has a query, the Fish counter don't have any knowledge about fish...and the old woman on the cheese counter has filthy hands, so she doesn't buy cheese there. One sad and final fact is that my wife knows more people who have left Asda than still work there, and the reason is always the same. They hated it.

Walmart is not for me. They pay minimum wage, and their employees take welfare. Greed and not caring seems to be their motto. Sad and cruel.
