the mind simply boggles.

Judge overturns Wal-Mart health care law

Maryland was requiring Walmart to put 8% of their payroll into healthcare. A measly 8%!

That's pretty sad.
I shop at Wal-Mart quite a bit, mainly because it's by far the closest place I have that has the things I need.
But it certainly wouldn't have broken their back - by any stretch of the imagination - to do this.
Corporate greed, that's all it is.

Wal-mart really does push the limits of credibility. They are hugely profitable, but expect the Government to pick up after them.
I'm lucky, I don't have to shop there. I can find everything I need at Target.

When you stop to consider the hidden costs behind Wal Mart, those low prices aren't really that low. And they use every slimey trick in the corperate book to oppress their workers. I had shopped there until I learned their dirty little secrets.

Walmart's just dirty. They try and look like they play nicely with others. But they're big corporate bullies.
