Wal-Mart Holds Food Drive - FOR ITS OWN EMPLOYEES

Via Lawyers, Guns and Money (which I really must blogroll), Ashley Lutz at Business Insider tells us YAWMS (Yet Another Wal-Mart Story):
A Cleveland Wal-Mart store is holding a food drive — for its own employees.

"Please donate food items so associates in need can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner," reads a sign accompanied by several plastic bins.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer first reported on the food drive, which has sparked outrage in the area.

"That Wal-Mart would have the audacity to ask low-wage workers to donate food to other low-wage workers — to me, it is a moral outrage," Norma Mills, a customer at the store, told the Plain Dealer.

A company spokesman defended the food drive, telling the Plain Dealer that it is evidence that employees care about each other.

Do I really need to say more?

I have not shopped in a Wal-Mart for something over 15 years that I am sure of, probably more like 20 years. This kind of thing is the reason. YMMV.
