Another reason to hate Wal-Mart

August 2, 2007

It turns out that Wal-Mart pays teenagers $0/hr. to “volunteer” in their stores in Mexico. (Read full story here.)

Gosh, I wonder why there are so many people emigrating from Mexico to the U.S.

The long-term solution to our immigration has been and continues to be international economic reform, creation of real jobs in developing countries, and the end of so-called “free trade” zones, which facilitate the expansion of exploitative supergiants like Wal-Mart.

    Well, I read the article, felt angry, remembered some stories kids I worked with in Baltimore would tell me about Wal-mart, got angrier, but I was still ok. Then…I made the mistake of reading the comments and felt sad for the world. So much misplaced anger, frustration, racism, etc.

    Loved the Wal marx poster.

    I didn’t look at the comments–sounds like I should be glad I didn’t!

    I’m too stoned on the opium of the masses to comprehend what you’re saying, man.
