Wal-Mart helps bankroll boosters

December 20, 2005


A committee of 16 people, partially financed by Wal-Mart Stores Inc., has organized Working Families for Wal-Mart, whose job will be to talk about what they see as Wal-Mart's positive contributions.

The group formed at a time when Wal-Mart has stepped up its responses to attacks from two political-campaign style groups backed by unions, who claim Wal-Mart is bad for its workers, their communities and the U.S. economy.

Steering committee members include Florida state Rep. Jennifer Carroll of Jacksonville; singer Pat Boone; and independent film maker Ron Galloway, who released "Why Wal-Mart Works & Why That Makes Some People C-R-A-Z-Y."

Wal Mart people need to see Robert Greenwald's film. Wal Mart is the most anti-American and unspiritual corporation in the world. I am sure we could find an even more corrupt one, but they aren't out there with TV commercials lying about how they help the poor. One example is encouraging their employees to seek public assistance. Oops! More corporate welfare
