Donna Guyer, Lawrence, discusses her financial prospects and why she's applying to work at the Wal-Mart opening on Sixth Street.

Donna: Don't you realize that Wal-Mart is going to force you into dark tunnels like the kids in The Temple of Doom to work like a dog with absolutely no health insurance, no consideration for your personal needs, pay you below minimum wage (because the Repubs are in the Walton family's back pocket and crafted a minimum wage loop hole just for Wal-Mart), and otherwise take about 10-20 years off of your life? They're evil!Well, at least you have a taste for what I'm sure will come...
Hope you get a position Donna, good luck and congrats!
Jason,Lay off the drugs before you post.
Wal-Mart is evil...pure evil.......Don't do it Donna, don't do it!!!Jason is right.Read this book:Slam-dunking Wal-Mart! : how you can stop superstore sprawl in your hometownBy Al NormanWatch this movie:Is Wal-Mart good for AmericaI lived in Bentonville for a time, and know first rate how evil they are.
dear Wal-martian:I wish to nominate a very worthy and deserving character for your critical and vital job of "greeter." There is a poster on this board who would be a tremendous assett to your operation. with this submission, I hereby nominate Hawkpirched for Wal-mart greeter, especially for the high traffic 2p.m. to 10p.m. shift as he has such positive things to say about college students, women, mothers of KU students, and his own neighbors. so, please give Hawk every possible consideration, he needs this job. just don't give him internet access with it, please. thanks,lawrence resident/wal-mart customer
woodenfleaeater,Both of your citations are loaded with mis-information. Norman had his own agenda (besides marketing and increasing sales) and Young's previous work for PBS "Frontline: Can You Afford to Retire?" was panned by economists as not portraying reality and using isolated examples for sensationalism. One can assume the same about his "Is Wal-Mart good for America".Most of the critique in both can be applied to every mass merchandising retailer in America (Sears, Target, Home Depot, Best Buy, K-Mart, Penny's, etc. etc.). Most of which offer fewer benefits and lower pay than Wal-Mart.Here is a much better representation. An actual account rather than a media exploitation.http://boingboing.net/2009/02/01/life…
