Today In Infuriating Practices By Big Business

Great New Yorker article on how Wal-Mart is hiring and co-opting the political left.

Typical.

And sickening.

Typically sickening.

This is a touchy subject in our family. My closest sister has worked for Wal-Mart for nearly seven years now. I wish they'd treat her, and all their employees, better.

I don't believe in Wal-Mart... but when you live in a big city you do not have too. I understand why small town people shop there. And yes it is "typically sickening."

Money talks. I am not at all surprised that Wal-Mart would try to co-opt the political left, and I am only slightly less surprised that those pretending to be "left" are for sale.

Being poor sucks, but being morally bankrupt is even worse.
