New Anti-WM Coalition

Via The Box Tank. Stephen Greenhouse writes about the new coordination of anti-WM groups:

In the next few months, those critics will speak with one voice in print advertising, videos and books attacking the company, they say. They also plan to put forward an association of disenchanted Wal-Mart employees, current and former, to complain about what they call poverty-level wages and stingy benefits.

The critics have already begun lobbying in 26 states for legislation intended to embarrass Wal-Mart by disclosing how many thousands of its employees do not receive company health insurance and turn to taxpayer-financed Medicaid.

I don't know if one mallet is deadlier than a hundred bee stings.
