Wal-Mart Should be Emulated

That's a Lawsuit spent last summer working at Wal-mart, and has some level-headed words for WM opponents:

These days it seems that all of the "cool people" will bash Wal-Mart. It is now trendy to cry out against the "evil empire" known as Wal-Mart. The fact of the matter is, the people that are making these claims are doing so on only bits of information and false information that they have heard....

Wal-Mart is not a perfect company but then again no company is perfect. If you are going to dislike a company, dislike it after hearing all the sides. They act like a normal company would in minimizing competition, they treat their employees well, and they provide the consumer with cheap prices. Seems like all sides are made happy. Wal-Mart may or may not have had problems with their employees in the past. Even if they did, isn't there something to be said for fixing their ways and cleaning up their act? That is the act of a socially responsible company and I know for a fact there are other companies out there that should really model themselves after Wal-Mart. Ponder THAT.
