Sad but Almost True

Responding to teachers' unions pleas for the back-to-school crowd to boycott Wal-Mart, a commenter on Joanne Jacobs' blog laments Wal-Mart's low wages, while trying to figure out why a teachers' union should care about Wal-Mart:

Maybe the teacher's union figures Wal-Mart is about the best a public school graduate will be to do when they graduate. Also, many school teachers work part-time at Wal-Mart. If Wal-Mart paid better and had better benefits the teachers could quite working in the schools and just work at Wal-Mart full time.
