We F@#king HATE Wal-Mart

You know the plan was to keep the focus on the ONE project today, but those total bastards at Wal-Mart just won't have it. MaxSpeak points out an article in today's Washington Post:

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. yesterday said approval of a bill that would require it to boost health care spending in Maryland could endanger its plans for growth in the state, including a new distribution center that would employ as many as 1,000.
Wal-Mart doesn't want to give it's employees health-care because it hurts their bottom line. Really, how else can you maximize profits if you aren't sticking it to your workers? Hell, Wal-Mart is so bad that most of it's employees are considered to be below the poverty line:
Working for Wal-Mart
Forbes magazine, polling business executives (not employees) has ranked Wal-Mart among the best 100 corporations to work for. Yet the employees on average take home pay of under $250 a week. The salary for full-time employees (called "associates") is $6 to $7.50 an hour for 28-40 hours a week, which is typical in the discount retail industry. This pay scale places employees with families below the poverty line, with the majority of employees' children qualifying for free lunch at school. When closely examined, this amounts to a form of corporate welfare, as the taxpayer subsidizes the low salaries. One-third are part-time employees - limited to less than 28 hours of work per week - and are not eligible for benefits.

Where did we get that? From PBS's STORE WARS

Wal-Mart = Total Bastards
