Since Walmart first wormed its way into our neighborhoods with its 'Made in the US' promise back in the early 90's, it's done much to fatten its
wallet and treat workers like disposable garbage.
Also, I can't for the life of me find one american made item in my local Walmart.
They refuse to hire full-time workers. If you need health insurance, Walmart wil never grant you enough hours to earn it. Here is their latest
loophole to avoid doing so:
Walmart's Everyday Hiring Strategy: Add More
The new hiring policy is to ensure "we are staffed appropriately," when the stores are busiest and is not a cost-cutting move, said company spokesman
David Tovar. Temporary workers, he said, are paid the same starting pay as other workers.
Wal-Mart already has begun to change the healthcare plans it provides workers. Last November, it said that newly hired part-time employees would have
to work a minimum of 30 hours a week, up from 24 hours previously, before they can qualify for health coverage.
So they never have to pay above starting pay, never have to offer medical benefits. Pretty underhanded.

They will never let an employee work enough hours to qualify for medical benefits. 'Made in the US', my batooty.

Unless recycling starting wage employess is something the US endorses.
