Employees at an Ohio Wal-Mart store are being asked to donate canned goods to help out co-workers who don’t have enough to eat at the holidays.
“Please Donate Food Items Here, so Associates in Need Can Enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner,” reads a sign near bins tucked away in an employees-only area at the Canton store.
Wal-Mart employees in Cincinnati and Dayton were scheduled to strike Monday to demand higher wages for cashiers, stock clerks and other positions at the retailing giant, which was the target of a blistering congressional report that found many employees were paid so little that they were pushed onto public assistance.
A Wal-Mart spokesman said the food drive, which was photographed and shared on social media, was proof that employees care about each other.
“It is for associates who have had some hardships come up,” said company spokesman Kory Lundberg. “Maybe their spouse lost a job.
Blood sucking, greedy, heartless b@st@rds. They probably don't have a clue as to why this is wrong they are so blinded by their own greed.
The money the small business owner's would have made, that would have stayed in the local economy, is funneled out to Sam Walton's hellspawn. Over 90% of the products sold in Wal-mart are manufactured overseas, the majority in China. Wal-mart is such a large buyer that they set the prices in many sectors and they're more often than not, lower than U.S. manufacturers can compete with.
Considering the Walmart family is the richest in the world whose estimated worth is around 93 billion, you would think they would have some heart and increase the salaries of their workers
An ironic thing is, how many of us complain about how evil Walmart is, yet still find ourselves shopping there anyway?

Why don't other unions chip in and help? It might help the unionization of Walmart!
