Opposition to Wal-Mart universally understood
Satirical news site The Onion gets laughs with it’s Wal-Mart headline (below) because the mega-retailer is so roundly loathed in the United States.
That’s a knee-slapper because as you know, hundreds of cities have fought and won to stop Wal-Mart from locating in their area, as shown in the movie Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price. Eureka is listed in the movie, but thirteen years later will get one anyway as the poverty-pushers sneak in the back door free of any pesky public input.
Of course, there is opposition but Eureka appears doomed to become the next slum on the Wal-Mart map.
The Eureka Wal-Mart is now hiring 200 “associates” according to a press release. Lucky workers could be worth a fortune — but only after they and die and Wal-Mart cashes in its dead peasant life insurance policy on employees. Workers families get squat (unless they sue the behemoth in court) but Wal-Mart gets a return on its investment.
Just one more reason to abhor your sleazy corporate masters.
