    Not destruction just money... but if they destroy the world and get there money then they are happy... actaully no they aren't they'll just want more money. This world revolves around money, and I to think I had always thought it was magnetism.....

    sad just sad thats all i have to say.

    and as an archaeologist let me say this once its out of the ground its gone, nothing new can be learned from it, in essence the knowledge that it could have revealed is lost forever. This, along with just about everything else wal-mart stands for, are the reasons that i will never shop there.

    That sucks... of all the stores, it has to be Wal-Mart, too...
    I don't understand what they mean by 'pyramid Wal-Mart,' though. Are they referring to the site of the store, or are they building it to look like a pyramid? That would be unbelievably tasteless.

    Yeah, this is old news. Heard this on The Daily Show last year. That's right, that's where I get my news. And I take enormous pride in that fact.

    At the risk of being shot....... I like WalMart.

    I won't shoot you flytrapgurl, I think wally world get's a bad rap just like Microsoft, sure, both companies make bad decisions from time to time, but they exist for a reason, to make money, and as corporate power houses go, they are pretty low on the scale of bad companies, I can think of far worse (have worked for some.)

    I am not defending their actions in MC, or debating the employment figures, just giving my 2 cents (and definatley not looking for an argument!)

    For FTG and RP,

    thousands of jobs have been lost here in Rochester as a direct result of Walmart.
    all those American jobs are now held by Chinese workers making pennies an hour.
    because Kodak cant afford to build single use cameras in America for the prices Walmart demands..
    so manufacturing HAS to go to China to give Walmart what it wants..
    for the company, its "move to China" or lose walmart's business completly..so the Company keeps some profit by moving to china, (as opposed to nothing if not going to China), so on the corporate level it "makes sense"..the shareholders stay happy for a few more years..but at the expense of thousands of american jobs..
    the same thing is happening to countless other companys and jobs..

    Walmart basically killed the company Rubbermaid.
    it was a well-known, quality American brand, products made in America by American workers..now the whole company's production is moving to China..because they cant sell to Walmart at the prices Walmart demands and still pay American wages..
    Rubbermaid will still exist..but all its employess will be Chinese.

    Walmart demands that our jobs go to China...because they demand that everyone sell products to them at low prices..
    on the corporate level, its "move to China or die"..

    you can love Walmart as long as your job is still here..
    but you wont be able to shop there anymore once you are unemployed because Walmart moved your job to China..

    hundreds of small towns across America have been agressively fighting to keep Walmart OUT of their towns!!
    why would they do that if walmart was such a bonus??
    because they know Walmart puts every other small buisiness OUT of buisness..
    sure, it "creates jobs"..but it creates less jobs than it destroys, and the jobs it does create are minimum wage with no benefits..

    and on and on and on...there are thousands of reports like those..im not making this stuff up.
    I personally know dozens of people who are now unemployed because of Walmart..some have found new jobs, many havent..
    most have had to uproot their families and move somewhere else in search of jobs, and usually for jobs making far less money, and less (or no) benefits than before..
    I havent set foot in a Walmart in 5 years..and never will again.
