I like Walmart Supercenters but I think this may benefit small businesses which is good.

It's amazing how inconsistent people are when it comes to Wal*Mart. They rail against the company for this or that, while talking about how much they prefer Target or another, similar store. The hypocrisy lies in the fact that Target et al do the exact same things. But since Wal*Mart is the most successful, they're the "evil" one.

The hypocrisy (or simple ignorance of the obvious) is astounding.

As for the OP, I hadn't heard about it.

I've noticed WalMart had less selections on their shelves, but so do a whole lot of other stores.

I also know people who work at WalMart and their pay is comparable to any other retail store.
