Up Against The Wal-Mart


Coming To A Living Room Near You

Did you know that Wal-Mart is not only the world's largest retailer, it's also the world's largest company, and yet many of their employees make below poverty level wages? Did you know that when they build a new Wal-Mart in town, they put many smaller businesses out of business...on purpose? Did you know that even though they once promoted themselves with the slogan, 'Buy American' in truth the majority of their products come from China? Did you know that over half the employees of WalMart cannot afford the health insurance offered by the company? Did you know that they've gotten into major trouble for forcing workers to work off the clock?

And did you know that there's a new documentary movie being released later this month that exposes all the evil-doings of Wal-Mart? And did you know that you can help to promote the film?! Well, now you do.


"WAL-MART: THE HIGH COST OF LOW PRICE is a feature length documentary that uncovers a retail giant's assault on families and American values. The film dives into the deeply personal stories and everyday lives of families and communities struggling to fight a goliath. A working mother is forced to turn to public assistance to provide healthcare for her two small children. A Missouri family loses its business after Wal-Mart is given over $2 million to open its doors down the road. A mayor struggles to equip his first responders after Wal-Mart pulls out and relocates just outside the city limits. A community in California unites, takes on the giant, and wins!"

That quote is lifted from this website which encourages people to get involved in a grassroots campaign to put Wal-Mart out of business. Well, not really. But at least to hold them accountable for their many, many transgressions.



Let The Witchhunt Begin!


Much has been written about the unscrupulous business tactics of big corporations. But no corporation seesm to flaunt their unscrupulousness quite as openly as Wal-Mart. So filmmaker Robert Greenwald, the same man behind last year's 'Outfoxed', has decided to take on the giant behemoth by hitting them where it hurts...a scathing documentary that exposes the corporate giant's game plan for becoming the world's largest company at any cost. Oh, wait a minute, they already are!



Putting On An Unhappy Face



If you feel like getting involved, here's the place to go:

www.walmartmovie.com

You can sponsor your very own premiere of the film in your very own home, if you sign up soon enough. Otherwise, you can order your copy of the DVD at the site. Something tells me they won't be carrying this movie at Wal-Mart.
