    In the Spirit of Safety,


    Police departments are furious at Walmart for a policy that has made it a dangerous place to shop


    ... "It's ridiculous — we are talking about the biggest retailer in the world," Tulsa police Sgt. Robert Rohloff told Bloomberg, saying that the retailer forces taxpayers to pay for the police to do work that Walmart should be paying security to do.

    Worse, Bloomberg argues that the crime is a result of corporate policies. Cost-cutting policies that started in the early 2000s resulted in a drop in store quality, while the loss of greeters and the rise of self-checkout scanners made shoplifting and other illegal activities easier to engage in without employees noticing ...

    Wal-Mart Labor Group Asks Retailer to Sit Out of GOP Convention

    [​IMG]

    A group of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. employees and labor activists are asking the retailer not to support the Republican national convention, joining a chorus of organizations pressuring companies to distance themselves from the party and presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

    The group Making Change at Wal-Mart sent a letter to Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon on Thursday asking the country’s largest private employer to speak out against Trump’s “racist, misogynistic, anti-veteran, and Islamophobic” remarks. If Wal-Mart doesn’t respond by next week, the organization is planning protests at its stores and Trump’s properties. Making Change at Wal-Mart -- which has previously lobbied the chain for higher wages and better benefits -- also said it will petition the retailer’s customers to sign on to the letter.

    Sorry...I don't mean to hijack this threat but this is about another topic dealing with Wal-Mart and I had to post it . . . I don't shop at Wal-Mart because of its past sexist/racist treatment of women and minorities. Apparently that's changing and this is a good start. Back to topic. . .

    Not a problem NNQueen, no, not at all ... As you already know, great minds do think alike. I will consolidate a Thread in a New York minute for the Spirit and Intent of similarity and commonality, among other things for reasons that oft times escapes others.

    Who shops at Walmart? Walmart is the largest corporation using private prison slave labor. Boycott Walmart.

    These 7 Household Names Make a Killing Off Prison-Industrial ...

    WalMart. Although their company policy clearly states that “forced or prison labor will not be tolerated by Wal-Mart”, basically every item in their store has been supplied by third-party prison labor factories. Wal-Mart purchases its produce from prison farms where laborers are often subjected to long, arduous hours in the blazing heat without adequate sunscreen, water, or food.


    Prison Labor Boosts Wal-Mart’s Profits Despite Pledge
    One area in which Wal-Mart has profited through the use of prison labor is in “demanufacturing.” That term refers to the disposal of millions of dollars’ worth of “customer returns, buy-backs, over-stocks, shelf-pulls, scratch-and-dent, and excess inventories” that all large retailers must contend with, according to Al Norman, the founder of Sprawl Busters. What separates Wal-Mart from other retailers is its use of what amounts to taxpayer-subsidized prison labor in the demanufacturing process.

    By all means, please share what you have on the other usages of prison labor by Walmart, outside of demanufacturing.
