Is it acceptable at Wal-Mart?

Keeping in mind your morals and ethical views as well as criticisms against Wal-Mart, do you, as a consumer find it ok to shop at there? Why or why not?

[I am trying to answer this question for my senior research project, and was trying to get some input.]

    Please read the web sites I have written and Wal Mart and decide which offers credible and verifiable information.

    It is a decent corporation that is misguided by the current Chairman of the Board of directors and his brother.

    Their Global Ethics Office does NOT investigate harassment and Intimidation but they do age discrimination and sexual harassment.

    You can also email us at ethics@wal-mart.com or write to us at:

    Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.

    702 Southwest 8th Street,

    Bentonville, Arkansas, U.S.A.

    What is happening there wold not be accepted by Sam"Mr. Sam"(died in 1992), his wife Helen(died in 2007),and his brother "Bud"(died in 1995) and I recommend Bob Ortega from the New York Times.

    Wal Mart suppresses information with the help of the FBI. If the following web sites did not have verifiable information they would have been legally shut down as many have or bought out.

    Have you written your elected officials to investigate their employment practices? The Department of Labor or Department of Justice look into Wal Mart.

    On Friday night in Sylmar AJ was talking how he and Rosa were fired at Sam's Club 6625 under silly excuses. A lot of people are being fired at Sam's Club in San Fernando California. AJ was at the Cafe and Rosa was going from Demo to the Cafe Department.

    I will not under any circumstances shop at Wal-Mart. They do not pay their employees a living wage, they dictate the prices they will pay their suppliers and have caused the down town area of many town to become ghost towns. The people who have lost their jobs because of Wal-Mart moving to town eventually wind up working there for minimum wage. They have unfair business practices. I could go on and on but I think you catch my drift.

    Unfortunately, my family cannot afford to shop at other grocery stores unless they have a sale.

    I do not agree with WalMart's heavy handed approach to it's suppliers.
