Isn't it funny how this sort of idea is twisted and used against Wal-Mart?

If you were talking about a "mom-and-pop" shop - which many Wal-Mart haters vow are the reason they hate Wal-Mart - and used the same words above, people would say THAT's why mom-and-pop stores are so great.

I don't hate Wal-Mart. Why do you think so?

In fact, I don't like mom-and-pop stores either. They are pricey, never open when one needs them, and so on. And where I live, half of them employ illegal aliens whom they underpay and who don't get Soc.Security benefits and such.

But let's face it: Wal-Mart sqeezes all of its available resources until dry. And human labor is a resource just like anything else. And when it comes to pay and benefits, Wal-Mart is no Starbucks, that's for sure.
