The Wal-Mart Times

The Pensacola News Journal prints an op-ed where the columnist criticizes Wal-Mart’s poor treatment of workers.

Local Pensacola Wal-Mart stores tell the newspaper to remove News Journal newspaper racks from the front of their stores.

One of the local Wal-Mart managers then tells the paper’s editor that if they fire the guy who wrote that column, that then they could talk about selling the papers at Wal-Mart again.

[Update]

Looks like Wal-Mart has backed down and will allow the paper to sell on their property again.

  1. I f***ing hate Walmart. Plus, they’re opening stores in China now. US now exports our best crap, after McDonalds and Nike…

  2. Shalom Y’all,

    For what it’s worth, Wal Mart corporate overroad the local manager’s decision and the paper is back in the good graces of the Bentonville Behemoth.

    B’shalom,
