Wal-Mart <3 Democracy

Here’s a fun one.

Wal-Mart is apparently forcing its managers to sit through meetings explaining that unions are evil, that if Democrats win the 2008 elections then there might be more unions, and that how much this potential Axis of Labor Evil could hurt Wal-Mart, and possibly bring about the apocalypse maybe.

But, insists Wal-Mart, they are in no way trying to tell its managers how to vote.

Perish the thought.

(interesting factoid at the bottom of the article, though: “Twelve years ago, 98% of Wal-Mart’s political donations went to Republicans. Now, as the Democrats seem poised to gain control in Washington, 48% of its $2.2 million in political contributions go to Democrats and 52% to Republicans”)

  1. Well, considering Obama and the Democrats have already assured Corporate America it need not worry about their election, Wal-Mart donating to the Democrats doesn’t surprise me in the least.

  2. What a bunch of HYPOCRITES!!!!! Walmart is the most evil of ALL!! Shutting down small businesses run by americans, so we can have this big super blob of corporate greed, banishing whatever we had left of independent businesses. Oh and they also run sweat shops overseas for cheap labor, yeah these guys really need to watch out for the real evil!!!!!!
