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”)
