    Childish. Old neighborhoods deteriorate,new ones are built. This is a fact of life. Walmart didn’t create it. It existed long before. Our downtowns have a mishmash of hundred year old buildings. To criticize the appearance of Walmart stores is just ludicrous. If you don’t like Walmart,lobby to keep it out. Many love it. I do. Look at the parking lot. Those are Walmart supporters. To suggest that Walmart destroyed small town America is just as ludicrous. Consumers choose it over the small stores. Childish. Old neighborhoods deteriorate,new ones are built. This is a fact of life. Walmart didn’t create it. It existed long before. Our downtowns have a mishmash of hundred year old buildings. To criticize the appearance of Walmart stores is just ludicrous. If you don’t like Walmart,lobby to keep it out. Many love it. I do. Look at the parking lot. Those are Walmart supporters. To suggest that Walmart destroyed small town America is just as ludicrous. Consumers choose it over the small stores. They killed downtown America,by not shopping there. It’s like blaming guns for shootings...It’s the shooters fault. To suggest that Walmart pays too low a wage which causes social government spending is ludicrous as well. Walmart pays a competitive wage...that is why there are Walmart employees. Retail wages are low. They were before Walmart. If the government wants to subsidize this fair wage,then so be it. Don’t blame Walmart. They pay what they need to pay to get workers. If Walmart payed all its profits to workers each year they would make $4,000 more a year...but the company would liquidate. The old widows who rely on a pension would be sadly disappointed. Truth is, return on assets employed run about 5%. Not an exorbitant amount. Ever see a suburban retail row of big stores and malls? Were there any stores other than Walmart there. Did Walmart ruin the building materials mom and pops as claimed...or was that Home Depot? These are just a small sample of the thoughts running through my mind as I read this piece of trash. Gotta go now...need a few things from my neighborhood store....a Super Walmart.

    This non fictional account of the mega corporation known as Walmart will make one pause before shopping there. It analyses the destruction these box stores have had on Main streets in small cities and towns. It warns suppliers that getting a large production contract from this giant could be no more than a suspended death sentence.

    This is a book I read real quick last year (2019) while in Lenexa. I have not been a Walmart fan for quite some time, but I did not realize their practices were quite so ugly.

    Good: * Pulls no punches. Bad: * That much hatred inside a book can't be healthy. * Many of the problems covered in the book also apply to other giant supermarkets, not just Walmart.

    It is an interesting read. You definitely feel the deep hatred that the author has for Walmart.
