I’m confused about a thing. Why does everybody hate Wal-Mart?

I’m confused about a thing. Why does everybody hate Wal-Mart? I just saw an article on ripping the collective Walton family a new one for owning an inhuman empire, being rich, ruining America and abusing their workforce, and to prove its point Gawker printed letters from three thoroughly miserable former Wal-Mart employees.

There’s only one rational response to a story like this. HORSESHIT.
You know what? Find any business in the United States that employs minimum-wage labor and you’ll read THE SAME DAMN STORIES. They’re always oppressed, overworked, unappreciated, disrespected and pissed off. This isn’t unique to Wal-Mart ... it’s just a fact of life if you’re working for minimum wage at a large corporation. Instead of whining, go get an education, develop a marketable skill and GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE ALREADY. (Either that, or shut up about how much you hate your job. Thank you.)

I personally love Wal-Mart very, very much. In addition to an excellent website with large pictures, free shipping and cheap prices, their stores are packed with lots of low-priced groceries and well-polished produce. (Their deli isn’t too exciting but you can’t have everything.) I always shop online; about once a week Sam takes a short list to the Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market here in Mesquite that’s four minutes from Howdygram headquarters. We always find everything we need and sometimes things we DON’T need, such as Cool Whip.
Please also keep in mind that Wal-Mart’s store brands — Equate and Great Value — are both OUTSTANDING. We are especially fond of their butt wipes, green olives, imitation Cheez Whiz and arthritis pain pills. Equate body wash is exactly the same as Caress with the same exact fragrances and Great Value parmesan cheese is as good as Kraft at half the price. HALF THE PRICE! Be honest with me ... are you seriously willing to spend twice as much on grated cheese if you don’t have to? Of course not!
Thank you for allowing me to vent. I hope you and yours have a very pleasant evening.
