This Makes Me Hate Wal-Mart Slightly Less

In move of generosity atypical of the retail giant, Wal-Mart has exceeded all previous years of fiscal reward to its employees, giving over 2 billion dollars this year, according to an article in CNN.

Personally, I'm far from singing praises. Wal-Mart is one of the few companies that are thriving as a result of the recession, posting solid gains for 2008. The least recently appointed CEO Mike Duke can do is give his employees a piece of the pie- although Wal-Mart doesn't exactly have a stellar history for treating its employees well...

  1. No, but the treatment of employees usually doesn't drive customer demand.

    I'll freely admit to shopping at Walmart and Sam's Club, now more than ever. It's cheap, you get moderate to high quality goods, and they have a pretty kickin' return policy.
