Lovely lovely story….seems Wal-Mart does not pay any of its teenage baggers in Mexico any money to work there, they work for tips only. Sure, it’s legal down there, but still…from MSNBC:
“Wal-Mart prides itself on cutting costs at home and abroad, and its Mexican operations are no exception. That approach has helped the Arkansas-based retail giant set a track record of spectacular success in the 16 years since it entered Mexico as a partner of the country’s then-leading retail-store chain. But some of the company’s practices have aroused concern among some officials and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that Wal-Mart is taking advantage of local customs to pinch pennies at a time when its Mexican operations have never been more profitable.”
For a multi-billion dollar company to exploit a loophole like this is a travesty. This company makes more than enough money in Mexico to pay it’s employees and really make a difference in their lives. But instead they are after the almighty dollar, which is just one more reason I have never and never will shop there.
Wal-Mart = Injustice.
