Same Sex Partnership - Walmart has very good employee benefits, and are competitive with many other national retailers. If you however, share a bedroom with a domestic partner of the same sex and Walmart finds out, then you are no longer entitiled to healthcare and other benefits.

This behavior sets them far apart from other national retailers like Target, Best Buy, Costco, Federated Department stores, Macy's, Walgreens, Sears and Kmart. All who do offer same sex domestic parternership benefits and who also happens to be Walmart's competition.

Transgender Discrimination - Employee turn over rates are historically high in retail business, usually retail employment especially for young people, serves as a starting place to gain work experience and a little income until a better high paying job comes along. The hours are long and the pay is generally low.

The turnover rates have more than likely stabilized somewhat due to the influx of immigrants into the US, who would gladly suck up these jobs and sastify Walmart's lust for low cost labor and high profits. Transgender employees, working for Walmart is risky, because Walmart has not expanded their non-discrimination policy to include gender identity.

Without those policies in place, transgender employees will face violence and harrassment in the work place and even termination on the job.

Bad Business Practices:

Human Food Safety - Wal-mart Stores is the largest corporation in the world, according to Fortune Global 500. That alone makes them the nation's leading grocer. With that kind of power, Walmart has immense impact on people's health and safety. With imports from all over the world and the continuing inability of the USDA to insure food safety, Walmart neglects to insure the products they sale to their customers are safe.

The tainted peanut butter sold by Wal-mart on their Great Value brand was found to be contaiminated with Salmonella. It caused hundreds of people to be sick, with many of them being children. Produced by ConAgra Foods Inc, based in Omaha, and a company whom themselves are suspect of good business practices, though not necessarily associated with food.

Toxic Clothes and Toys - U.S. PIRG, the federation of state Public Interest Research Groups takes on powerful interests on behalf of the American public. This group every year now has been applying pressure on Walmart to stop selling toxic and hazardous toys.

More Bad Business Practices:

Pet Food Safety -The poison pet food that killed so many cats and dogs were first discovered on the shelves of Wal-mart stores. The pet food contained a chemical called melamine, commomly used in commerical applications. How it got into pet food may have been through the unexplained presence of melamine in wheat gluten added to mass-produced dog and cat foods.

Since melamine uses include whiteboards, floor tiles, kitchenware, fire retardant fabrics, commerical filters, and all other types of composite materials, why in the hell would it show up in a food product designated for human or animal consumption?
