  1. Much of the anti-Walmart publicity omits factors. For example, several years ago in WA state media publicized that many WalMart employees were getting public assistance. But so were employees of many other businesses, antis and media did not reveal that but someone later made the point. The reason for getting assistance was not WalMart but individual factors.

    One former employee got in print praising WalMart for helping her, including that they were flexible with her needs such as to take a child to the doctor.

    I also note the number of WalMart employees who physique and appearance would be rejected by other employers. (WalMart might however offer obesity counselling – that slows productivity.)
