It's fashionable to pile on Wal*Mart. Here in America we root for the underdog and generally don't like any person or organization who might possibly be too big for his breeches.
Unions are anti-Wal*Mart, saying it doesn't pay its employees fair wages. Apparently they could be working somewhere else for far more money. But that isn't the point. Wal*Mart is bad, that's all there is to it. The Washington State NEA affiliate, which reimburses teachers for extraordinary expenses they undertake on behalf of students (such as purchasing winter coats for kids who don't have one), will no longer reimburse receipts from Wal*Mart. What does the NEA platform say about Wal*Mart specifically?
It's pretty obvious I'm a Wal*Mart fan. Here's yet another reason why.
