Needless to say, as the biggest retail chain in the world, nearly everyone did as Wal-Mart told them to do. American factories shut down and production moved to the sweat shops over there. No more EPA or OSHA to worry about, no more restrictions, rules, unions, fees, permits, fines, inspections, worker’s compensation, Social Security, retirement plans, paid vacations, sick days, insurance, and other perks and benefits paid to American workers.
So, yes, you are able to buy things cheaply at Wal-Mart. But what is the real cost to all of us and our country? Spread your purchasing to other companies, like Target, K-Mart, Sears, Penney’s, and others. Don’t do all your shopping at a store that has become un-American.
