The fight for basic human rights expanded in Connecticut when a woman, with short hair, glasses and wearing a baseball cap, was asked to leave a Walmart bathroom. The bathrooms, particularly women’s bathrooms (so I’m told) all have stalls. Nobody sees nobody’s genitals. The ignorant bigots need to get a grip. For those of you […]

I haven’t watched Superstore yet, no television and all that, but I’ll order the DVD from the library when copies are available. This was my favorite bit from Brian Moylan review in Superstore: Walmart-inspired sitcom isn’t such a bad deal for The Guardian: Do they ever leave the store? No. Really? Who wants to spend […]
The short answer is, of course, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon is worth exactly what the (newly reshuffled) board says he is worth. Still, you think they might be aware of how the peasants (sometimes known as stock holders) are faring with all the, internal and external, changes the company is dealing with and tone down […]
Well, yes, Walmart is evil, but not in the way conspiracy kook C. Ervana would like you to believe. I ought not to be surprised that the conspiracy theories surrounding the mysterious closing of five stores last year continue; after all, 27 percent of Americans will believe anything. Just in case you had even a […]
I don’t always appreciate Bill Maher’s humor, but he hits enough home runs to make me ignore the foul tips and infield pop-ups. Especially when he points out how clueless businesses can be when they listen to their own flackery. (Note: I mentioned the Gun Oil story back on 23 September.) In my ongoing quest […]
Made in the USA can certainly be a game changer, but whose game is changed is a matter for debate. Over two days, more than a thousand meetings will take place between Wal-Mart buying teams and potential product suppliers, like KettlePizza. It’s part of the retailer’s commitment to buy $250 billion in Made in the […]
Everyone should listen to the entire speech—when was the last time any candidate for their party’s presidential nomination attracted more than 10,000 people to a speech 17 months before the election?—but if you just can spare the time, you should take note of what Bernie has to say at around the 21:00 and 41:30 time […]
I binge watched three seasons of the Netflix series House of Cards over the weekend and a smile came to my face when the below scene came up in season three. I’m sure that Francis Underwood is a strong supporter of the Bentonvile Behemoth. Jeff Hess: Have Coffee Will Write.
Growing up in rural Southeastern Ohio I was nightly treated to an experience that I have repeated only during massive power outages here at the other end of the state: a sky filled with stars. Light pollution, even here on the fringe of Cuyaghoga County, masks nearly all the stars in the night sky. Light […]
Doug McMillon is using carrots over sticks to convince that unionizing is not in their best interest, and my family experience with non-union companies is evidence that such a strategy can work, but Walmart may be in too deep a hole. The Daily Dot helps to dig the hole a little deeper. Walmart and unions […]
Fast forward to the 3:05 time mark if you must, but come on, how many people would ever expect Jon Stewart to deliver a positive message for Walmart? Perhaps because the company recognizes that with millions of employees on the payrolls, statistically there is no way to ignore the fact that there are members of […]
The original plans did not match city guidelines, and the company was given until Friday to submit revisions. When Walmart officials came before the Metro Louisville Planning Commission in December, the commission asked the company to consider design changes. Walmart said Friday that instead of making those changes, the company will ask the city to […]
video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player A new Walmart opened its doors in Northwest Harris County Wednesday morning, but not everyone is happy about it. Neighbors in the Copper Lakes subdivision say the Walmart Neighborhood Market in the 8700 block of Barker Cypress is too close for comfort. “It has just really robbed the peace and […]
