WALMART IS POISONING OUR CHILDREN…

How many times do Chinese manufacturers -- purely in the name of profit -- have to make and market poisoned toys in through Walmart before parents get a clue and just say no to cheap plastic -- and poisoned -- crap from China? From the Los Angeles Times:
For China's low-cost jewelry makers, it was an open trade secret: The metal cadmium is shiny, strong and malleable at low temperatures, regardless of its health hazards. And it's cheap. Despite the risks, manufacturers in factories ringing this city on China's east coast say their top priority is profit. So offering cut-rate goods often means using lower quality materials, including cadmium, which is known to cause cancer. "Business is business, and it's all up to our client," said He Huihua, manager of the Suiyuan Jewelry Shop at International Trade City in Yiwu, a sprawling wholesale mecca where sellers pitch their wares in hopes of landing a lucrative export contract.
Walmart is known for saving more than a few dollars by exploiting the children of workers by using them as models in their flyers. That is done with the consent of parents and the kids get to be famous for a day or so. Buying and selling of cheap plastic -- and poisoned -- crap from China, however, is another matter. Could Walmart even stock its toy departments without cheap plastic -- and poisoned -- crap from China? Probably not. I smell yet another class-action lawsuit in the works.

    Wal Mart is a greedy corporation that allows theft by male employees in the store and uses and exploits women to make the men’s jobs easier. They claim they use a high ratio of women in their corporation but they have one token woman in their corporation as a CEO. That is so they can claim they see women as heads of companies.
    My credit cards were stolen while I worked for them for over a decade and they denied knowledge of the thefts, but when I wrote the corporate headquarters, they never even looked into it. They never asked their loss prevention manager Stacey to look into the thefts.
    I was told by employees of the store that only management and personnel had access to the employees lockers where my credit cards had been taken from and then taken out of the store and used at a beverage store in a nearby town.
    When I went to the cops, they didn’t even question the managers. The store employed only one county police officer to be security for the store, and it seems that they cover for the management if they steal from the employees, as well. Wal Mart is a company whose management should go to prison if they steal from employees. When will Wal Mart be unable to buy even public officials and live by the same rules as everyone else? They do not even protect their employees in other countries from simple safety issues such as locking and chaining doors to factories and then they don’t even issue public apologies like the Gap stores did. Put Wal Mart out of business so real companies can sell their products.
