Wal-Mart Getting All Gayed Out?

Read the story, a boycott urged by the American Family Association, here. To determine if the story is true, click here. (Basically: Yeah, kinda." Less than careful readers might miss that the 5% donation applies only to sales made through the Metro DC [Gay and Lesbian] web site — that is, purchases made at Wal-Mart stores or through Wal-Mart.com are not part of the'5% donation' scheme." And if you boycott, be sure to boycott in Christian Love.

Media is so dangerous. Now what if Wal Mart gets boycotted by people that think their Decatur dollars are being siphoned off for gays? All because of some bad headline. So what if gay people shop at Wal Mart and Wal Mart returns a miniscule percentage. That kind of stuff goes on all the time for charities and promotions.

Let's boycott Wal-Mart because they refuse to keep their employees out of the welfare line!!!! Let's boycott Wal-Mart because they discrimate against women!!!! Let's boycott Wal-Mart because they have a firm hold on the wholesalers and WM gets to set the prices!!!! Let's boycott WM because they screw their workers out of overtime!!!

What Walmart in Decatur does is goes to Frilly's late on a Saturday night and buys rounds for their gay friends. It helps to keep them happy.

OH MY GOD!!!! Are people really that stupid???? Let's boycott Wal-Mart because they are screwing EVERYONE over and hard too!!! Let's boycott Wal-Mart because they refuse to keep their employees out of the welfare line!!!!(It's retail work....you can't work as an hourly with any retail company and make make money hand over fist) Let's boycott Wal-Mart because they discrimate against women!!!!(I've been passed over for promotions so many times because they picked a less qualified woman over me) Let's boycott Wal-Mart because they have a firm hold on the wholesalers and WM gets to set the prices!!!!(Welcome to capitalism...no one is forcing those wholesalers to sell to us) Let's boycott WM because they screw their workers out of overtime!!!(Since when is ANY company obligated to give workers overtime?)

Yeah, Wal-Mart is forcing the wholesalers to sell to them!!! If they don't keep their prices where WM wants them...they will lose their business. WM is much bigger than the store in Decatur!! I recommend the documentary on WM
"The High Cost of Low Prices." Maybe you'll get a better idea of how WM is screwing everyone!!!!!

Do you mean to tell me that it is ok that the largest corporation in the world will not pay their employees a living wage???? Instead they tell them to get on welfare!! That is their benefit package. Great, I guess taxpayers don't mind paying for the benefit package for WM. I personally have a HUGE problem with that. I'm sure the woman that got hired over you was simply a token!!!

I read "The High Cost of Low Prices" and it's a bunch of gobblety-goop. Did you know that the average wal-mart hourly wage is around $9.50 an hour? That's pretty frickin' good in the retail world. I've worked for Wal-Mart for over 9 years in 5 differents stores, and I have never been told, nor have I heard anyone tell an employee to go get on welfare.

I don't know where you get your facts...but they aren't facts.
