“Walmart needs to go back to its roots, and sell American made merchandise. Merchandise made by Americans in the good old U.S.A. instead of China.” -- Bela K., Georgia
“Wal-Mart needs to become more active in the local economy. They have driven out the mom and pop businesses so they need to fill the void. They need to give to local charities. Supports the local arts, and support local athletic events. Help parents defray costs for kids that have serious medical needs.” -- Mike Urycki
“Wal Mart: Be honest and open about your intentions and show that you care for the community.” -- Sarla B.
“1. Raise wages. 2. Cover all employees with healthcare coverage. 3. Hire new CEO.”
“Chances of Wal-Mart critics ever being satisfied are about the same as rule of supply and demand being repealed. You could give the workers everything the critics wanted and there would still be some complaints.” -- Ed
“Wal-Mart should not have to answer to critics. It is a publicly traded company whose policies are dictated by management via its shareholders. If the public stops shopping at Wal-Mart it would pressure the company to look at altering its policy. That is the only true way in a free capitalist society to "force" a change.” -- Fred G., Kentucky
“You know what, Wal-Mart is a business that uses a highly successful business model. They make huge profits by keeping our costs down and providing we the consumer with many needed products. I wish our present government was run like Wal-Mart. We would be one lean country. So lets get off Wal-Mart’s back and try to figure out how we can save our near bankrupt government.” -- Irma B.
“As a former employees Wal-Mart needs to raise the minimum wage for employees to $12.00 an hour and provide medical coverage to all employees whether it's in house medical care, or through insurance. Then and only then will Wal-Mart silence its critics. The company has a real problem with treating its employees poorly, i.e. the reason why I left.” -- Daniel, Virginia
“Employees are the ones that make Wal-Mart such a success that it is. They deserve the same consideration as its shareholders. Share the wealth." -- Douglas S.
Wal-Mart needs to just keep doing what their doing and the majority of us will be better off. It is unions who run our cities and states that cost the taxpayers the most in health benefits! DO THE MATH....” -- Kevin S., Rhode Island
“Let me tell you about our new Wal-Mart opening this Wednesday. It was built on the south side of town where most businesses have left over the years. There are no other businesses located on and around the Wal-Mart property, but it’s projected to "revive" the south side in time. This is a positive for Wal-Mart's image that 's not talked about much. They have more positives than negatives or they would not stay in business." -- Billy M., Texas
“By ignoring them.” -- Mike B, TN
“Wal-Mart can only quiet its critics if it completely changes its corporate policies and stops lying about the current ones. In other words, it cannot quiet its critics. Wal-Mart has been and continues to be one of the most potent forces for the race to the bottom for the United States. Bolstered by the lack of basic economic understanding by the bulk of the population who shops there, Wal-Mart forces wages and standards of living down in communities where it locates. By forcing the small businesses out of the communities where it locates and then by forcing its employees to depend on local, state and federal benefits for health care and even food stamps, Wal-Mart is pushing down standards of living while touting how it is saving its shoppers money. In Chicago the Wal-Mart fight is influencing the outcome of aldermanic elections with Wal-Mart spending unprecedented dollars against aldermen who opposed having Wal-Marts in the city. I will NEVER shop at Wal-Mart!” -- Holly H., Illinois
“Wal-Mart should simply say: If you don't like it the way it is.... go work somewhere else. The pervasive attitude of the working classes that they deserve to share in a company’s success is what killed the American auto and steel industries. If you want more pay, get educated so that you are worth more and offer a better product to American business.” -- Clyde N., Tennessee
