I'm for helping community where/when I can. But convenience, low cost is difficult to refuse.
Curiously, of the people and these commenters who said "don't go/won't return", how many have shopped there since...

Eight years ago this appeared and still as valuable as day one. Help reset your moral compass, watch this and never again shop at always low wages...

This is a must see. Good perspective on Corporate Bamboozal and makes you wonder where your community's hard earned dollars go.

Not a title you will see in the DVD section of your local Wal Mart store.

Clean language and suitable for young people who may want to put their lifestyle in perspective with others.

If you watch this you'll never want to shop at a Wal-Mart ever again!

When I first got this, I expected a radically conservative message that centered on attacking corporations like Wal-Mart using the argument that they take up most of the economy... Well I got that.... and so much more of an argument that I actually agree with the stance they have. A mall recently opened including Target, Best Buy, Marshalls, and Costcos, some of the biggest names in superstores. When they first came everyone thought it would bring use to unused territory and loads of money for local stores.... They were wrong. My aunt owns a restaurant and ever since that place opened all the money has been sucked up. The reason? Well for food places, Costcos is so cheap that people can buy lots of food for less. For clothing stores, Target and Marshalls can outcompete them with specials all the time. Basic outcome: only the strongest of the few survived. New people are buying out old stores and opening chain restaurants... Therefore watch thsi video to understand what is happening to this world.

The message is strong and true and delivered with a punch. Quite a wake-up call to any who were unaware of such horrible business practices. Down with Wal-Mart!
I highly recommend this movie, it was great.

What this film lacks in editing quality and high tech effects it makes up for in a powerful message and truck loads of evidence to convince us that Wal Mart is the ultimate evil when it comes to retail and low prices.
Watch it, you'll never want to even enter a Wal Mart again!
