These folks have something to say "Thanks" for next week. Maybe we all ought to get into this collective shopping spree.  Other than slaving away to slowly pay the huge interest rates of often 29 to 35% does anyone else have a better answer?

Alexandra Real's curator insight, March 13, 2014 3:28 AM

Who knew that such low cost store, great for customers, would be discriminate against their worker. I recently saw a video in my sociology class and wanted to do further investigation on the topic and know what has happened up to date.

The fact that there has been a protest against Walmart is excellent! It's good for individuals to become aware of what Walmart is doing to its workers. It basically controlled and modern day slavery. 

I think what this needs is insight on the perspective of the protesters and reason as to why they are protesting and insight for the police as to why they arrested them. 

I think this news story should have been given more attention. If individuals new the dirty inhumane deeds Walmart has, they to would be enraged as I am.

Good to see this is being discussed. Hope everyone realizes how important the idea of privacy is and is willing to stand up for it. Trading freedoms and privacy for security is a bad trade.
