Something Was Missing - Poor Mr. Smiley

Poor Mr. Smiley has been demoted. Maybe he was involved in union talk or complained about poor pay and benefits. Or, maybe he just wasn't 'upscale' enough. Do you think he got severance pay?

Wal-Mart spends nearly as much each year to make us feel good about not paying health care costs for employees, locking immigrant workers inside stores overnight and firing managers who complain about unfair practices.... More here.

I've always wondered what that number ($1.6 billion per year) was. I figured that if the amount W-M spent on improving it's image was actually spent on addressing issues (paying health care costs for employees for example) it wouldn't have an image that needed improving.
