"FACTS" About Wal-Mart

Rick Gonyea (member of CARD of course) announced this morning on TOTT that area residents have the opportunity to hear the "real facts" about Wal-Mart. Where else to get reliable "facts" on Wal-Mart than from Lee Scott, CEO of Wal-Mart. You can tune in on channel 2 on Thursday to hear Lee Scott being interviewed by Charlie Rose.

Or, you can simply go HERE to listen and watch the interview on your computer. Beat the rush so to speak.

Watch the program and count the number of tough questions Mr. Rose asks Lee Scott. Hear the answers Lee Scott gives when asked about Wal-Mart labor violations. Wait....Rose doesn't ask that question.

Much has been made of Lee Scott's statement on the show about how business will solve the US healthcare problems and not government. Today, Lee Scott shows how his business is solving the healthcare crisis by shrinking health-care insurance options for new hires.
As of Jan. 1, the company will offer new hires only two health benefits packages in which the monthly premium can be as low as $11 but the deductible can reach $6,000, according to documents provided to The Washington Post by Wake-Up Wal-Mart, a union-backed group.
If you don't feel like watching the interview to get "facts" about Wal-Mart, just go to and you will get the same information.

Well - I tried to watch Channel 2 today. Good thing this is on several times because there is no way I can take it all at once.
