This is a very informative dvd. But I have to say that most of the negative things they say about WalMart can be said of most big businesses worldwide. It's a dog eat dog world out there. Corporate shareholders demand more and more profit and they all try to squeeze as much as they can out.

Entertaining show that takes a look inside the world of retail. I do not blame Walmart for all the damage it has done over the past decades but it does show how vulnerable big companies like Sears and Kmart have let themselves become. Walmart comes into smaller towns like a steamroller and hurts those who cannot or will not change. Employees of Wally World are underpaid but at least they do have jobs which are better than no jobs at all. What is the answer? Perhaps if you can't beat 'em join them?
