39 New Wal-Marts
Just another example that crime pays. Wal-Mart opened 29 "supercenters" and ten of its regular "discount" stores on Wednesday.

Wal-Mart has bent or broken every rule and principle of fair play in order to provide dirt-cheap prices, not to mention a lot of laws. People who shop there are supporting sweat-shop labor, the destruction of labor unions, the destruction of downtowns, and the destruction of local business. Wal-Marts generally have a negative impact on jobs as well, since the stores they put out of business with their ill-gotten low prices generally employed more workers than Wal-Mart does.
