    The source I took is Huffingglue Post, since they're anti-capitalist scum. So a positive Walmart article is new for them.

    Second look at the positives Walmart does. I am glad I shop there!

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/15/walmart-buy-american_n_2479636.html

    Article states:
    (1) 55% of Walmarts sales are in food, perishable home and beauty products which are overwhelmingly made domestically!

    (2) Walmart claims 2/3 of the items in their stores are either made or sourced in America!

    (3) Walmart has announced a campaign to increase Made in America purchase to the tune of $50 Billion!!!

    (4) Only 7% of it's sales come foreign made appliances.

    (5) Lastly, making an effort to hire 100K veterans! If your a vet you just go in and they hire you!!!!

    (6) Salaries as bad as advertised?

    My wife and I are making an effort to minimize our "WalMart Footprint" and stay away from them as much as possible. We've decided that WalMart from now on will be the "Store of Last Resort".

    Why? You think any of the other place you choose to go to aren't doing the same thing?

    If Wal Mart is going to start selling union made crap, they have lost me as a customer.

    The only reason Wal-Mart starts up with this "Buy AMerican" bullshit act every now and then is to get their foreign suppliers to lower their prices.

    Wal-Mart pledges to hire thousands of veterans and buy more US products over the next decade - The Washington Post

    The centerpiece of Wal-Mart’s plan is a pledge to hire veterans, many of who have had a particularly difficult time finding work after coming home from Afghanistan and Iraq. The unemployment rate for veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan stood at 10.8 percent in December, compared with the overall unemployment rate of 7.8 percent.

    Wal-Mart said it plans to hire every veteran who wants a job and has been honorably discharged in the first 12 months off active duty. The program, which will start on Memorial Day, will include jobs mostly in Wal-Mart’s stores or in its Sam’s Club locations. Some will be at its headquarters, based in Bentonville, Ark. or the company’s distribution centers.​
