The Wal-Mart Wars

Queens, NY, has successfully prevented Wal-Mart from opening a 132,000 square-foot store in its back yard.

Wal-Mart says it's still looking at other sites in and around New York City.

Wal-Mart needs to begin to treat its employees like human beings rather than automata and extensions of a conservative political agenda.

Monopoly. Monoculture.

Once a mega-store wipes out all the small businesses, people who will have come to depend upon Wal-Mart's low prices will be at the mercy of not a score of small businesses who compete but of one mega-store that can then charge whatever it wishes because there are no alternatives.

"Pay more."
