To the Wal-Mart board of directors
I just wrote a quick note to the Wal-Mart Board of directors. They are meeting next week. I am joining thousands of people asking that Wal-Mart become more of a responsible corporate citizen.
I find it really hard to shop at Wal-Mart, I keep picturing all the hard, unpaid labour that goes into everything. I can't pick up clothes without seeing someone bent over a sewing machine, unable to take a bathroom break, making less money in a year than I make in an hour. Yah, stuff there is cheap. But I can't afford the space in my conscious.
How about, I use less stuff and they get paid more?
