  • Wal-Mart is evil.

    Yes, they are close to being evil. The pay their employees a horrible wage even though the family who owns it makes tones of revenue each year causing many of their hard working people to be on food stamps. There was a study just recently that showed that if each basket of goods bought was increased by 14 cents, the workers there could have a wage between $9-10 and hour.

  • Evil is a strong word, but it fits

    WalMart is a good example of a company that is willfully attempting to weaken our democracy, suck up billions of taxpayer subsidies, put American entrepreneurs out of business and spreading poverty. They are also trying to reconfigure our tax system in ways that are horrible for the vast majority of Americans.

  • Yes It Is

    Wall-Mart is evil in that it is a corporation that only cares about growing larger and making more money for its owners. It does not care about its employees, it just wants to take advantage of its workers to pad the bottom line. Wall-Mart also often engages in bribery and coercion to gain political and financial influence around the world.

  • Absolutely it does

    Wal-Mart is evil. It will be our harbinger of doom. It is our demise. It is the apocalypse waiting to arise from the depths of nightmares. It has everyone's worst fears and put into a pit deeper than the bottomless of all. It will crush our purity, living hopes, dreams, and happiness and life.

  • They Are Very Evil

    Wal-Mart is definitely evil. You could make a strong case that they are the evilest company in the world right now. They consistently under-pay employees while asking them to do a lot. They also open up locations that lead to mom and pop store which leads to them closing down.

  • Wal-Mart Is Evil

    Wal-Mart is Monopolizing, provide minimum wage, supports child and labor abuse, continuously produced a poor America by sending 85% of our jobs overseas, Corrupts the environment, Mingle their way around the tax system, and worst of all brings violence to the communities and promotes a failing economic system. Screw their slogan, "every day low prices." More like, "every day someone loses a job."

  • Walmart business model is based on greed and the ability of the rich to extract wealth from others.

    Lets talk about the "Roll-back", sound like a great thing for consumers. However it is the main reason that Canada, USA and even Mexico manufacturing jobs have been shipped over seas.

    Lets talk about the story of office equipment, without saying which company, I'll talk about their experience. In the beginning they came into Walmart as the market leader in their space, Offered a larger discount for the promise of a large long term supply contract. Walmart agreed to the cost but asked for over 50% more invantory. This company agreed but had to borrow funds and gear-up for the order. 1 year later, Walmart asked for a better deal just a 3% rollback, in a tight spot 3% cut 50% of their margin but losing the contract would mean more. They agreed, Next Year Walmart asked for5% roll-back. This supplier

  • Catering to lazy people

    The Savings Catcher program (refunds customers the difference within 3 days if there is a lower price at a different store on something they bought) is a way to drive out rival businesses and "mom 'n' pop" stores. This kills the competition, paving a way only for themselves. A community should not be bought with low prices.

  • Yes,Wal-Mart is evil.

    There is a lot of evidence to suggest that Wal-mart can be considered evil.If capitalism is the religion of America,then Wal-mart can be considered the devil.Their practices shut down small competitors therefore drive down wages in a particular area.They also drive down vendors' prices to the point where they can not stay in business.

  • WalMart is not evil.

    WalMart has never threatened to put me in jail. WalMart has never invaded foreign countries. WalMart has never forced me to pay for anything I don't want. WalMart has never enslaved anyone and they have never stolen from anyone. People working at WalMart would logically have to think that it is in THEIR best interest to be working there. If higher paying opportunities are available for them and they still choose WalMart, it is their choice to work there. The true evil is stealing what they earn working there and giving it to people who choose not to work at WalMart.

  • NO. They are an honest business.

    Wal-Mart is just like any other business. Sam Walton worked just as hard as any other business man to make his business successful. Today Wal-Mart is a massive employer in America. The reason that Wal-mart pays its employees so little is because they shouldn't have to pay large wages for low-skill jobs.

  • Not Even Close

    Walmart does not drive out competition, but rather it destroys jobs that are no longer needed. This lets the surrounding area of Wal-Mart create jobs in other areas that Wal-Mart does not specialize in. If Wal-Mart was so "evil" in underpaying its employees, the employees can quit and find another job somewhere else. Wal-Mart provides lots of goods at very low prices, which help the people who are at the bottom of the socio-economic totem pole.

  • Evil would be elitism

    It's only if a place or corporation or company is elitist that it's bad. If they offer people products for money, I can't see how it's bad. People have to do the jobs they don't want to do. It's just part of life. If it was elitist, it'd be evil, but I don't see that being the case here.

  • Not evil at all

    Walmart is not evil at all. A lot of the same people that accuse Walmart of being so evil, enjoy the fact that they can buy a TV that would have cost $300 in the past for $200. If Walmart is so evil and horrible to their employees, how come they continue to have thousands of people work for them? Its a free country, no one has to work there. Most of the jobs at Walmart are entry level jobs, therefore they pay minimum wage. As you move up based on job performance, you start to get paid more. People seem to forget that youre not meant to make a good living in an entry level position, you need to work your way up the ladder, or use your work experience to get a better paying job elsewhere . To the most part, Walmart provides a vital part to the job market by hiring young inexperienced workers and giving them the experience to get better jobs on down the road. Everyone needs to start somewhere.

  • Good prices, good service

    Wal-Mart is virtually a monopoly, and they got there by being the best. Ridiculous prices, excellent service, smart financial decisions. Everyone benefits from Wal-Mart- the consumers, the investors, the factories, the owners, and yes, the employees as well. Of course they don't get paid much, it's a very easy job. Greed is not evil, especially when it benefits so many.

  • Not evil at all, just doing business.

    All persons as well as corporates start their businesses because they want to have money. So, they will do whatever it takes to get it. However, we can't forget mentioning the positive things this company makes. Eg. Green packing plastic bags, covered fridges at the dairy products áreas, reforestation, etc.

  • No. They may be a monopoly, but they aren't evil.

    Walmart is among the most successful companies in the world. Yes, they have forced a lot of small businesses to close their doors.... Walmart set out to be a place where consumers could find everything they needed; Groceries, tools, office supplies, you name it they have it.... They accomplished that. They do pay their employees less than some companies, but that hardly classifies a company as evil... Like all businesses, they are out to make money. And paying employees less yields more revenue. It is that simple.
