    A donation box in the store so customers will FEED WAL-MART WORKERS.

      The food drive is in the employee-only area, and only for other Wal-Mart workers to contribute to. The original Business Insider report was updated to make that clear.
      That said, it is still truly outrageous that instead of paying a living wage, they are making an area available for some poverty waged workers to donate food to other poverty waged workers.
      So-- poverty wages from the distant upper echelons, permission for food drive from the the on site manager who is probably some kind of human being? I'm speculating.

      •  Naw, it's got nothing to do with the food . . . (3+ / 0-)

        there's a camera hidden in the ceiling of the employee lounge, and it records which employees put food in those bins for other employees.


        That act of altruism, humanity and generosity tells WalMart management exactly who is making more than they really need. People who can afford to throw food around like that go on the No Raise Ever list.

        You've got to run a really tight ship if you want the billions.
