Should be interesting:
WAL-MART: THE HIGH COST OF LOW PRICE is a feature length documentary that uncovers a retail giant's assault on families and American values.We have wanted to see the Palace too!
The film dives into the deeply personal stories and everyday lives of families and communities struggling to fight a goliath. A working mother is forced to turn to public assistance to provide healthcare for her two small children. A Missouri family loses its business after Wal-Mart is given over $2 million to open its doors down the road. A mayor struggles to equip his first responders after Wal-Mart pulls out and relocates just outside the city limits. A community in California unites, takes on the giant, and wins!
I am going to vomit. Then I am never ever going to shop at WalMart again. If you read this blog, you owe it to yourself to hunt down a screening of this movie, or host a screening yourself. You will never shop at WalMart again. I mean it.
I will have to gather my thoughts before I post more on this issue. My wife and a good friend of mine went with me, I was the only one that had any idea what we were walking into. My friend was happy that I took her to it, but pissed because she was so fired up about it.
