Why Do People Hate On Walmart?
Why do people hate Walmart as opposed to any other major retail chain? I constantly hear people talk about how Walmart pays 'low wages', but it pays just as good or better than many other retail chains for a poverty job and as for the fact that most of the goods it sells are outsourced from China, that is also true about nearly every other retail store (Target, Home Depot, Lowes etc). So what is with the Walmart obsession?

Walmart is a good store in general. Before I made my money, I moved from Britain to the States. I invested all the money I had into an Internet start-up and I was a poor. So I used to shop at Walmart because I liked the prices, the more money I saved on shopping went back into my business ventures and the ability to get most everything I need there at one stop saved me valuable working time. Although there were some things I would not buy there due to being particular about the quality of some products... Like meat and poultry, I won't eat any factory farmed meat and I don't trust the labels when they say it's not factory farmed but most everything else I needed I got from Walmart!

I know big corporations like Walmart put a slight hurting on smaller business... But let's face it, that is what we call the evolution of businesses and corporations. If the smaller mom and pop places can compete with the low prices then most people may stick to shopping in their hometown. I am not totally heartless, I vary really go grocery shopping anymore because I dine out for breakfast/lunch/dinner most every days and just keep the bare minimum I need in my home but I when I do go for groceries I go to local stores now because I don't really buy that much.

For those Idiots out there on a Walmart boycott, it's just silly. Look at how full the parking lot is at Walmart stores at any given time, they are busy because of the convenience and low prices. Why pay more for the same product and waste time having to shop at two or three stores when you can just go to one store and get all the shopping done at once.

Re: Why Do People Hate On Walmart?
they can boycott it all they want as most know these boycotters are a bunch of hypocrits, swilling starbuk$ and carrying on about bs etc.
they have NO PROBLEMS with their chicom slaves making their cell phones,laptops etc.
they love to hold up i_key_uuuh/coscO etc as the epitome of social restructuring.

walmart over here NEVER has those people dressed like gawd knows what,massively overweight 1s,fights etc.

store is clean,well stocked and staffed and pleasant.
always shoppers BUYING.
staff seems to be either retirees adding to their social insecurity income or ENTRY LEVEL 1st time_ers getting experience.
no slaves.

prices are OK and there is no fear of bumping into the wrong person etc.

in this zipcode we also have HEB and dollar general.
and of course the internet to search for a needed DEAL as time permits.
no one is either forced to shop there or WORK THERE-

it's a wonder ANY foreign owned and run dollar store doesn't make their braindead heads EXPLODE
but then again...
just points right back to the fact that they're ALL a bunch of hypocrites as a bs artist has the skill to pull this crap off and keep it running.
they don't.

I'd like to know.
Maybe because they force people into slave labour while making more money for themselves than 20% of all americans put together?
People should just rob the stores and be done with it.

Besides them carrying a lot of quality brandname stuff, they also equally carry a lot of Dollarstore shit.

So, even if let's say, you see a blockbuster deal on 10 dollar umbrellas, your probally over spending and buying an actual dollar umbrella that is very poor quality, since it was on sale for 10, and regular was 29.99, you think your buying a decent umbrella.

This is whT I hate about Walmart, they don't care if they carry dollar store merchandise and try to knock it off for a decent piece by asking a fair price....

I don't go there to browse and buy compulsively for that reason. I only go there to buy a specific item because all Walmart is, is an oversized dollarstore with regular merchandise too, so its really fucking confusing and a shitty deal, because they have no pride in thier product lineups.. 90% crap from the dollar store marked up 900%

They choose to work there though... Not like they couldn't find another retail job. There are tons out there at the right time.

They supply crappy manufactured products at a low price. That's their strong point, is the low prices. People are just too dumb to realize half of the stuff at Walmart will break the first time you use it.

Personally I like to support my local businesses who supply superior products any ways.

Living in rural america, I have seen walmart, time and again, open in a small town offering rock-bottom prices that the local mom and pops cant compete with. Once mom and pop are done, prices at walmart rise significantly.

Now the folks in town dont have mom and pop to work for and they're stuck.

It's legal, it's free enterprise, it's capitalism, and it's as unethical as it can be.

Exactly, if you work in a poverty job you cant expect to be treated with respect by your peers, that's not how the world works.

Nobody is forced to work at Walmart, if they don't like working there because of the way the business is run and how they treat associates, then leave! Everybody who works at Walmart chooses to work there...

Yeah they choose to work there instead of not having a job or fighting for what little they could live on if they could get unemployment. There's about 50 people fighting for any one job opening in my town. Everyone I know works at walmart, tries to find scrap metal to sell or is trying to get some sort of state benefits. I'm sure that where you are, op, there are probably more jobs, but in small towns where walmart's concerned...it's a gold mine for giving people shit hours shit pay and if they slip up once it's big brother and they're cancelled. i don't see much choice in the matter at least where small towns are concerned...and don't think it won't hit bigger cities soon enough. if you shop there, you will waste money, walmart is perfect for our up and coming youth encouraging laziness. oh excuse me "convenience".

You are reading into the situation too much to pull this diatribe out of your mouth. Prices rise everyday, it's called inflation. Why would Walmart drive up the prices of their products and force customers who have little money to spend on groceries to buy less items? It does not make any sense! I don't mind paying companies like Walmart more for products to support a more ethical business model but that would hit our poor citizens the hardest and I doubt Walmart are going to ostracize their biggest customer base after running a few mom and pop stores out of business.
