Gee, Wal-Mart, that bastion of conservative values, sounds...

...almost, um....LIBERAL!!!


Wal-Mart vows changes in health

care, environment

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc., under attack from critics including labor groups and environmentalists, has vowed to cut energy usage, reduce waste and offer lower-priced health care to employees.

In a speech to employees released on Tuesday, Chief Executive Officer Lee Scott said the world's biggest retailer needed to take the lead in efforts such as switching to renewable energy sources, and even called on Congress to raise the national minimum wage from the current $5.15 an hour.

Silly Wal-Mart...don't you know your Republican Leaders are now not only into keeping the minimum wage right where it is (getting pretty close to being equal to a gallon of gas, if you think about it...) but also now hire illegal workers in order to fire union electricians...with the blessing of the company still paying Cheney a sizable stipend.

Gee, you'd think that treating workers with a fair wage, offering affordable health care, and other such things might actually be good for business!

(Dems - this might be your cue to take this up in your '06 campaigns instead of your constant "we are better but we don't know why" mantra...)
