Snitch of the Week: 10/1 - 10/7 (Wal-Mart)

Wal-Mart snitched on itself last week with its announcement that it wants to impose wage caps, decrease the amount of full-time workers and a bunch of other evil ass Wal-Mart type stuff.

All of this is to discourage workers from staying too long and to prevent long-term employees from getting raises in order to raise their stock price.

This is why no regular person should be happy when the stock market is doing well.

Anyway, I know it's not popping in the streets to discuss labor, or the death of it rather, but sooner or later people will start talking about this shit.

As if it wasn't already hard enough to make it in this country, it's going to get even harder.

I'm not talking about "MTV Cribs" make it, I'm talking about "pay your bills" make it.

And Wal-Mart is taking other steps to keep workers from staying too long: in some stores, according to workers, ''managers have suddenly barred older employees with back or leg problems from sitting on stools.''

Goddamn, Wal-Mart does not play around.
You thought them locking Mexicans in the store overnight was bad?

I bet they got some other shit in store that you couldn't even imagine.

Wal-Mart is the closest thing we have in modern America to a slave plantation.
As a, um, "money-conscious" Negro, I can see the appeal of a store like Wal-Mart, but there is a reason a DVD player costs $14.72 and half cent, or whatever their weird ass prices are.
It's not just because they have the supply chain on lock.
It's because they bust up unions and they have this modern slavery game on lock.

With its gully ass brand of self-snitching, Wal-Mart is the Snitch of the Week. But they don't need to hide it because that $402.63 flat screen TV looks so good doesn't it?


  1. I've been to Walmart once and me and my man both agreed the devil was there and I never went back.

  2. I went there once in my early college years and I will never forget watching people attack each other for $20 DVD players.

    Someone in China is smiling right now.
