I have always tried to buy "Made in America" products so when I bought my
first brand new car I only looked at Chevrolet and Ford cars. I decided to
buy a Ford Granada over a Chevrolet Monte Carlo and have never regretted my
decision. I won't buy a Gerrman, Swedish, Italian, Japanese or Chinese made
car because I support the American workers who are still lucky enough to be
working in factories all across America. I have never been inside a Wal
Mart store but I understand most, if not all, of their merchandise is made
in China and a lot of their employees are illegal immigrant Mexicans.
That is probably true but in most other variety stores most of the
made in China also.
I buy certain things from WalMart. One of the most common purchases there
motor oil. What Walmart sells is the same as what everyone else sells. (I'm
talking about the house brand of motor oil) I really cannot get all worked
about local businesses losing me as a customer to Wal Mart because all of
other auto-parts stores and gas stations in the local area that sell motor
oil are also
Most of their employees in this location aren't Hispanic.
Who would want to do that kind of work, for that kind of money, when one can
find work in an air conditioned Wal-Mart distribution center for $15 an
When one drives down I-81, past the Wal-Mart distribution center in
Schuylkill County north of Harrisburg, they will see a big sign that says
"Workers wanted $14.50 an hour to start, plus benefits. Apply within, NO
experience needed will train." Why is it they can not find workers in an
economically depressed area? ;)
Having a help wanted sign does not necessarily indicate a position
available. It could be a way to collect a list of applications and a
very public way to remind employee's that there *is* such a list and
that there are people waiting to take their jobs.
