Wal-Mart shows its true colors

After workers at a Wal-Mart in Quebec voted to unionize, making their store the first unionized Wal-Mart in North America, the company decided to close the store. The closure will leave 190 people out of work.

Wal-Mart has fiercely resisted unionization attempts at its 3,600 stores in the United States. Only one Wal-Mart in the U.S. has come close to unionizing. In 2000, 11 meat cutters at a Wal-Mart in Texas voted to join a union. The store eliminated its meat department.

If this is how Wal-Mart treats people, people need to treat Wal-Mart in kind. Don't shop there.
