NY Times: Vast Mexico Bribery Case Hushed Up by Wal-Mart After Top-Level Struggle
Article describes “how Wal-Mart de Mexico had orchestrated a campaign of bribery to win market dominance. In its rush to build stores, he said, the company had paid bribes to obtain permits in virtually every corner of the country.”
It’s not a one time thing. The report describes this as something that has happened for years.
It’s interesting how in Chinatown, Wal-Mart shares that it’s going to do right by the community. It says that it has seniors at heart. Are we easily fooled by this multi-national corporation that has again and again been part of lawsuits; and caused the destruction of neighborhoods across the nation?
A little food for thought on a Sunday.
WORD. Just wanted to share.
This is more than Walmart moving into Chinatown. It’s about economic justice. We believe we have the right to have a say in everything that affects the quality of life for Chinatown residents. Let’s think big picture especially during this wet weather in beautiful Los Angeles.
