A Walmart anti-union video leaked onto the internet yesterday. It's been pulled down from YouTube. UPDATE: It's back up! Walmart has had problems with pesky unions over the past forever years. Recently, Walmart suddenly closed five mega stores, which they said was because of "plumbing issues" but seemed to coincide with union activities in those stores.
The video starts with the usual Walmart signage and the obligatory image of a Latino woman restocking shelves from a carry basket (because that's how restocking shelves is usually done ... it's as easy as a person carrying a basket with three things in it who walks around a Walmart megastore and then isn't fired for being the worst working person in the history of working). A voiceover explaining how Walmart is a great job with great opportunities. People that work at Walmart are called "associates." They use the word "associates" so much during the video you can't help but start to feel like you're entering into a cult—not a coincidence.
Did you know you can become a shareholder in Walmart? Yes you can. This is because "Mr. Sam" strongly believed in "the philosophy of the partnership with associates."
And by "associates", they mean "wage slaves".
The corporate skullduggery is on full display in the video; which can be found at the seeded link.
