Wal-Mart and children of Bangladesh
I know Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million associates all over the world with a business worth of almost 300 billion dollars. Now, please close down all the Wal-Mart stores where typically people flock to get merchandise at a reduced rate and transfer all the assets to the poor children and their attorneys.... Suddenly, children are at front page, when their community, society, government and their mothers deny and undermine children’s rights every day, suddenly a law suit will change their destiny forever. Welcome to globalization.
I read an interesting article that’s called “Wal-Mart is rich, let’s suit them!” I don’t know whether it’s true or not, but they say, “some parts of the United States are as poor as the Third World”. But who can show the real picture down to the earth right now in Dhaka, Bangladesh. May be a nine year old child can tell you the real story that doesn’t hit the headline.
