Wal-Mart Can't Handle The Truth

"By all accounts, Jim Bill Lynn bled Wal-Mart blue." That's how Harold Meyerson's starts off an American Prospect article about Lynn, who really believed Wal-Mart's rhetoric about improving working conditions in the factories of its foreign contractors, who really believed that Wal-Mart's "open door" policy made union's unnecessary.

Turns out Wal-Mart doesn't really care about foreign workers, or hearing the truth. Jim Bill Lynn no longer works for Wal-Mart and has filed a whilstle-blower complaint against the company.

Lynn's story is also featured in Robert Greenwald's new film, Wal-Mart: The High Price of Low Cost, which is being released this month.
