WalMart doesn't like to pay its employees a living wage but it's happy to do a little begging on their behalf. So the WalMart on Altantic Boulevard in Canton, Ohio set out bins in the store so that better off employees could toss a little something in for their less well off colleagues.
Kory Lundberg, a Walmart spokesman, said the food drive is proof that employees care about each other.
"It is for associates who have had some hardships come up," he said. "Maybe their spouse lost a job.
"This is part of the company's culture to rally around associates and take care of them when they face extreme hardships," he said.
Wait a second. WalMart isn't taking "care of" anyone. It's not WalMart goods going in those bins. It's stuff provided by other low-wage earning workers.
