While the Middle East and Korea have been discussed here, let me tell you why this thread has me more excited than those. First, I posted it. Second, I interviewed with Wal Mart, went to Bentonville, Arkansas, had a job offer from them, and I firmly believe Wal-Mart is a good thing for America.
It’s also closer to home than those other places. Most Americans in the range of North Korea’s Taepdong-2 don’t even care about it.
As for the Middle East, I think a lot of folks are interested in it, particularly the ones who are in Iraq and Afghanistan or have served there: Iraq is much discussed here. If you’re referring to the Israel-Palestine situation, a hot debate is going on as we speak. 30 posts is a lot for O-Nerd.
Let me say the main reason I didn’t go to work for Wal-Mart was the level of commitment it requires as far as working weekends and being willing to move every year or two for the good of the organization. It was too much like the Army, which I was getting out of.
Finally, this debate is more about American society, the corporate world, and our health care problems. Pretty important stuff to most people.
Look, we all know that Wal-Mart moves to a town, destroys it’s competition and becomes a monopolistic like company. Besides, people should be a little more interested in world news not just local news. It’s like the News paper these days, they put a scandal of a movie star in the front of a page. I’m not saying there’s something wrong with your article. I’m just saying people should be more concern with what’s going on in the world today. How’s Iraq doing, how’s the American soldier’s doing, how are those poor children in those third world countries doing.
