    Latest Wal-Mart Update

    For all the lies from the socialist unions about Wal-Mart I guess more than 11,000 people want to be abused, underpaid, have bad health care benefits, and be exploited. Oh, please don't take my word for it - read it your self in todays San Francisco Chronicle article - an excerpt:
    For all the criticism that Wal-Mart receives for its low wages and minimal health benefits, the retail giant says more than 11,000 people in the Bay Area are clamoring to get a job at its new Oakland store.

    The country's largest employer plans to welcome customers into its 148, 000-square-foot store on Edgewater Drive next Wednesday, and it says it already has filled 350 of its 400 openings.

    Wal-Mart has accepted more than 11,000 applications from Bay Area job seekers, marking the largest volume of interest it has received at any of its Northern California stores, said Wal-Mart spokeswoman Cynthia Lin.
