Is Walmart Good For America? Directed/ Written by Hendrick Smith & Rick Young The argument in Is Wal-mart Good for America is over what is clearly addressed in the title; whether this corporation that millions of United States citizens shop at is truly good for our country.

The salaries the workers receive are not even enough to pay for living expenses which is why they live on the worksite in cramped rooms with subpar food choices. Wal-mart is also always using their power in order to put companies in extremely sticky situations shown by the effect they had on Rubbermaid; a company that makes things such as bowls, garbage cans, and storage bins. They were in business with Wal-mart for an extended period of
