Further Ammo to Combat Goliath

I love my blogging pals, I love that they are passionate about their causes and that many of those causes are my own as well.

I swung by David Grenier's this morning and his top post was regarding the WalMart Fact Checker site which gives great information about WalMart's local, national and international impact. And they have more info to share.

Important bits of info to note, like "Wal-Mart sales clerks made an average of $8.23 an hour�or $13,861 a year�in 2001. That's nearly $800 below the federal poverty line for a family of three." or "Reliance on public assistance programs in California by Wal-Mart workers costs the state's taxpayers an estimated $86 million annually."

Fight the power, with knowledge.
