Something Wal-Mart This Way Comes:
Sweatshop USA: The American Sweatshop in Historical and Global Perspective (book)

I would just like to say that I really appreciate this site and all the information that can be found! I live in a small town in northern Minnesota and have recently found out that Wal-Mart will be coming to my town. My dad is also a local business owner so this addition could have major effects on his business and my family. The local businesses managed to put together enough money to hire an economist and an array of lawyers to fight on their behalf, but Wal-Mart has already gained approval from our mayor, who is a senile idiot who will do anything for a quick buck. I'm worried about the future of our town after Wal-mart comes. We have always been thought of as a quaint resort town where people can escape from the stress of the larger cities, but I know Wal-Mart will change all of that. Thanks for all the information, and I plan on sending this web address to everyone at City Hall and anyone else who needs to open their eyes.
