Walmart: The High Cost of Living

Your Assignment

As we watch the movie, take some notes on each of the areas on this sheet.  Since this movie was made in 2007, Wal-Mart has made some changes in “some” areas.  Please choose one area that sparks your interest and research Walmart’s response to the charges. If they made changes, do you believe these changes have improved the situation?  If they haven’t, why not? In either case, what prompted Walmart’s behavior concerning the issue? Accounting for Walmart’s response or lack of response is a required section of this paper.  In order to make the most of your research time, you must narrow down your topic.  The paper requires 5 sources and is due June 11th.


1.     Destruction of small towns (Is that still their target area?)

2.      Treatment of “Associates”

3.     Unionization

3.   Employment of undocumented aliens

4.      Discrimination against women and minorities

5.      Regard for the environment

6.     Manufacturing in off shore sites

7.     General regard for safety

8.     Philanthropy
