135.8 - Everything You Need to Know: about Wal-mart's pay rates

Everything You Need to Know: about Wal-mart's pay rates

Finally for today, another episode of our very occasional feature, Everything You Need to Know, wherein yes, everything you need to know about something can be summed up in no more than a couple of sentences and often less.

In this case, the topic is Wal-mart and the increasing activism among its underpaid and overworked employees. I am going to talk about that at considerably more length in the near future, but for the moment, courtesy of the Huffington Post, comes Everything You Need to Know about how Wal-mart pays its employees in one headline, quoting:

"Walmart Store Holding Thanksgiving Food Drive For Its Own Workers"

And a Happy Bird Day to you, too.

By the way, next week I'm going to be spending some time telling you the real story, the historically accurate story, of the so-called first Thanksgiving - which wasn't the first and it wasn't a thanksgiving. But it's still a cool story and it may surprise you how little we factually know about that event.
