Maybe it's a regional thing but I've always found Walmart employees to be helpful and courteous. Their stores are, every time I've visited, clean, well-organized and well-lit. The merchandise, while inexpensive, is the same merchandise being offered in other discount chains such as Target, Ross and KMart. In rural areas of the US, they have brought the consumers choices and savings that were never available to them in the past.
As for their employment practices, they are the largest private employer in the US by a pretty fair margin. That's a benefit to an awful lot of employees. True, they aren't the highest paying jobs in the US but they aren't the lowest either. Many people in the food services industry are paid significantly lower than Walmart employees.
My experience in the US, across the US, is not consistent with your experiences (possibly in Asia?)

There are major differences in products between Target and Walmart. Walmart has their own specs. Home Depot works the same way, though maybe a little less anal. I.E. the same brand will be inferior when bought in Home Depot (or Walmart) than in another store.

You are grasping at straws, if that's all you can find that's weak, imagine supporting Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi with all of their skeletons.
You are not in that type of skilled profession that requires a certain standard of care. You are in retail (if I remember correctly) which isnt dependent on continuing education in order to be up to date in order to practice correctly.

I think this is because you live in a semi-rural setup on the outskirts of a city.
Actually I live right in the middle of a 52 square mile city of 122,000. We are part of metro-NYC, with a total population of 20 million.

In the US it is quite common these days to have farmer markets set up within the urban areas. We can also buy organic produce in many regular supermarkets as well.

India would be wise to learn from us.

Any & every. Without the equivalent of a constitution that the group must obey, any group will eventually become a tool for good or evil at the hands of the most charismatic member of the group. And yes, this DOES certainly apply to governments too, if they do not follow their constitutions...

Unlike WTC7, L.A. High-Rise Remains Standing After Blaze
Building does not follow “law” of physics as observed on 9/11

One child is in critical condition and eight others were hospitalized after a fire erupted inside a 25-
story high-rise in West Los Angeles late Friday morning, yet the fire did not completely collapse the
building at nearly free-fall speed unlike 7 World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.
At least 214 firefighters battled the blaze that erupted in a two-bedroom unit on the 11th floor of
the Barrington Plaza, a 386-unit luxury apartment building built in 1961.
The firefighters managed to keep the fire contained near its origin before putting it out after 71
minutes, according to KTLA 5 .
A woman found the child with an older man, both unconscious, in a stairwell after the fire.
The cause of the fire is currently unknown as of this writing.
It is known, however, that the fire-damaged building did not follow the “law” of physics as
observed on Sept. 11, 2001, in which the 47-story 7 World Trade Center in New York City, also
known as Building 7, collapsed at almost free-fall speed.
Building 7 was not hit by an airplane prior to its destruction and suffered minimal fire damage, yet
still managed to completely collapse in a similar fashion as an imploded building.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) called the collapse of Building 7 “the
first known instance of fire causing the total collapse of a tall building” in history.
Yet as Barrington Plaza still remains standing hours after the fire, it is likely that Building 7 will
continue to be the only “known” instance of such an event.

Alex Jones: Conspiracy Inc.

Conspiracy theories can be big business. Here's how the multi-platform entrepreneur makes his millions

----------

"......Jones’ company broadcasts around the clock from his state-of-the art, 7,600-square-foot radio and TV studio that employs 15 people and cleared $1.5 million in revenue in 2009, according to a Texas Monthly profile. But a lot has changed since then. In 2011, he launched the Infowars Nightly News TV program to anchor his new subscriber TV network, which has expanded its lineup as traffic to his websites and general visibility has exploded, meaning his revenue is probably much bigger than it was just four years ago.....

.....So let’s go back to the scoreboard and try to add up our inexact, educated guesstimate into a grand total. On the very low end, we’d estimate a little over $1 million for Web,$215,000 for radio, and $1.5 million for paid subscribers for a not-too-shabby $2.7 million a year. On the high end, if we assume he pulls in the maximum $6 million on Web, another $450,000 on the radio (if his ad rates are at the top of their possible window), and he has 2.5 percent of his website visitors paying to subscribe, then we’re talking about more than $10 million a year. And none of this includes book sales, merch, speaking tours, promotional tie-ins, book and DVD royalties or any other revenue streams that might exist...."

You say it like its a bad thing...
Yes, non-vegetarianism is the mass murder of lifeforms.

Inflicting pain and suffering on others and killing of lesser creatures or the murder of fellow human beings are manifestations of barbarism.

It's a bad thing when you inflict pain and suffering and murder on living creatures to satiate your addiction to blood and flesh and it's a sign of a demonic nature if you follow those religious scriptures that teach human sacrifice, animal sacrifice, cannibalism, tribalism, fanaticism, incest, baby bashing, stoning to death, enslavement of people, rape, torture, war and aggression - such abnormal religious teachings cause a serious setback to the evolution of the mind-body apparatus and on a universal scale create an atmosphere of violence and savagery. No wonder the sensible adherents of such barbaric cults are mostly atheist or some have sought refuge in the enlightened teachings of Eastern Mysticism.

Eat only those foods that involve no killing of the host and which benefit the cohesion and progress of mind-matter and which promote health of the body and which usher in a era of peace in the world and which establish harmony among man and beast and so obviously in this regard the illumined choice is vegetarianism.

Vegetarianism = karma-free food, food with a lofty philosophy.
