Walmart discriminated against women, the gender that keeps them in business. Nothing surprises me after that. I'm angrier at companies that risked our health for profit.

The walmart CEO knew about bribery in the international division? This would be the division that he supervised at the time..........ugh...yeah he knew. There is no great revelation here. The shocking thing is that no one seems to care - as log as walmart has lower prices than anyone else the general public doesn't seem to care. That says more about the general public than it does walmart.
As long as people will shop there no matter what there isn't a whole bunch of incentive for walmart to clean up their ethics. Hopefully the regulatory agencies will provide some incentive when the SEC and IRS assign fines for the company's behavior. I see some new records being set - couldn't happen to a better company.
Yes - THIS IS the way walmart does business and has for decades.
