    Wal-Mart really is a "company store" -- they even offer an alternative, now, to banks and credit unions.

    The legalization of slavery through the back doors our corporate overlords have enjoyed installing since 1980 continues unabated, but now there's a major American financial company (American Express) backing up the "race to the bottom" leader in treating workers rottenly, creating the sorriest possible work environment, denying access to benefits and dominating even the employee's off-hours ("constant availability" which means that even though you can only work 35 hours a week you have to be able to say "yes" to a call in at any time).

    We need bigger reforms than anybody imagines, I fear.
