The Wal-Mart Watch Blog10 Comments | Aug 05, 2009
Just a few day’s after Wal-Mart filed an injunction against a union in Canada for using blue ovals on their website, Wal-Mart makes a carbon copy of America’s favorite cookies and tries to pass them off as their own.
Wal-Mart has finally reached a new low, built a basement under it, and proceeded to dig toward China.
When it comes to assessing whether an organization is authentic, whether it is trying to grow into something more or better, it is important to look at the organization’s actions in that area.
We should be looking at Wal-Mart’s sustainability efforts and encourage them when these efforts seem to demonstrate that Wal-Mart is keeping its promises.
But also, we should look at the organization’s behavior around the fringes, because it is this behavior that clues us in to whether the change effort is real, or whether the change effort is fake.
We’re sure Wal-Mart will try to spin this as some sort of lesson in capitalism for the aspiring young leaders of tomorrow.
Remember kids, this isn’t recess, it’s a recession.
