Critical Column Causes Wal-Mart to Drop Newspaper

A reporter for the Pensalcola News Journal was critical of Wal-Mart’s practices:

Mark then described how Friedman’s book pointed out that more than 10,000 children of Wal-Mart employees are in a Georgia health-care program, which costs the state’s taxpayers nearly $10 million a year. Mark also pointed out that a New York Times report found that 31 percent of the patients at a North Carolina hospital were Wal-Mart employees on Medicaid.

Wal-Mart has dropped the paper from their stores.
