Walmart has long been a target for critics of corporate expansion, but does the company really deserve the scrutiny? Some say that the big-box retailer devastates small communities by pushing out locally-owned businesses, mistreats its workers through low pay and restrictive work hours, and forces American companies to use cheap foreign labor to produce goods at a low cost. Others point to the fact that Walmart provides countless jobs to low-skilled American workers, sells affordable goods has increasingly become a leader in sustainability, and attracts new consumers and businesses to it's neighborhoods. Has Walmart been good for America?
