The Dalles Why Wal-Mart?
To the editor:
I still can’t figure out why we need another Wal-Mart in this area. We already have one in Hood River.
This rapacious family of billionaires owns more wealth than 40 percent of the American people.
Why can’t we bring a decent business like CostCo, or better yet, a co-op owned by local people?
We don’t need Wal-Mart’s penny ante, part-time jobs that no one can live on, nor do we need their chintzy, condescending attitude toward employees.
Surely we can do better.
