Labor Day …

finger lickin' good

Just in time for Labor Day, I’ll pass along this little nugget that I happened to read yesterday. Walmart is now the largest private sector employer in the United States. McDonald’s is the second largest. Are you lovin’ it?

While you’re digesting those whoppers, here is another interesting story you may want to think about.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the universe, there is this. There are lots of terrific charitable organizations that are helping. If you want to forego your Big Mac and do something to help as well, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins San Frontières (MSF) is among the best.

One thought on “Labor Day …

  1. If that’s the case, then why is it that every time I go into the local Walmart, there are two registers open and my 45 minute wait is spent staring at the thirty unoccupied lanes? Oh yeah, greed.

    I was a little disappointed when I first saw a Walmart. My town had a Delchamps, Winn Dixie, Piggly Wiggly, then the conglomerate moved in, forced them all out of business… and most professionately- they laid off half the employees they hired.

    What the hell is McDonald’s?
