wal-mart, bankrupt and murderous?

In "Wal-Mart's P.R. war", Liza Featherstone lays out a laundry list of alleged sins and then says:
The largest and most profitable retailer in the world -- and in the United States, with 1.3 million workers, the largest private employer -- is becoming nearly as infamous as Enron or the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory.
Infamous in the minds of left-wingers, no doubt, but such infamy tells us nothing about Wal-Mart and much about the internal mental processes of those on the left. To them, a successful, profitable company is comparable to a sweatshop that locks in its employees and allows them to burn to death.

At least the article admits that the store has low prices that are beneficial to consumers:
When you're struggling to make ends meet, a $2.50 bra and a $30 microwave look pretty good.
I'm not an expert on Wal-Mart, but there is an excellent, fair and balanced blog dedicated to all things WM, Always Low Prices, run by Kevin Brancato. Be sure and check it out.
