    "Walmart is the poster child for the worst in corporate behaviour"

    Today's Guardian takes a look at a new documentary, titled "Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price":

    Telling the personal stories of employees and small businesses caught in the shadow of the US retail behemoth, Greenwald's documentary accuses Wal-Mart of paying breadline wages without adequate health cover for its staff and argues that it destroys the fabric of small towns by killing off rival businesses with discount prices. The action briefly moves to Britain, where Asda was bought by Wal-Mart in 1999. The film features an east London fruit stallholder fighting Asda's plans to demolish the historic Queen's Market and redevelop the site in Upton Park.
