WAL-MART'S TOP 10 OF THE WORST

The "Multinational Monitor," which tracks corporate activity, has named Wal-Mart one of the 10 worst corporations in 2004. It cites a class-action lawsuit on behalf of 1.6 million women workers alleging rampant employment discrimination and the retailer's shifting of workers' health care and other costs to taxpayers. Last year, a report by the minority staff of the House Education and Workforce Committee found one 200-person Wal-Mart store may cost taxpayers nearly $421,000 annually in public services used by its workers. A recent study in Tennessee found more than a quarter of Wal-Mart's workforce there was enrolled TennCare, the state's Medicaid program for low-income workers.
