Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price

DIRECTED BY - Robert Greenwald

Robert Greenwald (OUTFOXED) continues his expose of evil corporate doings with this documentary, released as part of Wal-Mart Week, a nationwide activist initiative to bring the company's business practices out into the open. From their disturbing morning cheer to their minuscule benefits packages and sweatshop-labor conditions, the documentary addresses the simple question: does America benefit from the presence of this low-priced chain? Employee testimony and statistics make Greenwald's case clear and effective, and the stories of enforced, unpaid overtime and the death of mom-and-pop businesses can hardly fail to leave viewers both saddened and enraged.
