The Graduate Students Association Presents: WAL-MART: THE HIGH COST OF LOW PRICE

from katherine westaway:

Highly relevant to our own UM community, WAL-MART: THE HIGH COST OF LOW PRICE takes on questions of living wage, institutionalized sexism, and corporate greed. This feature length documentary uncovers a retail giant's assault on families and American values. The film dives into the deeply personal stories and everyday lives of families and communities struggling to fight a goliath. A working mother is forced to turn to public assistance to provide healthcare for her two small children. A Missouri family loses its business after Wal-Mart is given over $2 million to open its doors down the road. A mayor struggles to equip his first responders after Wal-Mart pulls out and relocates just outside the city limits. A community in California unites, takes on the giant, and wins!
