walmart holds a food drive for its own underpaid employees

With Thanksgiving just around the corner and Christmas soon after, it's the time of year to give to others who are less fortunate than yourself.

So Wal-Mart decided to get into the spirit by holding a food drive, asking customers who come in to donate food for those who might not be able to afford a hearty holiday feast!

But the food wasn't going to a homeless shelter or a local charity. Everything was actually going toward their own employees!

Wal-Mart spokesperson Kory Lundberg said he thought the move was definitely a positive thing:

The largest U.S. private employer is officially extending healthcare benefits to workers’ same-sex partners, and we could not be more thrilled about it!

Filed under: CanadialandSad SadBusiness BlitzDogAnimal Cruelty

This is totes reDICKulous!! Not cool, Walmart, not cool.

Carla Cheney was fired from a Walmart in Kemptville, Ontario, just south of Ottawa.

She was terminated after confronting a customer over their dog, which they left in a truck on a hot day.

The stupidest part was she wasn't even in her uniform or even on the clock when she confronted the customer.

During the confrontation with the customer, he said he'd never be shopping at Walmart again, and Carla said she'd be calling the police if she saw him do it again.

Afterwards, Carla was called into her manager's office and fired for "being rude" to the customer.

Rude?? She was trying to save a doggy's life!!

Check out the video (above) to hear what happened in Carla's own words.

DVDs And Blu-Rays Disappearing Into The Clouds?!

DVDs And Blu-Rays Disappearing Into The Cloud

Are you tired of having to sort through a library of DVDS and Blu-Rays that takes up more space than your entire iTunes library?

Have you thought about turning your entire collection digital?

Well, that's what Best Buy and Wal-Mart are trying to make happen- and right from the comfort of your own home!

Sure, some Wal-Marts have already begun to offer digital conversion in-store, but who wants to leave the house?

Why do they think we watch streaming in the first place? It means never having to put on pants!

Once you sign up, the stores' services will allow you to upload your films into your own digital cloud for a small fee- Best Buy is currently planning $2 for SD and $5 for HD.

That could get pricey depending on the size of your collection, but it might be worth it to be ahead of the game when your grandkids ask you, what's a DVD player?

Facebook is doing what it can to stay ahead of Google Plus, so the social networking giant has decided to team up with Wal-Mart on a new business idea.

The partnership will create custom Facebook pages for Wal-Mart’s more than 3,500 stores.

The concept behind it all is to make shopping at one’s local Wal-Mart more personal by allowing customers to interact with their local store online as well as receive coupons, sales details, and special offers online.
