  "Wal-mart is definitely good as plisaeng the customer. Even if it does cater to people looking for cheap organic or local food, it's important to consider the fact that (aside from being run by Satan himself) Wal-mart can only have such cheap prices because it places the costs on other people. The Way We Eat: Why Our Food Choices Matter written by Peter Singer and Jim Mason, has a whole chapter on Wal-mart and this very question, here's an excerpt: The positive value of a store with low prices can, however, turn negative if the low prices are achieved by passing costs onto others. In 2004, Wal-Mart's spokesperson Mona Williams told Forbes' that a full-time store employee takes home around $18,000 annually. Some think that this estimate is generous, but assuming that it is accurate, it still means that if they employee is the only income earner in a family of four, the family is living below the poverty line. (pg. 77)Most employees that work there are allowed benefits (the figure is $2,000 in public welfare for the average non-salaried Wal-Mart associate in California). So, the point is, if you're not paying the high costs of food, you're paying the taxes that support the Wal-Mart employees that Wal-Mart won't take care of in the interest of saving money."
