This chapter explores how Wal-Mart succeeded in the retail industry by taking an anti-unionist stand. It explains that the retail store’s policy of paying its employees the lowest amount possible and its lack of a proper health care package could be two of the reasons behind its success. It contends that its large employee turnover rate of 40 percent shows its disregard of the needs of its employees.
