The individual defending the WalMart "brand" doesn't shop there, so their complaint is based on their own theory of a 'witch hunt". Well, okey doke.
They want to be involved in a discussion and cares not a whit about the issue. So there is a yes and a no about what "made in America" means. If all the parts are made outside the US but assembled in the US, it cannot be labeled Made in America - but can be labeled "assembled in America".
It really isn't all that hard to learn what products are and are not made in the US.
I am informed consumer, I want to know where "stuff I buy" actually comes from and in the abstract what the Corporation that produces products that are sold in a variety of stores. As many here,are well-informed about Corporations and their subsidiaries. Would I spend at stores that offer their employees decent salaries and benefits - absolutely. Why, because when supporting that Store / Coporation are actually reducing the demand on Social-Safety Net.
That same reasoning applies to buying individual products. Why reward a Corporate Subsidiary that under their Brand name underpays their employees and place additional pressure on the social safety net.
I have spoken before about my decision to not shop at WalMart, nor to buy other products because of the Corporate label on numerous occasions. I am fortunate enough to not have to be concerned about the extra nickel / item, but many aren't. Voicing public opposition may not change Corporate policies, but doing zero and saying nothing guarantees that they won't.
