Owe your soul to the Company Store... Wal Mart
Huff Po Business reports:
NPR reported the story & a Wal Mart spokesperson had this to say:
UPDATE: Walmart says its description of its health care ambitions in the request for information sent to vendors that was obtained by NPR was "overwritten and incorrect," Reuters reports."We are not building a national, integrated, low-cost primary care health care platform," John Agwunobi, senior vice president & president of Walmart U.S. health & wellness said in a statement, according to Reuters
The correction is probably
We ARE building a national, integrated, cruise the gravy, for profit, primary care health care platform,
We can see where this is going-- the part time employee will be sent to the for profit medical center, housed in the store, maybe even put the tab on a future paycheck?
