Who’s bigger than the NHS?

September 24th, 2010 Posted in Economics by

Remember that old chestnut that “The only organisations bigger than the NHS are the Chinese People’s Liberation Armyand the Indian Railways”?

Well, according to the NHS, there’s a new sherrif in town, courtesy of Wal-Mart, the first private sector employer to break into the top three largest employers in the world.

Congratulations to Wal Mart for creating nearly 2m jobs!

    Thanks to subsidies, exploitation and dehumanisation :(

    Wal*Mart are not a creation of anything close to a free market, they thrive thanks to transport subsidies, unfree trade agreements and the ability to exploit people made desperate by capitalism (in the original sense – not the newspeak sense)

    They may not be the most evil company around, but they are not on the side of liberty for all.

    Ah! But you don’t understand. We, in the Labour Government, were here to provide jobs to the lower strata, as these are the one’s likely to cause us trouble.

    We are not concerned with people with get-up and go, other than we wish they would get-up and go (emigrate) and leave us to our cosy environment. Many of them are doing this which we view with delight. They probably voted Tory anyway.

    The Government.

    PS: I agree with Triatan, Walmart have been guilty of despicable acts in the US, driving small business to the wall. I have to admit, That awful man, Vince Cable did touch on the truth a little in his speech, when one looks at Walmart’s history.
