When one of them dies, Wal-Mart claims on the policy. Not a cent of the payout, which sometimes runs to a $1m (£620,000) or more, goes to the family of the dead worker, often struggling with expensive funeral bills. Wal-Mart keeps the lot.

Garçon Stupide said...

Hehe... that's the feel I'm going for Eric. I always feel like there's loads of stuff I've missed out though.

Garcon, I was just on a blog of a friend of theophilus london, and she says that he is not gay. How did you find out he was gay? Im confused now.

Garçon Stupide said...
