When NAFTA was pushed through in the mid-ninties, I was working for Gap. Our managers held a special meeting to demand we support NAFTA legislation.
I was flabbergasted that I was being directed not only how to think but how to vote by an employer. The message was crystal clear — if I wanted to keep my job I had to vote the way the company instructed.
Today Infowars received an anonymous tip that Wal-Mart employees have been met with a similar ultimatum. During a morning store meeting in Arizona, employees of the mega-giant were told not to post anything negative about the company’s new partnership with DHS on Facebook or any other site.
The recent partnership is part of the ‘If you see something, say something’ program that will turn Wal-Mart shoppers into a paranoid snitch army.
Corporations think they have ultimate control over everything. You and I are merely pawns to be used as they wish on a corporate/government chessboard. Free speech has been eroded and we are all sitting around arguing semantics.
