Occupy Walmart exposes the “1% corporation,” with its leaders who have amassed enormous wealth by exploiting the 99% who manufacture its products and buy its merchandise. This is UW English alum Al Norman’s third publication tackling Wal-Mart.

Where better to start than with Walmart—the most ubiquitous symbol of what has gone awry in corporate America today?
