retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Sometimes, it takes a bit of digging to find an Eye-Opener.

And sometimes, they just jump right up and announce themselves.

Such was the case last night, while I was sitting in a hotel room in Fort Wayne, Indiana, working on MNB, and watching “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”

The second segment of the program was a story about the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) protesting against Walmart’s exploitation of non-union workers in Nevada. I’m not going to tell you any more than that, except to say that the video is absolutely worth watching. It is as good in its way as any piece of investigative journalism, and I suspect it may catch you at least a little bit by surprise - it shows how the unexpected story can emanate from the unexpected source.

The link is here.

That’s my Tuesday Eye-Opener.
