Is Wal-Mart good for America/ Should it come to NYC?

Why Wal-Mart will be a good for NYC is because it’s a way to help the society and the economy. It makes the economy to go up by selling different kinds of products in lower prices. Also because when some company wants Wal-Mart to sell them things in higher prices, they does not sell those things, so this mean that they want to help the economy to grow up.  A way that Wal-Mart is affect the society of NYC is because it destroy all the small business.

5 examples from the worksheet For High Performing level work, use at least five facts from the articles in the book (33 - 36)

 

Wal-Mart chief executive, H. Lee Scott Jr. said “I don’t even care if we are in New York because it is so expensive that it don’t worth the effort. I am is unconvinced because is hard to make money in NY.” So, if it is so hard to make money stay where you at. They shouldn’t come to a city that is fine and destroy their companies.

Wal-Mart has 4,000 store in the united states, they have tried to open stores in Queens and Staten Island, but fell because of union, community and political opposition. As you can see New York doesn’t want Wal-Mart, the people don’t want it and that’s because it is not good for the city.


Wal-Mart’s prices are 10 to 30 percent lower than their competitors, but it wages and health benefit leave workers below poverty line and pressure others to reduce pays and benefits. Since Wal-Mart sell almost all its products in a low prices they don’t pay a high wage to workers they don’t give them a good health insurance, would you like to work for Wal-Mart?


According to Mr.Scott NY have people who are better than and that’s why they don’t want it in NY.


In New York  poor neighborhoods are more likely accepting Wal-Mart in their community because of their lower income they need low prices and more jobs. It is true this stores offers a lot of low prices, but what happens with other stores and its workers.


Executives feel that the recession was a great time to enter NY. But Stuart Appelbaum said “The reality remains the same, Wal-Mart should not try to take advantage of the economic situation.”
