How Wal-Mart is the good guy
They have low cost goods for the community to purchase.
They provide jobs in the town they build a store
They contribute a lot to the economy through property taxes.
How Wal-Mart is the bad guy
Those low cost goods come from China, where workers are not paid very much
The so called "Wal-Mart effect" destroys mom and pop business in towns where they build a store
They create low paying jobs which many claim contribute to the income inequality issue
