Help spread the truth about WalMart. This is a brilliant grassroots campaign idea from the Service Employee's union and their president, Andy Stern. Please click here. Sign up for a grassroots, truth about WalMart campaign.

Last month Wal-Mart, the largest company in the world, launched a million-dollar advertising campaign attempting to silence critics who point out facts like that in 2001 the average Wal-Mart clerk made just $8.23 an hour - below the federal poverty line for a family of three.

It's time to start spreading the real facts: Wal-Mart is big, but they can't outrun the truth.
