Wal-Mart Canada

This abstract presents a foreshadow for what would be the foundation for a full ev*****luative report on the retail giant Wal-Mart and the effects recent labor disputes have had ***** ***** likes of Canadian labor legislation, local labor dispute resolutions and the intervention on the part of unions to recruit ***** employees. There is no *****tter presentation than one that presents ***** varying opinions in philosophy between unions and employers.

At a time ***** globalization and technological advances have helped Wal-Mart to exp***** and turn consistent profits, the retailer has been outwardly criticized for offering wages ***** working conditions that are far *****o low.
