Gotta Love Walmart: Serving Food Deserts, Hiring Women in Brazil and Offering Free Healthcare
A Sam’s Club in São Bernardo do Campo, in greater Sao Paulo, will be the first built using these women construction workers - around 50 female bricklayers will be hired for the project. By the end of the year, a total of 200 women will be employed by Walmart in cities that are building new stores and have professional training courses promoted by city halls and SPM."
3. "With back-to-school time just around the corner and kids still taking advantage of long days off from school, Sam’s Club is helping families by offering free children’s health and ID screenings across the country on Saturday, July 9, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Every Sam’s Club that has a pharmacy participated in the free screenings, which includes more than 500 locations in the U.S."
MP: For its ongoing humanitarian efforts and community service to enrich and empower low-income people around the world by: a) bringing fresh groceries to America's food deserts, b) empowering working women in Brazil, and c) providing free health care screenings to America's youth, I hereby nominate Walmart for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize. It has done more to lift people out of poverty than many of the past Peace Prize recipients like Mother Theresa, Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, Barack Hussein Obama, and the United Nations, combined.
