Walmart the giant chain seems to be in its last financial throes(!?) when it is revealed that it is seeking donations for its employees Thanksgiving Dinner! The Web page and Facebook page of the group feature a photo of two storage containers underneath a sign that says, "Please donate food items here so Associates in Need can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner." The Web page also says, "Walmart is asking us to donate food to our coworkers. Why can't Walmart pay us enough so we can feed our families?" The Web page quotes someone named Jamaad Reed of Cincinnati, identified as a Walmart Associate, saying "If I made $25,000/yr, I wouldn't have to rely on food stamps." The donation containers are displayed at a Walmart in Canton, Ohio, some sitting on tables in an employees-only area, others underneath tables, according to theCleveland Plain Dealer.
