I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review From the publisher as I do not regurgitate the contents or story of books in reviews I let them do itIn 2012 journalist Hugo Meunier went undercover as a Walmart employee for three months in St Leonard uebec just north of MontrealIn great detail Meunier charts the daily life of an impoverished Walmart worker referring to his shifts at the box store giant as somewhere between the army and Walt Disney Each shift began with a daily chant before bowing to customer demands and the constant pressure to sell Meanwhile Meunier and his fellow workers could not afford to shop anywhere else but Walmart further indenturing them to the multi billion dollar corporationBeyond his time on the shop floor Meunier documents the extraordinary efforts that Walmart exerts to block unionization campaigns including their 2005 decision to close their outlet in Jonuiere C where the United Food and Commercial Workers union had successfully gained certification rights A decade later he charts the Supreme Court of Canada ruling that exposed the dubious legal ground on which Walmart stood in invoking closure and throwing workers out on the streetIn Walmart Diary of an Associate Meunier reveals the truths behind Walmart s low prices it will make you think twice before shopping thereThis was a very uick read as I learned NOTHING new I still hate Walmart as they treat their staff just as badly as their customers Nothing is ever in stock Sure some customers are jerks who may deserve how they are being treated But it s no different from any employer who preys on minimum wage workers Tim Horton s Mc Donalds etc If you thought that life was a dream at the Big Dubya then you might want to read this book People like me who read the newspaper will earn nothing new I said that I would be honest
