I know I have slammed WalMart in the past but no more I tell you! It’s the new Donviti! Kindler, Gentler and more appreciative of a company trying to get back $417k in medical costs in order to get it make another $11bil in profit this year!
This is sort I highlighted before but it has crept back into the news and now with a twist….
Two years after the accident, Shank and her husband, Jim, were awarded about $1 million in a lawsuit against the trucking company involved in the crash. After legal fees were paid, $417,000 was placed in a trust to pay for Debbie Shank’s long-term care.
In short, Walmart sued for $470k!!!! YES, $63k ABOVE what Debbie was awarded. Pretty sweet huh?
Oh, the twist you ask?
Debbie Shank breaks down in tears every time she’s told that her 18-year-old son, Jeremy, was killed in Iraq.
So remember to shop Walmart this weekend. That $.25 you save on those forks you buy instead of from another place are going to a Morally Bankrupt company. Milton Friedman would be so fucking proud of them.
