Finally: Walmart is making a concerted effort to address some of the major social and economic criticisms the company has faced for decades.

Except this is not about making long overdue commitments - it's The Real Walmart campaign. Featuring a PR firewall of Q&A and supportive quotes from "real customers". Little else could sum up the reality of rampant inequality and declining mobility in the US that Walmart represents better than this customer quote:

"On two deployments in Iraq I served with a lot of guys who didn't know if they had a job waiting for them. Walmart held my job for me."
