As Wal-Mart continues to expand across New York State and looks to enter New York City, growing attention is being focused on the company's employment practices and local economic impact. Given what's at stake, good information is critical but there is currently a wealth of incomplete and conflicting data about the company. What Do We Know About Wal-Mart? is a comprehensive overview of the available information on Wal-Marts wages and health benefits, compliance with workplace laws, cost to the taxpayer, and impact on the local economy. The report, which provides objective information about the company, will help New Yorkers make informed policy decisions about economic development.
