Wal Mart Opens Communist Party Office in Store

This is too weird.  Wal-Mart has a branch of the Communist Party at one of its China stores.



US retail giant Wal-Mart has set up a new branch of the Communist Party at its China headquarters after allowing unions to operate in its stores earlier this year.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc, known for it's anti-union stance in other countries, opened the new branch at its head office in the southern city of Shenzhen. The move come as Chinese authorities look to expand the presence of the communist party and state-controlled labour groups in foreign companies operating in China

One local party official told the People's Daily newspaper the branch opening was a "breakthrough" for the company. Chinese law makes it compulsory for any company or institution with 25 or more staff to set up its own trade union if staff request one.


I'm just wondering if Wal Mart could be convinced to open a branch of the Communist Party USA at its new Rosemead store.
