Few major corporations have fought harder against raising minimum wages than Walmart. Perhaps it’s time for the Walton family, the richestand perhaps the greediest — family in the world, to take a hard, long look in the mirror.

Reports Think Progress:

A Walmart in northeast Ohio is holding a holiday canned food drive — for its own underpaid employees. “Please Donate Food Items Here, so Associates in Need Can Enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner,” a sign reads in the employee lounge of a Canton-area Walmart.

Happy Holidays, everyone!
