Stephen Colbert Chides Walmart For Employee Food Drive

Nov 20, 2013

Earlier this week, news broke that at least one Walmart store was holding a Thanksgiving food drive -- for its own employees. Many saw this as evidence that the world's largest employer would rather rely on charity than pay a reasonable living wage.

On last night's "Colbert Report," Stephen Colbert sarcastically praised the corporate giant for sticking to its guns in offering low wages to maximize profits, although not for the food drive itself.

"Some critics out there say Walmart isn't doing enough, but they're wrong, because Walmart isn't doing anything," he said. "These bins are for Walmart employees to donate to other employees. And where can Walmart's low wage workers find cheap food to donate? Walmart."
