Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price takes the viewer on a deeply personal journey into the everyday lives of families struggling against the unrelenting squeeze on their communities from the world's largest corporation. From a family business owner in the Midwest to a preacher in California, from workers in Florida to a poet in Mexico, dozens of film crews on three continents bring the intensely personal stories of an assault on families and American values.

Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price is the new film from Robert Greenwald, the award-winning producer of over 60 films, and the director of the 2004 hit documentaries, Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism, and Uncovered: The War on Iraq. With Outfoxed, Greenwald took on the most powerful media company in the world; now with Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price he takes on the most powerful company in the world, period.

Editor's Note
Robert Greenwald (OUTFOXED) continues his expose of evil corporate doings with this documentary, released as part of Wal-Mart Week, a nationwide activist initiative to bring the company's business practices out into the open. From their disturbing morning cheer to their minuscule benefits packages and sweatshop-labor conditions, the documentary addresses the simple question: does America benefit from the presence of this low-priced chain? Employee testimony and statistics make Greenwald's case clear and effective, and the stories of enforced, unpaid overtime and the death of mom-and-pop businesses can hardly fail to leave viewers both saddened and enraged.
