Wal-Mart has made progress against those who contend that it pays poor wages and benefits to its workforce. This news is playing with PR fire. Workers complain now that they don't have enough time on the job to make a living and moving to more part-time work isn't going to help. It looks like a set-up for unions to make inroads. On the other hand, if Wal-Mart isn't doing what news reports say, the company needs to explain itself better.
