Food drive at Walmart: For Walmart employees

Customers shop at a Walmart store on August 15, 2013 in Chicago, Ill.

This final note which comes to us from the pages of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The paper reports that a Walmart in Canton, Ohio, is hosting a food drive for its own employees. The obvious conclusion is that the company doesn't pay its employees enough to eat.

A company spokesperson said the drive is evidence WalMart workers rally around each other in times of need.
