Beyond the Classroom presents "Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price"

In the midst of today's global economic crisis, how do we understand the role of the world's largest and most successful corporation? What does Wal-Mart mean for the local businesses and workers on Main Street? Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price examines the economic and social impact of Wal-Mart for workers and their communities. The film takes you behind the advertising glitz and into the real lives of workers and their families, business owners and their communities, in an extraordinary journey that will challenge the way you think, feel, and shop. This investigative film raises vital questions for debate about the future of economic prosperity in communities in America and around the world. Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price & is advocacy journalism at its most unsparing, and it demands to be seen, discussed, argued with, and acted upon.
