Maura Stephens Interviewed About Her Article on Walmart and Middle Class Erosion

Walmart Seems Like a Deal, but Have You Crunched the Numbers?

In this “Truthout Interviews” program, I had a chance to speak to Maura Stephens, a writer for Truthout and the Associate Director at the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College, about her article, Walmart Is Not the Bargain You Might Think. In our discussion, we touch on a number of points she makes in her piece about the economic repercussions of Walmart’s way of doing business and how it contributes to the erosion of a middle class way of life for many Americans.
