A deli manager from a Wal-Mart (WMT +0.2%) hopes an online petition she started will lead to the resignation of the firm's Chairman and CEO - as well kickstart an external probe of the company. While the rabble-rousing may not make a difference in how the board tackles their Mexican scandal, it's more evidence that questions about the company are likely to remain on display despite its "ultra-strict ethics code."

    I wonder how far that "ultra-strict ethics code" reaches in China?

    Maybe vendors have to pay bribes to employees of the companies to get their product in as well?

    Schumer, Dodd (embarrassed enough when he got caught that he resigned), or any number of US politicos take kazillions from the people they are supposed to regulate and no-one says a word. Walmart (which, btw, i despise for a LOT of reasons) greases the palms in the normal course of business in foreign countries and people are ready to lynch them.

     

    Nothing like (blind) American arrogance.

    Another one who thinks they will change the world.Once the CEO resigns,then what? A plan B should include more than a script for a Reality Show.
