Wal-Mart Gets Political, Plans To Register Voters
Sep 20, 2006, 5:00 AM
The Hill reports that Wal-Mart, the nation's largest employer, is poised to launch a voter registration and education campaign this fall. Aimed at its 1.3 million employees, the campaign is an effort to combat growing criticism from Democrats and labor unions. Wal-Mart had been scheduled to announce the program yesterday, but because of last-minute reviews by its lawyers, it delayed the launch until next week, the report said.
