"Opining in today’s New York Times, history professor Nelson Lichtenstein asserts that Wal-Mart uses an 'authoritarian style, by which executives pressure store-level management to squeeze more and more from millions of clerks, stockers and lower-tier managers.' Then he scolds Wal-Mart for being so bigoted that it erects 'obstacles to women’s advancement.' This tale is highly improbable. A company that squeezes maximum possible profits from its workers does not refuse to promote women simply because of their sex." (06/22/11)
