[DLBN]AFTER 44 PEOPLE WERE EITHER WOUNDED OR KILLED AT AN EL PASO WALMART, the CEO SAYS he is “Looking for things that we can do to improve the safety and security of our stores.” After 25 years of gun crimes at WMT—he’s a little late. [ALNORMAN2

[DLBN]HOME DEPOT SAYS “WE HAVE SUPPLIERS MOVING PRODUCTION TO TAIWAN, VIETNAM, THAILAND, INDONESIA. EVEN BACK TO THE UNITED STATES” to avoid Trump tariffs—which will have a $2B “cost impact” on HD—which might “even” have to sell US products![ALNORMAN]

[DLBN]WALMART SUES TESLA TO REMOVE SUBSTANDARD SOLAR PANELS AT 240 OF ITS STORES, & to pay damages for 7 fires Walmart says Tesla’s Solar City caused. WMT should remove its substandard products while at it.[ALNORMAN]

[DLBN] JUDGE FINDS A HINT OF “SOMETHING ROTTEN” IN WALMART CULTURE, BUT REFUSES TO ALLOW GENDER DISCRIMINATION CLASS ACTION CASE filed by 100 women in FL. last Feb charging WMT with withholding raises & promotions from female workers.[ALNORMAN]

How about no, Elections Canada.

One #ClimateChange denying Maxime Bernier isn't equal to a worldwide scientific consensus that the climate emergency is real & urgent.

It's not partisan to discuss the single greatest threat faced by humanity. https://t.co/cVfCUSmXqf

[DLBN]WORKER/SELLER-OWNED CO-OPS—ANOTHER WAY TO BUST AMZN/UBER: “allowing wrkrs & small businesses to collaborate to negotiate better treatment from megacorporations. Organized sellers could build their own cooperative online commerce platform.”[ALNORMAN]

[DLBN] AMZN WANTS BEST GOVT MONEY CAN BUY: exec’s made $12,700 in contributions to the Rep. who’s leading the House antitrust investigation. Companies “work behind-the-scenes to cozy up to lawmakers to advance their corporate interests.”[ALNORMAN]

[DLBN]“LOWE’S TOLD THOUSANDS OF EMPLOYEES that our jobs were being eliminated & outsourced...Executives and shareholders have made themselves richer, while the rest of us are losing our jobs, livelihoods, & benefits.”[ALNORMAN]

This story from Reno County shows how dollar stores can impact rural America. In one small town, the city council rejected a dollar store & the local grocer is thriving. In another there are no local grocers- just dollar stores resulting in a food desert.
