Walmart stockholder meeting underway

Walmart's annual big show in Fayetteville is underway and the big news from the stockholders meeting so far seems to be the appearance of Justin Timberlake, photo above from Walmart's own Twitter feed.

Rob Walton has said integrity is non-negotiable at Walmart and the company will be stepping up efforts to comply with federal foreign anti-bribery law (while, presumably, continuing to work in concert with other businesses to weaken the anti-bribery law.)

You can get by-the-second coverage in 140-character Twitter bursts at the link. It's by no means all propaganda or cheerleading from believers, though there's plenty of that. You'll also find cheers for a comment that stores are understaffed, calls for Rob Walton and Mike Duke to resign, complaints about mistreatment of unions and more. Example Tweet:

Livestreaming #WMTShares—they spent $$ for music & pomp, but they fight not to spend any of their billions on taxes or fair wages

Oh, yes, Walmart is broadcasting live on the web. Just caught Lionel Richie. Closing with Celine Dion.
