    ain't this just special, that Union Busting small store smashing retail giant will allow unions in China but not in the US. Where are they gonna get their good from?? Bunch of low lying mf'ers , they are about as low as whale crap.


    BEIJING (Reuters) - The world's largest retailer, Wal-Mart, is now host to the world's largest communist party, state media said on Thursday, after establishing the first party branch in one of the U.S. company's China stores.

    A Chinese Communist Party official in the northeast city Shenyang said a Wal-Mart store there had set up a party branch on August 12 -- the first branch of the ruling Communist Party in the U.S. icon of global capitalism, Xinhua news agency reported.

    "Employees at the Wal-Mart store will now have access to CPC membership," Xinhua said, referring to the Communist Party of China.

    It did not say how many of the 700 Wal-Mart employees at the Shenyang store had applied to join the 70-million strong party.

    A Wal-Mart spokesman was not immediately available for comment on the report.

    The announcement comes soon after Wal-Mart bowed to a Chinese government campaign to establish state-controlled trade unions in its outlets across the country.

    Those unions also fall under party control and rarely advocate strikes
