Mexico scandal is pressuring Walmart in US

Monday, April 30, 2012

In Los Angeles, a Walmart building permit is getting a once-over. In New York, the City Council is investigating a possible land deal with the retailer’s developer in Brooklyn.

A state senator in California is pushing for a formal audit of a proposed Walmart in San Diego. And in Boston and its suburbs, residents are pressuring politicians to disclose whether they took contributions from the company.

The revelation of a bribery scandal involving the retailer’s Mexican subsidiary is giving critics a new reason to say no to its new stores.
