Big Business, Big Union, Small Town – Documentary
Production Company: Zoot Pictures
Aired on: Global Currents
This is a really interesting documentary I cut that focuses on a Wal-Mart in the small town of Weyburn, Saskatchewan. This store became one of the battle grounds in the efforts of UFCW to unionize the Wal-Mart stores in Canada. As these two corporate powerhouses battle it out, the residents of the small town get caught in the middle of the war with their only hope being to keep the town and their jobs alive.
