Detroit Schools to Train Students for Wal-Mart

Good Magazine is reporting that four Detroit High Schools will begin training students to work at Wal-Mart.

Students will receive 10 credits for 11 weeks of job readiness preparation with the retail giant.

Advocates say it’s a good opportunity for students, given the city’s staggering unemployment rate.

Advocates for the poor say the students are being trained for dead-end jobs and lives of subserviance.
