Depressing as hell.
Thousands apply for jobs at Wal-Mart in Livonia
August 6, 2007
More than 5,000 people applied for 300 new jobs at the Wal-Mart Supercenter that opens Wednesday in Livonia.
The 210,000-square-foot store is the first Wal-Mart in metro Detroit to sell groceries. The store will employ 530 workers, some of whom transferred from the smaller Livonia store that closes tomorrow evening, said store manager Rita Acosta.
That means for over 5k people, a job at Wal-Mart was a good thing. Jeez.
