Michelle Obama praises Wal-Mart's veterans pledge
from Women's Wear Daily
First lady Michelle Obama, more accustomed to championing Seventh Avenue designers than discount retailers, has turned her praise on retail giant Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Obama, who recently addressed a meeting of executives at the Business Roundtable, held up Wal-Mart Stores as a model for other businesses to follow because it has pledged to hire military veterans. Wal-Mart has said it will hire any veteran seeking employment that has been honorably discharged in the past 12 months and expects to hire 100,000 veterans over the next five years.
