Next year could be shaping up as a tough one for Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
The $443 billion retail giant is fighting scandals on several fronts. Allegations of bribery in Mexico continue in an increasingly hot spotlight. The company has also been associated with the Bangladesh factory fire that killed 112 garment workers, although the retailer said a supplier subcontracted work to the factory without its authorization. Wal-Mart has also been facing protests and rallies by employees. The company said the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union is responsible for organizing the actions and filed an unfair labor charge with the National Labor Relations Board to stop what it said are unlawful efforts to disrupt its business.
