Students-in-Training

It looks like four inner-city Detroit high schools want their students to save money and live better by getting them ready for the “real” world. The schools are teaming up with Walmart and offering classes in working at the giant retailer, which is an opportunity to train students in “entry-level” positions at Walmart.

Students will receive class credit in addition to job-readiness training, which will probably include anti-union banter, being conditioned to accept low-paying wages and learning to be good “subservient workers.”

I wonder if students who sign up for this program did so after reading about this woman’s financial problems after going to medical school. Also, will students receive both employee and student discounts at the same time?
