This almost FEELS like a spoof or parody headline . . . but sadly, it's not.  Walmart was asking for canned food donations...not to feed the needy  but  to feed their hungry EMPLOYEES.

A photo surfaced from a Walmart in Canton, Ohio where the store put out bins asking its employees for donations for other, quote, "associates in need."  Because

HALF of Walmart's employees get paid $25,000-a-year or less, they may need some extra help during this time of year, but it seems a little ridiculous for your employer to have to beg people to donate food for your employees...but I guess it's better than paying them more.
