A Cleveland Wal-Mart store is holding a food drive — for its own employees.

“Please donate food items so associates in need can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner,” reads a sign accompanied by several plastic bins.

The Plain Dealer first reported on the food drive, which has sparked outrage in the area.

“That Wal-Mart would have the audacity to ask low-wage workers to donate food to other low-wage workers — to me, it is a moral outrage,” Norma Mills, a customer, told the Plain Dealer.

A company spokesman defended the food drive, telling the newspaper that it is evidence that employees care about each other.

Wal-Mart has been criticized for paying low wages to its 2.2 million employees. Wal-Mart turned a profit of $15.7 billion last year.
