Laura GreeneSOC 421 Section 1002Fall 2013Dr. MannMarxist Theories in Todays SocietyKarl Marx was a German philosopher whose work argon thought to still score an mold even on todays society. Marx believed that satisfying goods were the root of the loving world and that social life is fundamentally round conflict over food, land, money, and other material goods. The ideal government for Marx would be a communist state where resources are equally shared. However, here in America it seems we go away always have a democratic government where the rich shoot richer and the poor get poorer. For my final paper I will use the marxist suppositious ideas to investigate how Wal-Mart uses their economic and financial power to exploit their workers and suppliers. I will use Marxs theory to understand how Wal-Mart not only manipulates and exploits its employees and suppliers but, as well as how they are able to alienate their employees. Marxs theories remain as effective framework for expl aining the actions of a billion dollar multinational company because of its focal point Wage-Labor, Surplus Value and Alienation. By sharing with the reader the reasons why Wal-Mart should be considered a threat to our society by using Marx theories, I promise to bring attention the true cost of getting things for a bargain. For the take of this paper I will be focusing on his theories about Wage-Labor, Surplus Value and Alienation and using them to explain Wal-Marts actions.Throughout the stemma of his life, Marx came up with many theories.

However, todays materialistic society is so obsessed with the idea of commodity fetishism that we are blinded by the effects of it. We only think of where we can buy great fruits at low pric es? Wal-Mart is always the answer, but if only we knew at what price of exploiting and alter their employees, would we change out minds. Consumers never see the work that goes into making the product or how the labor has turned the worker into nothing but other commodity. All the consumer sees is the status or wealth depicted by the product. In all capitalism is what keeps our society in order. Even though Wal-Mart has croak the bourgeoisie that Marx was against and feared, he would be happy to say that his prediction came true. In all, through these examples, I hope to open the publics eyes and show them at what cost their bargains are costing the workers.
