'It's not right': Shoppers angry over Walmart charging more for plus-size clothing
Walmart Canada is facing criticism for charging more for plus-size clothing, a policy some shoppers consider an unjust "fat tax." "It's unacceptable," said Walmart shopper Shannon Mozak, of Edmonton, who sometimes buys plus sizes. "It's a form of shaming people." Walmart and some other retailers mark up their plus-size clothing with the justification that bigger sizes cost more to produce.
