This article describes the latest in "an arms race by large retail chains to offer education benefits...  service-industry employers have started or expanded programs to offer free or greatly-discounted tuition to all of their employees, often delivered in an online format." The spokespeople in the article take pains to say there's no watering down of standards that results from this association (of course, though, it works out well for Walmart if the university denies the employees admission).
