    That’s because Walmart’s a big welfare queen.

    The Democrats have. They make that claim all the time.
    Isn’t it Democrats that say that Food Stamps and Welfare checks grow the economy…?

    No business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country – Franklin D Roosevelt.

    Rad-dish: FDR was a socialist by fear of Huey “Kingfisg” Long. FDR wouldn’t have know a poor American if one bit him. He was a scumbag.

    Bennett supports the socialist meme of income disparity. The CEO of Walmart began as a minimum wage emploeee at a Walmart. Te magagers of Walmart store began as a minimum wage Walmart employee.

    Who doesn’t partipate in the idiotic Walmart “strikes”? MOST WALMART EMPLOYEES DO NOT PARTICIPATE.

    So when will the “job creators” stop hoarding their money or shipping it overseas to actually hire people or expand growth? How much wealth do they need to just sit idle?
    .
    Supply-side or consumer-generated doesn’t work by itself – we need the best of both philosophies. You need people to buy your goods. The point is, we are subsidizing many (not all) companies with taxpayer treasure when they do not pay their employees a living wage. Isn’t that a form of “socialism”?

    First of all meme is a reference, a slogan I believe is the word you are looking for.

    Second of all, Coming from wealth to working at Wal-mart to coming to wealth again has a good chance at not being meritocratic. Networking for example tends to play a significant roll.

    Second of all Walmart Canada at least does hire directly into management, can you get a position from floor, yes. However you by no means need to start at min wage.

    Third, a job can be bad without you leaving it. At the end of the day financial failure reduces room for negotiation ( Incidentally this makes it beneficial for employers to keep wages below living as it prevents savings to keep one afloat if you lose your job)

    Here is the problem, you are not paid by what you produce, you are paid based by supply of labor. Additionally expanding eligibility does create a norm, its a beneficial norm

    Henry Ford doubled his employees salary to five dollars a day to keep down employee turnover. It made a profit.

    FDR was popular, he served four terms.

    The USA now has a gini coefficient the same as Uruguay and it is still going up into banana republic territory. That is the one percent paying people below their worth.

    Walmart pays more than Target, but no one picks on Target because they have a union. If Walmart was unionized, youall would love it! The hypocrisy is mind blowing.

    @Enoki

    Yep, that’s what they say! Obama said we get $1.50 back for every $1.00 we spend on welfare & food stamps. I really don’t understand his math. I bet he failed Econ 101.

    @Tigger

    You’re wrong, Tigger. I believe less than 5% of the workforce is unionized, and unions are the only financial force seriously able to oppose the Republican election financing – it’s the main reason why unions are targeted by Republican-held states.
    .
    Jobs go overseas because there are laws to make it lucrative for business to do so, and there are other financial incentives.
    .
    The company where I worked brought in Indian programmers on visa – hell, the place looked like a Gunga Dinh movie. We trained them, and then all the programmers were fired. 15 years for that company, I made many millions of dollars for them, and they kicked us all to the curb.
    .
    Put the blame where it belongs – not on the American worker, unionized or not.
