  •  We are subsidizing their payroll taxes (6+ / 0-)

    by allowing them to continue as the largest food stamp recipient in the country.

    When we were very young my husband worked at a distribution center. It was the first job he could get out of college and we were newly married with a baby on the way. It wasn't that long ago and I HATED the way they treated their employees then and I hate the way they treat them now.

    The working conditions were horrible and everyone was too terrified to speak up. Weekly meetings were held to discourage and quash any idea of unionization. People in depressed areas who want to work will take ANY job they can get for any wage and Walmart exploits them.

    Uncultivated minds are not full of wild flowers, like uncultivated fields. Villainous weeds grow in them, and they are full of toads.--Logan Pearsall Smith
