    than 24% of the rest of Americans! If that amassed Walton family fortune ($130Billion) were to be distributed among all Walmart employees, they'd each receive about $37,000 (call that combat pay). And they'd build our economy from the middle class out instead of the top down.

    WalMart systematically destroys competition by underselling every ma and pa store within miles. Do you think Walmart employees can speak intelligently on bicycles? No, that is not important to them, they just sell them while real bike shops vanish. Same in most every industry.

    Can you raise a family or pay a tuition on a Walmart salary? HA!

    I went to WalMart years ago on an errand for my neighbor to buy dog food very cheap. I was horrified with the parking lot full of mutants on their pilgrimage to this evil temple and false god of discount soft drinks, bottled water, and diapers.

    That was it. No more cheap dog food for Holly, no more stepping foot in WalMart. The mood is destructive to humanity.

    Calling WalMart a responsible retailer in a community is like calling boxing a career choice. Just as self-destructive.

    I am delighted WalMart employees are speaking up. I hope it shames the customers who are bowing to the 1%.
