    Sounds like most of these "worker strikes" were actually paid shrills and not walmart associates.

    Walmart pays the same if not more to to most other retailers like Target, Kmart, Sears, Dollar Store, Best Buy, Publix, Kroger, Meijer,  small mom and pop shops ect ect, let alone the majority of the food service industry.

    Fact- There are more small business' in the USA today then ever before.

      Nobody is saying that Walmart is the only low paying Employer. It's just a starting place as the largest Employer on the planet. The basic things workers need to survive come from 2 places. Their Employer or Government assistance. It's time the richest Employer in the history of business pay a living wage. Just because the CEO of Walmart says it pays in the top half yesterday does not make it so. I would like to see that chart with only the hourly workers.
       And the small Mom and Pop shops? Walmart put THOUSANDS of them out of business. I would love to be able to go to some small  family owned grocery store. Their are none of any kind where I live.
