Walmart, one of the richest corporations in the world, refuses to pay its employees a livable wage or provide any form of decent healthcare, increasing reliance on government assistance, and the need for a social safety net.
That forces us...the tax payers to take up the slack for their corporate greed!
80% of Wal Mart employees are forced to rely on food stamps that we all pay for!

Walmart, one of the richest corporations in the world, refuses to pay its employees a livable wage or provide any form of decent healthcare, increasing reliance on government assistance, and the need for a social safety net.
At over $446 billion per year, Walmart is the third highest revenue grossing corporation in the world. Walmart earns over $15 billion per year in pure profit and pays its executives handsomely. In 2011, Walmart CEO Mike Duke – already a millionaire a dozen times over – received an $18.1 million compensation package. The Walton family controlling over 48 percent of the corporation through stock ownership does even better. Together, members of the Walton family are worth in excess of $102 billion – which makes them one of the richest families in the world.

What is shameful is that CEO Mike Duke makes more money in one hour, than his employees earn in an entire year. Yet, Walmart – which employs millions of people in its stores, distribution centers, and warehouses – continues to abuse its employees and refuses to pay them a livable wage. The company has frequently been charged with wage theft claims by workers who point to the most common forms of wage theft: the refusal to pay proper overtime, the refusal to honor the minimum wage, and illegal paycheck deductions.

Meanwhile, Walmart routinely blocks any attempt by workers to organize, using anti-union propaganda and scare tactics, firing employees without just cause, failing to provide any form of decent healthcare coverage or a livable wage.

To make matters worse, these abusive Walmart policies have increased employee reliance on government assistance and the need for a government funded social safety net. In fact, Walmart has become the number one driver behind the growing use of food stamps in the United States with "as many as 80 percent of workers in Wal-Mart stores using food stamps."

Yes, Walmart gives them a handout referring them to the local FS and Medicaid offices; when they go through orientation for hire.

They shift the cost to the consumer as always and roll in the dough. Many think they are saving money by shopping there but in the long run, they are simply deferring the cost through another agency.

Fast Food Chains, Department Stores, have never been high paying jobs!
Those jobs have traditionally been for new entry workers, who have no skilled trade. Seasonal employment for high school kids, people with disabilities, etc. If you want to earn a decent wage...stay out of Jail/away from drugs, and get a good education or go to a trade school. Protesting Wally world will do no good. You must be RESPONSIBLE for your own life choices.

"One Tin Soldier: The Legend Of Billy Jack"
Listen, children, to a story
That was written long ago
'Bout a kingdom on a mountain
And the valley folk below
On the mountain was a treasure
Buried deep beneath a stone
And the valley people swore
They'd have it for their very own
Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of Heaven
You can justify it in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgment day
On the bloody morning after who
One tin soldier rides away
So, the people of the valley
Sent a message up the hill
Asking for the buried treasure
Tons of gold for which they'd kill
Came an answer from the kingdom
"With our brothers, we will share
All the secrets of our mountain
All the riches buried there"
Now, the valley cried with anger
"Mount your horses, draw your sword"
And they killed the mountain people
So, they won their just reward
Now, they stood beside the treasure
On the mountain dark and red
Turn the stone and looks beneath it
"Peace on Earth", was all it said
Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of Heaven
You can justify it in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgment day
On the bloody morning after who
One tin soldier rides away
Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of Heaven
You can justify it in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgment day
On the bloody morning after who
One tin soldier rides away
If the mountain folk are sharing all their treasure with the valley folk; then how is this in any way like rich folks sharing their riches with the poor

I wonder if that's the speech the Walton Family, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates gave to their slave girls in China that made them ALL billionaires. You Repubs just don't get it. Henry Ford gave his employees a 500% raise. He was called a Socialist and a Communist for doing it. A reported ask Ford why he did it. His reply was, they are my customers. The top have gained 387% in income over the past 20 years. The middle class that WORKS for them have gained 18%. Will these numbers ever sink in to your Repubs brain? Millionaire and Billionaire CEOs have closed 27,000 American factories in the past 20 years. Laying off 5.5 million workers. Will these numbers EVER be understood by you Repubs?

Rednecks are from Welfare Queen States.....

As it turns out, it is red states that are overwhelmingly the Welfare Queen States. Yes, that's right. Red States — the ones governed by folks who think government is too big and spending needs to be cut — are a net drain on the economy, taking in more federal spending than they pay out in federal taxes. They talk a good game, but stick Blue States with the bill.

Take a look at the difference between federal spending on any given state and the federal taxes received from that state. We measure the difference as a dollar amount: Federal Spending per Dollar of Federal Taxes. A figure of $1.00 means that particular state received as much as it paid in to the federal government. Anything over a dollar means the state received more than it paid; anything less than $1.00 means the state paid more in taxes than it received in services. The higher the figure, the more a given state is a welfare queen.

Of the twenty worst states, 16 are either Republican dominated or conservative states. Let's go through the top twenty.

New Mexico:$2.03
Mississippi:$2.02
Alaska:$1.84
Louisiana:$1.78
West Virginia:$1.76
North Dakota:$1.68
Alabama:$1.66
South Dakota:$1.53
Kentucky:$1.51
Virginia:$1.51
Montana:$1.47
Hawaii:$1.44
Maine:$1.41
Arkansas:$1.41
Oklahoma:$1.36
South Carolina:$1.35
Missouri:$1.32
Maryland:$1.30
Tennessee:$1.27
Idaho:$1.21
Does anyone else notice the overwhelming presence of northern "rugged individualist" states, like Alaska, the Dakotas and Montana, along with most of the South? Why it's almost like there's a pattern here or something.

Where can we find liberal bastions California, New York, and Massachusetts? California is 43rd, getting back only $0.78 for every dollar it sends to Washington. New York is 42nd, and one penny better off, at $0.79 per dollar. Massachusetts is 40th, receiving $0.82 for every dollar it sends to DC.

Go ahead and bookmark this article. The next time some smarmy teabagger tries to tell you it's liberals who are ruining the country and spending us into oblivion, kindly point them to the evidence that shows it is GOP states, not Democrat states, who are Welfare Queens. It is GOP states who spend more than they collect in taxes. It is GOP states who are out of balance, nationally.

See if they still want to cut off funding when it means no more socialism for slave states.

The Geography of Government Benefits
The share of Americans’ income that comes from government benefit programs, like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, more than doubled over the last four decades, rising from 8 percent in 1969 to 18 percent in 2009.

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2012/02/12...

LINDSTROM, Minn.— Ki Gulbranson owns a logo apparel shop, deals in jewelry on the side and referees youth soccer games. He makes about $39,000 a year and wants you to know that he does not need any help from the federal government.
...
Yet this year, as in each of the past three years, Mr. Gulbranson, 57, is counting on a payment of several thousand dollars from the federal government, a subsidy for working families called the earned-income tax credit. He has signed up his three school-age children to eat free breakfast and lunch at federal expense. And Medicare paid for his mother, 88, to have hip surgery twice.
...
The government safety net was created to keep Americans from abject poverty, but the poorest households no longer receive a majority of government benefits. A secondary mission has gradually become primary: maintaining the middle class from childhood through retirement. The share of benefits flowing to the least affluent households, the bottom fifth, has declined from 54 percent in 1979 to 36 percent in 2007, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis published last year.
