"Saving Money" at Walmart at the Expense of Workers & Jobs

Ask yourself the next time you go to Walmart to save a few bucks; what is it costing the workers- not only there, but the thousands of workers out of jobs presently being outsourced to third world countries where Walmart and other mega corporations can obtain cheap labor.

The next time you go to Walmart to shop, pick up and inspect some of the items for sale. Where are they made, China Mexico, Taiwan. Indonesia, India? How many items there do you see actually made in the USA? Then ask yourself; what is this doing to the economy of the United States,(among other discrepencies)?

When Americans are out of jobs and paychecks with which to pay for cheap outsourced goods, who then will Walmart and other greedy corporations have left to buy their goods? Perhaps they are biting the hand that feeds them after all. If no one shops at Walmart, or buys products made outside the USA, then maybe corporations will begin manufacturing inside the US once again. How much money do these corporate executives actually need to live on to survive? How much indeed, compared to the indecent starvation wages paid their workers, so these corporate robber barons and YOU, THE SHOPPER, can save a couple of bucks, which will end up in Walmart coffers and the execs bank accounts anyway?

I would rather take a beating than shop at Walmart, for this very reason. I go out of my way to shop anywhere but Walmart. I try to buy used, at thrift stores, garage sales, trade, barter, anything I can to starve out the greedy system, the corporations, and the one's who own them, the so called "elite", that's destroying this country.

Since the government and the politicians can't or won't take responsibility for change, YOU AND I must. The only way to change the present sorry state of affairs is to stop buying their crap, and boycott these greedy bloodsuckers.

If you can't see any of this as being valid, or factual, then please do not complain about America going to hell in a handbasket when you are helping to carry it there.
