Which is more than twice the starting pay in most of the south...I spent a couple of winters in ND before the oil boom, the State sucked then and even more now. Ask one of those high paid Wal-Mart employees how much rent they pay a month for crap housing, if they can find it...how much food costs.
You idiots continually skirt the borders of reality, but that's not a bit surprising.
Yeah, just like someone making 11.75 hr and trying to raise a family will proudly get rich on that Walmart stock they buy with that extra money.

I wonder why Walmart is so charitable in New Mexico why it had to relied on their bought and paid for Congressman Bozeman to build a major road to their front door at WM head quarters.

<quoted text>Do you have a problem with people making money buying stock. It is because obama thinks it's wrong to make money. You know those evil rich people your old pal obama is always degrading. Old barney their is nothing wrong with making money. Capitalism does work. And rich people, the majority are charitable good people. And without those people we would be a third world country. Without those rich business people we would have even more people out of work. You president wants to take from the rich give to the poor. He can not have it both ways. Our economy is getting worst. Open up your eyes and look. It ain't as rosey as you make it out to be. Obama is a socialist who is dividing our country instead of uniteing us. He lies and you old barney are dumb enough to believe him. His policies is wreaking us.
Barney is a taker so ANYBODY that has just a little more than he has doesn't deserve it in his eyes.

But Walmart is successful and to be considered successful you must be doing better than someone, therefore according to liberal thinking, you have to be taking something away from those that are not successful for you to be in your position, therefore, you are evil. I remember the mom and pop stores of yesteryear. Any of those that did well were bad mouthed also, let's face it, liberals are never going to be pro business, unless the business is failing, then the business will have to lay off workers and they will be hated for that. I guess the Barney character is right, sit on your butt, draw a check, get on Topix and pretend you know what you are talking about. Silly way to live, but it seems to work for the boy.
Here is what does not work for the boy.

Bozeman spokesman Patrick Creamer said the congressman’s request for the funding was penciled in for $3 million when the bill was in committee.

“It was very unexpected on our end,” Creamer said.“It’s rare that you get full funding.”

Young, chairman of the committee, inserted new allocations for hundreds of projects around the nation the day before the House passed the $284 billion bill March 10. The Bentonville project was among the late additions.

Ask for three million, and get 37 million US TAX dollars, a by-pass debate, slipped in at the last minuet.

Now I admit that happen a few years ago, but last year Walmart after taxes made 15 billion dollars, they paid their CEO seven million dollars.

This Republican Congressman gave them 37 million of your tax dollars.

How are you going to defend that?

BTW- that is a reply with no condescending comments, can you reciprocate?

Very small percentage of the revenue produced for the government, of course you have a problem with the government providing any infrastructure for the ones that are producing, most nonproductive people do. If Mr Walton had had your business insight, he would have died delivering milk, door to door. You should be in downtown Bentonville, it will take at least that much road work to handle the vendor traffic. I believe this is a good investment for the government, as far as return on investment.

If that employee would just buy 5% of their pay in Wal Mart stock Wall Mart will match that 15% thats a instant 15% return on their saings. and wal Mart considers the 15% incom so th taxes are witheld at that purchase time. Even if the stock stayed stagnant there would be a 15% return. Then when sold the only tax to be paid would be on the gain if the stock price rose. Thats not too shabby. I know people who purchased just a small percentage way back 40 years ago who became millionares. and there arent broker fees to pay. No other company that Im aware of has enabled their employees to prosper in such a manner. Anyone can save 10% of their income. If someone savs 10% and uses that 10% to buy bargain investments they will prosper. There is a cause & effect natural Karma that makes positive actions like saving attract other positive actions. Having money isnt evil. Resenting Taxes and the goverment rewarding sloth & parasitizm isnt being greedy.

You speak words of wisdom. Life is what you make it, it's not so much what you have in this life, it is what you do with what you have. And like you said some Wal Mart workers ended up millionaires after starting at the bottom and working their way up. This country rewards hard work. Wal Mart is one of the best things to ever happen to this great Nation of ours.

Both of my kids started off working at Walmart, one now works in the vendor community making about 125K, the other used it as a starting point, continued his education and if doing equally well. The entry level jobs at Walmart are exactly that, entry level. If you are good, you get promoted or move on. If you not, you spend your life greeting people and stocking shelves, you weren't going to do any better any place else. You have a group of people that are going to excel any place they go, you have a group that are destined to stock shelves, the majority of us fall some where between. Looking back at your posts, it seems that you were destined to be the one to clean out deep fryers, if you don't want to do that, get a job sweeping up at health food store. I guarantee you that those of you that choose to lay around feeling sorry for themselves are never going to conquer the world.

To be fair a lot of what wal mart sells is cheap imported crap. I owned a old aluminum housing sears craftsman electric sander. It finally wore out. So I got a plastic black & decker from Wal Mart. About two hours of using it (not continious) it burnt up the electric motor was stinking. Took it back Wal mart exchanged it no Problem. After the fourth one I gave up. So I went looking for a heavy duty made in the usa quality sander. Home Depo- Lowes- thetool box ect everywhere I looked that all had the same cheap imported crappy tools. never found a USA built Heavy duty sander like I desires. Then my wife found a craftsman exactly like my old one ata yard sale. It didnt work. But I took the two apart and used the best parts and now have a serviceable unit.
