They're an evil empire taking over our economy and making it worse cause they are closing all these stores and pay they're employees crap wages. And don't respect them. It's like your a slave to them. Think that we are paying this company to make everything in Japan or china and even have horrible conditions for them. Is this what our founding fathers really wanted?

Wal Mart is ran by Nazis.. The new evil empire that will take over the world. As we speak Wal Mart has secret ninja warriors prepareing to attack world leaders. It has been said that Mc Donalds has joined forces and will be lauching full out assault on the US in the next few months. While everyone is worring about Syria and twerking the world as we know it is coming to a end. Everyone will have to do the Wal Mart cheer or be beheaded. All we can do is pray..

There are plenty of other places to shop, mom and pop busonesses, privately owned, even kmart is an improvement, you may pay a little more but at least you know the money is paying for some little kids dance lessons or drum class or even just a better wage or insurance.

Exactly. Yes Wal*Mart might have a bunch of cheap stuff. But look at what it's doing to all the other shops and stores.

The study,“Hidden Cost of Wal-Mart Jobs,” found that the average Wal-Mart worker required $730 in taxpayer-funded healthcare and $1,222 in other forms of assistance, such as food stamps and subsidized housing, to get by.

A single Wal-Mart Supercenter store in Wisconsin requires taxpayers to shell out as much as $1.7 million per year -- or nearly $6,000 per employee -- in aid, according to one estimate in the report.

Yeah target wegmans dollar general kmart pay so great as well. Lets see the study on tgose businesses and financial assistance. I bet they are the same. If you cant make it on a 8 dollar wage then I am sure you cannot make it on an 9 dollar wage at these other places.

The world needs minimum wage jobs. I suppose you would prefer they pay 15 an hour and charge 10 bucks for a gallon of milk? Minimum wage jobs were never meant to be a career but if your best skill is restocking shelves, have at it and enjoy your job.

Minimum wage jobs are supposed to be starter jobs. Some folks, including the moron in the White House, do not understand that basic principle.

I swear WalMart puts something in the employee lounge's soda machine. Their employees have dat Innsmouth look. Everytime I look at the big-booty-bish cashing me out I think "I know how you feel, mang, but my dumbass girlfriend doesn't understand the concept that informed consumers can force corporations to follow ethical & legal guidelines by buying less & at other vendors," until she fails to grasp the process of TAKING MY $20 BILL SO I CAN PAY THE REMAINING TOTAL WITH MY MASTERCARD, YOU DOO-DOO-DUMBO SKANK!
