You know what - that Walmart manager does not have to have a college degree and makes about 200M a year - a Dept Mgr makes about 50M - I know people with 4 years of college starting jobs at less than 30M per year. I certainly agree that a college education is a great thing, but many of the trades people make equal or better money. The only figure that bothers me is unemployment - if you are working then good for you.

$200,000,000 a year?

At any rate, without a college education, you tend to stagnate your wages at what the unions negotiate for you and have little, to no upward mobility. Life isn't always about money, it is a wonderful thing to love what you do and get paid for it as well. It is short sighted to go to trade school just because you don't want to wait 4 to 8 years to get through school. Nothing good ever comes quick.

There is no way a manager makes millions a year. Maybe the board members and definitely the owner, but all those lower who maintain the stores make less than $80,000 a year, workers much less. Still a big amount though.

M stands for thousands - 200 thousand per year, a Walmart manager does make this much money, they get great bonus checks if they have a good year. Walmart is a publicly owned operation - share holders. People that go to work at Walmart, Target and some of these other large chain operations can do very well for themselves.

College is not for everyone - an electrician can make 50.00 per hour, I know that for sure because I paid it to one. I have friends that never went to college making 150,000 per year at Chevron and they are not in the union. I certainly urge everyone that can to go to college, but most important get a job and work your pants off and you will be ok.

I was referring to the people walking around inside the local Walmart. Also you're delusional if you think Walmart workers make anywhere near that amount. Asst managers at the Lucedale Walmart are making 800 every two weeks. I know because I used to pass out their checks. You do the math.

I said department mgrs and the store manager - I know what I am saying about these two positions - All kind of people go to Walmart, have mercy. I see doctors, lawyers and bank presidents in there sometimes. When you live in this county, go to Walmart, post on Topix you are one of the people you are talking about. I do not look down my nose at any working person - have no respect for anyone on disability or welfare that does not deserve it. All work is honorable.

Right! If an assistant manager isn't making anywhere near the number you quoted than a dept manager that's under an asst would make even less. Also it has nothing to do with a " working man". I'm talking about the seemingly huge cluster of people that live in this county that do not value an education. Of any kind. Just seems to me that the uneducated make up a large portion of population here. As stated in the study posted above. That being said... It doesn't apply to everyone. There are plenty of great folks living here as well.

Well it just seems to me that you think people that do regular labor are just not equal to people with a college degree. I have an educated family and have just never thought anything about people that did not go to college - I just believe everyone should work, if at all possible.

Yes. And I believe this is the first time I have ever seen them combined with Arabic numerals to express a value.
