There are many reasons to not want Wall Mart in town. Look at the above site and check out the rest of the Wall Mart story. You may just change your mind.
No they won't, reading these posts is bring back so many memories, Like the fight against prisons, wow, the'll never build one in my back yard, etc...When the jobs left, the folks demanded prisons for their neighborhood, anything for a job, good or bad, what's the diff?..Manipulation, so mind changing, Walmarts will destroy every mom and pop business in the area, but you'll still defend Walmart to the death...The more you shop at walMart the more you'll learn to hate it, mark my words, this is a fact...

Read this on how they pay. However, many local politicians are "convinced $$$" and unless the public/citizens stop them they will probably give in.

Lets talk taxes, the big incentive to cities with a WalMart is that collecting taxes becomes so much more cost effective, once the mom & pops are gone that no-hassel tax payment to the cty is so welcome, you have to realize that collecting taxes is like pulling teeth, all kinds of excuses, months behind etc., with wallmart, things just got a lot easier...And WalMart will bring their buddy along, Lowes...Politicians are lazy, this is easy!

Well, some of us work at Walmart's competitor and we get all of that, except we get fresh Krispy Kreme donuts, cookouts, and catered meals at busy times (like black Friday), and for employee appreciation. We get paid holidays and 401k contribution too. I love my store and my job!

i have worked at Wal-Mart since set up. Wonderful place to work. Have worked at a few other places close around and not been treated very nice at those places. I talk to alot of people that use to be your customers that are now customers of Wal-Marts. Better open your eyes. You don't treat people like dogs and get away with it forever. Someday the good lord will take things away from you.

I can't imagine why anyone would rather shop at Wal Mart, but that's my opinion. The difference between Wal Mart and Target is like the difference between apples and oranges, you get a sour one in either, every once in awhile. I once asked an associate at Wal Mart where something was and you would have thought I just asked her to lick my shoes. She was very rude and gave me a vague location so I asked her to show me where "over there" was exactly. That really ripped her! Anyway I don't own Target, so I don't look for the Lord to take it away from me. Enjoy your job, I know I do!
