SAYS THE ADD......... even WALMART only makes 7 cents NET PROFIT on every DOLLAR OF SALES.AND ITS 1MILLION PLUS EMPLOYEES ,probably pay more in state income taxes, not to mention federal income taxes, SOC SEC,taxes,,unemployement taxes , and i can only guess what else, . WALMART PAYS LESS IN DIVIDENDS TO ITS STOCKHOLDERS ,then it does in taxes.
