    They've expanded to better compete with Amazon, through their Vudu service and in some ways, it's superior to Amazon movies, with the adoption of ultraviolet.
    They may need to gobble up some other services, to fully compete or they may be better sacking the crappy employees and paying new and better employees more.

    Living wages are only subjective to a certain extent. If your wages put you below Harrington's definition of the poverty line - that is, needing to choose between essentials - , then something needs to change.

    And your solution is to that is allowing these companies to misbehave here in the US as well? Brilliant.

    Even the preference for essentials is some what subjective.
    I could be happy living in a one room, wood heated, no a/c shack, with well water.
    Others would find that impossible to tolerate.

    So how much per hour should WalMart pay a greeter or cart pusher? Right now that is $8 per hour (more than minimum wage btw)

    "Reasonable" to who? You? Collectivists? I think you are throwing up frustrations with the trend of cost of living today as everyone is, however, I think your core blame for these frustrations is misplaced.
