    No real "screwing" of the SS system occurred, rates are set to revert back to the previous mark of 6.2 percent, if the fiscal cliff isn't averted. Not permanent, and certainly not back breaking.

    In my opinion, the Walmart grocery section stinks.
    I use Walmart for some basic household goods, site to store items and some electronics.

    I was making $10.50, which is around what average Walmart employees make.

    Some of the smartest people, are the worst with finances.
    That's no joke.

    Most people at work, don't save a dime for anything.

    Principles? Perhaps you misunderstand the situation. Many a folk work for poorly managed companies, and doing so has nothing to do with principles. Why is the concept of giving the worker some. Ice in the company, especially a large company like Walmart, some voice so hard to accept?

    There is a hard limit Walmart could actually raise their pay collectively to.
    If they were able to cut all dividends, they could possibly give everyone a raise of $3-4 an hour.
    That's the high end, in a scenario that wouldn't exist.

    Not sure that is completely true. Walmart is doing well enough it should be able to find a way to more employee friendly. But I'm open to information.

    It's not easy, and it's not supposed to be. Getting educated and increasing your income and net worth is hard work. It's not for the lazy for sure. And the lazy shouldn't complain about making $10.50/hour.

    God Bless you Sir. I hope that someone left you some money or your wife had a good job. all I know is that it would be hard to do without some help inside your family or an inheritance.
