The reason I'm saying Walmart should do these things, though, is not because I think all companies should offer sick pay and scholarships, it's because of the one part of my message that you failed to quote or respond to. The part about the average employee there making under $9 dollars per hour, which barely pays the rent for these people.
Regardless of what you want to claim, not all these people can go work somewhere else. They should extend the benefits I have at my job to their employees because they are barely getting by. I don't want them to "get paid for nothing." I want them to have opportunity and some manner of comfort if they are working every bit as hard as their other Americans yet making $8 dollars an hour at the largest retail corporation in the United States, a business who has seen their revenues increase every single year.
