    The vast majority of WM employees are NOT full time, that is the point. They completely restrict full time to management.

    For somone who claims to have "studied" WM, you sure don't show much knowledge.

    Now that the low hanging fruit is picked, gonna try and reach a bit higher?
    What has become obvious is your total lack of understanding of business as well as your support for Union Management and their high salaries

I competed against Wal-Mart and understand their structure which apparently you don't
    Oh dear god you asked for a corp that doesn't pay a living wage. Wall Mart doesn't pay a living wage to many of its employees.

    Like I said it is the standard of living in the city vs the suburbs. Chicago is more expensive hence the higher pay. Relatively speaking there really is no difference in what one can save in either environment, meaning I could pay 1.99 for a loaf of bread here on the outskirts of Chicago but in the city it would cost $2.49 so the percentage of what I'm putting away of those in the city is pretty much the same.

    It's just more expensive to live in an urban area, hence employers need to pay more.

    Hell I exploited the standard of living when I was a teenager. I used to take the train to Chicago and work at a CD store for $12.00 an hour in The Loop, then take the train back to the burbs, and I was making 2x what jobs were paying only 30 miles away.

    You really do need to prove that, since ABC disagrees with you:

    The nationís largest private employer with 1.4 million workers, most of whom are full-time, made the changes as part of its open-enrollment period for next yearís coverage. Walmart does not disclose the percentage of full-time employees.

    The company is continuing coverage for current part-timers, who previously didnít have a minimum number of hours they had to work but were eligible after one year of employment.
    This article goes on to say that WalMart has provided healthcare coverage for every employee at a cost of $15 every pay period regardless of hours worked. Now? New hires will not be eligible for healthcare through their program unless they work over 24 hours a week. That sounds downright generous.

    You have yet to provide your definition of a living wage so hard to debate the topic. Is it a living wage for a second wage earner in a family to make $10 an hour working part time? Do you know what the major income earner in the family makes?

    Neither does Target. Neither does KMart. Neither does McDonald's. Neither does Wendy's. Neither does Taco Bell. Neither does . . . I think you get the picture. Unless one is in management with any of these kinds of companies, they are not meant to be careers. What is so difficult to understand about that?

    Or do you think the fast-foodie at the drive-up window should be paid $30,000 a year?

    Why don't you stop playing games and tell me what your definition of a living wage is and how you know someone isn't making a living wage for their personal situation?
