    The only bullies are the unskilled idiots who think they're worth $12.50/hr doing a job any able bodied individual could do.

    These are also the same idiots who are stealing jobs from teenagers and turning those jobs into careers - jobs that shouldn't be considered careers.

    As I wrote, it seems some have bought into the idea that it's better to be unemployed and self rightous, than employed and a contributor.

    Most understand how the former is far more destructive than the latter.

    Its not a matter of hating employers.It is a known fact Walmart mostly only hires part time workers and pays **** wages.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'd bet there are many in the "community" who would like to have a say in that, rather than allowing the self rightous decide they know whats better for them.

    The notion of a "Living" Wage being the standard at which you try to put the minimum wage is as idiotic as suggesting that one needs a "Fair" tax. It's aribtrary standards that have no actual useful definition

    I'm guessing your claim contains just a wee bit of hyperbole.

    That's what you think because you're under the delusion that business only exist to provide jobs, when in reality businesses are in business to make money...

    Watch, any new stores in DC will be limited to 174000 square feet. Existing stores will be walled off to reduce the size of the stores to 174000 square feet. That will reduce assortment for the customers and volume for the retailer. That will produce higher prices. There is no free ride, dear government.

    They wouldn't get cut that much.

    you liberals complain about food deserts that low income families do not have access to healthy food and fresh produce at a low price and isn't that one of the products that Walmart provides
    Most of that produce and other stuff costs just about the same as any other grocery store, unless its one of those **** for brains idiotic hippy organic store that retards shop at.



    its you liberals that create those food deserts by not allowing companies into the areas to eliminate the problem
    I am no liberal.

    Minimum wage should be based on regional standard of living....

    Yeah the poor are bullying a corporation that profits in the hundreds of billions.

    A career is any job a person takes pride in.

    You want a class of people to live with out dignity. That is what the fringe right are really after. They want laws that allow them to treat others as animals that don't deserve dignity.

    Walmart are exploiters and I have no sympathy for them.
