    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I am not a job creator. My customers are. Try running a business and you'd realize that pretty quickly.

    This as opposed to the government which takes money away under threat of force from working people and redistributes it in the form of government jobs which all too often create nothing more than a bureaucracy while providing little or no service to the community.
    A little dramatic, as usual. By the way, when Walmart pays crap, we as taxpayers end up subsidizing the differences in the form of SNAP, TANF, etc. Why are you supporting Walmart's taking advantage of big scary socialism?


    I disagree. Why invite this amount of abuse over a simple threat. In real life you do not make a claim like this unless you intend to carry it through.
    An attempt to influence legislation. Walmart doesn't want to pay its employees more, because that cuts into profits. Do you really not see their vested interest in blocking the legislation?


    Wages, like inventory, make-up a huge percentage of any corporations expenditures and a near 50% increase in wages is going to have a huge impact on their bottom-line. Any responsible corporation is going to have to take that into account when deciding if they are going to be able to actively and fairly compete in the local market-place because that’s what “job creators” do!
    In Walmarts case, this is not correct.

    These people jock cash registers, stock clothing and mop-up puke - they don't fly airplanes or build cars....

    We're talking about entry level jobs here not actual careers that pay employees 20+ an hour + benefits...

    I didn't respond with "not true" I responded with and implied that investing in walmart is a risk and not even worth it given walmarts minimal growth.

    A 1% quarterly return on a stock is not that good, especially when shares are $75.00 a pop.

    Federal income tax ≤ 0 for those households making less than $50k.

    Nearly 22% of those making between $50,000 and $75,000 end up with no federal income tax liability or negative liability as do 9% of households with incomes between $75,000 and $100,000....The vast majority of households making up to $30,000 fall into the category, as do nearly half of all households making between $30,000 and $40,000.
    There's a hellofa lot more to our tax structure than "the tables."

    47% of households owe no tax - and their ranks are growing - Sep. 30, 2009

    1% was the growth not the return. Walmart is still a buy.

    WalMart does not pay “crap”. They pay what the job is worth and if you’re a 36 year-old, single mother of four and the best you can do is minimum-wage then the problem isn’t with Walmart…it’s with idiot that ends-up working for minimum-wage. [/QUOTE]

    Okay, fine. Then you know how this works. Please provide the evidence to support your claims.
