    They are just deflecting and distracting.

    I don't know who she voted for or if she voted. If she said so somewhere I haven't seen it.

    What is clear is that those who are defending her are Obama haters.

Fact is Walmart is moving away from full time workers, past part-time workers and hiring temp or contract workers as they get ZERO benefits and depending on the method of filing, zero unemployment compensation when they are let go- a process called churning. since you brought up the youth unemployment rate, just how many workers at Walmart are 'youth'?

    Now about the hamburger BS... Walmart is like the rich guy handing his workers 3 hamburgers for the week knowing full well the taxpayer- something Walmart has a very sketchy past with- will keep the worker fed, clothed and medically taken care of. In a way Walmart is the wave of our future, corporations de-facto making the government responsible for the worker's well being.

    Walmart has already gone to all the places, and left a wake of crashed small businesses for miles around each store here in Oklahoma, DC is the last frontier, I guess like farming marginal land, all the other places are under plow. I can see them having an 'Alexander the Great' moment. How far into the wilderness can you go? How much land area do you have to occupy? When is big, big enough?

    The question to ask is will Walmart bring in NEW jobs or displace workers and small business owners for a net loss? Walmart isn't Mercedes, USA. Nor is it Beretta USA- Walmart doesn't build anything, it doesn't provide anything new to the consumer- just more of the same at cheaper prices. People were getting their TVs, T-Shirts, Jeans, and groceries someplace before Walmart showed up. Those places employ people, have owners, pay property taxes. Given what I've seen of Walmart's coming to rural America, I'd say it isn't a win-win for any area.
    like i posted before there is a 50% youth unemployment rate in DC. why don't we ask them if they want a job at 8.50 an hour they dont need a condescending ideologue Prog from Oklahoma like you to make decisions for them. they have their own voice they don't need you to hold their hand and decide what you think is best for them

    Why not ask a starving child if he would like to eat old raw chicken. Its calories and he is free to say yes or no.

    At 8.50 an hour the slack will have to be taken up by the public if one desires semi healthy feed workforce

    So I've been mislead all this time? Walmart is trumpeted by everyone as cheaper than anything else.

    It doesn't work that way, to increase the amount of money first and then wait for demand to follow.

    It's not " enlightenment" to argue for mandated wage increases by whatever method and pretend that it's being done in a vacuum.

    It worked that way for Henry Ford. He paid enough so his employees could afford to buy and it worked.
