    You CAN take in a advertisement from a competitor with a lower price, and WallMart will match it, as will any number of big box stores.

    and how much "slack" will need to be taken up for someone who makes 0 per hour?

    The exact same amount.

    So again no answer just more vague questions...

    They also don't need condescending 'conservatives' who think peeing off the balcony is trickle down at it's finest!

    Now about your typical partisan shift in the discussion- I never said I'd make their decisions- typical evade the discussion and muddy the waters with BS 'conservative' loony tune talking points....

    I did point out there is a grave doubt to any claim of Walmart providing a NET GAIN in jobs and those jobs Walmart would provide will be temp work with no benefits with the taxpayer picking up the slack when the 3 hamburgers run out of little Timmy has the flu. Walmart will be displacing the places where the people shop, causing small businesses to lose customers and have to shed jobs, and if the Oklahoma pattern is the example- those small businesses will close causing further neighborhood blight- not progress.

    Something that seems to evade some 'conservative' 'job creator' worshipers- if the new place of employment causes other businesses to close that isn't a win. If the new place of employment churns temp workers through, evading unemployment, and paying wages so low the worker qualifies for government assistance it isn't a win.

    Probably about the same. I wonder why though why a business can piggy back these costs on to the public dime. Seems to me it is a failure of the private sector.

    Unethical profiteer? Hyperbole much?

    Perhaps it would be best for those who hate to get back to standing by the mailbox, and let those who understand the concept of stepping stone and contribution greater opportunity to get on with their life objectives
    If you are working for walmart then you are still standing by the mailbox.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. 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"

    And put a lot of smaller family owned shops out of business. I ain't losing any sleep over this one. I bet plenty of independent store owners that have been a part of the community for a long time are happy about it.
