    So not hyperbole.

    All the more reason to pass it.

    Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out of town.

    i will use the favorite pro abortion argument "if you don't want abortion done have one"

    If you don't like Walmart wages don't work there
    If you don't like Walmart don't shop there

    And if Walmart pouts and decides to stay away, it's a goooood thing.....

    But that still doesn't change the fact that Walmart isn't a job creator, just a job exchanger and a small business killer. A poor neighbor in most neighborhoods, temp jobs for permanent ones and and end to most Main Street stores....

    It worked because of the increased efficiencies of assembly line manufacturing, not because of what he paid the employees.

    I must say, I love Wal*Mart. A great American success story. Worth billions. Selling at low prices so that people can afford products that they wouldn't otherwise be able to afford. Supporing the military. Employing people that would otherwise not be able to find a job, thus lowering the cost to tax payers.

    And my favorite thing is a Wal*Mart thread on a message board, the most entertaining thread there is. Brings out all the backward, hateful, low intelligence arguments by the left. Such great laughs, and proof of how wrong "they" are.

    On the contrary. The alternative to a lower minimum wage is not necessarily a higher minimum wage, but rather unemployment and no wage. If your labor does not return greater value added than the cost of hiring, training, and maintaining you as an employee, then you will remain unhired and effectively unhireable.

    I say call their bluff and do it! Wal-mart will make up for it when the company shows the employees how to get food stamps while they take the time off their taxes for showing gainfully employed people how that is done.

    this seemingly assumes that the measure actually addresses the underlying problems you cited above ...

    The single mom, who lives in Pennsylvania, with two children (ages 1 and 4) that enrolls their children in Star-4 childcare center. What exactly is a Star-4 childcare center? The Office of Child Development and Early Learning give these facilities the highest rating attainable. As the chart (not clearly) depicts, child care benefits are between $12,000 and $14,000. Given that the average cost of childcare for a high end Star-4 center, given ages 1 and 4, can exceed $12,000 per year per child (if they even make it off the waiting list) while the mothers out-of-pocket expense is likely to be double that of the disbursed benefits. Conveniently, child care expenses make up roughly 40% of the total cost of welfare benefits received according to the AEI graphic.

    And still, there is no way to validate the data other than to take Mr. Alexanders presentation to the AEI word for it.
    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.
