    Re: Walmart says it will kill plans to build 3 new stores if DC wage bill passes

    quick read and I see that the CostCo to Walmart comparison has come up.

    Here's a bit more

    Walmart vs. Costco: How Do They Really Compare?

    So how do the country's two biggest retailers really fare head-to-head? Check out the breakdown below.
    Average Cashier Salary
    Walmart: $8.53 [Glassdoor]
    Costco: $15.60 [Glassdoor]

    Average Pay For Low-Level Managerial Position
    Walmart: $44,774 [Glassdoor]
    Costco: $53,956 [Glassdoor]

    Number Of Employees Receiving Health Insurance Coverage
    Walmart: "more than half" of employees [Businessweek]
    Costco: 88% of employees [Businessweek]


    The 'fun' difference is down towards the bottom of the linked article
    Most Recent Quarterly Year Over Year Earnings
    Walmart: Up 1.1% [Wall Street Journal]
    Costco: Up 19% [NBC News]

    Exactly if Walmart doesn't want to pay the min wage they don't have to. No one is forcing them to.

    I'm always skeptical of these non-academic surveys, given how minor details could have a huge effect on the comparison. One that immediately jumps to mind is where stores are located and the total number s of stores. Clearly walmart has a higher number of stores, and from my experience cost co is still limited to certain markets and seemingly completely absent from rural america.

    These will generally have huge effects on how much one pays their employees on average

    Wait!? Are you saying you were stating how each company treats its employees as a factual statement without any firsthand experience? That's "making **** up", you know.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Am I missing something? Isn't that the entire topic here..being forced to pay a (uniquely high) minimum wage.

    You'll note that your opinion on how bad Wal-mart treats its employees is not substantiated by those articles and that without firsthand experience, you're doing nothing but talking out your ass to make factual remarks about those respective corporations' working conditions. So I assumed you must have worked for them instead of assuming that you were talking out your ass. But I stand corrected.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
