Well, if the stores aren't already open, it just means they are able to function with fewer stores. I'm always amazed at how many of the damn things are built. Shopping, shopping, shopping 24/7.
So the conflict really is that Walmart wants more locations, they have to staff those locations and it violates their policies to start everyone at $12.50. As I said much earlier, Walmart hires people who would have a tough time getting work elsewhere and that is a positive for the metropolis. As another poster pointed out, this is discriminatory in nature and that makes very little sense in terms of logic. I don't have a cat in this race but it seems self-destructive.
