    Are you claiming they cannot use government to force the business to pay a certain wage, or that they can. Which is it? It appears to be the can, and are certainly trying.


    So using money to influence government is good, or bad, or neither? If it's bad, two wrongs don't make a right.
    Its all politics baby. Both sides are dirty.

    For years, Wal-Mart—and other large retail operators—have been piling up huge profits by controlling their labor costs through paying employees sub-poverty level wages. As a result, it has long been left to the taxpayer to provide healthcare and other subsidized benefits to the many Wal-Mart employees who are dependent on Medicaid, food stamp programs and subsidized housing in order to keep their families from going under.
    Why pay your workers part of the profit when taxpayers can pick up the cost

    Just another side effect of welfare that no one ever wants to talk about.

    When you subsidize people you will find you subsidize business.

    Walmart ranks near the bottom in profit per employee when compared to other major corporations...

    It was more interesting than listening to the convoluted definition of what "is" is, though....

    And, what would that be? Big box multinationals can manipulate the system to their profit/benefit?

    They are also the world's largest employer...

    I never stated anything to the contrary, but when you do look at profit per employee, it gives you some perspective into how raising wages would affect their bottom line...

    You're subsidizing buying power and service availability.
