    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...
    No, just how they do business.

    How are they any different than any other large retail business that provides goods at a price people choose to purchase? Why would you think it wise for government to single out an employer while letting places like McDonald's go unscathed. Had they simply voted to raise the minimum wage for all businesses, I wouldn't have had a problem as that would be their choice to commit economic suicide in an area with already high unemployment...

    I don't think Walmart is the only one being singled out.

    When you subsidize people you will find you subsidize business.
    You mean when you coddle business you end up subsidizing them.

    No, when you coddle consumers or business directly you end up coddling business.

    Probably, because they are the biggest abuser of public resources for their personal benefit.

    I shop at Walmart quite often, but its threats to towns both big and small grow tiring.
