    when will we learn that increasing the cost of hiring Americans is just a way to shift wealth from poor Americans to poor illegal immigrants?
    Apart from the Jobs lost once the store is open, how many Jobs will be lost from not building the stores in the first place?

    How many millions of dollars will not be spent on building materials?

    I thought the economy needed Jobs and business. I guess not.

    When will those pushing a "living minimum wage" understand implementation will restrict job growth and create more unemployment, not create jobs. (Like it or not)

    In other words, it will do much more harm than good to those you want the government, i. e. taxpayers, to care for.
    Plus nobody can define that term.

    Let's be clearabout the kind of people that are "fleeing" Mexico.

    They are the losers that can't do anything for themselves, and it is much easier to not do anything in the US than Mexico.

    You don't see doctors, lawyers, or engineers leaving Mexico do you?

    Don't use the losers as representatives of the Mexican population just like you shouldn't use a crack whore as a representative of the US population.

    Really? Whois standard of living?

    A mn with 3 kids and a mortage or a 19 year old living with his parents?

    I can tell you if I, as a bsiness owner, had to pay a living wage to my employee, depending on hisw circumstance, I woud only hire single people that didn't have much to pay every month. Nobody else would be able to get a job with me.

    An article that mentions nothing of wages and isolated instances of stupidity. Hardly a condemnation of WalMart as a whole.

    I just see Wal-Mart workers as the discriminated group de jour. We only hear people talking about this that don't work there.

    We don't hear large groups of the employees saying anything anywhere about this situation.

    How many posters on this board work at Wal-Mart or have worked at Wal-Mart?

    I would see a situation like that as kidnapping and that is a legal matter.

    Here where I am the manager of the store told her employee to use a floor cleaner that had an internal combustión engine while customers were present.

    I got a hedache from it.

    I found her and yelled at her about it.

    She looked stunned I said anything.

    That does not show anything about Wal-Mart itself, just a stupid manager.

    Walmart says it will cancel its plans to build three new stores in D.C. if local lawmakers approve a bill that would force the retailer to pay its employees at least $12.50 an hour.

    Alex Barron, a regional general manager for Walmart U.S., writes in an op-ed published in the Washington Post Tuesday that the company feels the D.C. Council's proposed "living wage" legislation “would clearly inject unforeseen costs into the equation that will create an uneven playing field and challenge the fiscal health of our planned D.C. stores.”


    Walmart currently has three other new stores under construction in the area, and Barron says those stores will also be jeopardized if the bill passes.

    I just realized...maybe if we can get minimum wage increases in ALL 50 states Wal-Mart will close all their stores here, move to China, and sell the Chinese all the cheap crap they manufacture back to them. Ya think?
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
