    No; restaurants doing far fewer covers, and the tips are not only diminishing in percentage as people scrimp on "non essentials" but they're pooled to offset line cooks, dishwashers, bussers, etc, who the restaurateur needs to leverage in getting everyone down to the lower "tipped employee" minimum, not to mention it's the only way to make payroll on the slow steady march toward, "THE SPACE FOR LEASE."

    Just another beautiful day in Supply Side lalaland, where letting markets pay squat is nirvana come to earth. Yippee for the righty nincompoops and their economic studies on AM radio!!!

    None of your counter addressed the fact that Walmart has and does contribute to the decline of US manufacturing, in spite of the company's propaganda.

    Denial and avoidance mixed with ad hominem, my such declines in the quality of argument.

    That's a hell of a statement right there. What sort of contribution to the decline of US manufacturing does Wal-Mart make? Be specific.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Wal-Mart responds to economic and market trends; it does not create them, lefty propaganda notwithstanding. What Wal-Mart does do is serve downscale consumers, the sort of people rarely seen in fashionable lefty salons. That is why "progressives" so easily ignore their interests.

    I am glad you are so pleased with subsidizing their work force. On average, any county where their is a Wal-Mart; $250,000 in taxes are required to subsidize the existence of their employees. You don't think a person that works 40 hours a week is entitled to a living wage? You support the idea that Billion Dollar corporations should have their labor force subsidized by the tax paying public? Yes I expect ever employer to pay a living wage so we the tax payers don't have to. It's not about the employee. I need my lawn mowed so why don't you pay someone to come and mow it for me since your so in favor of subsidizing other people's wealth.

    I said I would not change a word. You identified precisely why Wal-Mart is able to provide unprecedented choices to downscale consumers.

    No, this is not true, the largest retailer on earth does influence manufacturing substantially as i already documented.

    You are not making fact based argument, you are relying still on rhetoric and ad hominem.

    Buying products from other countries is a good starting point.

    You know it's rather interesting to read the notes from the usual suspects.

    So, according to the Yahoo article, this is what the Walmart employee said to the customer responsible for paying her wages:

    "He pulled up to us and said, 'Hello, ladies, how are you?' And I said, 'You shouldn't leave your dog in the car, Cheney said. "He told me it was none of my business and I said that that was fine, that if I saw him do it again I would just call the police next time. He said he was no longer going to be shopping at that Wal-Mart, and I said, 'OK.

    So what we have here is an employee who just flipped the bird to a customer, and was obviously proud about it.

    Now, I have dogs, I love dogs, but really?

    As you wrote, Walmart is the one with the bad attitude?

    And there are those who don't understand their struggles through life...
