    Well there so called successful business is causing societal problems.

    Walmart should pay it's employees decent wages, it is ridiculous that some workers partially qualify for state welfare programs because of the poor pay at Walmart.

    From what I have so far read, it would be a blessing for towns if Walmart does not open it's doors there. Let one of their competitors open their stores, much healthier for the employees and it would teach Walmart that blackmailing your government will not work.

    The wage stagnation (if not decline) over the last 30 years is a disincentive to the people to work . I shouldn't have to verbalize that to the adults here..........................

    I'd say the opposite is true. Their business is answering needs society has created.

    Actually, everything was. Even stuff you're thinking, or may think in the future: patently absurd.

    Tip: Costco sales per employee is about on par. They have over 180,000 employees, and are growing, despite Sam's Club shrinking employment now down to around100,000. What Costco gets in return, is lower turnover, which saves them in training cost, and increases worker efficiency.

    With higher unit manufacturing cost, which translates to far higher end-user prices, reducing unit sales volume. That help?

    Jesus dude, not in a protected market, you removed the context of our conversation.

    I know how contanerized shipping has totally changed the economics of imported products.

    Either stay within the context of our conversation or ignore me.

    My what a novel concept: grow the market, and businesses thrive. Whoda thunk?
    Unemployment actually 4.3-4.4% according to latest data I can find. Not quite as good as North Dakota, but obviously better than average. If everyone had King County's business base then we'd be having a different (and happier) conversation.

    The need for more public state subsidies so the public can buy cheap goods imported from China. Nice business model but hardly ethical.

    Um, society did not create the US (declining) manufacturing and consumer market, corporations are in near total control of all aspects, from creation to sales.
