    I needed the sweat pants in a hurry and didn't have time to shop around. I was frankly appalled that they weren't paying me to take the garbage away......................

    The minimum wage is there to protect people from being exploited by big corporations (and small ones alike for that matter).

Also, they carry the margin model over to stuff typical grocery stores sell at much higher margins, namely produce and meat.

    The membership fees merely supports the image (smoke screen) of being a wholesaler, thus justifying why they buy at a lower price than Kroger's etc, from the same producers (Nabisco, etc.)

    So what you believe, based on nothing but your biased guesses, is quite wrong to an extent bordering on the wrong side of ABSURD!!!
    Not sure why you would claim that since, again, I agree with your post.

    I thrive on conflict and not being a part of the mutual admiration society. More interesting that way.

    Who should make the decision of whether or not Wal*Mart's wage offer is "reasonable"? You, or the person on the receiving end of the offer?

    BTW, from what I understand, many of the retiree/greeters take the job because they enjoy it.

    Let me get this, you studied this very subject....yet you keep asking me for the companies that produced below cost.....and when they gained sufficient market share....became profitable?

    Seriously?

    I don't believe a word you write.
