    What is your basis for determining how much an employee should earn? If they earn $20,000, why not $22,000? If they earn $75,000, why not $77,000? Admit it, you have no criteria, only sentiment.

    This is just changing the subject. If you want to talk about the minimum wage, don't respond to subsidy comments. The point was that if anyone doesn't like corporate welfare, they shouldn't be going after the companies for taking it, they should be going after the government for providing it.

    My evidence is the Right and GOP which have been hell bent on removing the US from the 1st level tier of nations. Not that I'm giving the Dems a pass here, as their warm, fuzzy rhetoric about "compromise", "people of faith" , and more "compromise" has essentially made them the doormat of the people who are taking us all on this wild and crazy ride back to the High Dark Ages.........................

    Stop voting in people that want to subsidize them then.

    While the Democrats are hamstringing the successful in favor of the hopeless while creating a permanent poverty class.

    Besides, the average Walmart wage is already well above minimum wage.

    A good chunk of their employees are college students, secondary incomers and the terminally unskilled.
