    Is Walmart breaking the law?

    Does Walmart force people to work for them or shop in their stores?

    Do you give all your extra income to charity?

    Name one business in competition with Walmart that pays their employees better for doing the same job. Unless it's hyperbole, this should be easy for you.

    So, assuming you're correct, you have two people to blame:

    1. You can blame the full time employee settling for $25,000 in yearly income because they didn't complete their education or didn't take seriously their education and now they have no skills or skills that are unattractive and of low value to the people who hire.

    2. You can blame Obama and his administration for not developing/encouraging an economic environment where highly skilled and educated citizens can get and keep jobs that match those skills and that education.

    Again, you can't blame Walmart because they don't force people to work in their stores and they don't force people to shop there. In your view, Walmart is responsible for correcting the bad life choices of their employees and the bad economic policies of the government. They're not. Walmart has no trouble finding employees at the wages they pay. If you want them to pay more, it will require them having more competition for their employees - simple as that.

    Really? Thank goodness those people are employed so those associates don't have to get on food stamps.

    What cracks me up with some people that see nothing wrong with what Walmart is doing would probably go berserk if you wished them "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas."

    I'm not really seeing what the issue is here. If someone have 15 kids and is trying to support them while working at Walmart, is that really Walmart fault? It's not really walmart's place as an employer to address the various issues of every employee and it's not like the skills needed to work at walmart are the most demanding.

    So if you have a point you are trying to make about the general wage they employ, you could likely find better ways to do that

    I sure hope you're going to push for higher wages for those papermill workers considering all the extra work they're going to have to put in to supply the treasury. And don't forget the ink manufacturers too.

    All beside the point. Those financial instruments the financial institutions used didn't break the law either and yet it caused a hazard to the entire economy.

    No, it's the entitlement mentality of businesses like Walmart. Most people don't want to be poor and live off the government which goes against everything certain people around believe.
