    I own a clinical practice that employees teams of therapists and psychologists as well as business and family rentals. So...yeah...I do. And your pathetic insults make for lousy arguments.

    WalMart has given them a job. That particular WalMart seeks donations to assist particular individuals.

    Those donations you make...you get you arent contributing to the cause but rather to that business entity's charitable tax write-offs...right?

    Walmart is far from the only user of low wage workers, it is simply the largest.

    Lousy arguments? You mean like this fantasy of yours that a finite system somehow isn't?

    Actually it's more about a company asking others to to chip in because they pay their employees horrible salaries. They could actually of spent less buying back stock last year and paid their employees pretty much double minimum wage.

    Of course. All companies that pay low wage labor benefit from social safety nets. WalMart is as you say the largest so the biggest target/beneficiary.
