I'm confused are some posters actually mad that Wal-Mart is starting a food donation for its needy employees last time I checked that was a good thing . Even if the motivation might not be so pure its still beneficial to both parties and is a good example of symbioses . Its a company not a charity its motivation is to get money not give it out since when you open a business that is the purpose to gain profit .
Guinea pigs are amazing furry creatures !!
Also on Christmas we put a tree up and hang up children's gloves, hats, and scarves to distribute. How diabolical of the company to allow that, the big boss should just distribute money so the parents can buy want they want!
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
What I don't get is how people think that Wal-mart "owe" their people something. They provide a legal, mutually agreed upon wage for services rendered. Since when is that not enough?

The problem is market forces and how, in a lowly-regulated global system, these forces compel companies to move production to the cheapest parts of the world. That's nothing but a logical competitive reaction of the company to the laws of our country. Of course this is all at the same time encouraged by our reverence for unfettered capitalism and free trade. But when the same products are made by the same amount of people for less and less, and most of the new profit goes to 4 of the richest billionaires alive, while they encourage their customers to donate back some of the money they saved to their needy workers, isn't that perverse?
You can't talk about bringing back industry at home until you resolve the laws and regulations that allow companies to move production overseas.
And I get confused on the conservative position of how much personal responsibility poor people should have? It's their fault because they didn't get a higher degree and more training? I thought Rick Santorum said it was snobby to suggest that everyone should go to college. And what about our grandparents, wasn't working in a factory good enough for them? If their factory closed and a Wal-Mart opened next door, wouldn't that be the likely place for them to have to work to get by? And why should getting a college degree necessarily make you more competitive, there's more of us every year and not enough jobs to support the educated class.

One huge business hires a team of accountants. A series of small businesses each hires one, but more accountants are hired collectively. You aren't even talking about a zero sum gain when talking Walmart. Because of the centralization and efficiency, you are talking net loss in terms of jobs.

You REALLY want to pretend that small businesses hire the same number people that large retailers like WalMart do....thats...comical. You are either spouting rhetoric (lying) which is laughable or BELIEVE it...which is...sad...
(most small businesses do not hire accountants...they contract with an accounting agency)
