    Not the workers. They all have different situations, pay grades and family sizes. But WalMart itself (unlike Oil companies) gets what?

    I thought we were discussing Federal subsidies. There are indeed local and state subsidies by way of tax breaks and the Medicaid claim is kind of vague since apparently it is an individual choice. My source is the article you referenced.

    Most WalMart workers do not work 40 hrs per week. Managers would, but they are most likely salaried.

    I'm not sure that the majority work 32 hrs per week.

    Well I can only hope they didnt have their kids AFTER they CHOSE to work at WalMart....that is, if they live somewhere where the wage paid by WalMart isnt sufficient to support it.

    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."
    another whine about the rich thread.

    Walmart was the top charitable contributor for 3 years in a row, donating 300 million dollars a year, every year. Nothing wrong with asking their employees to donate a couple of cans of food.

    "Top" of what? Top charitable contributor on what list? Is that for private businesses? Because it doesnt cover foundations and other organizations.

    I've got a boycott list and WalMart is right there near the top. If you live in a small town, your town might have been 'Walmarted'. If not, it might soon be.
