    It equals itself out. If they don't pay a living wage, they don't have to work a living day.

    Perspective. By compensating employees generously to motivate and retain good workers, one-fifth of whom are unionized, Costco gets lower turnover and higher productivity than Walmart

    So, Walmart should become just like Costco - charge large annual fees. use 1/2 the staff, supply 1/10 the items and leave everything on pallets.

    Walmart's is leaving merchandise on pallets as they're way understaffed and can't get them unloaded.

    whole foods is also dependent on selling overpriced bull**** to would-be yuppies. Hardly comparable to walmart's business model and not a place many people can afford to shop

    1. It was possible to live on minimum wage up until the 1980s.

    2. It needs to vary based on the cost of living of different regions.

    Same with the people that shop there.

    And individual taxpayers take every single break they can as well...what, do people turn them down 'for the greater good?'

    Walmart is not responsible for people that TAKE their jobs yet cannot support themselves. Those people should take other jobs then. Or, is it Walmart's fault too that they cant/wont do so?
