Most skilled trades could barely/not afford to live in Manhattan or many parts of San Fran or other major cities - but you are saying that a minimum wage worker should be able to?
Come on now.
Obviously, if you live in those areas and the best job you can get is at Walmart - then you are going to have to live outside of that area.
The point is that working at Walmart can provide you with a living wage in most regions of the lower 48.
And that is totally besides my point anyway - which is that Walmart has ZERO moral obligation to provide a 'living wage' to anyone in it's employ. And NO well-respected international organization (that I am aware of), like the UN, disagrees.
You and others have this utopian fantasy that a place you work for owes you a living - which is not backed up by ANY well-respected, international organization (that I am aware of - like the UN) or even the definition of the word 'job'.
Then when I show that Walmart does in fact provide a living wage for most areas of America - then you infer that it has to apply to wealthy neighbourhoods with $1700 rents as well.
Clearly, there is no reasoning with you on this subject - so I will not waste any further energy trying.
Have a nice day.
