    $20,000 a year for college athletes, their education, is barely above the poverty level.
    Not to mention that most student-athletes on full ride have two full-time jobs.
    Their full academic load and their full-time athletic load, both taking 40 hours each on the average.
    And many also work at a paying job through the University .

    But the thing is, neither consumers or retailers really give a **** about the retail workers in this case. At least not as much as they care about money and sales. It really is a race to the bottom but whatever, it is what it is I guess. Two years ago we opened at midnight, last year we opened at 6pm. This year we are open at 5pm and I have to be at work at 3pm on Thursday. At least this year we actually aren't open overnight, which is a plus.

Mom and pop shops have no incentive to even be open on black friday. People aren't coming there when Walmart has so many good deals.

    I can't remember the last time I went to one either.

    Yes, others will go; they won't miss me. But I feel better not patronizing them given their business practices.

    I do understand for the struggling poor among us, WalMart offers a lot of value. I just don't like how they do it. And perhaps there would be fewer struggling poor if WalMart paid a bit more
