    The findings bring into sharper relief existing evidence that average Americans are getting squeezed ever tighter, while the country's wealthiest watch their fortunes explode. In 2010, the annual median wage fell to $26,364, its lowest level since 1999, according to a separate study. The decline in wages may have, in part, contributed to growing wealth inequality, resulting in a member of the 1 percent's worth equaling 288 times that of the median U.S. household, the Economic Policy Institute found in a report released in September.

    Many are on the dole WITH them, and Wal-Mart counts on that. The tax payers are subsidizing Wal-Mart's work force whether we like it or not. I would rather Wal-Mart pay them enough so we didn’t have to do that.

    Actually, in a perfect world I would like Wal-Mart to stop going into communities putting smaller, better paying establishments out of business. Wal-Mart has perfected the art of converting decent paying jobs in communities into low paying jobs. And we happily say “more please”.

    As a micro-businessman, nobody despises Walmart more than I do for taking away the Ma and Pa world I grew up in. But Americans woukd rather buy from giant corporations and won't pay a penny more to support local business (although many claim otherwise they are full of poop).

    The reason Walmart incomes get subsidized is that the poor breed like rabbits and we (USG) support those rug-rats. If you get a job at Walmart and you are single, you can easily live on that income. Share with another single and you won't need or get aid. It only takes $950 a month to cut off the whole Medicaid and food stamp thing. Its the children that affect this. Should we pay Walmart workers double or triple because they had kids?

    I just don't think its realistic. Walmart surely pays above minimum wage. I feel silly defending them but I just think they are being fair enough and a real asset. If they start paying $17.00 an hour, they could and would hire sharper people and their ex-employees will be 100% on the dole.

    WalMart is exactly what our parents and grandparents wanted. BTW: Anybody care to define what a 'livable' wage is or what the minimum wage should be?
