    Median Net Worth In 2010 At Lowest Level Since 1969: R [W:28]

    Just one of the many reasons and evidence I will continue to fight the fight my friend turtledude....for the working class and the underpaid working class and the underemployed working class...

    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.

    so your solution is to take from those who earn wealth to enrich the pimps in government? LOL you are being played.

    if dem class warriors were actually poor you might have a point. But many of them are uber wealthy and use people like you as pawns in their schemes.

    Food stamps are up, who pays for that? the middle class

    Disability claims up- who pays for that? the middle class

    Unemployment up - hurts the middle class


    Apparently you are failing to see who is leading this country into that hole.

    Walmart cant raises their prices much...who the hell would go there a put up with lines and crap...every walmart im in have less than half their checkout lanes open and the lines are backed up everywhere...ask an employee why and the answer is most always the same...they cut back hours or they arent hiring...theres not enough of us....ever walk around walmart...The shut the freakin lights off...in cycles half the stores lights are off half are on...if you walk from the lighted half to the unlighted old people cant see well...then your either sweating or freezin in the store...personally I think walmart sucks and I go there rarely.

    That is you and that may be fine for you but some of us can't afford " better " or for them just to raise prices so a union due and union bureaucrat can be paid. I go to Wal Mart at 6 to 6:30 am and never have lines, but I do get delayed at the ammo counter when I've saved a little to buy some extra.

    Calgun your argument stinks man...walmart giving more to thier employees is not raising anything through the roof...walmart isnt that cheap anyway...anything you buy in walmart you can get somewhere else and online...we dont NEED WALMART neither do the poor any more than anything else or any other stores...

    You are woefully mistaken. I shop hard for good deals because I'm pretty limited in my resources. My 24x7 Wal Mart has some food items only Costco can compete with and few others. Most of my clothing is Wal Mart now and it holds up quite well and has cost me much less than other stores products in years past.

    You are demanding Wal mart raise prices for the good of a few at the cost of many. A polar opposite to your soak the rich taxing philosophy.

    Walmart is the biggest employer in America and a majority of the people they hire would have a hard time getting work elsewhere due to not being very sharp pencils. So, they are the employer of last resort for over 2 million people who would be on the dole without them.

    I think Walmart pays around $10 per hour, not a living wage but not useless either. Combine 2 Walmart workers and you can lead a decent low-middle class life. If I would exempt anybody, I would exempt Walmart. And no, I don't shop there. I'm to old to buy ANYTHING let alone need something I can't get for less on the internet. But Walmart is the jobs and a place for the poor to shop.
