This just in: Walmart, depressing as it is, would be an EVEN MORE depressing place to work if taxpayers weren't subsidizing the low, low wages paid to Walmart employees. Yes, that's right! You, me, and all the other taxpayers in the room are subsidizing the wages of Walmart workers. It's almost like we are shareholders, except we reap no financial benefits (indirectly or otherwise) and exert no real control over its board of directors, prices, management, or day-to-day operations (indirectly or otherwise). Isn't that a nice arrangement?
I&#039;m doing the Venn diagram, and Mitt&#039;s 47% seems to overlap just a bit with Wal-Mart&#039;s 60%.
Some people named Walton, on the other hand, seem to fit into Mitt&#039;s 0.01%
Charles Dickens wrote some great biz school case studies . . . you need to learn from them.
Walmart - where else would the proudly ignorant shop?
You won&#039;t find 5-gallon buckets of Cheetos at a better price, anywhere. And Pepsi, at <a href="http:\/\/thekrazycouponlady.com\/2012\/09\/30\/pepsi-2-liter-only-0-50-at-walmart\/" target="_blank">50 cents for two liters</a>, is <i>way</i> cheaper than that milk that the elitist liebruls buy!

Making people poor is a great way to build up a Wal-Mart customer base.
I wonder what fraction of Wal-Mart&#039;s revenue is handed directly to them by the recipients of federal and state poverty-relief programs. (Or, in Wal-Speak, &quot;people building better lives for themselves and their families.&quot;)
which is why they didn&#039;t quote it
I think Walmart might benefit if its executives were &quot;cared&quot; for by badgers.
Smells like . . . profit.
The best part of this deal is that all the LIVs LOVE them some Wally World because- low prices and they HATE Uncle Sam because- high taxes. It&#039;s a win-win for the plutocrat class...
Everyday low ethics.
<i>&ldquo;Every month more than 60 percent of Americans shop at Walmart and we are proud to help them save money on what they want and need to build better lives for themselves and their families. &quot;</i>
Yes, all Americans can benefit from this brilliant scheme -- all you have to do is shop at Wal-Mart. Get with the program, people!
NYC &quot;street fairs&quot;. You get the definite impression that the person selling you the goods personally rooted them out of a shipping container that very morning.
