I don't usually post more than once in a day, but this information from Frugal Dad blew me away and I had to share it!

Sad, but it's the shoppers that have made Walmart what it is. In my eyes, Walmart shoppers are advocates of low pay and lower benefits, so they should never complain about their own salaries or benefits or lack of benefits. The equality of the economy rests squarely on our own shoulders.

Didn't know!
I agree with the comment made by Clipped Wings, btw.

I also agree with Clipped wings...except when I can't afford to food shop any place else because I'm unemployed and not of my own choosing. We have to eat and use toilet paper and Wal-Mart sells it cheaper than any place else in my city. When I can afford to buy groceries at a regular chain, then I'll try to be more conscious on the equality of the economy. Sorry.

Clipped: Very True.

Rosaria: Neither did I!

Terri: I'm with you...gotta do what you can afford.

I think of Walmart as the epitome of evil, but you've shared some numbers to give that specificity. I especially love (not!) the disparity between the CEO's pay and that of the workers.

We have to, have to, HAVE TO repeal NAFTA!!!! This is why Walmart is what it is today. Clinton really screwed our country over when this was passed - and no one listened then or now!!!

All the more reason to avoid shopping at WalMart. Since I haven't any children to put ahead of myself, I would rather do without than support this behemoth.

Kristy said...

Wow, that's crazy! I got the planner and love it. Thanks so much!

Eva Gallant said...

jayne: it really is!

Karen: exactly!
