Ok so walmart does not pay its employees enough even for basic food and shelter.


The US government doesn't pay their military enough.

Is that corporate welfare ?

maybe other people just need money more than you do; maybe they've always been poor to the point where survival instincts kick in over morality.

How is it hatred?

I would shop and invest in walmart if they were not tax cheats. But becasue I stick my head in the sand doesn't mean they are suddenly OK.

The business practices are tuned to exploit workers, communities and taxpayers. They take something like snap that is designed to temp help someone eat and turn it into a way of life.

Are you OK with that?

Walmart gets nothing everyone else don't get.

Everyone gets tax breaks.

The military has nothing to do with this. Try to stick to the thread.

Is stealing form a dishonest person (corp) morally bad?

Yes.

The social services were never intended to be exploited by a multi billion $$$ corp. This is not a tax break, it is exploitation for profit.

There are a lot of military families using the same programs you accuse Wal-Mart of abusing. That is a valid question.

Sure it does.

The low wages US servicemen get puts them on government assistance.

Welfare as someone called it.

But that supposedly isn't corporate welfare when it is.

This entire 'argument' is ludicrous to begin with.

Because the entire beef with big business is a group is upset that another group can't go out and buy more corporate products. IE STUFF.

Now when the latter group uses the force of the state to take from one group to give to another group ALL so they can go out and buy more stuff is WHAT ?

Corporate WELFARE.

I was applying what you said to this situation only, which, now that I re-read what you wrote, looks like it might have been a general blanket statement. To which end, I take back what I said.

With all the SHORT memories................................. I do recall seeing a newscast and pictures of Hurricane Katrina and the aftermath, with the Highway to New Orleans filled in one entire lane ....... as far back as you could see..... with WALMART trucks loaded with Relief Goods for the displaced peoples . Dozens and dozens and even more dozens of dozens of Walmart Trucks. ALL AID, ALL FREE........

Now lets hear your excuses to hate Walmart. After all, you have made them what they are. Supply and demand.
Still, some will take the money and run.

I've been under-charged in cafes and returned later with the change. Only the other night, I questioned the price in a supermarket thinking it was too low. I blame my parents for instilling knee-jerk honesty!

Still, I cant see upsides to criminalising people for exploiting a fault in Walmart's systems. They should learn their lessons, re-train the staff and stop it happening again. Looks to me like a failure of the manager. S/he wants to waste police time, invite bad PR and evidently has poorly trained staff or lack of oversight.

I hate walmart as much as anyone, and I rarely(once a year) go there.

However, it's still wrong and the right thing to do would be to inform someone and get my proper amount due.

I realize that's is a rare opinion, and that most can't fathom having that level of principal. Even when it's in favor of something/one so undeserving of that "respect".

At the end of the day though, it's about me, knowing I'M IN THE RIGHT and that I've done the right thing. Knowing that I can't be labeled a hypocrite or ever be knocked down due to saying one thing and doing another.


I admire you, I really do. But it seems most people aren't that way.

When I was a mgr I had to give out tests to potential candidates and one of the questions on that test was "if you found a $20 bill would you turn it in to police?" If you said 'yes' then the test thinks you're lying and it goes against you. In real life, most people would keep the money. It stinks, but that's how it is.

Let that be a tip for you in case you apply for a retail job.
