Interesting timing with the wage & benefit increase for Walmart.
I'm not sad to see Sams club go, I think it might be one of the most depressing stores out there. Once I went to Costco I never looked back!

Yea I am thinking Costco may be winning the bulk sales war and the profit margins aren't favorable to Wal-Mart. These things happen in business...anyone know if Costco is giving back to their employees after the tax legislation?

Its what you Americans know, but it may be a time for a change! See: theweek.com...
Very interesting article. I read it this morning about the same time I saw a story to the effect that the Hep A outbreak spread to Utah and that's come from the homeless population in San Diego according to One America News. What with all the technological changes, automation, etc., eliminating jobs, my guess is that the US will have to adopt a different social-economic model. As things stand now, its pretty ridiculous. In our area, the Flu outbreak is nearing epidemic proportions and they ran out of the vaccine 3 months ago. You combine an epidemic with increasing poverty and homelessness and you gotta disaster!
