I will post a few info-graphics in this thread with links below where they came from, but instead of sharing my thoughts and trying to come up with conclusions why this is so and force them on anyone, I am asking members to provide their reasons and explanations.


The first is the graphic of all the largest employers, state by state. Right click and view image to see the larger version.
Walmart Nation - Visual Capitalist


The next image is the measured levels of poverty, state by state. Notice how much the poor states line up with the states where Walmart is the largest employer.
Visualizing Poverty - Visual Capitalist


And the final image is the breakdown of the states politically, Republican and Democrat.
Red and Blue States - Wikipedia


Why are the Republican states the poorest states and why is Walmart so strong in those states and the largest employer across the Red nation? Compare the last image to the first one and notice how nicely it lines up.

Why is this so?

Walmart is also the employer that is known to have expected their employees to get on state and federal aid, in order to supplement the low pay. Why are the Red states allowing such behavior and allowing the largest employer to milk the states like that for welfare and aid?

I was a young lady. I will never forget going to Walmart for the first time. I remember all the tags that said Made In America. Before that point a lot of stuff was made in Taiwan (I don't remember anything being made in China)
We were so happy to be shopping at such a nice clean store filled to the brim with American Made products.

No that wasn't a dream, that was reality folks. Sam Walton is rolling in his grave at what Walmart has become.

If all of the liberal states are so for helping the poor why are they the most expensive places to live in the whole country?

Wal-Mart is a huge company. They sell a lot of cheap stuff which makes them popular among lower income brackets. It makes sense that the graphics line up with Wal-Mart being large in certain states that are also poor. The next thing I know, you are going to point out something insightful like casinos employ a lot of people in Vegas. Whowuddathunk?

What I find interesting is that in so many states the University systems are the largest employers.

Well, it's not a conspiracy if it's real. Just look at the images.


But why is that so? Why are the Republican states so poor? And why does Walmart do so well in those states?

make it a Republican or Democrat issue is ridiculous they are both bought out by the same corporate interest. the left right narrative you are beind sold (and pushing in this thread) are BULL****. behind the scenes they all work together to achieve the same goals

local government may differ such as city council and or mayor but that's about as much control as we exert

Well, the info-graphic says MGM is the largest employer in Nevada, so you're dead on with that one.


You bring up lower income bracket people in Walmart states... why are the Red states low income bracket states? That was my original question too. If you come up with an answer, let us know too.

Based on the threads I've seen from you over the past few weeks, and then the two posts in this thread you attempted to make, I can only think you started drinking way earlier today.

What happened? You usually make decent threads.

Supply and demand.

When everyone wants to live somewhere because it's nicer, the demand brings the prices up.

Gee, I don't know... maybe it has something to do with a hollowed out manufacturing core along with the primary industries being agriculture in many states.

Yeah I remember that as well. I think that push was in the 90's or there abouts. It seemed that Taiwan took over for things being made in Japan and now China has taken over for Taiwan (China will say Taiwan IS china, lol).

I wonder if the "american made" stuff at walmart was actually made in an "american trade zone" in Taiwan, so it could be labeled as American Made. Kind of like Hong Kong being British until 1999. I wouldn't put it past our elected officials nor corperations to pull stuff like that and trick the consumers into paying higher prices for the $.0001 label.

Being Chicago seems to be included, I am going to guess that it has nothing to do with Dems vs Repubs. Putting that aside...not everything is politics.

I would look at the geographical cultural and social differences as a more likely aspect for Walmart popularity. Perhaps, the residents have differences in priorities? Socially and economically?

It is fun to look at colored map images, but the reality is that these really are not accurate in determining realities. Large populated cities and areas can create disinformation regarding differences. More rural folks who have to travel a distance to shop, would love the convenience of one stop shopping.

Walmart actually tapped into that need and marketed it well. They started out putting their stores in locations more rural or the outskirts of cities. It was easy commute, easy in and out!

Socially, I believe the difference is that Walmart does best in regions who are more independent and not as interested in buying 'name brand' to be considered 'in crowd' mentality and socially. The customers are too busy working and other to want to waste a whole day driving further to go to a mall or store to store.

What do you think?

I shop at Walmart all the time, I personally don't measure my worth with how much money I make or where I shop. I'm sure most people would put their finances before their politics, I would hope so at least.
