Actually, what is happening is that tax payers are subsidizing big business by topping up the paltry wages they pay or by giving an income to those who should be employed, but aren't because these companies move their factories to places where life is even cheaper. So its more of a corporate society than a socialist one.

Lowest paying retail outlet financials, keep in mind these figures are in millions... i know GROSS profit may not reflect the bottom line on paper, because they find other crap they scratch off, but it makes me sick that these VERY VERY profitable companies employ vast amounts of people and cant even PAY THEM A DECENT SALARY @!#!!@@! AND WE SHOP AT THESE STORES SO THEY CAN BUY MORE CRAP FROM CHINA AND KILL THE MIDDLE CLASS!!!!!!

just a f.y.i.... that crispy new martin luther king jr statue in DC was made in china. enjoy.
