The numbers don't fit. The number of walmart employees and the billions you talk about dont add up. Their billions come from their customers. They save very well by cutting corners. And if you are willing to work for me for minimum wage, then its all your choice.... Or create a product so you can put it on their shelves... I do agree they wield a big stick, but people you are so much in control you don't realize it. Stop entering walmart stores. Read up on similar stores that have a better employee/employer relationship if that is your premise.. It really is that simple..
Begging hands and bleeding hearts will only cry out for more. Step up to *your* own individual plate and swing away.edit on 6-1-2013 by syrinx2112 because: (no reason given)

How to stop shopping at walmart? Easy, it's called protectionism.
Suddenly the cheap Chinese crap costs the same as American manufacturing.
Get the gist?

Stop whining. Walmart learned how to dick people over and others failed. Now this woman can sit on her money and do what all the welfare people do. sit on their butts while the rest of us work.

Since she didn't actually make that money should we beat her up and take it so we can pass it to the poor? BTW most that work at Wal-Mart like that company very much . We can split it with 100 million families and send each family 2100 dollars, boy that will fix it all.

Nice small minded propaganda, but no dice. The US came to its economic prominence and bounty while plenty of Industrialists were extremely rich and tax revenue was minimal for all. America is severely broken because the centrally controlled education system and corporate controlled media pedal these class warfare fantasies.
Also because a massive decrease in standards of acceptability, much less excellence, has created a mindless, easily manipulated generation which is convinced it is entitled to things it did not earn.
The mindless herd has accepted the fact that it will have no freedom as long as it is given table scraps by a tyrannical federal government, presumably protected by it but actually controlled and brutalized (for your own good). This is to be funded by the last of the actual earners and through massive unsustainable debt. What happens when everyone is a dependent as the middle class disappears to this idiocy? Or the debt comes due (as in Europe)?Guess we'll find out!
Why America is broken?
Dependence is celebrated over self reliance.
Central control by elites is celebrated over local control by citizens ("The people" is a fantasy term created to make the small minded celebrate their own slavery).
Unearned Entitlement is celebrated over hard work and success
Blaming big bad rich people or a meanie society is celebrated over personal responsibility.
It has nothing to do with Wal-Mart.

I hate it when I come across these types of threads and I get the "capitalism is bad" argument thrown around. First off, it isn't "capitalism", you are looking at cronyism - secondly, if you hate the practices of Walmart, DON'T SHOP THERE.
America is broken because people have grown lazy and instead of doing something themselves, they look for big brother to do it for them. (and don't bitch about the wage of Walmart, it is a entry level position so you shouldn't be expecting decent wages)
I see some "why does she need 21 billion" getting thrown out there. So what, should there be a cap at what you should be able to earn and the rest gets spread around.edit on 7-1-2013 by MidnightTide because: (no reason given)
