Wake up! It's all tied together. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.

nic, that`s just bull$#!+ liberal propaganda. The fact is, so-called poor people today live much better than the middle class did 100 years ago. They have cars, televisions, cable, computers, high-speed Internet, washers and dryers, microwave ovens, cell phones, and a large portion of them are FAT! Their standard of living has increased and continues to increase, or at least it did up until the Democrats took over congress in 2007. In case you didn`t notice, THAT`S when the economy turned to $#!+.

I`ll bet you even buy into the old liberal canard that you can create jobs by raising taxes on employers. No one had ever been able to explain that to me. Maybe you can.

I love it when it's said people work at lowing paying jobs with no benefits "voluntarily". It`s like saying "I think I`ll volunteer to eat today."

Also, the old argument that all the "bad" jobs are taken up by "other" people, like the Chinese...Walmart is the number one employer in the US. That`s a fact. Not too long ago it was the automotive industry. It`s also a fact that more people in North America are struggling from pay cheque to pay cheque and are more in debt than ever before.

Wake up! It`s all tied together. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.

P.S. As for the jobs in China being difficult and dirty, so was working in an auto plant. But back in the day you were paid a living wage to build cars right here in North America. How many would trade that job to work in a Walmart?

nicodemus, Wal-mart employees are paid the market rate, i.e., there are plenty of people who are freely willing to work for what they offer. If they paid less, they couldn't staff their stores, and if they paid more, they would be in breach of their fiduciary responsibility to their stockholders.

Who benefits? Well, the employees, of course, who are there voluntarily, plus tens of millions of customers who enjoy a MUCH higher standard of living because they can buy more and better stuff for their money. That includes food, clothing, shoes, electronics, toys, pet supplies, housewares, hardware, paint, automotive, lawn and garden, personal care, eyeglasses, and pharmacy.

And if you`re pining about jobs being lost to China, it`s probably because you never had to work in a shoe or garment factory. Trust me, that work was brutal, and it paid less than working at Wal-mart. We`re all better off to let the Chinese do that.

AvatarJohn: is Walmart really a success? And by that I mean, is it really good for North America? I'll only raise two points, but could list many more: how much do employees make per hour, do they have any benefits; and where is over 90% of the merchandise being sold made? So who really benefits from a successful Walmart conglomerate?
