Faith can stick with Walmart and advance to management like real hardworking people. Entry levels jobs pay entry level wages, as it should be. Otherwise, there is no incentive.

*sigh*
Minimum wage jobs are unskilled jobs, and not meant to be full time jobs, livable wage jobs. Minimum wage jobs are for people such as students, or for people in between jobs.

Raise the minimum wage, forcefully (e.g. law) or voluntarily (e.g. Wal*Mart pays more), too fast and rapid inflation will happen. A steady inflation is good, but this would be rapid.

The best way is to educate people.

Some of you guys are such a-holes.

You are living proof that brainwashing works.

How does any of this make sense?
MANY companies are posting record profits while unemployment rises, under-employment is commonplace, and benefits disappear.

And too many of you are cheering it on.
Attacking & belittling those who struggle.

It's only a matter of time before it affects you.

I wish I knew you... so I could watch it happen.

5Cats-"People have rights whether they have skills or not."

Agreed.

cityncolour-"so what you're saying is..."

What follows that statement in no way reflects what I've written.

cityncolour-"DOES NOT mean it's ok to use the united states', and other countries' workforce as veritable slaves"

Sorry, someone who has no work skills making $8 an hour is not 'slaves', veritable or not. I suggest you look up the definition of 'slave'.

cityncolour-"you sit here and claim the billionaires are more important"

Something else that was not in anything I've written.

Would you like to limit yourself to arguing what's actually been written instead of making stuff up?

Never had help getting where they are (i.e. education(taxes) , transportation(taxes), fresh water(taxes), electricity(taxes), nourishment, opportunity, nepotism etc., etc., etc.)


Education-The teachers and staff were NOT forced to work at the school.
Transportation-No one was forced nor had to be, in order to send the child to school

Saying everything else was or had to be paid for by taxes is incredibly facetious.

so what you're saying is every person who owns a business and makes a lot of money, has #1 started on a level playing field. #2 Never had help getting where they are (i.e. education(taxes) , transportation(taxes), fresh water(taxes), electricity(taxes), nourishment, opportunity, nepotism etc., etc., etc.) I happen to believe that while a private business, in no means is OBLIGATED to anyone, that DOES NOT mean it's ok to use the united states', and other countries' workforce as veritable slaves for the sake of your bottom dollar... especially when were talking about numbers in the BILLIONS. the only reason these kind of tactics are acceptable is because this country has somehow convinced everyone that WE OWE THE BUSINESSES something. it's sad really. it's a symbiosis, yet you sit here and claim the billionaires are more important, while the other, equally as important, half suffers in poverty. sad indeed.

5Cats-"People have value whether they have skills or not."

@MeGrendel: I was quoting @HolyGod, who'd slipped that little gem in earlier...

People have rights whether they have skills or not. However, things like "living wage" aren't a "right" anywhere in the (free? sane?) world.

And no one has the "right" to steal other people's money...

That was my point, I was reinforcing the notion that the opportunity to become rich was given to the rich voluntarily when they weren't rich. You're right about all the items I listed. So I agree with you.

$8. an hour is .50 more than minimum wage.
She's lucky she has the steady $8. an hour, at least she's not a waitress making $3.75 an hour having to rely on tips to support her kid.
Oh wait! Thousands of women do, and I don't see anyone complaining about how evil small mom and pop restaurants are.
I'm poor enough that a month without work would leave me homeless and hungry but as far as I'm concerned those that complain about the rich are even greedier and filled with nothing but poisonous envy.

I had to stop reading when the picture COMPLAINED THAT SOMEONE IS MAKING TOO MUCH MONEY!

GOT OVER IT! If you came up with Walmart, you would be making JUST AS MUCH MONEY and NOT COMPLAINING.

Cajun247-"-Life"

Actually, I'm pretty sure that was his parents that gave them that.

Cajun247-"-Food"

Which was paid for.

Cajun247-"-Housing with TV and AC"

Which was paid for.

Cajun247-"-Education"

Which was paid for.

EVERY person has these, and for the most part paid for it. Based on these criteria everyone had a chance.

Sam Walton did not take from others to get rich. He provided goods and services. He provided jobs and careers. He enriched other in the process.

And yet, liberals want to call him 'evil'.

people who bitch about the poor fail to remember its cyclical.

you raise minimum wage, people next up want their pay raised, etc, and then companies say, "well, we need to increase the price of things to offset all these raises." and suddenly, the minimum wage isn't enough anymore, so we start the cycle over.

The 'Rich' did not become rich by taking from the middle class or the poor


As a matter of fact it was the lower and middle class that GAVE these rich people:

-Life
-Food
-Housing with TV and AC
-Education

All of which so they could go from poor or comfortable to being super rich. None of these comforts were supplied by force. They were given voluntarily because a family wanted more joy in their life.

Other than that we should not have a tax code that's libraries (yes I wrote 'libraries') long that can be gamed by anyone. We should also be more strict about who receives Medicare and OASDI so I don't have to pay a higher payroll tax (which Obama just raised TYVM) on the little income I make from FedEx.

Runemang-"even to the extreme detriment of the other 99% of the population of the country that gave them the opportunity"

Sorry, the '99%' did not 'give them the opportunity'.

For the most part, they made their own opportunity. (there are some exceptions..Paris Hilton for example).

It's not a zero-sum game. The 'Rich' did not become rich by taking from the middle class or the poor. Many times they became rich by creating money, and jobs and opportunity for others.

5Cats-"People have value whether they have skills or not."

Incorrect. A person has no inherent value just for the fact they exist.

Some have great value.
Some have none.
Some have negative value.

It's up to an individual to determin his or her value.

I find this rather odd considering that their lowest paid employees actually earn around $10 per hour and they have a profit sharing program for employees who put in 1000 hours of work within a year. Also 75% of higher level employees actually started out in the job held by faith.

For more on this issue, watch Penn & Teller: Bull5h17! episode on "Walmart Hate"

Look, no matter how you slice it, any help will hurt. Raise minimum wage, Walmart lets more people go and/or raises their prices which means those employees spend more now that they make more, etc, etc, etc. Bottom line is that the millionaires and billionaires will continue to be so. Nothing will ever hurt them as long as they're not breaking the law because they pass any pinch down to employees and consumers. Capitalism is a wonderful thing, but taken to an extreme we end up with what we have now - the rich have every intention of staying rich or getting richer (nothing wrong with that) even to the extreme detriment of the other 99% of the population of the country that gave them the opportunity to profit from capitalism (uhoh). The incentive for the rich to stay and get richer is harmful to everyone else. But what's the solution? I haven't the first clue. Curb the rich and it misses completely and hits the poor and middle class, so ... *shrug*

whodat6484-"Now I know why they always look at us like we're crazy"

Down here there is only two classes of workers who do things slow: Unemployed & Union.

I was in a union where a 'worker' filed a greivence because 'no body woke me up so I could take my break'.

The union BACKED HIM. Saying that he didn't necessarily need to be awake the full 8-hour shift.

That was the LAST union I was in.
