I've been retired for 2 years now. No kids, and my wife works at a big law-firm.
I stay home and do housework.
Quite nice.

This is stupid.

Don't want to make minimum wage? Educate yourself to get a better job, or work your ass off to prove you deserve a better job. It isn't the responsibility of a company (who's sole and only purpose is to make as much money as possible) to support you. They keep AP low and AR high. That's the POINT!

Why don't Libs understand that? It's a free market. If you hate Wal-Mart so much, don't shop there. If enough people agree with you and stop, they'll either close and go away or make changes to please people. Simple as that.

Ugh--this ignorant crap pisses me off. I turned 32 today (happy birthday to me), and I've been working since I turned 15. I've worked for more years than some of the users on this forum have lived.

Wow. Where to begin.

Firstly, Walmart has 2.2 million employees. This says they keep 7 billion for themselves. 2.2 million employees would each have a share of about $3,200 if all 7 billion were given equally to all the employees. I don't think an additional 3k would satisfy the psycho who made this enough, they're just being weird.

But, as this says rather naively, it that 7 billion also goes to shareholders. If you think shareholders getting money is bad, get out.

The fact is the supply of unskilled labor is TOO BIG. You can try to defy market forces all you want, but you really can't. The more unskilled labor there is, and there is more than ever, the less you will get paid. Unskilled laborers are a dime a dozen. There is no wage competition. Several million unskilled immigrants and a bad education model are largely to blame.

This is beautiful. This really explains the conservative view.

Romney puts this girl, who holds down a full time job, in the 47% "takers" category. Meanwhile the Walton children who have never done a f.ucking thing except be born rich are productive contributing members of society.

I HATE handouts. Let's get rid of welfare for people that sit on their asses and do nothing. However let's make sure there is a job for everyone that wants to work and let's make sure it is enough to actually live off of.

Well, to be fair, they are a corporation and their only directive is to pursue profit. I'm not defending that, but even the part where it says that Wal-Mart could pay more and then employees would have more money to spend at Wal-Mart is not how corporations tend to think. They want IMMEDIATE profits, not hopes for future profits. It's a self-repeating cycle whereby people are so poor they need any job, so they take this one and can't make a decent living, but can't get a better job, so f*ck them, right? The overtime thing is just dickish though, if they work it they should be paid for it without hassle. It's a shame that a corporation's only goal should be profit, they should have some directive to support their employees properly.

The problem is, there aren't many good paying jobs out there. If you were lucky enough to snag one, congrats. For the rest of us, it's minimum wage, part time crap. Why should anyone, anywhere have to work crappy hours for crappy pay while the company gets filthy stinking rich?

Good luck getting that to sink into anyone's head. The right wing folks and their "Trickle Down Economics" actually believe that the rich corporations will take care of their employees.

Worst example they could find to make their Libretard point.
I shop at WalMart regularly and I can tell you NO ONE is working hard there so stop with the bleeding heart "Poor little Faith" thing. I don't blame them for not working hard, you get what you pay for Walmart and your pay scale is schitt.

Now, I do agree with the concept that mega-corporations shouldn't get credits from the government. Why do we subsidize oil? The make record profits every year! But then, I guess that's why Corporations buy politicians, so they can get tax credits and breaks, right? If not, a politician would be way too expensive to own.

Faith should learn about contraceptives or keep her legs shut with deadbeat loosers.

See this is why we need to ban guns, especially those like the ones that are being held against Faith's head forcing her to work at Walmart...

Oh wait their isn't one? Oh well never mind then.
