oh no, ralphie, say it isn't so! you know walmart continually screws its employees over with breaktimes (none) and overtime (unpaid) and then finally gets slapped with a fed or state fine, which is always significantly less than what walmart would have paid the employees if it met minimum labor law. so they just clean up the act for a few weeks and then back to screwing over the workers. ANd, no, the workers aren't working there because they have so many choices elsewhere. I cant step foot in a walmart. they kind of represent evil to me. ok, not kind of. actually do.
but my partner sue shops there. takes all kinds.

Walmart wages ... Sales associates make $9.32/hr. That leaves very little left for anything.
me too. if there is anyway possible to not support a multinational corporation, I'll do it. somethings you can't help - gas for the car, for example. clothing is pretty tough too. food is pretty easy. mobile phone service - can't help it.
y'all know the world would be a much better place if it operated according to my rules.
time to get back to the stove, am making soup.
