2. wonder how many live in subsidized housing?

low income workers are in many of the HUD subsidized housing units in my small town. The rents are just too high and the wages too low.

4. Ah, but remember my friend, thats their choice.

There are plenty of job opportunities out for lower middle class families.
It is purely their own choice.They need to show some initiative and perhaps
go back to school at a for profit learning institution. Maybe take on three jobs.
There are viable solutions out there for them, so they should quit complaining!!!

I'm so sick of fucking Walmart!!!!!!

5. When you apply for a job at Walmart



part of the application process includes video slides which educate employees on what in my state is called (WIC) (Women/Infant and children) which is a a low income government assistance program.


It literally is a part of Walmart's business model to have their employees (or in other words their workforce) subsidized by the tax payers.

You could make a legit case given all of the Walmart stores in Indiana, that WIC is not a program to aid the poor, but a government subsidy to the billion dollar Walmart company to help fund their labor force.


I wonder if Mitt Romney and the GOP would call this a "gift" to the Walmart Corporation.

9. Reminder: The GOP regards gifts to corporations as A-OK!!

But when you start extending the benefits of citizenship (i.e. "gifts") to carbon-based life forms, THEN you're a socialist!!

8. Walmart employees need approximately $420,000 per year per store

Citizens from whom Walmart is stealing to pay their employees want our money back from WALMART, not starving children.

Here's what Walmart's intentionally low wages are costing hard-working taxpayers like us:

Walmart's intentionally low wages force hard-working employees to need approximately $420,000 per year, per store, totalling $2.66 BILLION annually in Food Stamps and other taxpayer assistance ... to survive.
Walmart's intentionally low wages cost the country HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars in payroll tax deductions for Federal, State, and Local taxes.
Walmart's intentionally low wages cost our communities the ability to hire and retain important public service workers like firefighters, police officers, maintenance workers, and teachers.
Walmart's intentionally low wages cost our communities with their increased need for those same public services they are underfunding.
Walmart's intentionally low wages and lack of covered benefits cost taxpayers over $1.02 BILLION a year in healthcare costs.
Walmart's intentionally low wages cost taxpayers as much as $225 MILLION in free and reduced price lunches for school-age children.
Walmart's intentionally low wages cost taxpayers over $780 MILLION in tax deductions for low-income families.
And that's just some of the burden placed on taxpayers by Walmart's intentionally low wages.

10. Just following Henry Ford's model....

you pay your employees enough to buy your own products.



Sorry, I had to go there. It's a curse.
