Just one state, Ohio spends an estimated $67 million a year to subsidize Wal-Mart workers. In June 2009 15,484 Ohio Wal-Mart workers and dependents received Medicaid benefits and 12,872 Wal-Mart workers and dependents got food stamps.
The owners of Wal-Mart have more wealth than the bottom 40% of the people in the US. When is enough, enough?
One works to better one's life. To afford food, to get health care. We are told that if you work hard that you will get ahead. These worked are the example how what we have been told is not working the way we were lead to believe. And the reason for this is those that we have dubbed the 1%. If the worked at Walmarts around the country can change this stain on the American Dream, others will see that they to can change the way they are being treated.
