Thom Hartmann: Vets, America has a DEAL for you...WalMart!



Forget about a good job - that's a career - something like a long-term job manufacturing things, or a job with a pension or a good health insurance plan. Forget about going to college or trade school. Because Wal Mart has a deal for you! You, too, can work at Wal-Mart, where even if you do all your shopping at WalMart, your paycheck still won't cover your cost of living so you’ll qualify for things like Medicaid. Isn't there a big problem with our economy and the way we treat veterans - when the best we can do is offer them a job at Wal-Mart when they come back?

2. Don't worry, Thom...

The factories will be back in America, as soon as the robotics are perfected to the point where human workers are no longer necessary...

3. I'd rather do another Iraq deployment than work at Walwart.
