38. Walmart employs more people in America and the world than any other private company

So "going under" would be quite a catastrophe. Walmart and others must change and be responsible employers. Corporations like Walmart, just to name one, have abdicated their responsiblity as citizens to share enormous profits with the workers who produce that profit. On the contrary, corporate greed has hoarded profits while paying workers less, and even while full time workers live below the poverty level.
What is really needed here is a strong retail workers' union, but I don't have too much hope for that.
