2. It's long past due.

Right now every American is providing support for Wal-Mart so they can pay their employees as little as possible and then the employee has to get some kind of government assistance. Right now we are all subsidizing Wal-Mart's profits. It's about time we subsidized the workers instead. If Wal-Mart can't pay a living wage, they have no right to be in business.

"Provide wages and benefits that ensure that no Associate has to rely on government assistance."
