The people at Walmart are paid union people. That says it all. Walmart
is the best friend of middle class America.
My five married children and their spouses all have at least a BA degree. The
wives are great stay at home moms and the husbands all have good jobs and
careers. Is there a message here?
@indycrimson. Walmart has the highest amount of employees on Medicaid(sorry not

People who work part time have time to look for another job. If they take a job

Yeah old school, I don't shop there. Never have, never will.
Walmart leads the nation in private businesses with most employees on taxpayer

Walmart is the consumption Beast, they bear the mark of the beast with their
attempts at banking and selling all in one place.
