4. I know I'm going to be condemned for this, but...


There are people who want to shop at Walmart (obviously), and if they wat to do that I think they should be allowed to do so. It's a free country.

There are people who want to work there. They should be allowed to do so. Why should they remain unemployed because we don't like Walmart?

I don't want to shop there, and I don't do so. I don't want to work there, either. Happily I had a better job until I retired. If I had no job and was hurting for work... If I had not had a job for years and my unemployment was running out and they offered me a job... Hmmm. I might not hate them. I might want to work there rather than let my family starve.

Oh, right, I forgot. My family will starve if I do work there. They are slave employers and don't pay their workers. Maybe I'm missing something, but to me $7.25 per hout is better than the $0.50 per hour I could make collecting cans.

I realize that their presence makes Safeway, Albertson's, Ralphs, and Kroger all go out of business and in all of their employees being laid off. Oh wait, someone said they shopped at both Walmart and Albertson's so I guess they didn't drive Albertson's out of business.

Meanwhile, if I don't like Walmart, and I don't, I just won't shop at Walmart, which I don't.
