My Walmart is always packed. It's not poor people either, it's mostly rich liberals. I have seen supercars in the parking lot quite a few times. It's a quite nice looking Walmart,



I'm left leaning and shop there all the time, not all of us are that obsessive over such things.

I don't have enough money to waste paying more for things I buy routinely. Everytime I check Walmart us lowest. The left tells me I have too much and wamllmaet gives me more. The rest is just talk.

Why don't you just go bop your neighbor on the head and take his stuff? Even easier and infinitely cheaper. After all, it's just talk.

I think they are OK. You could drop by with a Tuna Noodle casserole and make sure they are OK, if you are worried.

This is the correct answer. Walmart is doing well and their footprint is considerably larger than just Wal-Mart super centers really being discussed in the thread

Iím not sure what the issue one would have with a company buying insurance on their employees at any wage level. The loss of an employee cost the company money at any rank

Why would I care about the practice? Why would Wal Mart staff care? Whether WM takes it or does not, working conditions do not change after all.
