What a wonderful story.

With you saying so little, I was almost afraid to click on the link.

But what a wonderful story.

The owners are so generous. What an honorable way to step away from your family business.

I can't say anything else but "wow"!

Walmart isn't a family-owned business... so I am guessing not... The family got a big payout for selling and they shared... I am wondering how much the family got... they should be careful, the socialists would demand an equal amount of the pot for simply being their employee...

Its a little higher... it was 17k in 2005... How much profit should someone share with a cashier? Give it time and Walmart will replace them with self-checkouts with one clerk managing six to eight lanes... how much should that person share in the profit for simply "being there"... its all in perspective... the employees at the other firm produce stuff and was in manufacturing... Walmart employees don't produce anything and are thus just service jobs... profit sharing for ringing up a cash register? I rather they build more walmarts and get stuff cheaper... and more self-checkout lanes...
