“Wal-mart pays so little that up to 80% of its employees are on some sort of public assistance. Wal-mart employees collect around $2.7 billion in welfare a year. This is an issue that needs addressing.”

No it doesn’t. First, I doubt that 80% of its workers are on some form of welfare. Second, its not Walmart’s job to keep people off public assistance. Third, if it is true that they are on public assistance I would say change the requirements so that fewer people qualify.

You can doubt it all you want. Your doubt doesn't make it untrue.

Let's kick Wal-Mart off welfare

Second, its not Walmart’s job to keep people off public assistance.

It's also not the taxpayer's job to pick up Wal-Mart's slack.

Third, if it is true that they are on public assistance I would say change the requirements so that fewer people qualify.

Enjoy your status as a minority party.
