First, I doubt that 80% of its workers are on some form of welfare.

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.

“The first audience member to speak was one Girsheila Green, a young mother from Compton, Calif., who has worked at Wal-Mart for three years.”

The 80% claim is entirely based on a comment made by this woman. You offer that as proof? Ridiculous.

“It’s also not the taxpayer’s job to pick up Wal-Mart’s slack.”
What slack? You want to punish them for giving people entry level jobs? If you hire a kid to mow your lawn do you owe him a wage he can raise a family on? This is hippy nonsense that shows you have no idea about business or economics.

Enjoy your life on the street in a bankrupt country living off scraps found in dumpsters.

Why have you ignored Brooklyn’s question?

You’re basing your “80 percent of Walmart workers are on welfare” claim based on ONE woman at ONE meeting.

Completely ridiculous.

Show us some numbers.

That has got to be the dumbest thing I've seen posted on FR in a long time. Did you get that from Marx?
