I'm not in favor of the government cracking down on them, but a company that wealthy paying their full time employees so badly they qualify for government benefits is a joke!

I assume you refer to the medical and food stamps.

I work full time at Wal Mart. My pay is above minimum wage here. Decent for this rural area. I would like more, but I get by.

I have Blue Cross, $350 deductible, $20 co-pay, long and short term disability, AFLAC, dental, etc. I pay less than $100 per month for myself.

Are there others at our store on the free public ride? You betcha there is!

OPPS wait!! They have large families by their choice!

Insurance companies increase premiums with each added family member to cover....hmmmmm

Yep... it must be Wal Marts fault they chose the cheaper insurance coverage for their familes.

You are a rare case. I was thinking of someone who may be trying to work there and raise a family, like most anyone would think possible at such a large company. Sure it's their choice, and a bad one, but I would be ashamed if I owned the largest company in the world and the majority of people working for me would qualify for food stamps if they worked for me and tried to support their families.

I'm as pro-capitalism as they come. I'm just going on morality here.
