Since WMT is one of the 5th largest tax payers in the US.It is SHAME that the workers are not paid enough to keep them off of welfare and have to beg to the government in the form of food stamps, and other types of help. Maybe the US should think about TAXING corporations like WMT that pay their employees low wages and only let them work 25 hours a week so they can not make a decent living .
Representative-elect Alan Grayson (D-FL) said Monday that he will put mega-retailer Walmart squarely in his sights during the next Congress for the company’s liberal use of public assistance programs to supplement their workers’ wages.
Speaking to Current TV host Cenk Uygur on Monday’s episode of “The Young Turks,” Grayson called Walmart “the largest recipient of public aid in the country,” saying their low wages force workers to take food stamps, housing assistance and Medicaid just to get by
Why not set a tip box at every register in WMT so people that think employees don't make enough can tip. That is what I had a employee do to a smart customer except I said double the price of service and put half in your pocket. That didn't go well .
Really? Taxing WMT because some of its associates apply for food stamps? Get real! WMT already pays the 5th highest income taxes of any company. Now you want them to pay more? You need your head examined to see if there are real brains in there.

Well considering they are using the taxpayers as their employee benefit department they clearly are paying enough. I pay for all my labors without using the taxpayers, why does WMT and you shep feel like it is entitled to the taxpayers subsidizing their labor costs.
Gimmie...gimmie..gimmie people who feel entitled that the government owes them something that is what wrong with you shep. When I wake up every morning I know none of my employes and their families slept in government subsidized housing, will use food stamps to eat today or will have to go to a Medicaid doctor.
I'm proud of that. This something you will never. ever feel shep...pride in doing what is right.
welfaremart is certainlyb nothing for America to be proud of, it's a huge taxpayer parasite. Instead of supplementing the economy with good jobs it is first in line with it hand out for taxpayer welfare and Medicaid. Totally gross.
WMT is a great company and is the envy of many. You claim such great things about paying your employees yet you don't even know your tax rate. How dumb is that. WMT is the 5th highest taxed company in the country. They pay their way.
