I for one am glad parts of America are finally paying attention to this. We tried to tell our city council of the pitfalls of corporate welfare thirty years ago and they refused to listen. Now all they have is a Walmart and bills.
And all the little companies that paid taxes locally and supported the local community all disappeared.
That's the truth WMT uses the taxpayers to pay for it labor, then skims their own worker paychecks, lies to the local citizens, skims their money, then scams the taxpayers out of their welfare and Medicaid and calls themselves an honest company. Walmart the great America lie.
Let's deconstruct this statement. Welfare Mart buys 90% of its non food items from Communist China. The company prides itself on a scorched earth policy where every blade of grass is burnt down to bedrock when the Big Cancer moves in.
So, in the wake of The Cancer moving in, there is no competition and all that is left is Communist made products on the shelves.
You are correct companies like WMT have drain and destroyed far to many local economies. As for your competition comment. I don't know small locally owned businesses that use welfare and Medicaid to compensate their workers like WMT. If they don't have the revenues to continue busines they fail. WMT Simply puts more people on a part time basis and uses the taxpayers as their employee benefit department.
