well, if you want the numbers, just type how many walmart employees receive foodstamps into google. and you will find that walmart employees are the largest group on healthcare assistance and foodstamps in every state with available data.

So, we let these companies operate by paying their employees so little that they all qualify for federal assistance (effectively subsidizing walmarts labor costs) and you have the audacity to call those on assistance the leeches?

SMFH at you. Still planning on staying on your parent's health insurance until age 26 while lambasting the affordable care act? Typical republican hypocrite. The reddest states have the highest federal $ coming back to them and the largest % of citizens on public assistance. Now, the curb federal spending governors of those states are scared shitless that the fiscal cliff will cause them to lose billions in funding. what kind of funding? oh yeah, federal funding.

And I'm sure you've seen studies and statistics that show churches hand out all of this money to feed the hungry. There's nothing funny about your ignorance. Just admit that you don't care about the less fortunate. Lot's of people are callous, don't worry, you aren't alone.

Instead of having people choose to give to the poor, Democrats think they should force them too. The mind of a child, hopes that that can be sustained.

Republicans believe in "forcing people to give to other" as well.

If by "well documented" you mean "made up by some union person or anti-corporate dickhole with an agenda", I'll believe it. Source this with a photo of a corporate memo in a break room saying this. Eight years I've spent in and out of many different Walmart stores and such a foolish thing has NEVER been on a break room wall in the dozens of stores I've spent time in.

Politifact take on this

I didn't see anything about corporate memo's encouraging this and didn't bother to dig for it.

On sustainability it shocks me that any American can make a point about what can be sustained. The entire American economy is built on unsustainable consumption.

That part sounds like complete shit to me.

Walmart's no angel, but they're certainly not the devil that organized labor and the media like to make them out to be. Labor's interest in Walmart has exactly squat to do with helping associates and everything to do with one thing only: 1.4 million people in the US forking up union dues; people who are already underpaid and won't be guaranteed any substantial pay raise due to any union effort.

the memo may have been an isolated incident (and was from in house management IIRC). Regardless, there is a reason why the largest user of public assistance in every state with data are walmart employees. Biggest money maker in the world, and they are subsidizing their labor costs with govt assistance.
