Walmart Passes Nearly $1 Million Per Store Operating Cost to the US Taxpayer

I don't know about you but I don't shop at Walmart, won't shop at Walmart and advise others to spend their money elsewhere as well.

So why in the hell should my tax dollars be going to support Walmart employees who aren't paid enough by the wealthiest corporation on the planet? Seriously. Think about that. Walmart is the richest company on earth and they REFUSE to pay their employees wages and benefits that they can live on.

Low Wages at a Single Wal-Mart Store Cost Taxpayers about $1 Million Every Year

The report finds that a single 300-employee Wal-Mart Supercenter in Wisconsin may cost taxpayers anywhere from $904,542 to nearly $1.75 million per year, or about $5,815 per employee. Wisconsin has 100 Wal-Mart stores, 75 that are Wal-Mart Supercenters.
“Wal-Mart is the nation’s largest private-sector employer, yet they pay such low wages that many of its workers are unable to provide their families with the necessities of life. The labor policies of Wal-Mart, and those of companies that emulate its low-road approach, end up leaving  taxpayers holding the bag,” said Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.), senior Democrat on the committee.
This isn't an accident, this is a codified and shareholder approved business practice to wring every last penny out of profit out of the stores and to hell with the employees and customers because to hell with them anyway.

Make no mistake, Walmart absolutely could pay better than they do. They do not because they are greedy assholes bent on extracting as much from America as they possibly can.

Shopping at Walmart is unAmerican and anti-America.
