    That's all well and good but Costco has a fraction of the workers that Walmart has, further Costco isn't the people's store. It is the store for the affluent amongst us. They don't build in the inner cities and they don't build in the rural areas. They are in suburbia where the customers have a little more. Walmart increased their starting wage at a huge expense to them and all the got for it was grief. There is no satisfying the left. If I was in their shoes, I wouldn't raise starting wages again until there was a shortage of people to fill open positions.

    How did Melania make out with her lawsuit complaining she can not make money off of being First Lady? A job she has yet to do?
    President Donald J Trump isn't running the company. He doesn't control where the shirts and ties are made. His businesses are a tiny small insignificant amount of the business. And yes, I know that you hate Melania Trump, too. After all, the left only likes liberals.

    As this admin shows that it's OK to be a Proud American, you will see the mood change within the country. There is no shame in having signs that state Made in the USA near domestically made products. Let the consumers decide to buy or not but do not chastise a person for having pride in the nation like was done the past admin.

    I had no say in American companies shipping out of the US.

    So called American companies have no loyalty to the American worker or consumer.

    Buy all the American made stuff you can. Be a great American.

    Maybe you should start voting if you are having no say, that's what we did and we now own Congress and the WH.

    Not true at all! I was in COSTCO just last month. Bought a great Panasonic Microwave. Clerks were every where. Even passing out samples,something that Groceries seldom do any more. My Son and DIL shop there all the tome, dropped their Sam's Club card. Of course they buy for the big family parties they are always having. I do not have to do that any more.

    I did not see that many affluent people there.

    The Dollar Stoes hurt WALMART. The same way they killed MOM & Pop stores. Along with ALDIES,a German Grocery.

    More memory loss. Donald J. Trump was running the company when they decided to make ties and shirts over seas.

    This is how dumb and inconsistent right wingers can be. All this "yeah, buy American" but then they always try to argue that "companies are leaving because of our taxes, lets give them tax breaks" and then all the workers already suffering have to make up the difference. They basically excuse companies bad behavior, and ridiculously blame liberals for companies moving overseas. Yes, american workers should make slave wages like other countries just to keep the jobs here. Companies should pay no taxes. Companies are making really good profits, they can be profitable without outsourcing, but they are greedy. Right wingers condone and defend that greed, then whine about jobs leaving.

    Whatever dumb argument is fitting at the time, they try to use. Nobody is buying this stupid bullshit.

    You can't have companies and rich people pay no taxes, and then not point a finger at them when they outsource jobs. Why is this suddenly your issue\ when its been an issue for decades?

    instead of learning a new skill, investing in education, science and new technologies (like Green technologies) that can create entire industry, the right opposed all this. Well, no shit you are suffering. Manufacturing will never come back to the levels it did, Coal and oil/gas jobs are not coming back. They are the past. We need to create new industries, become the world leaders in these industries, like we have done in the past, and that will create jobs.

    And the very same people thumb their nose at service workers as not deserving of better pay, because it is unskilled. Well, nearly anyboody can work in a factory and it doesn't require lots of skill, so not sure why one job to you is worthy of better pay than others. People working should not need welfare and live in poverty and be starving

    Costco has a more affluent customer base than Walmart. That's not even in contention. Am I saying that everyone that shops there is rich? No. It's relative. But they purposely do not build their warehouse clubs in areas that are poverty stricken nor in rural areas. No, Costco customers are far more affluent than Walmart.

    Costco Is Not For Everyone
    Bargains are the big attraction at Costco, but the average transaction is often very steep, which is why the typical Costco shopper earns about $100,000 a year. Costco shoppers enjoy a bargain as much as anyone else, but they also have the means to buy in bulk, which, for many products, is the only way to buy them. Although the cost of shampoo at Costco is the lowest around, shoppers pay three times that amount because it is typically sold as a three-pack. Multiply that by any number of products shoppers add to their carts, and you can see why the average transaction is so high. It is also why most Costco shoppers are homeowners. It takes a lot of space to store bulk purchases. It so happens that, of the more than 700 Costco stores, the vast majority are located in suburban areas heavily populated with affluent homeowners.
