    Someone said 11$ is not a min wage one should consider a living wage...that it is a starting wage.


    Then what the fuck is $7.35 per hour?

    Pay to get you to a starting wage?

    I see Retirees who need the money,young kids and a very few that hang on.
    Yes, only the most senior will get that much of a bonus. And you're right, not many people last 20 years.

    That amounts to a retroactive $50.00 per year pay raise. Hell, that's almost a dollar a week.

    Party Time!!!

    And what's up with the $1000 bonuses? Was there a meeting with CEOs and they decided they'd give that amount as a bonus to make it seem as though the tax cuts are so wonderful? I'm happy for those people getting the bonuses, but again, they have absolutely nothing to do with the tax cuts. Are people so gullible that they can be bought off with little crumbs? Corporate America hands them some gruel and they behave as though they were fed lobster and rib eyes.
    Well it appears Walmart had these closings planned. One of ours is closing to become a distribution center. So its possible the announcement just came at the same time. Bad PR but whatever. As to the tax cuts, I still get a kick out of that $300 check during the Bush years. Several of my friends acted like they won the lottery. lol One had even planned to vote for John Kerry since he was a New Englander, but decided to vote for Bush because of that check. To them it was like it came out of his personal bank account!

    A Walmart official says the company is closing 63 Sam's Club stores across the country. About 10 of those stores will be repurposed into e-commerce distribution sites.

    Holy Cow... higher minimum wages does kill jobs.
    60+ NOW. Apparently, all are closing??

    COPS greeted employees in Texas as they showed up for work. COPS had to tell them their store was closed and they no longer had a job!

    According to KHOU, several Sam’s Club employees in Houston, Texas did not learn of the news until they showed up for work on Thursday. Business Insider reported that some employees were turned away by police officers.

    I just reread this entire thread from post 1 to here and I can’t find a single person who complained about Walmart closing a store, or a single person who expressed some kind of political view of any kind.

    This should read “Walmart closes store, I insult random people and call them liberals. Walmart opens a store, I insult random people and call them liberals.”

    Never shopped at a Walmart and never will. When they can pay living wages at the lowest level, so I don't have to subsidize their Corporate Welfare, then I'll think about it.

    I have two Costco's within 5 miles and the Walmart is like 20 miles away. So no, will probably never go there.
