I was watching a special and they were saying what the Walmart family owns is equal to what over 40% of Americans on the bottom of the economic ladder owns. And remember when I said that food stamps are used as a business supplement because people raising a family on minimum wage - can't? Remember how Republicans talked about how great is it working at Walmart? That if people would just get a job, they could get off foodstamps? Wage and Hour Lawsuits against Wal-Mart Settled for over $350 Million - AboutLawsuits.com Last week, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. announced that they have agreed to pay between $352 million and $640 million to settle 63 wage and hour lawsuits filed against the retailer in 42 different states. The lawsuits accused the company of cheating hourly workers by forcing them to work through breaks and not paying them for overtime. Remember before the election Republicans on this very site, suggested there is nothing wrong with corporations becoming more involved in government? That they want what's best for the country because they are profit driven? Even Mitt Romney said "Corporations are people my friend". Earlier this month, Wal-mart agreed to pay $54.3 million to settle a wage and hour class action lawsuit brought on behalf of workers in Minnesota, after a judge found that the company had violated wage and hour laws more than 2 million times. And Republicans on this very site want to shrink government to the point where it can be drowned in a bathtub and abolish all those stifling regulations. How many Republicans have talked about abolishing the minimum wage? This is why we have to be vigilant when it comes to the Republican Party. They are dangerous and full of the "gullible".
