    Shutting down stores as well. There is a balance to be met.

    Again ---- it's not meaningless to 3802 soon-to-be-unemployed people.

    And here we are again back at square one.

    Again, now you're repeating yourself. The layoffs at Walmart are of no more consequence than the layoffs at Ford, Wells Fargo, K Mart, Sears, etc. Again, people get laid off and go find new jobs, which has been happening in civilized society for quite some time now. Yaaaawwwwwnnnnnn.

    Once AGAIN, no shit Sherlock. We all know how the world works already. What I and Mick posted were specifics about a specific business. The same business that is the topic of this thread. You've already acknowledged those specifics are true. So --- that's it. Ain't rocket surgery.

    Once Again, so what Dr. Watson. The economy is booming and jobs are being created by the thousands every day. You tried to make something here and it didn't work. Ain't rocket surgery. That's it. Move along. The economy is booming and the people being laid off will find new jobs. You're beating a dead horse.

    Once AGAIN this thread isn't about "the economy". It's about Mal-Wart's standing within it. And that's what my link was about. As well as the posts previous to mine.

    And there ain't a damn thing in the world you can do about that.

    Nothing you can do about the fact people get laid off every day and find jobs every day. Still beating that dead horse.

    Once AGAIN -- I made no allusion to "doing" anything about it or taking any action at all. I simply reported a report. And there's STILL nothing you can do about that.

    No, I posted it for the first time here. And apparently it chaps your ass. Go complain to Mal-Wart.
