    Dunce!
    If WalMart didnt hire them the taxpayer would be on the hook for their entire subsistence. WalMart subsidizes the state, not the other way around.

    Why doesn't Walmart pay a living wage? Answer: because the owners are greedy and want taxpayers to subsidize their employees.

    .

    Improve your skills. Get a better job. Or get a second or third job while you're improving your skills, as most of us did. Or do a great job where you are and get promoted. Or start your own business You can do it. I believe in you.

    Aw, fuck it.

    Walmart pays what the market dictates they pay. It's that simple. If people won't work for the wages they offer they'll have a shortage of workers and will be forced to pay more. They are not obligated to pay anyone what you think they should be paid. That is how the free market works, Komrade.

    They don't pay a "living wage" because it not their responsibility to make sure you live to a standard you are comfortable with.
