Say what you want about Wal – Mart. Here are some facts that should be used when Wal – Mart wants to build in your city. They do more for the working class in this country than the Federal government. They go after the cheapest goods because, lets face it, we Americans love a great deal. Plain and simple. The Unions hate them because they can’t get their mitts on their profits.
Which is all they care about. Look at all the restaurants and other retail shoppes that build after a Wal – Mart is put in. Now, look at the positive economic impact that has for the city.
If our government would lower taxes on business maybe Wal – Mart would buy from them. Again, they are looking for the lowest price to pass on to their customers. Wal – Mart is a great success story. From a general store in Arkansas, to a nationwide chain. Sorry, if the so called mom and pop stores eventually lose out to Wal – Mart.
Thats capitalism my friends. Winners and losers.
Besides, Wal – Mart used to be one of those mom & pop stores you love. Does Wal – Mart make it possible to raise a family of 4 on their salary? No, they do not, unless your management. But, Wal – Mart has made it possible to have part time employees make an extra buck or two. Thats what makes up most of their work force.
If you need more money for family, why should Wal – Mart be blamed, by the Unions for what they call a non livable wage? Wal – Mart has a certain business model and they stick to it. It has proven to be a profitable one.
For the hypocrisy that the critics speak I suggest viewing an episode of South Park. That my friends explains it all.
