WalMart: What is wrong with this picture (let me count the ways)?
I was talking to a woman the other day who told me her adult daughter and her son-in-law both work at WalMart full-time. Her SIL works the night shift.
"They were doing ok until they had the baby, then they qualified for Medicaid."
First, I thought (and still do): If you cannot afford a baby, why have one?
Then, I thought: WTF is wrong with effing WalMart that they can't pay living wages or provide decent health care coverage to their f/t employees?
So, think of this: You and I, the tax payers, are basically paying for health care for WalMart workers! WTF is wrong here?!?
Something is really a mess when two adults work full-time and can't afford to have a kid because their wages are so freaking low and they can't get (enough) health care coverage.
Meanwhile, the Walton family is near the top of the Forbes "richest" list year after year as they peddle their crap so cheaply made in other countries where workers have no rights and where few, if any, safety regulations are in place (think India).
I hate WalMart.
