[QUOTE]Originally posted by NR: [QB] [QUOTE]Originally posted by buckstalker: [qb] "Financial Hardships" and not making enough money to put food on the table are two completely different things NR...get your head out of your azz... Do you honestly believe that $8.00 an hour is a fair living wage, and you would be willing to work for that, without asking for any assistance? Could YOU survive on a Walmart job today? [/qb][/QUOTE]You need to pull your own head out of your ass and study up on your reading comprehension. The article sourced for this thread talks about <u>ONE Walmart in Ohio that held a "Holiday Food Drive" for it's employees for Thanksgiving.</u> To try to suggest that this means all Walmart employees can't put food on the table, (as both you and the author of said article are tying to do), is a just asinine. As far as surviving on Walmart wages now? No, I couldn't. If I were single again with no kids? YES. I could survive on minimum wage. I did then, and I could do it again. No doubt in my mind. See, the thing that some people don't understand, is that the only person looking out for you and your interests is yourself, (and maybe your family and friends). I knew when I was working at JCPenney that I couldn't have a family and the things I wanted at that kind of job, unless I planned to try for management, (I hated sales jobs, I don't like bending truths trying to convincing people to buy crap they don't really need), I was going to have to find something better. Never once did "living wage" cross my mind, nor this idiotic notion that someone was just going to hand me the wages required to have what I wanted or even needed. There was even a period of about 8 months or so where I worked 2 jobs. One during the week and the other during the weekends. I didn't cry injustice, I didn't make signs, I just did what had to be done. [/QB][/QUOTE]
