Report: Walmart Workers Cost Taxpayers $6.2 Billion In Public Assistance

minimum wage

Republicans always yak about “right to work”, what about the taxpayers right not to be billed for inadequate wages? For some damn reason Republicans can never see corporate welfare. That’s what people refuse to “get”, those low wages actually cost them (Forbes). People can’t live on $10 an hour, and they are just in the process of raising their wages to that! Corporations should have to pay wages, not have us subsidize their cheating through food stamps, subsidized housing and healthcare and all the other myriad forms of welfare. If you work 40 hours a week you should be able to put a roof over your head, clothes on your back and food in your belly.
