Daily breaking news and news the liberal media doesn't want you to know, won't report, or just daily news issues.

Americans for many years have had to rely on left leaning biased news reporting from liberal media such as NBC, ABC, and CBS and the New York Times. As most of these outlets struggle to remain on the air and in print, the new media is flourishing and people are hearing both sides of the issues. This forum will provide people with a place to discuss daily news issues of any kind or discuss articles not printed or aired by the liberal news outlets.

their single income fall within the federal guidelines of who qualifies then so be it. gm was at the top of their game in the mid-fifties, almost 60 years ago and i am certain that they were advised of "any" government program for which they would qualify.

scrappile, when i searched your claim on google it returned three links. one of which simply mimiced a few key words. the other two were motherjones and democraticunderground. the latter was a post in a forum. i would find it odd that your claim is not supported outside of that forum post. it is not to say that it isn't true, mind you, but you must admit the obscurity and source of your claim could lead one to question the validity. i would have hoped that you would have commended walmart for advising employees of any government program that is available to them. keep in mind that your tax dollars advise and direct working and non-working folks to a vast choice of government provided resources. heck, we even pay people to fill out the forms for them if that is too challenging of a task. i think you will agree that the single-earner household is not and has not been the norm for some time now. most jobs that walmart offers does not lend itself to fit the single provider role and should

I do not see folks trying to protect Sears workers, JCP, Foot Locker, Victoria Secrets, Value City, LOwes, Home Depot, Sam Club (even though Sam's is owned by the same company ad Wal Mart), Peebles, Kohls, etc.

Wal-Mart: whenever a store opens hundreds line up for job. When workers show up for work I have never seen a supervisor pushing them into the store at gunpoint. It is tough to find parking in a Walmart on Saturday. Shoppers do not wear masks going into Wal-Mart so they must not be ashamed of shopping there. Would people shop in the Walmart grocery section if they had to pay Giant Eagle pricing? Why are people worried about Wal-Mart employees health care since the AFHCA kicks in now and they can go out and buy affordable health care on their own? People don’t blink an eye when it is reported that Tiger Woods make a 100 million a year of Howard Stern makes a 95 million or baseball cheater makes 34 million but they freak out about what the WalMart CEO makes.

Wal~Mart gives seminars to its employees on how to apply for snap, wic, heap, medicaid, what is the nations largest private employer saying to it`s workforce, dont believe GM or Ford did this, when they were the largest private employers.....

chose to switch to government supplied health options. there are many reasons for that decision which i neither have the time nor the inclination to discuss. also, corporations are really no different that groups of people that form political action committees. if you desire to blame anyone for their lack of voice, start and end with the politician. it is their ear and their decision which you need.

scrappile: fact...walmart does not receive food stamps as a benefit. they do however redeem them. in addition, with 2.1 million employees they have a relatively low rate of employees that receive public assitance in some form. i have read on an independent site that it was between 8-10%. considering that number, it could be argued that they are actually lower than our own government numbers for total public assistance without any real productivity. while i am not always a fan of some of their business practices, it should be noted that there are very few with advanced degrees that stock the aisles or buff the floors that would or should qualify for the wages that some seem that walmart (customers) should have to provide. in addition, walmart spends about $3500.00 per employeee for basic health coverage. the national average is about $4200.00 per employee. buying in bulk for the large number of employees would warrant a lower cost. it appeared after some research that many employees ch

So does corporate responsibility=personal responsibility?

Fact: wal~mart is the largest food stamp recipient......of course it is always easier to blame those without a voice, because supreme court injustices said money=free speech.....scotus also said corporation=personhood.....

the exception. if the guilt ever really weighs on aperson, they can always slip the unfortunate Walmart employee a few bucks to compensate them for the injustice one may perceive.

thegreek, i looked into walmart salaries. you will find that they are all above minimum wage and offer some benefits to even the part-time folks. it was noted that 75% of their employees work full-time. they also employ those that society sometimes deems "unemployable" and without skill. the notion that companies are somehow created to become a "nanny corporation" is insane. i do not understand when it became sacrilegious for a person to work more than one job to cover their "chosen and imposed" living expenses. as much as anyone is "pushed" into government programs or tax deductions based on earnings, the same energy could have been put into aquiring another job. no, most choose to take the easier way out. but then again it is legal. maybe we should complain less about the employer and focus more on the employee and their lack of motivation, education or ingenuity. the severely handicapped, mentally challenged and the infirmed elderly would be

I know it is legal Moderation. I was simply trying to answer Berights previously asked question. I saw this on the direct tv special about WalMart. The rising cost of walmart I think was the name of it. It is legal but appears to place some of the burden of WalMarts success on the public for which they are in business for. If they paid their employees a decent wage (can be said for a lot of corporations) and employed them full time instead of part time, they would be less dependent on the system.
