    I think Chuck is a paid commentor – just like they had people posing as employees at strikes.

    And Chuck, Teabonics spelling aside, if Walmart pays so well, and one can make such a good living, then why would one need to get a second job?? One job at 40 hours a week should be enough for everyone to get by, theoretically.

    I used to comment and argue with people on these messages boards, but I’m getting older now and understand that it is of no use. The problem is that the majority of you are duped. You have been duped by politicians who want you to vote for them. You have been duped so often that it angers you to see the truth. Here’s the hard truth: you are where you are because you decided to be there. Don’t blame anyone else for where you are. I personally have had great success despite growing up in poverty and dropping out of high school so I can smoke pot and play guitar. Somewhere along the line, I decided to be something more. I worked crappy fast food jobs and got my GED. I worked two crappy jobs and paid for a degree while sacrificing the time I could have fun with my coworkers. Once I finished my degree, I worked a much better job where my employer paid for my advanced degrees. Now, I will retire early and never have to worry about money.
    I didn’t work at Walmart, but a relative of mine worked his butt off to move from a $6 an hour night job to a six-figure management position. When he returned to his hometown, he saw the same guy with whom he started the same job, working the same job they did when they started. The guy with whom he started made the decision to come in every day and do what he could to avoid being fired so he could go home and have fun. It’s fine. He made that choice. Just don’t blame someone else for his struggles. If one makes mistake in life, ask for help and someone will help. But turn off the TV, study, and work hard to rectify it and don’t blame others.
    Like I said earlier, I used to make comments like this, but I expect few of you to listen. Why? Because many of you would rather call the people on this list evil without knowing them because it helps justify your position, just like many of you will disregard what I say because it invalidates your position. You love politicians who tell you that people are where they are because someone else put them there and you hate to be proven wrong.

    THOMAS, Your comments show great ignorance, and that sadly, you are the one duped– by that ignorance!!! Understandably I guess, but now that your entire existence does not have to be that of an apparently bitter worker bee, you really should educate yourself! Watch a little film called ¨IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE¨. If you root for the banker, the soulless, lying, greedy WORTHLESS sack of poisoned garbage-then you can defend the soulless, lying, greedy WORTHLESS, poisonous Walton clan. Yes, ironically they have billions and are WORTHLESS humans! They have company–the Koch brothers, who are nazi heirs, and several others born with silver spoons and wiped with dollar bills, like Bush, Trump and basically all the billionaires who never had to work for it-having it when they were born! The ones who REALLY work for it and get so incredibly wealthy are usually very WORTHY people who enjoy giving back to the people who make them so filthy rich. Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, and many other SELF made billionaires enjoy spreading wealth… and helping people to become educated and help themselves!!! The Waltons, Kochs, and every other Greed Over People billionaire could make the world better-but choose to be anti-Christs, (all that he stood for!) and actively make it worse! If you do see this movie, you will not wish to live in POTTERSVILLE (the ugly, angry, dirty, poverty and crime infested creation of the worthless banker Mr. Potter). That is what the Waltons, and their fellow spoiled and soulless, worthless, money-worshiping, power-hungry gang want to create. A world where YOU, AND MANY OF US WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO AFFORD COLLEGE!! Bedford Falls, is a community where neighbors care for one another, help one another, and give back. It is a much better and happier place to live-before Potter figures out how to steal everyone’s money and opportunity for betterment. The grotesque banker Potter is evidently the role model for these worthless money grubbing dirt-bag billionaires!! Only the decent, good guy, and every-man played by Jimmy Stewart sees his evil-and so works to STOP HIM! RE: ¨ many of you would rather call the people on this list evil without knowing them…¨ __ that is a TOTALLY ignorant statement! WE DO KNOW, AND WE KNOW EXACTLY HOW THEY ARE EVIL AND THE EVIL THEY DO!! No one would be calling them evil if they didn’t destroy American jobs by selling almost only MADE IN CHINA FOR SLAVE LABOR (so they can make even mooooore profits muahahahahhaaha) drain the economy by paying such poverty wages that their workers need govt. assistance to EAT – and since they buy food at Walmart- that W family gets to gobble up welfare money WHILE BEING -MULTI-MULTI-BILLIONAIRES TOO! They don’t pay their taxes, further crippling the economy-they want to OWN and stifle the education system…they take absolutely no responsibility for having ethical business practices no matter WHO they hurt or destroy…and in my book ALL that is pretty darned evil!! Last time I checked Costco payed their employees around $15.00 an hour and their profits were still HUGE!! The decency and morals of the Walton family power members is non-existent.

  5. Thomas says:

    Merilee, thank you for your advice. I have seen “It’s a Wonderful Life”, and I think it’s a wonderfully inspirational movie. I don’t think however, watching movies are the best way to become educated. Judging from the content of your post, I assume you believe Avatar and Titanic are educational as well – especially because of their two-dimensional representation of “the rich”. This representation fits nicely in the narrative that has been written to garner support from people who would rather blame others than take responsibility for their own failures. From being educated by movies like these, you and many others have learned that “the rich” are evil without asking yourself whether human beings, rich or poor, are so easily categorized as good or evil. I think better advice would be learning from experience – stepping out of the movie theater and traveling the world. Witness the amazing potential of entrepreneurship in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. But, I assume that you have an uninformed two-dimensional view of people in these countries.

    Amazingly, you also use Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates as examples of self-made billionaires. Are you suggesting then that with hard work, someone could be a billionaire? Doesn’t that go against everything the labor movement is about? Doesn’t that suggest that even a Walmart employee has the opportunity to be successful? Do I have to remind you that Sam Walton has been credited as working harder than almost anyone and achieved success that most on Wall Street thought was unlikely for someone they considered a backwards hillbilly? If success is possible for these three examples, are you suggesting Walmart employees are less than these people? Are you arguing that I am wrong to suggest that anyone, regardless of race or gender, is equal to these three people in their capacity for success? Maybe the problems the U.S. is facing now are not the result of “rich greed”, but the result of this narrative perpetuated by politicians and Hollywood that some deserve a $15 an hour job because they are not capable of great success on their own. Ask yourself why some do not want people to know that they are capable of great things regardless of who they are, where they are, or where they have been.

  6. Samuel says:

    Thomas and Merilee both make great points. One must work hard to get to the top. However, the business practices of the Walton family are despicable. Caroline Good, please know that the great Sam Walton is not responsible for the current business model for Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club. I am very sure he is turning in his grave right now. I also would like to point out that it was the “every-man” who pointed out Mr. Potter’s evil. The average person has the God-given power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18) and people ARE responsible for wherever they are presently. That being said, The Walton family have stolen jobs away from this great nation. They have also underpaid workers. I do not agree with these things. I am upset that there are people trying to get the national minimum wage increased to $15.00. I am absolutely positive that people should not be living off minimum wage. Those wages were supposed to be for high school and college students. I don’t get why people would have Wal-Mart or fast food restaurants as their main source of income. Let us work hard so we can create jobs right here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. The truth is, many people are stuck in Wal-Mart and other low paying jobs because they work so many hours at them to look for another job (sorry Ben, but you dared me). My suggestion is to cut out any leisure time and use that to get ahead. I know there are possibly soe people with only 2 hours or less of leisure time per week. I believe that time should be used, even if it is just thirty minutes, for their betterment. Some members of this family might have money as their god, the way Middleclassgirl said. I believe we should keep them in our prayers, but still speak against the many atrocities their business practices have caused. Factory workers in China make $1 per hour in poor working conditions. Many people have died due to these working conditions. If you pay attention to the news, you would know that Wal-Mart has started investing in “Made in USA” products. Congratulations!!! The many years of your voices collectively complaining about this issue have finally paid off. TV is Satan’s greatest weapon in this day and age. I can honestly tell you that TV was at one time in my life my god. If not for the Lord Jesus Christ, I will still be under its spell. TV is very powerful in many ways. Here, I can say Thomas is absolutely right. Cut it OFF!!! Use that free time to study and work hard. Merilee says the Walton family do not pay taxes. This makes me the most angry out of everything I have read on this board. Jesus told us to “render unto Caesar what is Caesar and to God what is God’s.” These people claim to be Christians yet they are not following a basic Christian rule. In Matthew 15:7-9, Jesus quotes Isaiah 29:13 to the hypocritical Pharisees. If what Merilee says is true, these people definitely fit into the same category. I know everyone on this board, believer or not, dislikes hypocrites. Hypocrisy is very sickening and I don’t like it. Therefore, not only are the Walton family hypocrites, they are damaging the U.S. economy by not paying their taxes. I can honestly say, that the United States have a great system in which the taxes of the people are put to great use and are not 50% of the American workers paychecks (I believe the U.K. taxes near this percentage on their workers). The Walton family are doing a huge disservice to the country they call home if they truly don’t pay their taxes. What am I trying to say? Yes, this family has horrible business practices but we have been give the power to make wealth by God. Let us study, work hard, and improve our lives. Thank you.

    I have read many of the comments’ and everyone has a right to their opinion ,weather they agree or disagree! Sam Walton and his brother worked their way up and earned their Wealth and that is part of the American Dream. The Walton Family (2nd Generation) born into Multiple Billions’ truly don’t know what it is to go without! How would they know what Hunger is, if they have NEVER experienced Hunger. The Majority of People know from” Experience” and I believe Rich People suffer as well as Poor People EXCEPT in different ways! I believe that we ALL have Hurts, Losses, Tears, Fears’ and that Others’ can’t relate to what we are going through or what we have Experience! I am NOT taking either side because there are different perspectives. I do believe that “To Whom Much is Given, Much is Required” and out of a $148.7 Billion Dollar Worth ,the Walton Family could NOT spend that amount of money on themselves throughout Multiple Generations. I was under the impression that Sam Walton was a “Believer” and he Gave!!! I also KNOW if it is in you to GIVE …You Will Give regardless of what you have; A little or a lot !!! My Pray is that the Walton Family take the Wealth that God has given them and use it to Blesses Other’s. One Billion is a Blessing : $148 Billion WOW!!!

  8. Ken says:

    I’ve only barely skimmed through these posts and quickly saw that a great many of them were people full of excuses and blaming others. I stand with Thomas and the last two letters he wrote. Amen and amen. Stop blaming others for your heartaches. Everybody agrees that greed is bad. But each man will have to answer to his maker for greed. You can put in laws to attempt to protect victims of the greedy but no law can change a man’s heart if he is greedy. At the end of the day – if one works hard and never gives up – reward will come in due time. It has been proven too many times during the history of man. One can be bitter and blame others for his or her own failures but in all honesty – most people just want an excuse to stop trying. So stop blaming everybody else. If someone puts a road block in front of you. Find a way around it. Dig a tunnel….get in a helicopter and fly over it – do whatever it takes. Stop living your life blaming others and through excuses. And stop envying and believing that because other people are wealthy they must be evil. You do understand they are made of the same stuff as you don’t you? Men are all the same. Last thing. After it’s all said and done. Jesus is the answer. Period. He will show you the true way. And His ways have always been to abstain from envy, greed, lawlessness, bitterness, wrath, jealousy, and all the hoards of other practices that have separated man from the good path and from walking joyfully with his Creator. Stop making excuses and begin living your life to the fullest right now. Today!!!!!

    Where’s the information about Sam and Helen on this site?

  10. GFS says:

    People keep slavishly worshiping capitalism and putting Sam up on a pedestal as one of the founders of the American dream and then denouncing critics of the Waltons as just being jealous.
    You can respect Sam for chasing his dream, selling quality American-made goods at reasonable prices, and making a success of his business.
    However, the rest of the Waltons didn’t work hard for their billions, they just happened to be spat out of the right vagina or married into the family.
    They spend their days lobbying and scheming to sell shoddy goods to people that can’t afford better because they work for poor paying employers such as Walmarts et al. The I’m all right jacks spout guff about finding a better job if you don’t like the money. However, not only are a large portion of their workforce lacking the skills to ‘get a better job’ but also Walmarts’ competitors are every bit as tight-fisted – because these people have a monopoly on wages for the average Joe and the game is rigged.

  11. Jim in Arkansas says:

    It seems that this blog is nothing but a bash on the Waltons. Is this group made up of a consortium of large Target shareholders? Is this really nothing but corporate warfare? Why aren’t there any articles on what good WalMart has done, the economic prosperity that the Waltons have created and the newfound ability of millions of American to improve their families lives through affordable products and medications? Seems pretty one sided to me. And for that, one has to ask, WHY?

  12. Isaac says:

    I work at Walmart….. compared to other positions in my town of 15,000 people fast food, stores, factories they all pay about the same which is min wage. It would be nice and a good image for Walmart to pay a little bit more above min wage and I know it wouldn’t make a difference to their profits if they did, the store i work at takes about $200,000 a day, not sure and don’t care how much of that is profit. This is not my ideal job, but it is a job, and I need one to live. FYI I am underemployed at walmart and so are many other employees but finding that perfect job takes time and I can’t live without an income.
