The Walmart Family are worth $144 Billion ($144 THOUSAND MILLIONS) This year the government is giving them back $6 BILLION in tax breaks. That is $6 THOUSAND MILLIONS for one family in tax breaks.
Thanks, Wall Street and Friends who MAKE THIS SHIT HAPPEN while children are hungry RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA.
CHILDREN OF THEIR EMPLOYEES who make so little, they qualify for SNAP(food assistance). Call me crazy, but if you’re working a 40 hour work week, you should get paid well enough to not need SNAP.
And, AND… How much food would that buy?! And they already have a fleet of semis that could take food to shelters and missions all over the country!!!
They don’t even have to do it because of philanthropy or altruism… It would actually be fantastic publicity!
I know we’re not the only family that is trying to break the Walmart habit. Yeah, we have to make more stops, but it feels like we’re trying to do what we can on our little footprint even though it seems like a drop in the ocean.
This is a very real Saturday morning for us.
