Re: The American way - I want it for nothing, damn the consequences

Excuse me? You wrote that long and hard to justify why saving a marginal amount at a corporation like Walmart is good thing? Here's something for you to bite on - maybe if Walmart wasn't out there neglecting their workers, giving them substandard benefits, shutting down stores where workers tried to organize, sending the trade deficit off a cliff, and changing consumerer perceptions for a generation, then MAYBE you'd realize that all I was trying to get accross is the tremendous weight that scab outfits like Walmart are for the American worker. I SUPPORT every small worker, ever situation you listed above, but I cannot stand the people whining and moaning over their $5 keyboard without having the slightest clue of the the consequences.

Consumers will have to spend marginally more, and then MAYBE, just MAYBE, the entire way the economy functions will change, the benefits spilling over into every situation you listed above. But throwing bones to your employees to keep cheap imported chinese goods at bargain basement prices is doing no-one good. You may think it's helping out "the single mother", "the student", but it will come back to bite them in the end.
