What Can I Do?

-- by Dave Johnson

Wake-Up Wal-Mart: Always High Costs,

One 200-person Wal-Mart store may result in a cost to federal taxpayers of $420,750 per year – about $2,103 per employee. Specifically, the low wages result in the following additional public costs being passed along to taxpayers PER STORE:

* $36,000 a year for free and reduced lunches.
* $42,000 a year for Section 8 housing assistance.
* $125,000 a year for federal tax credits and deductions for low-income families.
* $100,000 a year for the additional Title I expenses.
* $108,000 a year for the additional federal health care costs of moving into state children's health insurance programs.
* $9,750 a year for the additional costs for low income energy assistance.

NO WONDER their prices are so low -- WE'RE making up the difference through our taxes!! And THEY'RE pocketing the profits!

I pledge allegiance to the Price Tag of the United States of MEXA/CHINA and to the Great WAL/MART for which it stands.

One Nation Undermined, Devisable with Management’s view of NonUnion liberty and Injustice for ALL.

Low Price tag guarantee:

We buy from off shore to cut the throat of American Labor.

Expected Consequence:

China will Buy us (USA) with out firing a shot. (Like Japan bought Oahu.)

Even the Playing Field:

Look for a Union Label or products made in the United States of America.

While you can still find them!

Out Sourcing is Un-American Trading!
