    The two Walmarts I went to in California (Oakland and San Leandro) were the worst.

    It is healthier for people to work for money and eliminate the cash benefit part of welfare, if the person isn't disabled to the point that work is not practical. That way, the only assistance the person is receiving is Medicaid and Food Stamps/EBT. It saves the taxpayers a lot of money that way, and some of the people eventually get better jobs as time goes on and get off of welfare.
    Working a few hours a week at Wal Mart will help that family that is only receiving EBT & Medicaid receive a very large EIC benefit during the tax season.


    I know families that receive an $8000 check from the IRS every spring that don't pay one dime in federal income tax.

    I have a stack of yard signs in my garage which advertise tax refunds for parasites. I drove around pulling them up one night during tax season.

    Actually, removing illegal signs by the side of the road is no more illegal than picking up any other litter.

    You must look up the concept of authoritative sources some time. Seriously. The Kos article was a collection of union talking points, Alan Grayson is a crank with zero

    Imagine how much worse things will be when they pull out. Vacant lots aren't known for their customer service or product choices.

    It's not a back track; it was reasonable for the reader to assume that if I rode around collecting signs that they obviously were not of the permanent, legal, and on the property of the business type signs. Surely this problem exists where you live as well.

    Ah , yes, doing your impression of a DUer, I see. Just as one doesn't expect to find truthful articles about illegal immigration from the New York Times, one doesn't expect to find truthful articles about labor and Walmart from Town Hall dot com. I don't know why, it's simply the way it is.

    Yes, but there are sources that are not, shall we say, completely insane or partisan? For example, an article on welfare for WalMart employees might come from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, or at least cite it, or perhaps they could go to the USDA and see how many WalMart employees receive food assistance. The articles contain no objective information, just assertions by partisans, with no supporting factual evidence. The "studies" cited by KOS were done by groups that have an obvious leftist slant, and have no credibility. Even when some of the articles cited evidence, they spun it. For example, one Berkeley study claimed that WalMart employees cost the state of California billions of dollars in "safety net" programs, but made no mention of the fact that those programs are ridiculously easy to sign on to and that the state encourages gainfully employed people to do so. Thus, the study is complaining that the state, which has dangled these programs out in an attempt to foster dependency on government, has succeeded in getting employed people to take the bait. That's not an indictment of WalMart, but of Gerry Brown.
