(See in situ)


When people take a job at Walmart - they know they are getting a

fairly low paying but very popular and desirable job.

If they need proof about the desireablity - all they need to do is look at the constant stream of people coming in to apply for the same job.

If after they get in - they expect it to be a cushy job with high pay and great benefits - they are simply living in dream land.

Its like buying a trailer in a trailer park and then one day waking up and complaining that you have no private indoor swimming pool, you don't have your own horse stables and no butler is waiting to draw your bathwater. Sorry, but thats not what you signed up for.

Walmart's whoe strategy it to be the low cost seller. It does that by being ruthless with suppliers (who put up with it to sell at Walmart at all - they have a choice too) and by paying low wages.

If Walmart were to change its pay structure it would NO LONGER be the low cost seller - and people would shop elsewhere.

Again - don't sign on to live in a trailer and then expect it to be a mansion.
