Government subsidized salaries

“A single 300-person Walmart Supercenter store in Wisconsin likely costs taxpayers at least $904,542 per year.”  Nice Statistic – one that reflects the Federal Benefits provided because the workers are underpaid.  Thus Walmart profits are basically the result of stealing from the Federal government – they steal the money that should go to paying a living wage to their workers… and compared to online pricing, and related costs of shopping, Walmart isn’t cheap.

Wouldn’t it be nice if certain employers actually paid a living wage – one high enough to keep its people off food stamps?
