This image is flying around the Internet. It is in a Walmart store. Why don’t businesses pay their employees a LIVING wage? Walmart isn’t the only one, either. There are many businesses, including state colleges and universities, which refuse to pay a LIVING wage to their employees, especially part-time employees. This is shameful! Thanksgiving and the winter holidays are supposed to be a time to celebrate family, giving, and the harvest. There is NO harvest for many. It is a terrible indictment of this country’s greed and thoughtlessness, when a child goes without ANY day, but especially on a holiday. Our forefathers would be disappointed.
