Minimum wage in Oakland, CA is $12 and change.$12.29? Some pain in the accountant number.
SF (which might not have one in city limits) has a minimum wage of $15. Both include servers/tipped employees. So tipping is dropping off.

 

there's several states with minimum wage higher than $8.50, i was just pointing out that unless he lived in the one state where minimum wage was exactly $8.50, he must have been making better than minimum for where he was located.

Walmart is the worst run company on the planet.

 

I do not ever go there but I would venture to say that their "yearly profits" would dictate that they 

are indeed WELL RUN and efficient....just a guess

Incredible.  In 1985 I was making $2.50 an hour working at a grocery store.  (That's $5.66 adjusted for inflation.)  I bet automation will be the thing in SF in years to come.

I was making $10.80 per hour, capped at 40 paid (but overtime expected) in Colorado, five years ago.
The good folks at Taco Bell make more now, here.

I don't shop much at Walmart.. very rarely and for simple things like toilet paper and that's if I can't find it cheaper anywhere else (which is becoming rare, Walmart is getting expensive.) There are also places that will match Walmarts prices, if you ask. 95% of my groceries come from local farmers/Amish stores/my back yard/family owed butcher shops. The other 5% either some other shopping center. Walmart sales suck also. There clearance items are not really clearance either... for a few cent more I can buy new.

Each of the Walmart children are worth around 20 billion dollars. They have a personal bunker for the apocalypse that cost tens maybe hundreds of millions to build. Yet they still feel it's not cost effective to pay a livable wage or give health care. The employees themselves actuly contribute more to that. They can volunteer a portion of their pay check to go into a fund in case another employee has a family medical emergency. The Walmart kids gave $10,000 ONE time meanwhile the employees give millions when all added up. 10,000 is nothing to them, not even what a penny is to the common man. 10,000 is not even a lot of money in the American health care system. If you are lucky it pays for one or two days in an Emergency Room.

 

Because they are paid so little many employees still need goverment assistance like food stamps and they are encouraged to seek it by Walmart. I wonder if all these people who bitch about the people who get that help because they are "too lazy to work" understand things like this. Walmart actuly depends on the goverment to pay its employees or give a "hand out" as those who dislike social welfare programs would call it.

 

They use sweat shop labor and refuse to even agree to pay those people a few more cents a day which in a third world country is much more than in America. But that amount is obviously nothing for them. Even more nothing then 10,000.

 

They are everything that is wrong with American greed. I got to the top and fuck you for not being there too. But they rely on the idea that no one makes you work there and if you don't get paid enough it's kind of your own fault for not being qualified. Why does the company owe you anything? Just get a better job. Why don't you start you own business smart guy? Except it's not that easy.
