Walmart and Amazon are actually pointing fingers at each other?! These corporate psychopaths need to be strung up! Didn't he only raise his minimum wages only after public pressure, and then cut some beneficial programs for employees to counter that cost?! How much money do you need to siphon up, Bezos? The attitudes of these pigs at the top are truly loony as fuck!

Minimum is honestly a bandage concept right now. it needs to be linked to inflation and cost-of-living, while simultaneously gathering appropriate funds from higher income persons and most importantly, stop corporate welfare.

It's almost like the people employed on minimum wage aren't being productive enough to be profitable at a higher wage....

raising the minium wage creates an artificial barrier of entry into the job market. I really wish more people could understand this.

Unless wages are raised voluntarily. Jeff could afford to pay more when he shuffled some of the employee benefits around.

That is an extremely factually ignorant statement. Employees and employers are in a mutually beneficial VOLUNTARY relationship. Neither is forced to be there and both have the opportunity to negotiate the rate they feel the service is worth. It's called free market and it is 100% driven by supply and demand.

Not a fan of Walmart, but he's right. Tax loopholes are out of control, it's time to close them. You don't have to raise taxes if you just eliminate loopholes.

this is a chrony business move that will completely shut out small businesses and make it impossible for them to start up. It's just so he can eliminate new competition before it even starts. Dirty.

And to put his competitors out of business. the real reason he can afford to yell about raising minimum wage is because he doesn't have to pay robots.

because Walmart never accepts tax incentives... Walmart can eat a big fat D, can't wait for Amazon to put em out of business. They pay their employees nothing and then the tax payer has to foot the bill for their employees' food stamps which are then spent at WALMART. Otherwise known as, corporate welfare.
Hannibal 3 months
So which is worse, not paying anything or not paying enough?
Rocky LeBlanc 3 months
I agree. We need to end entitlements. Full stop. Get rid of any corruption incentives.

Amazon has a point, why pay federal taxes when your workers can pay it for you?

DivineDawn 3 months

It's an online highly automated business that has some of the highest revenues in the world isn't at the expense of other retailers. But sure challenge them to carry a financial millstone.
