    Their employees's children often qualify for the free lunch program at school and state supported Medicaid-type programs. All of these programs are tax subsidies for the poor, and Walmart does not need such subsidies.  This is a corporate mindset that takes advantage of it's workers at the expense of taxpayers. I really don't know how you fix it, except to shine a lot of light on the issue. But there is somethng intrinsically wrong when a company's bottom line is as huge as Walmart's, its owners are as wealthy as they are, but their employees still have to turn to the Federal and State governments for subsistence, and there doesn't seem to be anything in place to make the company repay the taxpayers.
