  •  Walmart (1+ / 0-)

    Mkt Cap:     235.00B

    Employees    2.2 million (2012)[1]

    Net income     US$ 15.699 billion (2012)[1]

    Meaning Walmart is earning less than 10,000 a year per employee.

    Ive actually never looked at it that way before.

    Short story from those numbers. It does not look like walmart can afford to pay its employees a livable wage.

    Just to give a point of reference IBM is generating the same income with 1/5th the people.
