  •  The math has been done. (6+ / 0-)

    It's just your idea of "much more" seems relative. Perhaps it is not much more to you, but to a person earning $22,000/year, a 22% increase in pay of $5,000 would make a huge difference. The Walton's would make less profit per worker, but they would still walk away with 7 billion in profit. You almost seem to excuse them for their lack of ethics. Boeing certainly pays it's workers a living wage, as does AT&T. So, I'm not sure why they are even being mentioned. I do not wish to slam a company for being profitable. I am talking about compensating workers with fair, living wages so they are not dependent on the government for subsidies.
