Wal-Marts of America Powerful rich and greedy these are the characteristics that define one of the most soulless corporations in small-town America Wal-Mart Wal-Mart is the largest private employer in the United States with nearly 900000 people working for Walton Enterprises One of the most acknowledged keys to Wal-Marts formidable success is its lower-than low cost of doing business On a daily basis people will come to Wal-mart to bargain for the best buy Every aspect of Wal-Mart is straining to keep costs down profits up and growth exploding Fourteen years ago Wal-mart did not sell groceries Now thanks to their Sams Club and Supercenters Wal-mart is the nations largest grocery chain a worldwide giant that is so antiunion with 3020 stores across the United States Not one single Wal-Mart in America is unionized Wal-Mart has indeed taken over the retail world However the question is vital what happens when Wal-Marts come to small towns in America When Wal-Marts come to small towns they destroy jobs rather than create them the local economy suffers downtown dies taxpayers pay for the disaster and then it moves on to plague other nearby towns Wal-Mart profits well over 35 billion a year Wal-Mart was a company that promised jobs and adequate benefits to small rural towns However Wal-Marts low wages and inadequate benefits devastate wages and conditions for all working Americans For every two jobs created by a Wal-Mart store the community loses three Furthermore local businesses are destroyed and community living standards get lowered when Wal-Mart moves into the neighborhood Wal-Mart workers make at least an average of 3 less than union supermarket jobs 2 per hour less than all supermarket jobs and 1 per hour less than the average retail wage For a single mother with a child that works in Wal-Mart she would earn about 11500 a year working well over 30 hours This would be nearly 2000 below the poverty line
