Walmart. Always the lowest wages.

A Walmart in Ohio has set up donation boxes in its break room soliciting food gifts for, wait for it…Walmart employees. That’s right. The retail Goliath brought in $15.7 billion in profits last year, yet it can’t pay employees enough to feed themselves.

What’s interesting is how management at the store apparently doesn’t see the sad irony. If you were paying your workers a livable wage, donations wouldn’t be necessary. Once again, it is glaring glimpse of how oblivious the haves are about the plight of the have-nots. Republicans at the state and national levels consistently oppose raising the minimum wage based on bogus talking points supplied to them by industry lobbyists.

Merry Christmas, Walmart employees. Here’s a can of cranberry sauce.
