    What? They're not waiting to see what the government is going to d0 re the tax argument before hiring more people? Another republican talking point rebuked.

    It's called a JOB, and it's an OPPORTUNITY to EARN MONEY.

    It's called a JOB, and it's an OPPORTUNITY to EARN MONEY.

    Unfortunatley our government (consisting of both Democrats and Republicans) has made it far to easy for those who consider themselves above being a "lowly" WalMart employee to sit at home, collect unemployment, and complain about jobs that "only" pay minimum wage or slightly above.

    Then there is the economic benefit to the community of creating other jobs during the construction phase and the local sales taxes generated after the store goes into operation.

    It's a very simple fact that without 3600 WallyWorlds and 600 SAM"S CLUBS our local, regional, state, and national unemployment rates would be higher and our sales tax revenues would be lower.

    So, tell me again, what's the problem with WalMart?

    What's up with all the haters? I think you need to go back and learn about the fundamentals of capitalism. WM is good for the county.

    Pay rate? Good luck. It will be slightly better than minimum wage. The real question is how you will be treated as an "associate". Been there, done that, got the T-shirt, no thanks.

    wonder what the hourly pay rate is???
