minimum wage

Mr. Moore,

Nice job defending Walmart today on Hardball.  I’m sure you know that the average sales associate makes 8.81.  According to you, that’s just fine, because that’s how many management people started out.  I’m sure you also know that’s below the poverty line if you are making that wage and married.  By the way, nice pivot from answering the question about the minimal increase to 12 bucks an hour.  I also notice you were silent on the cost of tax payer dollars to subsidize Walmart.  employees.  But hat’s okay, because that’s the free market, right?

One thought on “minimum wage

  1. I’m sure you also know that’s below the poverty line if you are making that wage and married.

    The problem then is not the minimum wage, but why is someone married (possibly with kids) working at Walmart as a sales associate?

    The extent of your needs does not dictate the value of work being performed.
