Why should Wal Mart buy products from a higher priced source , when they can buy the identical product cheaper , from someone else ? Granted they may be coming from foreign sources , but why is that ? Could it be that the companies that used to be in the USA were taxed to a point where they moved offshore , so they could remain in business ? Could it be that the unions , with their "Me Me " attitude , just drove up the wages and benefits to a point where these companies had to raise prices , in order to remain in business ? Could it be that these inflated prices made their products too spendy for a large portion of the general public ? There really isn't an easy answer to the problem . We definitely need tax reform , in this country , in order to make it more profitable for a company to stay in the USA . This alone would not only bring lower prices , but would bring jobs back home , that had been driven off , because of taxes and labor costs . I fall into the group that has to price shop . Not because I particularly like doing that , but because I simply don't have the coins to pay premium prices . Wal Mart is filling a nitch in the business world . If you can afford to pay top prices , more power to you , but don't bad mouth Wal Mart . They are trying to make a living , just like the rest of us , and if it wasn't for them , I and millions of others , like me would be worse off than we already are .

I know I have said this before (my sister is a store manager for wallyworld on the
west coast/over 20 yrs with them) and she can't stand them now...
but after 20yr what can you do, can't quit because people still have bills...
and as far as labor laws/part time... well hell every!!! every big company does the same...
Hell Disney is suppose to be a family base company... Bull #@!$ crap!!! I know a bunch
of company Disney has ruined... I also work for Disney for awhile and saw how the
Union works with Disney guess what Disney has cut back hours on everybody
and almost Everybody is a Part time worker with different hours every week...
Hell if Walt was alive today he would close the gates at Disney.... because that isn't
a family base company anymore....
Why did I jump off wally world....well because if you are going to bit#@ about one
company.... then yell and holler about all of them...
and again it all falls back on US!!.... quit buying at wallyworld if you believe they
are the only evil empire out there...LOL wallyworld doesn't have chit on Disney
when it comes to sh@#$ their workers.... and people still paid close to $100
for a one day pass ..... and we are bit#hing about Wallyworld.... LOL...
and no I didn't jump off topic> others did first... My first reply> Walmart has all my
fishing needs at any hour> and if the local BT shops are going to charge a extra
$3 (or higher) on sinkers/hooks/line/leaders... then i'm buying at wallyworld plus
if need be, I can buy a host of other chit to make my fishing trip run smoothly...
Also I have close to 1hr drive to the coast> I pass a handful of OPEN wally worlds..
by the time I get to the coast all the BT are closed...
I know I'm a Ahole for not giving back to the BT guy.... but hmmmmmm I have bills
to paid also... and if I can save a few $$$ here and there... then guess what i'm going
to do it... I'm crazy that way
