This truly is an evil empire, exploiting workers and destroying free enterprise everywhere it reaches. Every consumer, every union, and every decent business should make the complete destruction of Walmart a top priority in the coming years.
I have a confession to make—I once worked for Walmart Stores, Inc. Not in a Walmart store, but a Sam’s Club—which is owned by Walmart.
Now I’m sure many people have read many stories about the evils of Walmart, but you don’t see many about what it’s like to actually work for the company. Let me tell you, the company is nothing but the definition of what it is to be disgustingly greedy.
First, let’s look at the heirs to Walmart and their worth, about $90 billion—between 6 individuals. To put that money into a context, these 6 people could:
Give every citizen of Texas (25 million people) $3,600
Give every American (Over 314 million) just about $300
Make 90,000 people millionaires
Give $100,000 to 900,000 people
Buy 360,000 homes worth $250,000 each
Build all 32 NFL teams brand new $1 billion dollar stadiums—and still have $58 billion leftover
Give every human being on the planet $10—and still have $20 billion leftover
They’re also worth more than the combined net worth of 42% of the American population, or roughly 132 million people.
Yet the average Walmart employee makes $8.81 per hour. It would take the typical full-time Walmart employee 818,553 years to make as much as one heir to Walmart is worth ($15 billion on average).
So keep all of that in mind as I tell you about what it’s like working for these greedy bastards.
