Many people hate Walmart. I just don't understand what you guys think the pay should be for an hourly retail worker, or whether it's actually better at most other comparable companies. If it is, good people will go work there.

It's not just the pay - it's also the way they treat employees. (Like scheduling someone for two shifts in one day that are each JUST short of being long enough to allow the employee to take a break). Maybe if they treated their employees as PEOPLE instead of easily replaceable parts it would be a better place to work.

Many people also don't like the way Wal-Mart treats suppliers.
