Than they're lucky there's even a Walmart for them to work at - seeing as how Walmart started in rural areas that other retailers didn't want to service.

Damn straight. The thing is, you can't compare pay/benefits in a rural small town store with what you might get at a union shop in NYC. They aren't going to be the same, but guess what? The price of living isn't the same either.

Look I'm from Arkansas. Walmart IS our small town mom and pop store. They made it big and now everyone hates them. That's the price of success.
