Look, if there is a small, remote town ... but it's big enough to support a Walmart ... then there are other jobs around too.

Not necessarily and probably not many.

Do you know how many people who live in rural towns drive 30-60 miles to get to work? Tons of them. Because that is where the jobs are. But they want to shop closer to home, hence Walmart.
