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.

Soooooooo... before the Walmart came to support their shopping desires... there were NO jobs in the town? They ALL commuted? Think they would be thankful for the local jobs then, instead of whining about the Walmart wages.
