On Your Way to WalMart? Think about This First

CostCo

WALMART frequently rationalizes its low-wages and poor treatment of employees on the grounds that that is what is required to run a successful business. Slaveholders in 1860 used similar arguments. Facts suggest that a prosperous enterprise can pay decent wages and provide benefits. Costco is a working example, it pays higher wages, provides benefits and recognizes a Union. It does this all the while making a profit and providing inexpensive goods for consumers. It can be done, it should be done.
