I love how the interview ended on the scare tactic of raising prices at Walmart.
Why am I not buying it?
1. Did you know that low-wage workers make up a portion of the people living on Food Stamps? And who pays for that? Not Walmart.
2. I have a friend who used to work at the local Walmart.
The pay was not that great, and there was no room for this college graduated individual to move as far as a better paying position was concerned.
3. Have you ever wondered, on days like Saturdays, why all of the check out lanes are not running?
When I worked retail in college, part of planning the shifts involved making sure there would be enough coverage for days you know are peak days. I have a hard time believing Walmart doesn't understand it's peak times. It's been in business for too long.
