Haha. I have had one Phillips TV that has treated me pretty well. I'm not going to lie, I own a 55inch LED LCD Smart TV by Samsung. I didn't research their business practices until after the purchase however.

i fail to see the relevance wrt what pharmacies do on holidays. if anyone's spinning, it's whoever keeps bringing up occupations which are necessary 24/7, 365, and comparing them to retailers, particularly in a society that guarantees paid time off to government employees and rich people. not sure who that could be though

Well specifically in regards to Walmart, which i think that was what we were discussing, most Walmarts, and definitely all three in the Wilmington area have pharmacies, grocery sections, automotive sections, and yes even retail sections that verywell could have items a lot of consumers would need even on a holiday...

But regardless of that, if Walmart is open on holidays (which they are, except Christmas) and you take a job there... YOU HAVE TO WORK ON HOLIDAYS.

I think you keep throwing around supply and demand but I'm not sure it applies to low paying jobs.

You may think that Wal-Marts wages should be higher. You can disagree with my conservative political views.

However, if you think that supply and demand is not the primary factor in determining the market wage for a position and skillset, you absolutely know nothing about economics.....that you can be assured of.

I have a double major in Accounting and Economics with an MBA in International Business and Finance. I assure you that I DO know what I am talking about.

It is not just Wal-Mart that pays low wages. It is most retail establishments that are paying the same wages. Should the minimun wage be raised? Very likely and employees should make their voices heard on that matter.

But, if you think that many companies pay wages higher than the market value for a particular skillset, you are kidding yourself.

All wages are basically set by what the market dictates. That hold true for a cashier just as it does for a professional athlete, lawyer, movie star, and yes...even high paid CEO's. And yes, I do think most CEO's for large corporations are frastically overpaid.

And for the record, I hate Wal-Matt for many of their corporate practices.
