Walmart's Taxpayer Supported Practices Means Subtraction of 100,000 Teacher Jobs
Original post made by Demoralized Educator, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Apr 15, 2014
The choice is obvious. Just what do we want? More better paid teachers? Or more impoverished Walmart workers needing food stamps as a survival need for themselves and their families? I mean, truly, just how dear to our hearts do we hold the pennies saved in exchange for stale vegetables and shortages of cashiers at the registers? Hint: given that your tax dollars go towards supporting Walmart, the pennies you think you are saving are not really savings at all.
