Poppycock! If you pay the employees more money, then your bottom line decreases. Therefore to recoup those losses (however insignificant in your opinion), Walmart would raise prices. I'm not interested in that.

Secondly, you underestimate the intelligence of single mothers and their ability to find meaningful work at a decent wage. If the only place she can find a job is Walmart, then maybe she deserves what she currently earns.
