Guess how much more mac and cheese would cost at Walmart if they paid their employees a living wage

By Abraham Piper


On average, 40 employees at a Walmart store use food stamps. Then guess where they spend them?

Yep, Walmart.

This video shows how Walmart is “the single biggest beneficiary of the food stamp economy” and then shows how it would cost them virtually nothing to change this and instead pay all their employees enough that none of them qualify for food stamps. In the process, taxpayers would save $300 million every year.

If they did this, taking Mac and Cheese as an example product, guess how much prices would increase for Walmart shoppers…

Will they do this? Of course not. But the number crunching and ensuing indignation is still fascinating…
