>>> a question for you. is it the holiday spirit or out outrage? one walmart store in ohio is collecting food for employees. they set up storage bins with a sign that read please donate food items here so that associates in need can enjoy thanksgiving dinner . now that sounds like an admission that walmart doesn't pay employees a living wage and that is a charge that dogged the company for years. walmart calls the food drive proof of its effort to take care of employees.
>> it's a big battle and debate there.
>> they're one of the most successful companies. money wise and the family that owns it you would think there would be an effort to help from higher up.
>> you hate to see someone get criticized for trying to help people in need but there's larger issue here and people know that.
>> yeah the minimum wage issue.
>> and walmart says they look at it as perhaps if there's a two-family home, the spouse lost a job so it's not, they believe on their shoulders.
