I think it’s WELL past the time of blindly following sound bites folks:

LET’S compare ALL retailers – for instance: #TARGET: Target declined to disclose details about its compensation and benefits, but labor groups and former/current employees of Target in the Twin Cities say the retailer sometimes pays less than Wal-Mart.

Target pays between $6.25 an hour to $8 an hour for entry-level, hourly positions in its Twin Cities stores, according to a recent survey of local Target workers by the UFCW. That’s in line with what Wal-Mart pays in this market, though some starting-level Wal-Mart workers can earn $9 to $10 an hour, the UFCW said.  Is Target turning down Food Stamps or their employees who use them???? Costco pays no more – but doesn’t accept Food Stamps – which is worse.  Chico’s  (One of the high end clothiers for women): $8.00 per hour – with the average customer paying $200-$1,000 per visit. KOHL’s, another Big Box store: $7.25 per hour – with no benefits.

From the StarTribune 2005!!!  (Please be informed)

Unfortunately things have not changed much, or at all, since 2005…..So… has the Walmart media frenzy been cleverly created to divert our attention to what is being practiced everywhere in the Retail industry (and even more so within the REALLY HIGH END retailers)????

IF YOU WANT TO SEE CHANGE – BE INFORMED and CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATOR!
