“You obviously didn't look at the links that showed how crappy people get paid at these stores.
But why start letting the facts get in your way?
Walmart's exclusion of part-time workers in its public wage data likely skews the average upward. The company says a "majority" of its workers are full-time but it does not disclose exactly how many, making a true average wage unknowable. The site Glassdoor.com, which is based on employee reviews of companies, pegs the average sales associate pay at $8.86 per hour, or a salary of $17,841.”

“You obviously are trying to change the topic. The article was talking about Thanksgiving workers, and the Walmart where I live was paying them 18 (time and a half)”
“It was very interesting to see the Broadway version. I quite enjoyed seeing the characters of Max Detweiller and the Baroness be developed a bit more and especially the Mother Abbess.
I agree that the acting was a bit flat, but Underwood did a beautiful job on a very challenging vocal part. There was no chemistry between her and Moyer, and at times it felt a bit amateurish.
If not her, then WHO? Perhaps an "unknown" ingenue from Broadway, but producers so often sacrifice the perfect performer for a big name to draw huge viewerships.
Carrie Underwood did a perfectly respectable job and deserves plenty of praise. This was a very daunting task and I'm glad I tuned in.”

“She did not do a respectable job if her acting sucked! I would rather give a pass on the singing but I want good acting. That's why studios would dub great actors; the acting was more important! There are plenty of actresses who can sing. You are doing the Sound of Music as misjustice by saying no one would watch if you didn't have Carrie Underwood. People would have tuned in for a really good cast and a chance to sing along!”

“Who? Anne Hathaway.”

“Myles von Trapp Derbyshire is the great grandson of Maria von Trapp, he wished Anne Hathaway had been cast in the lead. I'm not so sure about that....maybe.”
“I am totally with you. At least with some restaurants that are high-end, servers can make generous tips. But on the low end, the McD employees make very little.
We can thank the Restaurant Association, of which Herman Cain is a member, for lobbying for the hideous wages. No other business thinks it's ok to not pay their employees and to leave it up to its patrons. It's outrageous.”
