Stingy

Wal-Mart said Thursday that for its fiscal year ending Jan. 31, it contributed $1.1 billion to its domestic hourly workers through profit-sharing and 401(k) accounts, stock purchase plans and merchandise discounts.

Hmm.

Well, that goes a long way towards explaining why so many people out there reflexively hate Wal-Mart.

That company is dishing out so much dinero many of its people don't even qualify anymore for welfare or other government assistance programs.

Tragic.

Nice satire Jayson! But don't you think Walmart's getting a bit too socialist here? When working people don't qualify for welfare, they're obviously being paid far too much.
