I've been to Walmart twice in the last 2-3 weeks...

... and both times found exactly what I was looking for... good quality, good price. Am I a bad person? My reading of the evidence is that when Walmart comes to town, working folks' wages go down but the prices they pay for stuff go down enough to compensate. I love the rainbow of people I see and hear at my Mountain View store. I don't think Walmart competes with mom and pop in Mt. View... more likely Target and Kohl's. But if I'm going to continue to shop there, maybe it's about time I ponied up some money to UFCW's organizing efforts. Everyone deserves a living wage.
