Gem of the day

Walmart is a case study in what the Occupy Wall Street movement is trying to raise awareness of.

Last year, four members of Walmart founder Sam Walton's family made the Forbes list of America's 10 richest people.

The majority of Walmart's workers with children live below the federal poverty line. Walmart workers earn on average 12.4% less than retail workers as a whole, and many actually rely on welfare to survive.

That's the kind of mind-blowingly unfair contrast which means this business as usual can't last.
