Protesters Call For Walmart To Pay A Living Wage

JeanMarc, I would agree with you except that by paying low wages, Walmart is the beneficiary of corporate welfare. Their employees qualify for food stamps, subsidized housing and free or reduced healthcare. Therefore, I think it is perfectly reasonable that the government require them (and any other company that thinks they can exploit government loopholes to pay low wages) to pay a living wage. Ironically, the Walmart workforce is living proof against Republican rhetoric that poor people don't want to work. They do - and for a pittance.

Tell KPBS What Matters To You This Election

What's the most important issue to you this election?

Women's health and the war against the poor and middle class

Which candidate in any election are you most excited about?

Elizabeth Warren.

How do you think the outcome of this election will change San Diego in the future?

The mayoral race may if Filner wins. Perhaps hotel owners and developers will finally lose their grip on the city council. Probably not, but here's hoping.

Have you changed your mind about anything this election? If so, what?

No. Everyone is showing the same colors they always have.
