Extra Credit: Walmart Compares D.C. ‘Living Wage’ Bill To Soviet Russia

In this article, Walmart compares the new bill to the U.S.S.R. However, Walmart should be the one being compared to the communist-era in Russia based on the unfair treatment of employees in an economic stance. They’ve been paying their employees a lower salary than a living wage which is at least minimum wage. What Walmart doesn’t realize is if they pay their employees a living wage, they will have more jobs, and even bigger profits for their business.
