Did you know that of the the US spent around 76 billion dollars in food stamps?  This video estimates that of that 76 billion dollars, around $300 million dollars goes to Walmart employees.

If Walmart really wants to “save money, live better,” they should just  raise its workers’ wages so that they no longer qualify for food stamps and save US taxpayers $300 million dollars each year!
