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!
