"Wal-Mart dispatched 10 truckloads of water, 20,000 batteries and 20,000 emergency kits to Baton Rouge. It handed over two of its buildings in Louisiana to emergency-relief workers and created a message board system on its Web site for anyone trying to reach family members."How very generous of them, if only the government health system wasn't spending over $100 Million to subsidize their employees without health care there might be some more money to prevent the spread of enteric waterbourne diseases there. Of course the tax incentives they whipsaw out of local communities to site their stores also takes large amounts of money from local public safety resources.
((( if only the government health system wasn't spending over $100 Million to subsidize their employees without health care)))Yeah, I forgot that the folks who come to work at Walmart are leaving high-paying jobs as doctors and CPA's to do it. Or maybe Walmart mostly hires poor people and old people, two groups that typically have thier heath insurance covered by the government anyway. As for the tax incentives, the local communities want them there for a reason or they wouldn't allow that sort of thing. CC
