We all know how much the leftist love to trash successful companies like Wal-Mart. Of course, the obvious question is WHY?? These companies provide the very things that these people claim they support!
Walmart proves capitalism is better than socialism
A new report from Walmart documents its success in providing hundreds of thousands of Americans with great opportunities. It proves that capitalism is a moral force for good.
The statistics in Walmart’s Environmental, Social, and Governance Report, supported by third-party audits, tell the tale.
The average salary of a Walmart store owner is $175,000. And 75% of store managers started out at Walmart as hourly workers. Offering less-educated workers a chance at high-earning opportunities is the American dream defined.
About 44% of Walmart employees, and 33% of management, are people of color. I thought Democrats wanted more opportunity for minority Americans? Why do they hate Walmart so much?
About 55% of Walmart employees, and 43% of management, are women. “Walmart academy” offers on-the-job training so that employees are equipped with the skills to retain and gain work in the 21st century.
The report also notes that the average hourly wage of a full-time field associate is now $14.26, or $19.31 when total compensation benefits are figured in. That full compensation reflects Walmart’s offering of “health benefits starting at around $26 per pay period for all full and part-time associates who have worked an average of 30 hours per week over the past 12 mont
What does that have to do with socialism?
While Democrats love to present Walmart as the apex of capitalist immorality, the company actually stands in stark proof of the opposite. Conservatives must own the moral argument here.
It’s not just that Walmart provides economic opportunity, it’s that Walmart provides that opportunity while also providing a critical service to broader society — namely, the provision of a wide range of goods at low prices. Walmart is able to provide these things thanks to an economy made stronger by by capitalist reform.
This raises a question: Why do Democrats want to break what’s working?
Why do they want to tax or break up companies that are providing jobs and happiness to so many? Why do they pretend to know how to spend other people’s money better than the people who earned it?
Why do they seek minimum wage laws that price out lower-skilled and younger workers before they can even get a step into the job market? Incidentally, do Democrats ever notice how these laws incentivize accelerated automation?
As I say, conservatives must own this message. Capitalism, lawfully managed, is humanity’s greatest experiment in economic morality. Socialism is a joke of varying but always sad degrees.
These are the things – those high-lighted – that these people claim they want for the American worker should receive and yet, they bash and try to close down the very companies that provide them.
As I have often stated before, these people don’t give a darn about the people — it only their socialist agenda that is important to them!
