If you are in the 1% richest people on the planet which you have to make over $870,000 to be. You probably would not be working there.

First of all, you can never trust ladders. You can never be too careful. Second... What the hell are you talking about #30? I almost trust you less than the ladders themselves!

The moment you started with "today at Walmart", i knew this was destined to be tragic. FYL indeed. Hope you still have your job...

Well, people working at Walmart are at the bottom of the ladder anyway.

People working at Walmart have a job with one of the largest, most stable companies in the world, which is more than you can say about a lot of people. Get your judgmental head out of your judgmental ass.

No, your argument that people who work at Walmart are somehow less than other people is not only invalid, but stupid, judgmental, asinine, and in all other ways ridiculous. Last I checked, Walmart is #1 in the Fortune 500. That isn't irrelevant. Your stupid arguments, on the other hand, are.

Spoken like a true 1%-er, Doc! Walmart is on the Fortune 500 because the owners and high ups make enough money to make the list. It's regular employees make the largest corporation whose employees are on some sort of welfare. Yes, respect for anyone whose working, but I wouldn't wish a Walmart job on my worst enemy.

I feel like Doc's comment was a knee-jerk reaction to impending negativity against Walmart employees because the first comment of this thread was nothing more than a snide remark. So let's just leave it at this, which is the point that soared past us all: Job is hardly the measure of a man. I've met dealers more respectable than most everyone I know and doctors who act like they're dealers themselves. Drop the whole thing, it's not worth debating.

No, none of my comments are knee-jerk. It was a reaction to this moron considering people who work at Walmart to be "bottom of the ladder". Bubblegrunge, I realise the corporate policies there aren't great, and the job isn't great either. But thinking that someone is a lesser person based on a job is elitist and nothing less, and I will NOT apologise for defending people who do an honest day's work and deserve respect for it, no matter whom they work for.

I guess I'm at the bottom of the ladder as well. As a Walmart associate I was quickly recognized for my hard work by getting promoted. I get full time hours on a set schedule, health benefits, paid vacations, and quarterly bonuses. Definitely the worst job ever. (Yes that was sarcasm)

Walmart is the worst place to work, unless you're a manager. All they do is bitch about how everything isn't perfect and then go laugh with their manager friends. Ours do it all the time.

Sounds like he meant bottom of the ladder economically, rather than socially. This is based on the way he defended his comments. I'm just glad other people recognize his comment was more of a joke in possibly poor taste instead of a declaration about the social status of Walmart employees. If you all wish to continue this imaginary class battle, be my guest.

Starting out at walmart, I may be inclined to agree, but what other company setting like walmart(say a grocery store or outlet store) gives you the potential to move up, gives you 40 hours with full-time benefits, gives decent yearly pay raises(40-50cents), and a quarterly incentive? I worked for a large grocery chain...no potential to move up, no bonuses, no full time or benefits, and certainly no pay increases worth a damn...
