I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Wal-Mart Jobs???

If WalMart Jobs Are So Terrible Then Why Do So Many People Want One?


If we listen to some of the activists on the WalMart issue then we’re told that the jobs at the store are just terrible.  The pay, the conditions are appalling: which leaves us with the mysterious question of why so many people seem to want a job at WalMart


The answer is of course that the WalMart jobs are better than the alternatives.  Those alternatives could be not having a job at all, working in fast food say, or at Target TGT +1.2% or wherever.  The one thing we do know is that those WalMart jobs are better than one or all of those alternatives.  This is revealed preferences in action: that people apply for the jobs means that they want them.
