    Well I think all of these ceos must be working very hard to earn all that money
    but we should remember that everything has its time…every business good or bad will end up in the trash…we just have to wait….a lot of stores in have gone down….we just need someone to build a store and charge 50 cents less on everything..then its bye bye to all …and it will happen..I worked at walmart for three yrs and worked very very hard and its a skeleton staff and pple hate to come in sometimes..but we’ll see what happens in the coming yrs…they also tell staff how much walmart made that day but I can’t get 3 hrs of help…shame on all the waltons
