nickled and dimed
Last year in my hometown an all holy "super-walmart" rolled its construction into town and took over an entire city block of our town, turning marshland into a desolate industrial area that would soon be occupied with dirty cars, run away carts, angry shoppers, disgruntled workers, and unbelievable savings!! I was not a fan of this development.
After reading nickled and dimed it became clear to me that corporations like this are money guzzling machines. They pay little to have alot of their products made in 3rd world countries around the world, pay their workers jack shit to also save money, and stay open 24/7 as to make as much of the green stuf as possible. These major corporations are eating away at America. They encourage low wages that aren't liveable and working hours that making even the hardest of the hardcore blue collar workers cringe. Nobody can actually make a living off of this as proved in the reading. Shouldn't that say something about large corporations taking over small business's and our nation's current minimum wage??
