Peter says: Walmart touts “Everyday Low Prices,” but we asked its customers to support ‘Everyday High Wages” instead. We posed as representatives of “15 for 15,” a make-believe organization advocating that Walmart raise prices by 15% and use the extra cash to pay its low-skilled workers $15 per hour. The surcharge would be added to customer’s bills at checkout, just like a gratuity at a restaurant. Not surprisingly few shoppers supported our cause. Even those who felt Walmart workers should be paid more did not want to pay higher prices themselves to make it possible. Those demanding higher wages for Walmart’s workers should consider the importance of low prices to Walmart’s customers.
The reaction from the left to my recent Walmart video does more to expose liberal intolerance and hypocrisy than my video itself. It’s actually so bad that no explanation can come close to doing it justice. In this video I claim that I never received hate mail before. I should have said that I never received true hate mail. I have received emails over the years from people who disagree with me, often expressing their opinions in non cordial ways. But I never received anything like what I am getting now!
