At least these people are working.
I, for one, would not pay the workers at Walmart any more money than they are getting. Having the worst customer service, per a survey of national companies, says it all. Yes maybe the company doesn't train them in this but it is something that is common sense. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to know that when someone asks where something is located you don't just walk by and point.
You are dead on about tax credits, and IF the government is offering them they would be plain stupid not to take advantage of them..
like so many of the progressives on here would not take free money.. ahahahahahaha
Our customer service here in ELP is not so good.. but almost all the other cities I have shopped in most of their employees bend over backwards for great service..
I actually refused to go into their older stores as they were to cramped, but as they built the superstores there seems to have loads more space in them..
The service is still not at great level in town but that probably has more to do with not being Hispanic than everything else..
