WALMART vs. THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT

Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart every hour of every day. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot and Kroger and Target and Sears and Costco and K-Mart COMBINED

Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world's largest private employer
Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.

Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.  During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.  Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

Wal-Mart has approximately 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had FIVE YEARS AGO.

This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores.  (Earth's population is approximately 6.5 billion.)

90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart. (I’m 40 miles from one! UGH)

PERHAPS WE SHOULD HIRE THE PEOPLE WHO RUN WAL-MART TO RUN OUR ECONOMY!
