An organization opposed to Wal-Mart Stores Inc. took out a full-page newspaper ad Wednesday that accuses the world's biggest retailer of costing taxpayers some $1.6 billion a year.
While I fully understand the point of these people, I'm not sure they see the other side of the issue. There are small towns and semi-rural places where people swear by WalMart. Many of these families have seen their standard of living increased because of WalMart's cost cutting. You can find all sorts of discussion on this stuff at Always Low Prices.
