I'm just wondering if Walmart paid their cashiers $12 an hour why would anyone bother trying to go to college and get a better job or try to learn a skill? In this area to get a job that pays $12 an hour you need to have at least some kind of experience or skill, an entry level person isn't paid that much. Why would anyone try to do a harder job if they could get paid just as much for something like a cashier that doesn't take as much skill?

ummm, because you can make a lot more?
I think it would be totally stressful trying to raise my family on 12 dollars an hour. I'm glad I had an opportunity for something better.
Plus lets remember, while they are a large employer, they can't employ everyone. going to college gives you more options than just being a cashier at walmart.

It's irrelevant in CA; servers have to be paid at least minimum wage; tips are on top of that.
There's no shame in working at Walmart.
Bonita, who said anything about Walmart shoppers being scummy? Perhaps you meant to say another thought? Freudian slip?
