I've heard this before.  I do wonder about the turnover rate at Walmart.   Are many people using it as a stepping stone to a better job?  If so this criticism needs to be reanalyzed.  Could it be Walmart is developing more and better employees for better paying jobs faster than any government program ever has?  I am just wondering out loud here since I have to think lower echelon Walmart employees are looking for a way up and out asap.
