Warren going hard after Walton family
quote:


Elizabeth Warren
@ewarren
The Walmart heirs make $4 million an hour.

A new Walmart associate makes $11 an hour.

My two-cent wealth tax on families like the Waltons would help level the playing field for working families and rebuild the middle class.



Here’s an incredible stat:

A Walton heir makes more in ONE MINUTE than a Walmart worker makes in a year

I dislike wealth redistribution, but that is unreal.

Walmart has helped poor and middle class consumers, but maybe the family should consider bettering their image by donating a lot to causes and stuff

That is interest on their holdings, not salary. Ms Warren is comparing apples to feathers.

You think they dont already donate millions?

How about the Waltons shut down every store and then you have 1.5 millions people looking for work and the Waltons would still be making hundreds of millions off their wealth.

frick that. Do you have any idea how many people Walmart employs? It's not a charity. I'd venture to say 90% of their employees would be turned away from any other job. They took on the risk of starting the business. They get to reap the rewards.

So what?

What's next?

"The McDonald's fry cook only makes $15 per hour. The District manager makes $45. We MUST lever the playing field."

Oh, and Ms. Walton heir...

Besides, a "wealth tax" is unconstitutional. Do some reading Liawatha.

re: Warren going hard after Walton family
I completely get that, and the tweet is misleading because Walmart employs 2.5 million people.

But this stuff is highly potent politically
