If there is a more loathsome, puke-worthy family of billion-heirs than the Waltons, who are, IMO, straight up, enemies of humanity on so many, many levels, it would have to be the Koch brothers, who are, of course, also dead set against the minimum wage.
S. Robson Walton: $ 19.7 Billion
Jim Walton: $ 20.1 Billion
Christy Walton: $ 24 Billion
Alice Walton: $ 20 Billion
Helen Walton: $ 16.4 billion
In 2004, the Waltons got a tax break of $91,500 an hour. AN HOUR!!!
All the while, their employees lived on poverty-level wages and received BILLIONS of dollars a year from taxpayers!
I mean, how much did they MAKE per hour to get a TAX BREAK like that? It boggles the mind.
At what point will the “off with their heads” moment occur? When “the system” pits one family and their stockholders against much of the world, how long before that camel’s back is going to break?
I think it’s definitely going to happen, more just a matter of when at this point.
