I'd like to overlay that map with number of people on public assistance programs. We already know that Walmart pays poverty wages and many of their employees need public assistance to survive - yet they're "employed." Taxpayers supplement their income though their employer is the richest in the country ($163B - Bloomberg, 2019). The newest tax cuts by our Orange Leader gives them a 21% tax bracket which easily becomes 0% after the many loopholes and deductions that are written into the tax laws for corps.

That would be interesting to see. But all of those states are very affordable to live in as well. Have you thought about what the poverty rate would like like WITHOUT Walmart? And mentioning our “Orange leader” ruined your credibility since your bias is showing. No one cares about which way you sway politically, it only makes them upset. The taxes are lower for corporations so that more jobs can be be created. I know it sounds wrong, but you can’t really have it both ways. I’m not sure where the publisher was going with this concerning HR reasons. Sort of bothers me to be honest. I’m in Phoenix and drive through workers get paid a high minimum wage and some places up to $17. If this applies to Walmart, which it may considering it’s the new law, then your above statement is moot.

There is value in having a job with dignity. Having any job isn't good enough and not what we should be striving for. Plenty of hard working people have 2-3 jobs yet still struggle and are constantly bashed by those who win by keeping poor people poor. Very few Walmart employees at FT, they're kept just under the hours to get benefits. That's the strategy. You sticking up for OrangeBaby shows where your credibility is too. Lower taxes for corps does not translate into more jobs. That died decades ago. It just means more profit for them. If that was true, why did AT&T recently lay off 23,000 workers after they got over $1B tax break from Congress? Before their tax break they promised 7,000 new jobs. Thank you.

Whats dignity to you might not be dignity to somebody else so stop comparing yourself to other people and expecting people to live up to your standard. You’re acting like Walmart is the only corporation that exists in all of those states… It’s not! I do support the president and I do support an economy that has broken over 140 records in our stock market history since he’s been in office. I’m sorry you don’t want to admit the fact that he’s killing it in the jobs department, but he is. I’m tired of people acting like they are economists when they don’t even know what they are talking about.

How sad is it that healthcare is the primary employer in so many states. Costs have continued to rise as these private companies get bigger and bigger, too big to fail possibly and yet quality is stagnant or receding. Healthcare, public education and Walmart, that is sad for a capitalist country.

IMHO, I think people as a general population have been so far removed from natural, non-GMO, non-packaged foods, that they don't quite know what's considered healthy anymore. The worse people eat, the sicker they get, thus relying on healthcare to solve their problems.

I know your comment if off topic (and thus so is mine, ha!) but I wholeheartedly agree! Big Ag and the rest of Big Food along with the help of Pharma have so manipulated and distorted our food and food supply that it's no wonder many people have chronic health issues.

That's super interesting, but I'm not sure what the impact on HR curriculum would be or professional practice.

I posted the above graphic from https://matadornetwork.com/read/mapped-largest-employers-us-state/?fbclid=IwAR1CakwX7JRXB9TTCzgNbvxR_a1LBygTIJc3AVcEBUQXs6rLCxVfJHzS8QQ I would love to here your thoughts on the impact this has in two specific areas. HR Curriculum and HR professional practice.
