Interesting Fact - Money

Allegedly, the two biggest welfare recipients in America today are Wal-Mart and McDonald's.

(So, how does that work out?  Well, according to a report in Bloomberg, American fast food workers received more than $7 billion dollars in public assistance between 2007 and 2011.

McDonald's even had a “McResource” line that helped employees and their families enroll in various state and local assistance programs. It exploded into the public when a recording advocated that full-time employees sign up for food stamps and welfare, and has since been closed down.

According to the same report, Wal-Mart employees are the largest group of Medicaid recipients. They are also the single biggest group of food stamp recipients. Wal-mart’s "associates" are paid so little, according to Congressman Alan Grayson, that they receive $1,000 on average in public assistance.

Once upon a time, if you were unemployed you needed financial help.  Working hard and still needing government handouts is simply wrong.)
