Walmart workers - who don't seem to get why they have to beg for food stamps and eat donated canned goods and sometimes go hungry so their kids can eat rather than earn a living wage for hard tedious work - are getting some uppity. Today they chained a giant food bin to the entrance of the $25 million Park Avenue condo (a second home) of Alice Walton, who is worth $38 billion. "We don’t want your charity," they say. "We want fair pay for the work we do to help your family add $8.6 million a day to your $150 billion in wealth." The discrepancies grow ever-harder to ignore.
