Walmart’s low-wage workers cost U.S. taxpayers an estimated $6.2 billion in public assistance including food stamps, Medicaid and subsidized housing, according to a report published to coincide with Tax Day, April 15.
Americans for Tax Fairness, a coalition of 400 national and state-level progressive groups, made this estimate using data from a 2013 study by Democratic Staff of the U.S. Committee on Education and the Workforce.
“The study estimated the cost to Wisconsin’s taxpayers of Walmart’s low wages and benefits, which often force workers to rely on various public assistance programs,” reads the report, available in full here.
“It found that a single Walmart Supercenter cost taxpayers between $904,542 and $1.75 million per year, or between $3,015 and $5,815 on average for each of 300 workers.”
Americans for Tax Fairness then took the mid-point of that range ($4,415) and multiplied it by Walmart’s approximately 1.4 million workers to come up with an estimate of the overall taxpayers’ bill for the Bentonville, Ark.-based big box giant’s staffers.
The report provides a state-by-state breakdown of these figures, as well as some context on the other side of the coin: Walmart’s huge share of the nationwide SNAP, or food stamp, market.
“Walmart told analysts last year that the company has captured 18 percent of the SNAP market,” it reads. “Using that figure, we estimate that the company accounted for $13.5 billion out of $76 billion in food stamp sales in 2013.”

Работники Воллмарта из за своей низкой зарплаты стоят налогоплательщикам приблизительно 6.2 миллиарда долларов в год в виде талонов на еду, медстраховки для бедных и государственных субсидий на жильё. Это прямое воспоможение одной из самых богатых компаний США, чьи (множественные) владельцы входят в 20 самых богатых людей страны. И это не социалистическая пропаганда - это, извините меня, Форбс пишет. Что самое циничное, компания еще и наживается на фудстемпах, захватив почти пятую часть всего рынка талонов на питание. Феодализм, чистой воды феодализм.

И не надоо говорить, что зато корпорация приносит деньги в виде налогов. Нет, ребятки, НЕ приносит. И об этом пишет опять же не "социалисты", а Блумберг:
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. owns more than $76 billion of assets through a web of units in offshore tax havens around the world, though you wouldn’t know it from reading the giant retailer’s annual report.
A new study has found Wal-Mart has at least 78 offshore subsidiaries and branches, more than 30 created since 2009 and none mentioned in U.S. securities filings. Overseas operations have helped the company cut more than $3.5 billion off its income tax bills in the past six years, its annual reports show.
The study, researched by the United Food & Commercial Workers International Union and published Wednesday in a report by Americans for Tax Fairness, found 90 percent of Wal-Mart’s overseas assets are owned by subsidiaries in Luxembourg and the Netherlands, two of the most popular corporate tax havens.
Units in Luxembourg -- where the company has no stores -- reported $1.3 billion in profits between 2010 and 2013 and paid tax at a rate of less than 1 percent, according to the report.


И, заметьте, никого не посадили и никто не благовопит, что, смотрите, америкашка-парашка, деньги бегут в развитые страны из нее. Ага, наподобие Каймановых островов. И бегут опять же - через Нидерланды и Люксембург. Там же, где русские воробуржуи прячут деньги.
