I am sorry but Wal Mart is not a career unless you are possibly in the management career ladder. Everyone needs to realize that just because you have a "job" does not mean you will be able to get by. A job is something you do to earn money and a career is a series of connected employment opportunities, where you build up skills at earlier employment opportunities to move you into higher paying and higher prestige employment opportunities later on.
I realize that in today's economy that it is often difficult for someone to begin a career even with a college degree but that does not mean that the Wal-Marts, McDonald's, Targets and all the other fast food / retail jobs have to pay a "living wage" for because of this. A store clerk in Wal-Mart I am sure makes close to minimum wage as they should, but if that same store clerk applies themselves and works hard to become an assistant manager then guess what, that average salary is around $46,000 with benefits!
I was in the Army for 8 years of my life and each year during the holidays we had food baskets put together to help the soldiers that had young families and couldn't afford a nice Thanksgiving dinner, I am sure this still goes on today but you do not hear about it because most individuals in the military are proud people and obviously make sacrifices in their lives. Where are the Ashton Kutcher's of the world complaining about that?
