Santa comes early for Louisiana welfare recipients

Folks shopping in at least two Louisiana Walmart stores got a early present from Santa; cash cards with no spending limit!

Shoppers in other states were less lucky. In many cases their cards simply didn't work.

I was originally puzzled by why Walmart is the only retailer mentioned in the story. Then I recalled reading about how many Walmart employees rely on food stamps to feed their families, due to the poverty wages paid by the conglomerate.

It all makes sense now; employee loyalty. Even in the face of Walmart's long anti-worker history, those employees still shop there, even when gifted an unlimited cash card.

That's a workforce that deserves a raise!
