I have seen a lot of negative stuff about Wallmart as well as recommendations to protest them. Why nothing on Costco? Ok, I know all the stuff about Costco's better pay and benefits but how about the fact that Costco robs a community of 10 full time jobs for every 1 it creates. Costo creates 1 job per $967,000 of economic activity vs. 1 per $170,000 for Wallmart and 1 per $100,000 for a typical small business. Doesn't anyone care about that? Sure Costco is better to its employees, but they can afford to be since they hire so few of them relative to their total sales.
