A Democrat hopeful Bernie Sanders tried to make the world’s largest publicly traded employer feel some shame today:
I say to Walmart: Get off of welfare. Start paying your employees a living wage!

Feel the Bern! As we’ve learned, Sanders believes the minimum wage is the “foundation of the middle class,” or something.
@SenSanders Walmart jobs are not designed to raise a family of 4

Agreed! Let's cut welfare programs and force Walmart to do that through the force of the market. https://t.co/ZFlrxszUWP

@SenSanders So basically you want Walmart to raise its prices so the poor people can't afford necessary goods.

@SenSanders And if they do millions of poor people will no longer be able to afford to shop at Walmart. Economics 101.

As Sanders has demonstrated, he’s not exactly concerned about making economic sense.
