Murfreesboro, TN, doesn't need more Walmarts of any size!

  • by: Art Growden

We already have 5 Walmarts in Rutherford County. Walmart store openings destroy almost three local jobs for every two they create by reducing retail employment by an average of 2.7 percent in every county they enter. Walmart workers average just $8.81 hour. This translates to annual pay of $15,576, based on Walmart's definition of full-time. This is less than two-thirds of the poverty line for a family of four, and well below what most families actually need to get by.
