Do I think there's a problem with working at WalMart? Of course not. But I don't think that's going to help a family much. You probably won't make enough at WalMart to pay for childcare, for instance, especially if you have more than one child. And even WalMart is cutting people's hours right now in our area.

I think so too. If you can't afford to have a sahp, it doesn't matter how you feel about the issue, and if you can't make enough money to pay for childcare, ditto.

Yes, but everyone benefits from that tax break, not just those below poverty level. It's not like they check your W-2 at the checkout to see if you have to pay sales tax or not.

Not necessarily. An acquaintance of mine recently started working at Sears. I know she is college educated and had been a SAHM fore years until she got this job. She has two kids in high school. I don't know her that well and did not talk to her when I happened to see her working that day. I ran into her about a week later and she mentioned that her dd was looking at colleges. While talking about the gym we both belong to, she said that she had recently gotten a job and that's why I hadn't seen her at the gym lately.

I don't know if she started working b/c her family needs the income now due to the economy or to help pay for college or if she was just looking for something to do. But she does not fall into the category that you indicate above so be careful when you make blanket statements with no proof to back that up.
