Now, that may not seem like such a big deal, but it is a sneaky way of raising expenses for average Americans during the Great Recession which continues to erode our standard of living. More telling, it is typical of the way Walmart does business, while assuring customers that its former slogan "Lower Prices - Always!" still applies at the Big W. It would seem that it is not enough for Walmart to pay lower wages to women than to men, fire anyone who even whispers the word "union," and parade its Americanism with American Flags while buying most of its stuff from China and elsewhere. No, Walmart needs to make it even harder for budget-conscious Americans to make ends meet by gouging them over "the staff of life" too. Perhaps a more-honest Walmart slogan would be: "Walmart -- Greed Above All, Always!"
