The Walton Family (no, not that idealised TV series dealing with quaint, old fashioned, mid-west family values) who run Wal*Mart pay themselves around $500 million dollars a year in 'compensation' for all their hard and unfailing work, (Walton Family net worth $102.7 billion) in keeping their heaving human ant's nest under firm control.
Of course they should fire and prosecute this immoral woman, who stole and ate a $1 packet of Oreos, it's their moral duty, as a lesson to others.
A Crime of the Century.
It's vitally important, when you are obscenely rich, to keep the underclass rigidly in their place. Heaven forbid that we should have another Revolution, like the Russians and the French? That would be treason. Then the Waltons would have to call out the National Guard!
