Wal-Mart keeps these employees from sharing in these gains by keeping them in scared and in poverty. Ever since I started working at a market I then realized not only Wal-Mart excludes its employees and the poor from sharing in gains. The low paid employees at Wal-Mart will never share in gains as long as they work at Wal-Mart. Mallaby admits Wal-Mart can treat their employees and other retailers unfairly, but as a result everyone can share in the 50 billion in savings that American shoppers consume annually. The pay that employees get is the price they must pay for low priced merchandise.

While Wal-Mart continues to dominate the market and provide low cost goods to consumers, it does so at a high cost. Wal-Mart 's millions of employees pay is not reflective with its subsequent profits, leaving families with financial instability. With Wal-Mart 's engagement in price discrimination and its power of the market to receive substandard low cost goods it continues to make enormous profits. The ability to obtain products at a low price not only has helped Wal-Mart keeps costs down but maintain them as an inferior good. Since Wal-Mart is inelastic, it has no incentive to raise its prices, or the price it is willing to pay to producers.
The other side argues that Wal-Mart only became successful by killing off all their competition with their low prices. The only thing that matters to those that like the company is that they save consumers money through their low prices, but you cannot tell this to all the owners of smaller stores that Wal-Mart has put out of business, such as Gary E. Hawkins. The CEO of a family-owned supermarket in New York, he said "It will be a sad day in this country if we wake up one morning and all we find is a Wal-Mart on every corner." This is obviously a conflict of different interests, and it is unclear as to whether Wal-Mart is beneficial or harmful to the economy. Wal-Mart grew to its enormous size mainly because of the low prices it offers its consumers, which seems to be an obvious benefit to the economy.
