not true. They would have other jobs. Manufacturing jobs for example, because most of what WalMart sells is from China. There would be alot of other jobs as well. Tire stores, mechanics, mom and pop places, drugstores, hardware stores, appliance stores, etc. Wal Mart has put so many smaller operations out of business, that they have taken away far more jobs than they produce, and since they know they can, they pay less to the employees, give them less or no benefits, etc. Unfortunately, it's like boycotting the chiefs. There are enough people out there that care more about saving $3 on a pack of underwear than they do about helping out our economy as a whole.
