Thank you for covering this issue before - companies like Walmart save huge sums of money by providing low wages and poor benefits, forcing taxpayers to pick up the slack with food stamps, housing assistance, and other forms of assistance. There is a way to prevent this by making the company pay a fee per low-wage employee, equal to total value of public assistance they required to reach a livable standard. This article is short, but all the links are helpful. I would love to hear how we can make something like this happen. https://theintercept.com/2017/06/13/theres-a-new-way-to-make-walmart-pay-for-the-food-stamps-employees-rely-on/
