Letter: Thoughts about Galt’s new Walmart

On June 11, Galt welcomed a new Walmart to town, meaning that nearly 300 full- or part-time workers were added to the list of the employed. That evidently means that 300 people who were not employed before now have a job.

Different cities are proposing differences in pay. The newly employed will be making more now, since I would think none had a job before and would not step down from a job paying more.

To have a job no matter the pay means a lot to the unemployed, and can also mean a chance for advancement. Granted, Galt is not San Francisco or any other large city that might be able to offer $15 an hour, and far above the minimum wage. However, after all the deductions from the paycheck are removed, that $15 is not what it would seem to be.

During the construction of Walmart, evidently the plan to install solar was not an issue. Many big-box stores have ample space to install solar, since going green these days seems to be the thing to do, though not required — but for whatever reason did not. Cost effectiveness might be a reason as to the installation of solar.
