Subsidizing Wal-Mart contd...

Steve Gilliard, coincidently, talks about the WalMart subsidy. He is refering to a study done in Wisconsin.

The News Blog:

One thing stands out with the chart: Target has 80 employees eligible for the state's Badger Care program, KMart has 102 people. WalMart has 809. 10 employees for every one of Target's, eight for every one of KMart. The next largest company has under 200 employees using state aid.
Here is the chart. Here is the article. WalMart gets a $2M subsidy, a year. How much is it here in Michigan?
