Linux admin for Walmart in China

While talking with some friends about a person looking to 'retrain' as a Linux admin (after 21 years as an IT person), someone made a humorous comment.

I had been ranting about Walmart employees being the largest group of comsumers of free state health care (because they get no health coverage from their employeer).

He suggested the person become a Linux admin for Walmart in China while, at the same time, trying to organize a union.

That seemed to summarize my views perfectly :-)

I personally this it's shameful that the nation's largest employeer is 'taxing' people like me who pay state income tax. It appears I'm personally subsidizing the Walmart corporation.

Here another article about corporations free-loading off the state.
