Walmart Alone Cost Us 200,000 Jobs in 6 Years – Lost to China

“Wal-Mart Moms might not be pleased to learn that according to the Economic Policy Institute, the U.S. trade deficit with China, between 2001 and 2006, eliminated 1.8 million U.S. jobs—and Wal-Mart’s trade deficit with China alone eliminated nearly 200,000 U.S. jobs. Wal-Mart was responsible for 11% of the growth in the U.S. trade deficit during this period.”
