Wal-Mart Subsidy Watch

Companies: Wal-Mart

Wal-Mart has received over $1.2 billion in tax breaks and other corporate subsidies such as low-cost financing and even grants. Additionally, becuse Wal-Mart does not provide health insurance for all its employees, the burden is placed on American taxpayers to fund Medicaid and other government programs. Wal-Mart Subsidy Watch is a new campaign from the nonprofit, Good Jobs First, that tracks information on the subsidies Wal-Mart receives. There is a section where you can compare on a state-by-state basis how much and what kind of subsidies Wal-Mart is receiving in your area.
