So, to solve this problem, the movie and television studios decided to do something about this.
What Wal-Mart actually costs the community as opposed to what they give back is substantially off kilter. The fact that thousands of their associates in each state have to rely on government assistance just to survive, and the dollar figures that come out for the taxpayers pockets is staggering. Wal-Mart employees have cost the taxpayers $1.5 billion in government provided assistance in 2005, because their employer will not provide them with adequate healthcare plans. That was 8 years ago and I can only imagine that these figures have gone up. Wal-Mart has also caused the property value of buildings in these small towns they invade to plummet.

Most manufacturers are not able to accommodate these prices. When the factories do not meet Wal-Mart’s demands, it can be harmful to the factories and also the stores that sell their products. Once this happens, neither the factories, nor other stores are able to compete with Wal-Mart’s prices. Unable to compete, factories either shut down or like Hoover, relocate to other countries (Freeman, 2003). This means thousands of American jobs are lost (Goldman, & Cleeland, 2003).
