Hearing good about Wal-Mart

I do not understand why so many people are so against Wal-Mart coming to Auburn. It seems like the only store that wants to come here. The people who are so against it, do they not see all the empty new and old stores? That means less taxes coming in. I talked to some of my friends who work for Wal-Mart and asked them how they felt about their employer. They said, like all big companies, there are good and bad things. But, they said they at least had a job and could provide for their family, and not have to try and get help from the state. So, to the people who are afraid of us becoming a city full of crime and problems, I think you can rest. I was born and raised in San Francisco. Go live there for three months and you will see the difference. And be glad you are in Auburn, even if there is a Wal-Mart. Sharyn Digneo, Auburn
