Script Summary: Walmart prices translated to equivalent hours of work required by Associates and Supplier labor



How many hours does a Walmart Associate have to work (ignoring taxes, etc) to purchase each of the products on Walmart's site? How about the Guangdong Province laborer who had a hand in making the product? Hmmmmm....

(UPDATED: Added original price back. And Walmart CEO *seconds*. It's getting kind of busy, so you can comment out any sections you're not as interested in, though each tells its own story.)
