“That last one is really sad to think about. To think workers at Wal-Mart are making more than people inside Platinum right now? I mean… well, maybe that’s saying a lot on it’s own. At least they are being paid something, because the last I heard nobody was being paid anything at all.”

This from DJ Coffman, former friend and creator for Platinum Studios on the announcement the company is now paying their employees minimum wage.

    At least, unlike the people at Wal-Mart, they get to do something they love for a living. Sure, it may make things tough and they may have to get a 2nd job, but at least they can go to at least one job and be passionate about what they do.

    Just to put it out there, I’m a Walmart employee who isn’t abused, underpaid, and whipped for management’s pleasure. I know it’s popular to take slams at the big guy but Target actually offered me less money, benefits, and hours when I was job gunting. Go pick on them for a while…
