    With a dash of healthcare thrown in.

    Biggest non-government employers for each US state.


    Wonder what it'd be for the UK counties.

    I've been in quite a few Walmart stores in the US

    Most of them are pretty horrible - and their record of treating their staff is even worse.

    It's origins appear to have been humble, although after the company floated they appear to have kept up to date with what people want and where they want it. I wonder what percentage of imported goods they sell and if this is why there is a focus on manufacturing in the USA at the moment, reliance on tertiary sector industries is fickle as we know from our financial service industry.

    As for the UK, that would be interesting, especially to try to analyse how many of our employers are actually wholly UK based.

    Asda Walmart?

    Is it by the number of employees or the amount spent on wages?
