Bill answers a Wal-Mart question for me

This post concluded that Wal-Mart’s growth did not displace work in other sectors of the economy based upon Andrew Cassel’s article. During that time the state suffered a loss 100,000 manufacturing jobs due to other reasons. That led me to ask a new question.

“…if Wal-Mart hasn’t filled those jobs – what has?”

Bill says it’s technology. My gut tells me he’s right.
