Federal Shutdown, WIC, and Walmart Suppliers — Walmart News Now

A post from Walmart News Now on how a potential government shutdown might have affected WIC benefits. . .and retailers that participate in the program:

The federal government shutdown has predictably attracted a lot of media attention. Much of the reporting has focused on how the shutdown affects government workers and their families, businesses located near national parks and monuments, and individuals who rely on assistance programs to make ends meet. While families and small business owners may be hardest hit by the shutdown, major retailers and suppliers won’t escape the consequences of a deeply challenged economy, particularly if their target market includes individuals who’ve lost a significant amount of their employment or benefit income.
