Socialist propaganda website Jacobin was the subject of a hilarious community note on X when posting an article about Walmart’s first-quarter profits.

The site posted the article “Walmart Is Still Putting Ebenezer Scrooge to Shame” on Monday, May 20. It described the retailer as “infamous for its starvation wages.”

“The surge is a result of its strategic shift toward catering to affluent shoppers while its full-time workers continue to rely on Medicaid and food stamps,” the post added.

However, social media users were quick to point out the low rates of pay for Jacobin’s writers, who are only paid $0.07 per word.

This pay rate – for which writers are asked to complete at least 1,800 words – is at lower end of the pay scale for inexperienced, beginner writers.
