hi!! so i was thinking about your fic of bruce going to walmart and getting baffled by how cheap things were and i wanted to know how he feels about dollar stores/if he even knows they exist!

I think that while he’s probably aware of things like the Futian market, and the ability of dollar stores to sell cheap products through wholesale purchasing of inferior goods or travel-sized versions of name brand products, he (like a lot of people) was probably less aware of things like Wal-Mart’s ability to decide on price points that they can then force suppliers to adhere to under the threat of not having their products available in Wal-Mart stores, such that any company that does business with Wal-Mart can be forced to completely alter the way they do business.

I also got some shit at the time from people who thought Bruce Wayne would be more than familiar with the horrors of at-will employment, etc, but the fact is that whenever I’ve seen someone discuss the shit they’ve gone through as a retail employee in an at-will right-to-work state, I’ve also seen anyone middle-class or higher express shock and horror that these kinds of things are legal, totally unaware that these things exist and what they really mean for workers. For someone like Bruce Wayne as I write him, as someone who has never been victimized by these laws but to whom it would also never occur to try and victimize anyone else under such laws, I think it’s a completely reasonable blind spot for him to have.
