I'm not so sure that in the proper conditions, the small shopkeeper is so much worse of than the Walmart employee. VietNam is only starting to have supermarkets, and when I see the small shopkeeper, the shop is essentially an extension of the house, rather than a place where "normal life" is put away eight hours a day. And the comparison between small farmer and factory worker doesn't hold that much here, either ; many factory workers go back to the family farm after a few years....
