I feel very badly for these Walmart workers being used by this union like this. Ask yourself why now? Why is this suddenly so urgent there are union rep out there on the picket line and often more than the actual Walmart workers. What's that about? One million workers to milk for dues for nothing and with them possibly not only all that money to donate to Democrats but a million votes to deliver as well. It's just that we see through the scam and are not falling for it. Walmart will just pass the expense along to the already embattled consumer, the working class. With real unemployment at least 11% and the economy totally stagnant, it's one odd time to be so desperate to unionise after being non-union all these years except for the obvious. And that' sure not to help the workers. [/quote] you sound like you are, and sadly the majority thinks your a rich scum pos THERE ARE NO SUCH THING AS UNIONIZED WALMART WORKERS you ******** you tell me which companies union workers where at which walmart you neo-con **** sucker still can't tell us which company you work for or anything another looney with no evidence to support his claim/ cry for help STOP POSTING IN GLP [/quote] You are not the majority, lol. OK, here's one article on union workers protesting with Wal-mart workers Quote: MILFORD — Friday might have kicked off the holiday shopping season, but the animated group that gathered in front of Walmart to share its voice wasn’t there to sing Christmas carols. [b]About 25 union workers from a local health care facility staged a brief protest of the retailer and its employees’ wages, benefits and ever-expanding Black Friday shopping schedule. The West River Healthcare Center employees, who are members of the New England Healthcare Workers Union, Local 1199, have been on strike since summer and said they wanted to support Walmart workers by picketing. Other union members protested at store locations in Hartford, Danbury and Stamford, and additional supporters and some Walmart workers held similar events across the country. Many [/b]protests and walk-outs were held last week at stores, but several were planned for Black Friday, typically viewed as on of the busiest shopping day of the year. http://nhregister.com/articles/2012/11/24/news/doc50af940cc04ca722469315.txt Note the part about similar events across the country. Then there is this one in St Paul Minnisota: ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Hundreds gathered outside the Wal-Mart store on Friday along University Avenue in St. Paul. Th[b]ere were some workers who had walked off the job, and others were members of labor unions lending their support[/b]. http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2012/11/23/wal-mart-workers-unions-protest-on-black-friday/ And on and on it goes. But I don't know what difference that makes and why you are making such a big deal about it. I NEVER said the Wal-mart workers were union but that these unions were protesting with the Wal-mart workers. That's the whole point--they are trying to unionize Wal-mart at a time when the economy is at a very low point with 8% or more unemployment. [/quote]

Despite union efforts to target retailers like Walmart, businesses are reporting record Black Friday traffic – the biggest sign yet that the unions are out of touch with the American people. Starting at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, Walmart put its products on Black Friday sale, sparking a run to the stores and earning the stores record sales.
They’ve already sold nearly 2 million towels, 1.3 million televisions, and 250,000 bicycles. According to Walmart Chief Executive Bill Simon, over 1.3 million Walmart staffers are on duty. There have been picket lines around the country, but the movement has been far less effective than expected.
