BREAKING NEWS!! For the FIRST TIME EVER in Wal-Mart history, several stores are ON STRIKE
Hell yeah.

[link to www.salon.com]
Wal-Mart workers on strike

Employees protesting working conditions and retaliation are flexing their organizing muscle. But the first-of-its-kind strike carries risks

Today, for the first time in Wal-Mart’s 50-year history, workers at multiple stores are out on strike. Minutes ago, dozens of workers at Southern California stores launched a one-day work stoppage in protest of alleged retaliation against their attempts to organize. In a few hours, they’ll join supporters for a mass rally outside a Pico Rivera, Calif., store. This is the latest – and most dramatic – of the recent escalations in the decades-long struggle between organized labor and the largest private employer in the world.

My prediction, by March 2013, 25% of all walmart will be closed. Seeing the child tax credit is reduced this tax season, at least 47% wont be buying goods from them come refund time.

Watch and see.. If you work at Wal-mart, get your resume ready..

Stinking Walmart is a corporation that pays slave wages to hard working people. Walmart has been in trouble more than once for their treatment of their employees. I'm sure they can afford a higher wage.

I can tell you from experience. I was in management in the 90s. Walmart will close a store completely or however many stores it takes before it will let workers organize. And they should. Unions are soul sucking dirtbags.

I don't care what you think! The last place I'd want to work is a Walmart. They take advantage of people by paying slave wages with little incentive to grow. Most are now UNDER-STAFFED, because this corporation is reaping all the benefits and giving their employees under what they deserve. I mean, come on, minimum wage for the bookkeeping position? That's ridiculous!

I had to chuckle when I talked with a manager this past summer. Wally's sales have dropped tremendously, because people are keeping their lawn mowers and maintaining them, instead of buying new ones. The prices on everything dropped, except food. They are higher fewer staff now, so the workers are over-burdened. YES, I HATE WALMATE! The greedy bastards!

My cousin use to be a Cashier at Wally World, she worked there because of the benefits since her husband was self employed.

She made 18.00 an hr, and had great medical, dental and vision benefits as well as profit sharing and matching 401K Plan she left 5 yrs ago, not sure what they do now...

I guess, if we all had that attitude, we'd all be getting minimum wage and workig 12 hour days. Walmart gets what it deserves for the treatment of their employees.

I worked for WM for a short period, I was promoted once, and offered another promotion just as I was about to quit for another job.

The reason most people at WM don't get "incentive to grow" is because they're completely useless. There is no incentive because there is no potential in them to be anything but minimum wagers.
