You ARE aware of the current unemployment situation around here, right? I am sure there will be people lined up around the corner willing to work for a dollar..
It is, to me, sad how fast people forget the FOUNDATIONS of our fine country! This country was built by an armed population capable of fending for themselves, and will be lost by couches full of potato-sheeple riding their 52" HD-LEDTV's into the orwellian sunset. :(

Re: BREAKING NEWS!! For the FIRST TIME EVER in Wal-Mart history, several stores are ON STRIKE
Good for the strikers!

I worked a second job as an overnight cashier for almost a year, 2007-08, in a forlorn attempt to keep our home from foreclosure (long story), and it was the WORST job I ever had! I had worked "minimum-wage"-type jobs before and although my pay WAS good for the work -- about $11.50 an hour, I think -- they treated their employees like lazy morons, which in my experience, was not true for at least 75% of the employees. (BTW, I have a 132 IQ and had held various kinds and levels of managment positions in different fields in the past, but because my husband and I had recently adopted two special needs kids, I could not return to work at a "regular" 40-hour job.) Wal-Mart did not respect employee "availability-to-work" schedules or requests for needed days off; there were posters saying that if we got sick, we should "work through it"; and management made no secret that they would take a harsh view to any attempts to organize. Also, they gave their employees DOUGHNUTS on Friday instead of something healthy like bagels and/or fruit -- giving employees nothing would have been healthier than doughtnuts! However, the final straw for me came when I was "asked" to mop the employee lunchroom, a janitor's job, which I refused to do -- and I gave notice the next day.

In my long employment past, I had worked for JCPenney, Borders, and Sears -- and Borders was 25 bimes better to their employees and 100 timnes a better place to work than Wal-Mart (before they started to go under, that is), followed closely by JCPenney. Sears was definitely last of the three-- but even Sears was ten times better than Wal-Mart.

I HATE Wal-Mart!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24447374

What a bullshit story. Because you made bad choices in you family life, you take out your anger on an employer. I kinda get the impression you think you are just a little better than others. In rough times you will find you are not as special as you think you are.

Re: BREAKING NEWS!! For the FIRST TIME EVER in Wal-Mart history, several stores are ON STRIKE
I use to work for walmart and one time someone mentioned the word "Union" and for three days they took all of us in groups into the back of the building by the loading docks and told us that the Union is going door to door at 3 am threatening their employees and what ever you do don't answer the door and stay away from them at all costs, and then told us that if we mention the word union suits from corporate will come and lock the place up and interrogate all of us until we speak and rat the person out.

It worked too, one older woman raised her hand and asked "Will the union men hurt us?", and store manager said, they could.

The most disgusting thing I ever had to go thru on a job, I quit the next day.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12655659


lol I forgot to add they also said the union men were from the south side of Chicago and were very very threatening.

I cant believe the scare tactics they used.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12655659


I got all that anti-union shit during my "training". I found out why they're so anti-union. It's so they can take advantage of you anyway they want to and get away with it. I work from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. for a lousy $8.70/hour. They will work you 48 hours straight but get away with keeping you at part time with no benefits becuase they schedule you over the weekend. That way, as far as corporate is concerned, you "only" worked 32 hours a week.

And for you morons saying it's an easy job, I work those grueling hours all night long. I must walk 5 miles a night. I come home exhausted with days and nights turned upside down for a store that looks like shit. Morale is very low there.

And the other day I actually saw a customer spit on the floor.

Walmart sucks your soul dry. But it's the only job many of us can get these days.

If they are going to sell food, the employees should have health coverage

Also, I have worked low-wage jobs. You cannot live off those wages. Just standing at a register all day is tiring. Too bad unions always go to far and draw critics, but things would be far, far worse without them.

This sucks. These stories make me very sad. A lot of people have had good jobs sucked away from them. I hear IT guys talk about it. Used to be a great industry, got overheated, now a lot are working for pay much lower than they once had and no benefits.

Seriously are you people retarded?

Walmart is the only corp that is allowed to monopolize, along with their substandard practices and subhuman wages and you people think that these strikes aren't deserved?

Give your head a shake, granted some of the people that goto Walmart or work there are what I would say are not always the sharpest pencil in the box, but why are they treated like dogshit from one of the richest companies in the world?

Not to mention what they do to the governments and taxpayers for the breaks they get and the healthcare costs subsidies that they get as well.

Watch this video at least before judging why these people are striking.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24818156


Thanks for this movie. It's something everyone should watch becuase it shows just what a disgusting beast Walmart is on everything from worker discrimination, to sweatshops to environmental damage - but in the end there is hope as the movie shows town after town after town saying NO to Walmart coming in.

Time to kill the beast.

Walmart lets their employees work just below full time to avoid having to offer them any kind of benefits like vacations or health insurance. If I'm going to be investing my time, blood, sweat, and tears into growing the company I expect you to invest a little back in me. Instead management wastes their time trying to increase profits to the max while trying to squeeze the life out of you even if you are passionate about your work and want to do a good job. They could care less because they see you are replaceable. If you think these people don't want to work then you are out of touch.

1. The less you do in a job the less you should get paid.
2. Having said that anyone standing on their feet and catering to people in a retail setting for more than 6 hours a day should make at least 10$ an hour as minimum pay for all the B.S. they have to take not only from customers but managers who want someone to blame when customers are unhappy.
3. People that work at Walmart are people too. So are those that work at McDonalds, Sears, Target, Shop N Save, KMart, and Acme. The list goes on and on. Some of these people have this as their second job. For some it's all they have. If any one of these companies would have a full on strike across the country to raise minimum wage to that 10$ an hour no one would get served. NO ONE. Not the rich, not the poor, not the middle class. If these people did not do what they did everyday for a pittance just to get a loaf of bread and gallon of milk on the table just to stay off the dole (and in all actuality, ADD to the coffers of FED and state) we would be in serious trouble. How many of you would suffer without a tire service? How many of you would suffer without cheap prices? How many of you would suffer without someone else making your family's dinner?
4. If these workplaces would actually pay these people what they were worth for these "lowlife jobs" we wouldn't have to worry about unemployment lines and second jobs and the dollar spiraling downward. If companies wouldn't have outsourced all the good jobs leaving us unable to tax those companies that manufacture the goods that these people sell we wouldn't have to worry either.
5. God Bless America cause we sure do need a blessing to get through this decade at the rate we're going.

All depends on where you work in the store.

I am glad they are on strike.
