Re: Walmart Workers to Strike on Black Friday
Our entire remaining social services are aimed solely at providing big corporations with inexpensive labor - so their rich owners can make more $ to give in campaign contributions...

There is also a small element of it that is used to keep society stable enough for rich men and their corporations to profit - but that is a very small percent of overall welfare - most of which goes to "working poor"....

The saddest thing is that the rabid-rightwingers are screeeeching endlessly about further hurting the workers as being the way forward for America.

Very sophisticated new propaganda techniques are obviously being used, and while I am sure academics know the specifics of these new internet and mobile device enabled propaganda - the citizens here are clearly 50% indoctrinated by big corporations and banker rhetoric.

Since 1983. the "lower 80%" has gone from 8.7% yearly wealth share down to less than 4%..... And yet the rightwing, and sadly basically the democrats as well, want to blame single moms who's husbands are in prison at a rate of something like 25%

Re: Walmart Workers to Strike on Black Friday
On another note, Wal-Mart opens now at 8PM thanksgiving day, it's thanksgiving day they need to strike, not Friday.
 Quoting: Cult of Personality


A lot of folks, regardless of their politics, will feel something is really screwed up about Walmart changing their schedule and making even Thanksgiving just another day. Time off on Xmas could easily be the next domino to fall in the future.

Walmart is asking for a black eye when they pull shit like that. But it also has to be said that their sales volume has been stagnating and even falling during the past several quarters.

Walmart and all the materialistic sheeple of America deserve one another. This may not have the best of endings.

Re: Walmart Workers to Strike on Black Friday
I think they let Walmart know too early about a strike. Wallyworld will now just hire a bunch of temps to fill positions for Black Friday. It wouldn't surprise me if all employees that strike are fired and replaced since these jobs don't require much skill.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27452453


Yes - they should have just quietly all coordinated some sort of 'hooky' day. Call in for your shift and tell them you're sick, your grandma died, you were in a car accident ... or whatever, all on the same day. WM would be buggered and there's no way they could fire everyone.

Also - the temp thing: Maybe those jobs aren't brain surgery, but they skill require some skill and knowledge.

I can just imagine a busy WM (short) staffed with temps on Black Friday.

by very definition "single" moms mean women who have children without husbands, jailed or otherwise. let me guess you voted for obama didn't you?? whose is who's spelled correctly.

Don't forget the second group, because the libtards are the ones who were running countries like Greece and Spain right before they fell into the shitter shredder. A libtard is in charge of France right now, and that country is showing signs of being more screwed up than ever before.

If Obamabots are so concerned about the plight of the worker and the shittiness of big corporation, they better not be among the shoppers buying into the greedy hook of Black Friday sales and moseying down the aisles of Walmart, most definitely on Thanksgiving, if not the day afterwards too.

I worked for Walmart for almost 2 years and couldn't believe the way they treat thier "associates". I really hope they are taken to task on what they do. Sam Walton had a decent vision and employees were happy until he died and his family f'd things up.

Re: Walmart Workers to Strike on Black Friday
someone needs to tell these waltards that strikes only work if the striking workers are skilled labor, not fat know nothing slob employees.

easily replaced.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26752035


I am college educated and was laid off from a job that I had for almost 15 years. I was on unemployment and needed a job right away so I actually moved out of state and took a job at Walmart.

If I had stayed on unemployment you all would have chastised me for being lazy and not taking any job right? So, I am not unskilled, just needed a paycheck. You should go to work there and see how you like it, they are taking advantage.

Sure, Walmart could easily replace these workers. If they had not announced the strike and just didn't show up on death friday though then they could have cost Walmart a big chunk of revenue. Too late for that now.

Whats the problem davvi? cannot come up with real arguments, so you attack the single moms (as usual) and the spelling?

IDIOTIC.

30% of citizens (the % that are voting against raising tax on wealthy(in recent exit poll), but are themselves poor) are voting for their own demise.

The 'bottom 80%' of americans have lost over 60% of their yearly income, from 8.7% of the yearly wealth to less than 4% - since 1983. yet these lower 80%ers STILL vote for the rich to have the lowest taxes they have had since the 1940s, and the worst wealth disparity since the 1920s....

shocking I tell you!

who shops at walmart anyway.?
 Quoting: Skin Suit


The people who work there shop there.

Instead of going on strike, these people should just shop elsewhere. That way they get to keep their job AND they are boycotting the company and giving more money to the competitors.

Does anyone remember years ago when Walmart was Proud to Display and Advertise saying and promoting "MADE IN THE USA"???

I haven't shopped there in years and years because they STOPPED that practice and started selling only Chinese made Crap.

And they started treating their Employees like Crap.
