Re: Union Fail: Walmart Reports Record Sales
There are so many more things that come with a union other than a slightly higher wage, the most important thing being a voice that will be heard. How some of the bootlickers on this site can be so against that is beyond me.

Its almost like some of you are advocates of everyone being just one step above slavery other than your masters of course.

LOL - you obviously are a Union boss on the dole of Union member "contributions".

Unions are nothing more than organized Slavery, beholden to their Slave Master, a/k/a the Union bosses.

My point isnt about how evil unions should take over the business world, but Walmart is the perfect example of the future of the workplace without unions. These big employers will turn you out like a trick all day every day and as soon as you say a word, they fire you. If thats how you want things in your world, enjoy that.

This is really pissing me off the more I think about it. Walmart is the enemy of the American people, yet some of the you are so blinded by your brainwashing and insatiable need for more cheap chinese shinies that you just cant help but come to defend a company that intentionally destroys communities in the name of capitalism.

You as taxpayers subsidize Walmart profits by paying for their employee benefits, doesnt that irk you at all?

Walmart is so scared of their employees forming unions that they are willing to walk away from stores that are entirely stocked and ready to open, doesnt that alone tell you that their business practices include things that would never fly with an educated organized workforce?

Lawsuit after lawsuit is filed against this business due to the way they treat employees and some of you cheer them on. Its pathetic.
 Quoting: JesseDart


Walmart isn't an enemy of the American people. Douchebags like you are.

Walmart provides jobs. Douchebags like you don't.

Walmart provides low cost products allowing less wealthy people to afford things they need or want. By offering these items at discounted prices, they are in fact allowing folks of lesser means to live a more comfortable life.

Don't like their business model? Don't shop or work there. simple as that.

They would never hire him in the first place...

Unfettered, they would hire illegals from war torn shitholes who would lick their boots for 25 cents an hour and sleep in cardboard boxes near the closest underpass.

In fact they do, they have been caught doing it before, and will probably do it again.

The majority of their products come from slave labor overseas, and the same people who wonder why they can't get an English speaking person for a tech call and complain about all of the jobs going overseas will then turn on their brothers and sisters standing up for themselves and demanding a living wage.

At the same time these people flood wal-marts everyday to take advantage of the low low prices.

It all comes at a cost.

The cost is our way of life in the modern western world.

It's not worth it.

I live in a union town, and I have seen what can hapen when the unions get too greedy and corrupt, but there has to be a balance somewhere, because you are right, these companies would slit all of our throats if allowed to further the bottom line.

Reminds me of the "dead peasant" insurance scam, they can and will find a way to profit on your very life if possible.

Quality of life, national pride, mean NOTHING to these companies. They are literally giving aid and comfort to your enemies.

Good post.

And whats the solution pray tell us?

Should a business never EVER grow after opening its 1st store?

Should the government FORCE a business to stay small?

Growing bigger, expanding and progressing day by day is in human nature. From horse run carts to Ferrari and from pencils to laptop and blackberries, its all an expression of the human mind. Growth is in the human genome. It despises stifling rules and regulations from a third party such as the government.

Government is the problem, not a solution. Its only natural that walmart expanded and became a giant like it is today. No person on this planet has the right to stop it or any business or person from expanding. Because if they do, where would it stop? It would turn into a socialist hell where people might not be happy but everybody would share an equal amount of misery.

Today if the government, unions, tree loving hippies succeed in stopping walmart, tomorrow they'll come after you. Even your 1 store would be too much so you better have only half of it.

Any concern that employs a million people is going to have some irregularities but the Wage and Hour Bureau and OSHA provide a great deal of protection to the average worker.

I highly doubt many are having to work "double shifts" as they are all getting reduced to under 30 hrs thanks to Obamacare.

And someone who plans their career around discount retail sales and thinks this totally unskilled labor will support them and pay a "living wage" is pretty delusional in this day and age. It's at best a part time job or supplemental as discount retail sales is NEVER going to earn enough to support a family of four. Nor shoulsd it.

Unskilled labor is only worth so much and is not a very smart course in life.

ETA The same goes for flipping burgers at McDonalds--not likely to ever pay very much as food industry does not either. And again, it's not exactly rocket science.

Wow, that was a long time ago! Minimum wage has been much more than that for some years now.

But I hope you did get some sort of training as unskilled labor will seldom pay much more than minimum wage.

When the dollar today has a value of only 0.12cents compared to a 1950's dollar.look to the banker's and corrupt crony capitalists as the men behind

I'm sure this will come as a big shocker to some of you union shills but I have know people who were not even worth minimum wage and proved to be pretty well unteachable. I have even employed a few myself.

Dumb as a box of rocks and either uncapable of or refused to be taught anything.

Hard for YOU to believe, I'll bet but such people do exist. And they are likely to be in unskilled labor jobs. And they have all the same rights and privileges of any other workers in this country and all that without union assistance.

Because they don't treat their employees like dog shit in order to squeeze out a few more pennies in profit. There is such a thing as taking it too far and Walmart has done just that.

I don't think unskilled workers have much of anything to unionize in the first place. Nor do I think people should try to make a "livable wage" from unskilled labor. It should at best be a supplemental position, starter job while getting some kind of training or education or semi-retired job as it is for so many.

So you think people in unions don't get any government benefits? That's pretty impossible with the sheer number of people in this country that receive some sort of government subsidy. Forty-seven percent is a high number.

I'm sure communists would like to see the back broken on Wal-Mart just like Twinkies and everything run by the govnerment. Hopefully you will not get your way about this.

Unions have done as much to force manufacturing and other industry abroad as anything else!

They have outlived their usefulness and been replaced by wage and hour laws.

And I agree with Debauchery--we are never going to agree on the value of totally unskilled labor which is certainly what Wal-mart is.

It was NEVER intended to support a family or provide benefits or much of anything else because it does not possess that kind of value.

Hard to accept I suppose but people STILL have to get some training or education or better themselves in some way or other to actually earn this "living wage" of which you speak. No, unions should not provide it for those who won't put forth that effort.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

You'd think they might have taken note of the Hostess/Twinkie bankruptcy and found a clue.

Do some research with an open mind if you can
You will see that management (the bootlickers love them) were culpable in this whole debacle just as much as labor if not more.

They got theirs though didnt they?

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.
 Quoting: Bluebird


Every one of those protestora was a potential shopper. That potentially was shopping. It's not like they said they were boycotting or even getting active or violent. They were on a big group shopping trip.

I belonged to a Union.

The Communication Workers of America.

The most miserable little sh*tbags on earth.

The people who say they only give a care about the union dues are correct. They allowed AT&T to treat us like sh*t while they moved our jobs to India. They didn't care. You think they would have fought for us but they saw us a group of workers about to fired.

+100 on CWA. They suck major ass. Take the dues money and fuck it away on "conventions", and donations to the Democratic Party.

I worked for Walmart a long time ago getting $3.75 per hr. minimum wage. They loved working you 39 hrs a week or less. No benefits, no nothin.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26298099


i don't give a damn about wal-mart quite frankly, but i do have to ask what kept you there if the work and the conditions were so poor?

is it wal-marts fault if one has no ambition to better one's self? is it wal-mart's fault if one does not get an education and aspires to a better job? in my opinion they pay you what you are worth and they owe you nothing more than that. YOU owe it to yourself to do better.

so because you chose not to better yourself we should all be higher prices for stuff to accomodate a union in wal-mart?

by the way for all you wal-mart supporters you may want to check out who sam's son supported in the last election....it wasn't romney.
