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.

I agree that unskilled labor isn't exactly rocket science, however there are ways to treat employees well and then there's Walmart. The perfect example is Costco. While i realize their clientele is different, it is mostly unskilled labor as well. Costco stock is through the roof, their customers are happy, and their employees have never threatened to form a union. Why do think that is?

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.

Let me ask you this, who do you think should be paying for the medical benefits of Walmart employees? Should it be you and me? Or maybe they just shouldn't have any, they are just minimum wage workers anyways right?
