Walmart denied her workman's comp claim because she "was not in her department" at the time of the accident. She was told if she
wanted to appeal she would be fired.
I honestly do not know whether I canbelieve such a story. The most serious accident I ever saw at work was a man close to your mothers age fall from a
ladder in the freezer and land on his head. He survived. Did crack his skull and had to be hospitalized. It was all covered by the company.
And his time off was also paid, at an avergae rate of course.
I am not necessarily calling you a liar, but it just does not seem typical to me.
In any case, all the horrors our typical anti-socialist characters enjoy to describe of socialism (of course from people having never lived in a
socialist state that was NOT
being economically crippled by the most powerful capitalists on Earth that have ever existed in recorded history)
seem to forget where they got those ideas from.
they come from the everyday true stories of our capitalist system that exist today. when the soviet Union was finally destroyed, Eastern Europe and
Central Asian economies suffered horrible effects afterwards, and they still suffer them to this day.
If I won ten million dollars today, I would gladly give away 7 million of it to my immediate local community, because I know where every single penny
of it can go to make this city a better place for those who will benefit from it.
I work at Wal-Mart so what? You know what I do every Christmas? I buy ten packs of socks and t shirts @ Wal-Mart and I stuff them in a backback. Get
on my bike, ride to the underpass by my house and hand them out to the few homeless people that consistantly beg on the side of the road.
What if ten thousand of the $30,000+ citizens donated at least 30$ out of every paycheck to a community charity organization? If that were half a
million dollars in a single month, it could very well go a long way to significantly reducing the amount of citizens in extreme poverty in every city
(dont act like you dont have any in your city, because there are some in every city).
I know as a low-wage worker who gives at least $30 a paycheck to other people whether they need it or not, than someone who makes close to three times
what I make (still considered low in most of America by the way) who gives away at least $30 a paycheck to people who dont need all the time can find
maybe $10 to give away to someone that does?
Start in your community where you can know it is doing good, not abroad where you may never even know whether it was utilized appropriately or merely
I love Wal-Mart because it is a great social center for the community. If associates like me ccan continue to influence its future, than we could even
see it, and other such companies creating new designs to further accent the community.
