The solution is simple , all you have to do is quit your 8$ job and go to work for Wal Mart for 11$ an hour. (although Im sure they do not start at
Then you can let us know how that works out for you.
My point here is not really to slam you OP , but its to say that how do people making 11$ an hr at Wal Mart hurt you in any way?
Does it take any money out of your pocket at all?
No! It actually puts more money into average peoples pockets with which they can spend more money (albeit largely on essentials) and that will boost
the overall economy.
Ok ok, I was just gonna leave this thread alone but you are about the 30th person with this response. Everyone has repeatedly been viscious and close
minded to the whole situation that I just quickly gave up because EVERYONE seems to be missing the point. Not too mention, it would also appear that
barely anybody has read the article thoroughly enough.
In the article, you will find that at this "protest" specifically, only one Wal-Mart employee had shown up for the protest. That's what got me
thinking, and here's why. Wal-Mart has been in the news REPEATEDLY over the last ten years about them being the biggest company with the MOST
"underpaid" employee's. However, These recent "protest" are void of the most important part of a protest. That being, EMPLOYEE'S PROTESTING!
The reason for that (And I being one of these "type" people) is because these type of employees are typically, uneducated, Ex felon's, welfare
recipients etc etc. They KNOW what's out there when it comes to jobs and they're not complaining. Not En MASS anyway. Because, They, like myself, know
that if you go anywhere else, the "prospects" are not gonna be that good. Now, I didn't include many articles pertaining to the same protests, but if
you do a little research, you will find that the protests were all about the same throughout the nation. People protesting, not EMPLOYEE'S
Now, a person who's somewhat educated and actually has read the article (and hasn't just parroted the general consensus) would look at this and say,
"hmmmm, that's odd, I wonder why, hmmmm, let's discuss it". But obviously that is too much for the average ATS'er.
Anyway, my tough talk aside, I DID in fact think about this. WHY are people who are not affiliated with Wal-Mart, protesting Wal-Mart? Well, THAT's
what this thread is about. Any reference made to my felony was in response to ONE guy who was complaining about something off topic. I believe it was
along the line of "Why Am I "complaining" about it in the first place."
So, with THAT being said, I will conclude with why I titled the thread what I did. It is my general consensus that these "people" are protesting in
response to media newsbits over the years. They are not affiliated with Wal-Mart nor do they realieze that the employees are getting an average wage.
Are the Over paid? Definatley not, however, these employees (generally speaking) are the types of people who's only alternative is to go to the
factory or McDonald's down the street and surely be paid minimum wage with next to no real chance of advancement. So, They're not complaining. AND
THAT'S SAYING ALOT!
So, when you have have any article that states that, "Wal Mart Employees protest nationwide." And you come to find out that Wal Mart employee's are
NOT protesting nationwide. We just may wanna call it one thing, BS.
I hope I've cleared this up for you and all the other people who've taken the time to trash me and make fun of me when instead they could've (god
forbid) opened up their mind and burnt a braincell or two over a good subject/thread. Instead of mindless drivel.
Not you specifically sir, but this whole community of people has left me with a sick stomach and a grim outlook on the way people go about filtering
information. It's instead been one big "hatefest" and a waste of time. If I was halfway in the know about how to work my OP status, I would erase this
Ohh BTW, My apoligies for those few of you who did in fact ponder this wonderful and interesting subject for reasons I didn't even imagine. Kudos and
stars to ALL OF YOU!
