I love it. The recent move to guarantee jobs for returning military was genius too.
Apparently the people who avoid Walmart are having an effect on their policies.
We have to live with Walmart.
We shop there. Fess up.
Sooner or later someone in our family is going to work there
or we are going to know someone who does.
Some people spend 60-80 hours a week away from their families and work 52 weeks without a vacation.
This is America? This is the best we can do?
Since we have to live with Walmart - lets get them to treat their employees better.
Machines don't suffer health crisis or have families to tend to.
Walmart should not be permitted to treat man like a machine.
We can't get rid of them or their already devastating effect on our culture and families livelihood but I absolutely think it is in ALL our best
interest to demand Walmart treat it's people fairly. In a decent and humane, and advanced society (which admittedly we are not) matters of human
dignity and integrity are addressed.
Employment is where we spend the largest part of our awake hours.
Employment is where we spend the largest part of our week, year, and lives.
Those CONDITIONS should be preferably optimal but at least reasonable, and not over time, very detrimental to our health. This is not too much to ask.
A person should be able to live on what they make.
Society should not have to pick up the bill for health problems caused by overly long hours and low wages, daily and repetitive exposure to florescent
lights and hard floors, and stress of insecurity for their jobs, health and welfare of their families. A job should offer personal leave time, breaks,
periodic vacations, raises as earned, supportive management, employee resources and finally but first and foremost - pay them commensurate with the
cost of living. This is what every employee deserves to be treated like a human and not a machine.
Radical but essential, Walmart Employees should get raises and vacation time and everything Congress sees fit for itself. Walmart Employees should get
a half hour of their shift to exercise. It is (usually) the job and NOT THE RELAXATION taking a toll on health. So I think the job is where health
concerns should be addressed.
Far more thoughtful consideration is given to the physical health needs of Filipino prisoners
than hard working Americans who have families to support.
Older cultures have learned, the cheapest and most effective HEALTH CARE is on the job daily exercise.
We should understand relationship of physical health to happiness and actually take into consideration happiness and best interest of the human being.
Otherwise we are killing grandma and grandpa ssssllllooowwwlllyyy but surely.
We CAN do it.
Why don't we?
