An ironic thing is, how many of us complain about how evil Walmart is, yet still find ourselves shopping there anyway?

Why don't other unions chip in and help? It might help the unionization of Walmart!
In 10 separate cases, the National Labor Relations Board has ruled that Wal-Mart repeatedly broke the law by interrogating workers, confiscating union literature, and firing union supporters. At the first sign of organizing in a store, Wal-Mart dispatches a team of union busters from its headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas, sometimes setting up surveillance cameras to monitor workers. "In my 35 years in labor relations, I've never seen a company that will go to the lengths that Wal-Mart goes to, to avoid a union," says Martin Levitt, a management consultant who helped the company develop its anti-union tactics before writing a book called Confessions of a Union Buster. "They have zero tolerance."
If the Walmart execs were actually smart and truly empathetic, they would offer to match any donation made by their employees.

I see this opinion allot, what most who share this opinion cannot
tell me is where all these high paying high skilled jobs are at.
Even if only say 50% of the min wage workers were to attempt what
you suggest it would destroy the market for those higher skilled jobs
anyway, higher supply of high skilled workers means less demand and
as we are already in a high supply of unemployed college graduates
with debt i really don't think adding more is a good idea.
Another thing that has been bugging me lately, how can any human
being be worth millions or even billions of dollars. Like how could
one human being ever do enough work to justify that cost. The
honest answer is they cannot. We really need to open our eyes
to the fact that we are expected to shoulder the burden of the work
and give the majority of credit to someone who helped but was
not the majority contributor to the success of the business.
I think that this is a fundamental flaw with the idea of corporations.edit on 19-11-2013 by bloodreviara because: (no reason given)
The thing is, I went to college and got a real career. Cashier is NOT a career. My daughter is 16 and is a cashier. You can't support a family on an entry level job and you never could. Take up a trade skill or maybe work your way through college like I did. It isn't complicated.
That's essentially mocking them at this point. I hope those pigs choke on their money.
