    Union advocates especially those astroturfing Wal Mart are trying to force unionization through a very dishonest display....Not from overwhelming support of the workers, but rather they want it so they are making much up out of thin air.
    How do you know? I mean, you've research or polled Walmart workers?

    Well, for one, the totally staged astroturf on Black Friday, using bussed in agitators, and only 50 employees walked out for the protest out of 1.4 MILLION employees. Secondly, my son works for the Wal Mart here while he goes to collage, and according to him, his co workers think it is a joke.

    While you be exaggerating again, if true it says nothing factually about the bushes of Walmart employees. And your son is too small a sample. I know several workers at several stores, who say the opposite (and my sample is too small as well).

    i am actually in favor of walmart unionizing,walmart would go out of business and no company would ever unionize again after unions destroy the countries largest retailer and possibly the only company in america that would die overnight from unionization.

Then tell me what a more skilled position like check out person or receiving clerk should make. And dont weasel out and say you dont know. Give me an answer.
    They should make $10.65 and have benefits and the guarantee that you and the other employees will have an opportunity to get a promotion over an applicant outside the company. They should offer a one time scholarship for every full time employee who's been with the company longer than 1 year, and it can be used for their kids if they choose so.

    The community programs would include assistance to help with local food shelves and shelters, and we would ensure that any employee would be able to access help in any manner should they be very ill, have an accident, or lose a family member.

    I could do that because my company would have net sales of over $400,000,000,000 a year.

    Crazy ideas, right?

    In that case, you should start that business and see if you can compete with Walmart and Target. Good luck attracting customers with higher prices then your competition.

    I don't "be exaggerating" What is it that you think I am blowing out of proportion? And "the bushes of Walmart employees"? What does that even mean?

    Wal-Mart claimed today that the much-hyped Black Friday protests at the non-union retail giant fizzled out, with only 50 associates – their term for employees – taking part. The United Food and Commercial Workers union, which organized the protests, disputed that figure though. It said “hundreds and hundreds” joined in at events across the country. The Washington Examiner could not find an independent estimate for the protests.
    Even assuming the UFCW figure is correct, that is pretty small given that Wal-Mart is the nation’s largest employer, with 1.4 million people working at its stores. Wal-Mart also claimed at least 10 million transactions since its stores opened late Thursday, which would make 2012 its best Black Friday ever.

    It was an astro turf failure....No one gives a **** about the temper tantrums of communist dinosaurs ranting for bull **** demands that none of the employees comparatively could care less about.

    $400 billion in revenue, is not $400 billion in profit.

    While you MAY be exaggerating, the number on the line isn't equal to how many want a union.
