    What condition?
    right thing? based on your sensibilities but contrary to the market. and if the workers don't like the wages they should find some place that pays them more.


    Condition-your suggestion that walmart would fail without low skilled workers

    thats a stupid condition

    Unions serve a purpose (to serve the greed of the union member for higher pay and benifits)


    It seems greed is good expect for those with low to moderate skils who should not be expected to show greed

    that is a subjective issue that would mean two workers of equal skills, doing the same quantity and quality of work might be paid different wages.

    Well like i stated earlier i think the minimum wage should be raised to a living wage... But yea since this is the thread about Walmart i thought we are specifically talking and debating about Walmart.
    Why would a union site link to anything that would make what they say less valid? Do your own homework. You'll see that people stand in line for WalMart jobs . . . many/most of the employees are happy there . . . they have profit sharing, health insurance . . . Do they talk about that??

    Look, if you want the minimum wage increased? That's one thing. But to center your wrath on WalMart when they pay as much or more as other similar retail jobs? You're just buying into the bull**** that the unions are putting out there. WalMart has over one million retail workers. Unionize them at an average dues of $40/month? That's gold. They will say anything, do anything, lie about everything, misrepresent and slander in order to get those dues.

    true enough. I suppose just about anything can be called "greed"

    Hmmm....I see. So an actual number has nothing to do with it eh? How convenient. That way it never ends...As wages rise, so do prices, then wages must rise again to compensate for the price increases, and so on, and so forth until the company goes out of business and no one has a damned thing....Great plan genius.

    the lefties never understand the concept of a global labor market and the ramifications of an American company being saddled with the idiocy of minimum wages that the competition does not face

    to get those kind of dues, at least in my union, UAW, wallyworld employees if unionized would have to make 20 dollars an hour, so your figures are way, way, WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY off base. my dues are 2 hours straight time per month, and well worth it.

    I used an "average" I saw of $40 a month. Make it $18 a month. $18,000,000 a month isn't chicken feed. Is it?
