    Websites paid for by unions are continually reporting mis-information . . . tried to disrupt the company's business this last weekend . . . conducting a huge media blitz against WalMart . . . busing in what I must assume are "bought-and-paid-for demonstrators" . . . why? Because they are salivating at the thought of 1.5 million unionized WalMart workers paying $20-$25 a month in union dues. They have no altruistic intent. As usual? It's all about the money.
    many a walmart worker wants better conditions, better pay and benefits, and the events of this last weekend were led by those who work at these stores, these protests were not just unions 'busing' people in to protest, actual employees were involved...it pains me to see so many people here on dp so poorly informed about what happened.

    Do you know what a wildcat strike is?

    Also unions are non profits ... and democratic, also low wage workers doen't pay that much more in dues than the cost.

    Also The organization doing this, Our Walmart, is not a union.

    Yes, and the employer has no option but to raise prices to account for the higher labor cost---then he loses sales, and has to lay off workers----so who wins?

    Have you followed what the unions did to Hostess?

    No he doesn't, he can cut into profits or executive pay ... short term, because if more companies unionize and get higher wages aggrigate demand goes up, meaning so does revenue ..

    This is why heavily unionized european countries have higher living standards.

    I've debunked the inflation argument over and over and over again, should I just repost the debunking?

    LOL, you obviously know nothing about unions. NON profit???? BS. Who do you think pays the union bosses? The union's profits go into the bosses pockets.

    It's pretty much all over the internet. Just Google:

    Other demonstrations were smaller and less disruptive. At a Walmart on Chicago's South side, just one employee from the store's nearly 500 staff took part in the demonstration, according to Walmart. There, four busloads of protesters marched outside and were not stopped by police or security guards.
    OUR Walmart, an organization backed by the United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) union, said it counted 1,000 protests in 46 U.S. states, including strikes in 100 cities - figures that Walmart said were "grossly exaggerated."
    How would the UFCW even know this unless they had organized it? At least be honest, Randel.

    Legally non profit ... also I don't see that many Union bosses in the fortune 500, also union leadership compensation is DEMOCRATICALLY CHOSEN.

    Have you accounted for the massive subsidies WalMart is receiving from the taxpayers?
    Government should not be subsidizing business.
