    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?
    Why should a business cut its profit rate? Does an employer have a duty to pay his employees whatever they demand? Why do you think there is no longer a textile industry in the USA? Unions, my friend, unions destroyed thousands of american jobs. Why do you think GE and GM are building their products in China and Mexico? Unions.

    Wrong, union wage demands put them out of business. Please stop the lies, it makes you look foolish.

    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.

    I'm from the nailing leans planet.
    Well, let's see . . . when I entered ourwalmart.com into my address bar . . . here's what came up:

    OURWalmart.org is no longer in service.

    The union-backed organization which sponsored this domain is not affiliated with Walmart or Sam's Club and does not represent the company nor its associates.

    For factual information about Walmart, including its outstanding career opportunities, visit Walmart Corporate - We save people money so they can live better.

    En Español
    And, in case there's further questions about OURWalmart:

    "It's a question of education," said Josue Mata, a maintenance worker at Walmart in Wheatland, Texas, and a member of OUR Walmart, the labor group that is coordinating the strikes. "We have to show people that we're not just a crazy bunch of protesters."

    Because they have too ...

    An employer has no duty to do anything, neither do employees.

    The reason there is no longer a textile industry in the US or all of those things is because of the LOSS of unions, outsroucing happened majorly in the 80s and 90s, when Unions were being destroyed, because unions previously were making sure that outsourcing didn't happen.

    You're speaking out of total ignorance.

    i have, and you are very poorly informed...perhaps if YOU actually did some research, and not depend on the right wing talking points that are fed to you daily, perhaps you would realize this.
