    If it got handed to the employee's? Are you nutz? There would be chaos without someone at the top. No company can function unless someone is at the top.

    Would you rather they just closed up shop? Fire all thier 1.4 million employees? They could you know. They have enough money that them or thier children's children wouldn't have to work thier entire lives.

    Wal-Mart style companies tend to have dysfunctional management, and promotion is more likely to be related to networking ability, favoritism, or (possibly) even sexual favors.

    If they have dysfunctional management, it's probably because they promote from within.

    What is a "WalMart-style" company?

    If you're a worker fired because you tried to organize your workplace how long exactly do you have to wait before your case is heard? It doesn't take long for people to realize that if you get fired due to illegal activity it doesn't mean jack if you have to wait years or never get your date in front of the board.
    Explain to me why you have a right to organize a union in my place of business, but I do not have the right to fire you for making such an attempt>

    It's pretty difficult to practice the right to organize if it results in a termination of employment. You could always take the crazy path of paying your workers a livable wage so that they don't see a benefit to organizing. It's what Walmart did with it's truckers and it's been effective.

    Looks like it was a bit more complicated than that.

    That hardly rises to the level of a hearty endorsement now does it? You make it sound like somebody describing a root canal.

    Yep, teamsters wanted to organize Wal-Marts distribution really badly, they tried for years until Wal-Mart bumped their wages and since then its been a non-starter.
