    Also without people like these "whiners" the Walton family would never have made it, after all these "whiners" are the ones that make the company function.

    Well enjoy your weekend, and your 8 hour work day, and safe working standards thanks to those "whiners"

    I know. All that whining about the media, Obama, the moochers, tax rates, healthcare reform and atheists sure gets old. Good to see we agreed.



    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    LOL!!!

    Every day is my weekend...if I so choose...and I haven't worked an 8 hour work day in quite some time. As far as safe working conditions...I won't work in a place that I deem to be unsafe.

    And I don't need to whine about it.

    Yea.... Ok... Just enjoy your weekend, and enjoy those safe working conditions because we all know that without these regulations the work place would be real safe, and enjoy no child labor, enjoy your overtime pay, enjoy your worker comp. I mean based off your string of knowledge these were all brought about by "whiners".


    And I don't need to whine about it.
    Never said you needed to "whine" about it.

    Isn't this a fair indication that they're pretty accurately paid though?

    So, what should they have done? Raise the prices of twinkees and ding dongs in order to pay wages higher than the jobs being performed were worth? Decided to forego profit and just break even? What exactly do you want?

    the unions had their place in the 20s and 30s. now those things are law and the unions are not needed.

    CSR is the idea a business is part of the community and giving back is not only good for the bottom line in the long run but generates good will and positive PR amongst the community.

    Its not an ivory tower concept. If bad PR were put into dollars every incident of bad PR costing 1$ would cost you 5$ worth of advertising to correct.

    Your inability to not know what the sam hell you are talking and do so with authority is amazing.
    Are you suggesting Walmart doesn't care about its PR?
