    I've already posted a few times in this thread what my experiance at Wal-Mart was like. Why continue to repeat the same things over and over?

    Do you want the govt to set a cap on CEO pay? CEOs sole function is making the company survive and make money for the shareholders. In the Hostess case they decided it was better to close the doors than to have a company losing money due to union demands. Thats exactly what would have happened to GM if obozo had not bailed them and the UAW out with OUR money.

    Re: Walmart workers demand better wages

    Last I heard Texas was part of the United States where you were free to leave your employer for one that you liked and respected. I hope you told your mother to quit immediately so someone that wouldn't mind working for that poor management could have the job?

    Thats an entirely different argument then "SCREW THE CEO, its so unfair!" I don't have a problem with CEO's making a lot of money, but I do have a problem with CEO's making it rich while they drive a company into the ground. Honestly, perhaps corporations need to be redone to act more like a normal business, where those who own the business are responsible for its management. CEOs need a personal stake in the companies success/failure if we expect them to be well behaved.

    You mention "medical" but strangely left out the details. Details like how the company will strategically schedule employees to fall just below the threshold of being eligible, or the fact that you're not eligible at all for the first two years of employment. Or the premiums.

    Only about half of Wal-Mart's employees get healthcare through the company. You and I pay for the other half.
    I would imagine that almost everyone working in retail that is not management and not commission would qualify for food stamps, so what's your point?

    Oh I know what it was, but you clearly didn't think it through before posting. Maybe we're all subsidizing the retail industry?..

CEOs need a personal stake in the companies success/failure if we expect them to be well behaved.
    the shareholders own the business, the CEO reports to the board of directors, the board of directors give the CEO growth and profit targets and reward him if he meets or exceeds them, because when that happens the stock value goes up and the shareholders make money. most CEOs are also shareholders, so they do have a stake in the business.

    you really have no idea how corporations work, do you?
