    Exactly, employees come first, I've known many businessmen who dipped into their own savings without the ability to pay themselves. They didn't once short an employee on pay, it's ethics. People confuse business best practices and market principle with "fairness" and it shows a severe lack of knowledge of both business and economics.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Riiiiight. So they should make more than a convenience store or fast food employee simply because the company does better. Sorry...non to low skilled jobs should get paid based on what the job deserves, not how successful the owners business model is. You on the other hand are free to start a business and pay employees whatever the **** you want. Let us all know how that works out.

    These people are the people that make Walmart function without them there would be no Walmart.

Suckers.
    you speak on a subject you know little about.

    No, "they" are not. 50 employees out of 1.4 million is nothing. I would say it is the union wanting in so that they can stave off disappearing from the US landscape.

    no rebuttal needed, you are ignorant on the subject, and a waste of time to debate.

    Quit whining about attacks, hit the triangle or shut it.

    Maybe Walart should cut workers wages and use the money to get fire exits in factories in Bangladesh. It isn't fair that American workers eat like kings while Bangladesh workers burn alive.
