    QUOTE Fenton

    Not Houston, PASADENA. PASADENA, TEXAS is a small city just EAST of Houston Texas and yes, it's filled with massive petro-chemical facilities.

    So Fenton got it right, Pasadena is an incorporated city east of Houston and is not governed by Houston. You have no idea what I did for a living but that doesn't stop you from speculating and showing just how little you know or understand.

    And by the way I don't live anywhere near Pasadena so it wasn't even a good guess

The sort of thing I used to see in America when a person OWNED the factory and had a personal relationship with his employees. Where they were treated like family, and in return they busted ass for their boss. They paid workers enough so they could buy other goods and those other factory workers could earn a living and buy your bosses goods.

    Corporations have made it impersonal, a mere numbers game. To satisfy the faceless stockholders who have no more stake in the business than their monetary investment and who therefore only care about maximum return on that investment, business managers act only on that imperative. So close local factories, reopen new ones overseas, outsource jobs, then open American outlet stores and pay $10 per hour but only let "full time" employees work 28 hour weeks...that's your American dream?

    Meanwhile your $14.00 shirt was made by a Bangladeshi employee who earned $0.18 an hour for a 12 - 15 hour workday and lives in squalor on starvation rations. That's what you want American workers to return to? Hell, if $0.18 cents had the same value here as it did back when you could buy a good horse for $20, I might be willing to work for that wage too. Sheesh.

    No. I think Marxist is a good lean.

    Could it be because that the average wally world employee makes $8.81 per hour as an independent market research(IBISWorld ) group claims? Which This translates to whopping annual pay of $15,576, based upon wallyworlds full-time status of 34 hours per week ?

    Which puts a family of four squarely in the poverty level and eligible for food stamps which the company store(wallyworld ) will be more than happy to accept.

    Where is that family of four without the job?

    And if that is the best they can do should they be breeding?

    Why would any private business respond positively to being dictated to by a bureaucrat in D.C. First wages, then what?

    What you fail to recognize is that Walmart evaluates employees after 90 days and gives raises to deserving individuals. It isn't business's responsibility to pay what you think they should pay but only what an individual is willing to accept. What makes you an expert on what someone else's living expenses are and who is making those wages?

    You don't seem to get it, private business pays its workers what they are willing to accept. Walmart is more than fair to their employees and promotes from within If you are making 8.81 an hour for long then you are overpaid. Most good employees are promoted and make a lot more than that. Many however are second income earners or single individuals. I don't think it is any of your business what a private business pays its workers so if you want to pay workers more start your own business and pay them whatever you want.

    Do you realize how big Houston is? It is the fourth largest city in the nation and it takes over an hour to get from one side to the other so as usual you have no idea what you are talking about. Stop being an ass
