    Look, you're just going to have to face facts: walmart has been forced to capitulate into raising wages. So the organizing drive is working out well.

    You should at least attempt to educate yourself instead of devolving down into nonsensical hyperbole.

    Your beliefs mean nothing to the reality. Moreover, I've not assumed anything. It's all proven in the OP article.

If they all go up to follow suit then we could see less demand for that wage rate employee. This may be compounded by large fast food chains such as McDonald's and the Yum Brands group (KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut... who as a group employs more than McDonald's does.)
    ... laborers deciding the value of their labor isn't any less arbitrary than executives deciding the value of their leadership. Service industries that fail to provide human personnel to interact with will gradually fall into disfavor among demographics who prefer a more public interface, which is most of them.

    so you've been a worker all your life.. good for you.

    you can, at any time, provide substantiation to your claim that Wal Mart capitulated to unions.... your opinion is not substantiation.

    Now you're just being a combative and baiting contrarian. You haven't the slightest idea what you're talking about. The OP tells the true story, as I have I and I'm no longer going to entertain your nonsense. When you start posting substantive points that progress a discussion I'll respond.

    combative against a person lying about what i believe or what my position is?.. you're damn skippy I am.... why would I not be?

    I would like nothing more than for you to stick to substantive points... but you don't have a history of doing such, so i won't hold my breath
