    I disagree.

    I think it should be set to be somewhat higher than a person would get by living off of government largess. People who work should have more than people who don't.

    IMHO, that is.

    You are speaking of that which you do not know.
    There was no capitulation or gitting[sic] jerked.

    Not so. So stop with the dishonesty.

    No. You said it was based on your own multiple opinions. Not on Berkeley which you later introduces as deflection away from your previous statements.
    You clearly said ...

    Those are your words quoted above, and they do not at any time mention anything other than your opinion. Not Berkeley.

    Whether you think it is a logical fallacy or an ad hom is irrelevant to the reality that it is reason to dismiss it outright.

    No. I hold to reality which is the opposite of a fanciful imagination.

    Except I did, but you dismissed it.
    Your dishonest reply is dishonest.
    You haven't shown they deserve any such thing. Nor could you.

    No, they really aren't getting stronger. And with this move, unionization is dead. Like I said, they are just a company, and they react to the market. For them, besides reacting to market wages, they are also disarming the left's big, bad Walmart argument. This is a benefit for whoever the Republican nominee is. One less talking point for the left. And good advertising for Walmart.

    And the best way to do that is to cut government welfare. It should only be the bare minimum, and only for those that truly need it. Not a tool for the democrats to buy votes.

    Correct, with no government subsidies.

    No, it's proof that organizing drives work...

    it's proof Doug McMillon was serious about increasing wages ...like he said when he was first hired as CEO.

    sorry man, you can't give unions credit for this one... unions had exactly nothing to do with it.
