    Unions are working very hard to get people off of public assistance. I guess you want people earning peanuts, if anything and on the dole so you can gripe about how lazy they are.

    California's In & Out Burgers have been using that same ideological perspective for many years now and it's worked quite well for them. No wlamrt is going to use the same ideological perspective adn watch it work for them.

    You're just sour grapes about it.

    You seem to be confused.
    First of all, it was you who was dismissed.
    Secondly, what you provided had nothing to do with our exchange.
    Let me remind you.

    Yep! What you said was; My ..., my ..., (my) ..., not Berkeley ..., Berkeley ..., Berkeley.

    As for the article you provided citing Berkeley.
    Entry level wages were never meant to survive on.
    And frankly the consumer should not be saddled with any price increase because greedy unskilled workers want more than they are worth.
    What exactly do you and others not understand about that?

    So back to your original nonsensical statement. You haven't shown they deserve any such thing. Or didn't you know there is a difference between deserve and desire?

    Not. They raised wages. Not in concert with the idea.

    What's a livable wage?

    I hope they raise their prices accordingly now to offset the increased payroll expenses.

    I wonder how many of them work enough hours to be eligible for employer paid health insurance?
    So we can expect to pay lower taxes now that WalMart's done this?

So good for the organizing drive.
    Made up narratives about ' abuse " is not the same as abuse.

    You people need to realize that your agenda driven exagerations are not based in reality.
