    I suspect that has more to do with consumer demand for self-check out areas, or maybe just a way to start training customers to get used to self checkout.

    I really wouldn't think that Walmart would fire cashiers just for the purpose of voluntarily giving raises, that doesn't even make sense. Everything that Walmart does is about making larger profits, period.

    That is true and easy to back up.

    No, pricing is based on competitive pressure. Doesn't matter how much it cost you to produce and sell something if the guy down the road is selling the same thing for 20% less.

    I call bullsh%t.
    No right winger I know believes any such thing. I would say as a general rule right wingers know far more about how businesses operate than left wingers.

    For some time in these discussions about walmart abuses and organizing drives I predicted that the pressure would defeat them. Within a year the starting wage at walmart will be $10 an hour. This will of course increase the strength of the organizing drive and have a good effect on the drives for Mcdonald's as well.

    Nice work.
    I hope the Walmart employees who will be laid off can find some solace in their sacrifice.

    TDS was filing cabinets filled with employee profiles of these 500,000 Walmart employees, apparently.

    I don't know that I have ever met a Walmart empoloyee worth $10.00 and hour.

    What is the cost of living where you are? What would be the bare minimum amount that you would need to survive where you are, without any welfare?
