    Walmart is beng more than fair to these employees, 2 months paid vacation and opportunities to transfer to other stores. The smart move would be to get in line for one of those transfers as soon as possible

    True, the NLRB was established back then, however, with recent Obama administration appointments, yeah, I think he has, or at least he's tried, to pack the NLRB with pro-union hacks.

    Yeah, thought so.


    Also seems that his recess appointments were considered unconstitutional, another example of how much this supposed constitutional scholar and professor follows the constitution. You'd think he'd know better.

    So to show how "pro-labor" they are you find links where decisions that may of been considered "pro-labor" were overturned? What exactly are you trying to prove?

    The Supreme Court finding decisions made by or promoted by Presidents is not rare with only Obama bud.... A guarantee you, you can find many rulings where the supreme court found policeis promoted or implemented by a president were struck down for all presidents

    Ahhh yes. So "fair". "Oops bad plumbing in 5 stores randomly. Looks like we need to close them all, give em 2 months of paid vacation, maybe rehire a couple, or transfer some to another store, here is 2 months paid leave..". Oh yea also dont mind that they only gave the employees a few hour notice, and I guess it just so happens that these workers were the ones involved in pro-union organizing, and its also not like Walmart has a history of doing this.. Real "fair".

    Permit
    I don't know how the permit process works in Oklahoma but out here they generally want to see plans before issuing the permit. If the plans aren't ready yet and the contractor hasn't been selected then I figure it's reasonable to assume that no permit has been requested yet. Furthermore, if the plumbing problems were deemed to be critical (ie. fire suppression system) then it would make sense to close the store even before the plans were submitted for permitting.

    I seriously doubt the decision to close the stores was spur of the moment. If plumbing was an issue they would have had inspectors look at the problems to see what needed to be fixed and decisions would have to have been made to either just close the for awhile or just work around the problem. A closed store is a loss of revenue, so they would want to expedite the process of getting things fixed in order to reopen the stores quickly. So they would have had plenty of time to draw up plans and get the permits.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Walmart claims this isn't a simple plumbing repair.

    Permits and inspections for major and even some minor repairs are the norm. A plumbing repair requiring 6 months down time in a large building would almost certainly require a permit and inspections.

    Let me get this straight...

    Store closes for "up to six months". Employees get two months of paid time off and twiddle their thumbs for the other four months. And you call this a vacation? Are you a graduate of the Karl Rove School Of Mathematics To Make Yourself Feel Better?

    Employees could try to transfer to a different Walmart location during that time.
    You're easily fooled aren't you?
