    Quite frankly. .. a post like that has no logical sense behind it.

    There are many documentaries, articles and websites that deal with this. That's one of the reasons so many people protested having a Wal-Mart in Chicago.
    I've not been able to find a like place, that has better wages and benefits than Wal-Mart. A Union would just be a pain in the ass for them.



    Wal-Mart - Sustainability Progress to Date 2007-2008 - Wages and Benefits
    In addition to what the market requires, we base wages on experience, skills, problem-solving and job accountability. The average hourly, full-time wage for Associates in our U.S. stores is $10.76.
    These wages, while competitive with industry, are in many cases entry level jobs. We realize that many stakeholders expect us to pay more, while others are concerned about our ability to remain competitive in serving our customers. We see ways to address both concerns. An example of this was our recent advocacy for an increase in the federal minimum wage.
    Every Associate is eligible to receive performance bonuses based on the performance of their store.

    Details of the various benefits include:
    Health Benefits: All Associates – whether full-time or part-time – can become eligible for health benefits with Wal-Mart, and all children of Associates become eligible for coverage as soon as their parents do. We offer a wide variety of health plan options to meet their differing needs. Every Associate who works in the continental United States can become eligible for individual health coverage that costs as little as $5 per month in some areas and no more than $8 per month nationwide. Moreover, beginning in January 2008, those who participate in our plans will be able to get more than 2,400 generic prescriptions for $4. Read more about Health Care benefits.
    401(k) Plan: Wal-Mart may contribute up to two percent of eligible Associates’ annual wages to a 401 (k) plan, after a 12-month waiting period. Contributions may be made even if Associates choose not to add money of their own.
    Profit Sharing Plan: Every eligible Associate who has worked for the company for 12 months may receive a company contribution of up to two percent of their wages to a profit sharing account. Contributions are made even if Associates choose not to add money of their own.
    Stock Purchase Plan: We contribute to Associates’ stock purchase by matching 15 cents for every dollar of stock purchased through payroll deductions, up to the first $1,800 in purchases each plan year.

    What are you fighting for? Against your own standard of living? Against unions? For Hannity to become richer? Who?

    Doesn't it bother you that your political beliefs are being crammed down your throat by Elites and Think Tanks who program you with rhetoric?

The Unions, along with their membership, are getting ready to pull it all out, which would bankrupt the bank. Looks like it isn't just Governor Walker who is willing to use a slash and burn strategy. The Unions, and their membership also have other targets which they believe they can put out of business.

    War has come to Wisconsin, folks.
    And I'm sure that's not the only bank they have money in. What do they do with all that money anyway.
