    Most of them are not employees but union activists. I love the union folks carrying signs in front of Walmart with $15.00/hr. demands on their signs. Why not $20-25/hr.? Why do part time people need 15 if they need that much why not go for full time? How many have have high school diplomas/ If they DESERVE that much why are they not making that much?
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Socialism is waking up, at noon, on the floor (nobody makes beds anymore), in a house that you share with 15 other people, leaping up startled by loud rap music, dressing in ripped jeans and an old t shirt (none of which have been washed), with two different shoes, with nothing to eat but maybe 1 dry bean, brushing your teeth with nothing but water (toothpaste isnt around anymore), amd fighting traffic to get to the welfare office where you essentially steal a whole bunch of money from someone else, and believe you are entitled ti do so. Eh.

    There are plenty of illegals that'll do it.
