    And no matter what the liberals say about Walmart, they do treat their people pretty damn good.
    Yep, you can only expect to get out of a job, what you put into it. I'm sure employee treatment is never due to their own actions.

    This thread is all about the pro union activists trying to get into Walmart.
    Walmart isn't a sweat shop and the management does treat people better than most
    union shops. I've worked for both and seen how the union has screwed up the management
    of the business. The management in both places I've worked that were union became intolerant
    and on numerous occasions decided not to resolve the problem with the employee
    but just told the employees to file a grievance. That's been my experience.

    As an employer I retain the authority to dictate employee attire during work periods.
    And allow smaller locally owned businesses to prosper again? We wouldn't want that.

    You realize walmart's profit margins are miniscule, right?

    I frequently work with or meet with the EEOC folk for our district. And when ongoing case law or examples of bad faith by employers are discussed, Walmart is nearly always mentioned. From overtime pay violations, discrimination, retaliation, etc, Walmart really has shown itself to be a terrible employer.

    I try to avoid the place as much as possible, they are awful...go to Costco instead...they take good care of employees.

    Yeah, that's very illegal. When a company does that they wind up paying out through the nose in back pay and fines. Organizing is a protected right.

    If a company is being organized there;s a good reason for it. There's a loggerhead going on about something.

    Yeah, but you're talking about 3 plus percent on $476 billion in revenue. 3% of 10 is a lot less than 3% of 1,000. Costco has 12% margin on $122 million and they're doing fine. Many of their stores are organized. Macy's is at 3%. Many Macy's stores are organized as well. What we'er talking about is volume of sales and walmart might want to let others drink from the well...

    You'll forgive me if I'm skeptical of your opinion of Walmart. My experience, from actually knowing people who work there, is quite different.
