    Do higher prices help the little guy, and the poor? Yes, or no.

Unions generally exclude company management from their membership altogether since they are generally given better salary and benefit packages than the union can obtain for its membership.
    i'd say that being a loyal employee should earn one some degree of "merit." give them something to work towards. they will be better employees because of it.

    yes, if slightly increased prices result in more opportunity for the worker.

    Loyal in what way? Simply by virtue of showing up?

    I usually work alone, so I am both laborer and skilled tradesman. But I have been a laborer.

    Besides, what does that have to do with my question?

    Probably not..it would help ''Walmart'' though..the little guys would never get to see a cent..

    And higher prices??..People shop at Walmart because it's cheap..if the prices were raised..Goodbye Walmart..

    There will always be someone cheaper...This is happening a lot in the UK..German companies..Lidl and Aldi..are undercutting our national supermarkets...the quality is superb..and for half the price..
