we are walmart and we have 10 departments. Cashiers, bakery, electronics, men's clothing, Women's clothing, sporting goods, toys, outdoors, kids Clothing, deli
so we need 20 people for cashiers, 10 people in the bakery, 6 people in electronics, etc etc. that fills the normal workers.
now I need 2 shift supervisors so that is 20 positions right there.
I need at least 10 department managers
there is 2 assistant managers
and the store manager.
you can't just promote people willy nilly without having the position open.
also not all people want to be promoted. if I don't need 21 supervisors I won't hire 21.
it won't raise their prices by a bit. average pay at walmart is 10-12 dollars an hour. you are looking at doubling that to 20 if a union is involve.
at least they will be asking for that then again the company doesn't have to comply with it.
if they get it then there will be more than a small price increase.
walmart already offers a better health insurance plan than obamacare does so that will be pretty hard to neogiate on.
how much do you think a person stocking shelves should make exactly?
how does that compare to the guy that sweeps the floor?
what about the cashier?
then there are professionals like me. how much of a raise should I get then? not that I work for walmart but my job is way more complicated then stocking shelves.
you are basically saying my job isn't worth as much as it use to be yet I have way more qualifications to do my job.
