    Re: Walmart Threatened Workers For Trying To Organize, Judge Rules

    About 6K of Walmart's 1.3 million US employees make federal minimum wage, so we are talking about less than one half of one percent of its workers. I little factual perspective is nice from time to time.

    I'm not sure how to answer that or support it when it's blatantly obvious. Examples of low paying jobs:

    Cashier
    Wait Staff
    Clerks
    Manual Labor
    Janitors

    Are you saying these could turn into decent-wage jobs?
    You stated as a fact that 25% is a requirement. I'm asking for support.

    As for your question. yes they could. You could become head casher, eventually store manager, then it's on to corporate headquarters. A corner office on the 5th floor, key to the private restroom. A week at the company condo.

    If you find yourself in a situation where that isn't happening, then move on.

    It's you, not me, that claim that these entry level jobs are exit level jobs.

    The person in that job could - maybe. If they are lucky and work hard. But the job doesn't go with them. That job will continue to exist.

    Do you not get that?

    How many make less than a dollar more per hour?

    Why dont you just get a job that pays twice what you currently earn?

    I'm asking you. You're the guy with all the relevant numbers.

    A lot of big companies have some bull**** corporate policy of giving new minimum wage hires a $.25/hour raise after six months, or whatever. All of these people are not technically earning minimum wage but are still affected by these discussions.

    You didn't factor those people in, I expect.

    I get that, and the job gets filled by someone else who is either content to exit at the same pay grade as the entry, a temporary employee who wants a part time job, or someone who looks at the job as an opportunity.

    I've stated. There will always be low end jobs. How you treat it is your choice.

    Still would be interested in the origin of the 25% fact.

    There was no need of me to factor them in because I wasn't speaking about them. If you want to talk about them, you tell me.

    In that case, your perspective is useless because someone making 25 cents more than minimum wage is very relevant to the discussion. Ignoring them is silly.
