    Yes, they do. Apparently though it is not a pressing need for the majority of employees for whatever the reason. It seems only more important to Unions and those not employed by Walmart.

    I've always wondered how many Union proponents are actual Union members.

    Kroger does not pay what the Union wants Walmart to pay.. but if successful, it would allow a push against Kroger to increase wages... who would that benefit and for how long after all other wages were proportionally increased ? No one. All costs would increase without increased benefit.

    Seems a waste save for the smoke and mirror effects applicators. .. If you get my meaning.

    Great day to ya' H

    i was a member of UAW for sixty days about fifteen years ago. then the warehouse fired a bunch of us on the last day of our probationary period and brought in temps. union tried to fight it; there was nothing they could do, though.

    if i were to organize Walmart workers, my demands wouldn't include base pay. i'd ask for better control over schedules and more opportunity for promotion and raises.

    Interesting, Allowing employee influence over scheduling would be a management catastrophe... but I did look into promotions a little. It seems almost all, a very high percentage, of Walmart management come from inside the existing organization.

    To me, it appears a union is trying to resurrect itself by beating a dead horse... same with fast food organization.

    Ahhh well, it's not up to me.

    I would. It would be the next in a long string of businesses that have determined California is too messy to do business in. Perhaps the union could hire all of those unemployed people to protest there being no employers, or available goods and services.

    A Wal-Mart employee can get by with a second job, however it's near impossible to take a second job when Walmart changes the employees schedules from week to week, which is a strategic move on Walmart's part. If an employee is working two jobs, adding up to full time hours, that employee doesn't need supplemental welfare and Walmart is no longer a consumer of Taxpayer supported aid. They know exactly what they're doing keeping their employees in the poorhouse.

    See highlighted above

    Could you elaborate the specifics on exactly how that works ?? Is there any math available to show that?

    I wonder how the welfare stats and expenditures would look if Walmart was not employing people.

    Jus' thinkin'

    And employees have the right to organize and collectively negotiate such things if the employees don't like such dictates. Employers have no more right to a work force than workers have a right to jobs. IMO it works out best when neither side has the power to dictate to the other.
