    Yes, because we all know that those jobs aren't inelastic and highly competitive.

    Seriously believe that?

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

    I disagree with this:

    The judge also ordered the company to change its dress code for California employees that restricted employees' ability to wear union shirts.

    This meant on the job if you explore it. Yet it is WalMart's policy to not allow any clothing or pins of any kind with political or ideological slogans. I think an employer can set a dress code that excludes controversy and non-business promotion.

    Could managers where anti-union clothing and buttons? Could employees?

    If this applies to WalMart, it applies to anything political and economic - thus employees could wear shirts saying homosexuals are going to hell, vote Republican, the Pope is the Anti-Christ, Eliminate Israel or anything else.

    They take out insurance policies on their employees. Can you imagine a more evil way to make money?

    Pay your employees **** and make them work ****ty hours - many will not be able to afford or get insurance. These employees will, of course, be higher risk of death due to poor standards of living and lack of health care. Employee dies, you collect, everyone wins. Except the employee.

    The few people I've known who work for WalMart had no complaints - and it seemed like most felt their alternative potential employment and previous employment was worse. Employment isn't in isolation, but rather relative to the alternatives for employment. Who we hear complaining are people who work for Dollar General.

    The insurance policy thing really sucks and should be outlawed.

    Step out of the echo chamber and look at reality.
    The average pay is well above the minimum wage.
    Do they still take out policies to this day, or do you know and if not, when was the last time it was practiced?
    I know they didn't have a policy on me.

    But, back to the post to what I responded to.....nice deflection.

    Absolutely. However, the company has a right to refuse to pay what is demanded and replace those employees who will not work at the wage being offered. Most employees don't understand that if they go on strike, they can be permanently replaced - unless there already is a contract says otherwise. The company also can close the location and open an alternative location.

    They don't do it any longer, haven't for over a decade.
