    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.
    Not since 1995 have they done that - almost 20 years ago. And the outstanding policies were all cancelled in 2000.

    Hillary Clinton was on the board at WalMart when they were doing this. Take it up with her and find out why the Board allowed it.

    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.
    I will say that the average pay at walmart is heavily skewed by people who have worked there way to long.

    I thought you weren't going to converse with me because I called you out on the torture thread. I was rather looking forward to that.

    Walmart getting called out on their oppressive labor practices. First judge decision since OUR Walmart was formed. I suspect more decision like this one to come not in Walmart's favor but in favor of the employees.
    Soooo, Walmart should encourage work stoppages? Asinine. Fire everyone and raze the stores to the ground.

    An idiotic post from you. Color me surprised.

    You didn't call me out on any thread. I asked you not to post to me in that thread again, and if you are, I'm ignoring you in it because your posts don't interest me. You aren't a moderator and don't call the shots on what we can and can't post about in a thread.

    I just pointed out your false post in this thread for what it was. Next time you want to lie about what WalMart is doing check and see who's posting here. Those of us who know the facts will call out your lies, which you ignored I see, for the lies that they are.

    Then the left will howl like scorched cats because they are too poor to shop elsewhere.

    You'd think, with all the threads in political forums, all the posts on social media, all the publicity on the three letter news media, that Walmart prospective employees would have sufficient data to not have gone to work for them in the first place. They did, so there must have some advantage not known to the rest of us.

    I've known quite a few Walmart employees. All I knew were either young people in their early career paths, or retired persons who enjoyed standing in the front of the store smiling. The first group either moved on or up. The second is still smiling.

    If you are a 20 year Walmart employee still making $10 an hour and expecting to get a Chinese made gold watch at your retirement, the problem is not Walmart.

    You get mad that I hinted you were a psychopath on the other thread, you call me rude, and then you say my posts are "idiotic". Don't worry, I won't report you to the mods, I'm an adult and I can handle insults.

    FYI, lying and being wrong are two different things. I was not aware that they stopped taking insurance policies out on their employees. I guess when they put off a vibe that they think their employees are pieces of ****, I tend to believe that they still do things that treat them as such.
