    They can have some positive effects, even Walmart lowered prices by squeezing out the competition. Problem is in the long run Walmart has NOT helped the economy because what Walmart sells only accounts for 20% of what Americans spend money on.

    Without adequate income bye bye housing, utilities, education and healthcare. None of which Walmart marketing strategy provides.

    Cheap goods yes. Affording what most Americans need? No. It hurts the economy, driving down wages.

    But this just begs the question. Why do you think stifling competition is bad?

    As a union sheet metal worker, I make twice what most untrained workers make. But I am certaibly free to quit and go work for a non-union business or even start my own.
    Not a bit. I watched my Father work his butt off when he was in a Union. And when they went on Strike, he'd join the other poor guys "marching" around the Plant. Freezing their collective butts off. The Union Rep showed up in his Cadillac, opened the trunk of his car,,,and handed the Men bags of Potatos. He told them all "Good Job Men", and then drove off.

    Of course that Bastard was still drawing a full Paycheck, from their "Dues". Dad got tired of being used, and quit the Union. He NEVER looked back.

    We're discussing competition. Walmart is an example of someone who seeks to dominate the market by it's low prices- Walmart is MAJOR anti-union.

    Besides, I like my jewel studded golden crown. I love a guy who uses latin.

    Not to mention that the strike was clearly illegal according to the Hatch Act.

    This might have some shred of relevance if I had mentioned Walmart in any way, shape, or form. But I didn't. Hence, it's a non-sequitur.

    Wal-Mart is nothing but another Liberal whipping boy to the left. Liberals just love to attack big business, big oil, big pharma, etc. etc. They hate success, they hate entrepeneurship, they hate the private sector.
