    The problem with the U.S. union movement is their weakness and reformist strategies.

    The people who work there chose to do so. Why limit choice?

    No... instead, Walmart should be banned from areas where it will do immense damage to the local culture and economy. Vancouver did this in the 90's, saving all of its independent businesses in the process.

    Walmart is a machine that doesn't care about human beings. Having a union is the last thing that will happen.

    People choose to work there, people choose to buy from there. It's not some sort of mafia.

    If people really hated it so much in those areas where it somehow does damage, they'd boycott it.

    That is terrible. Stores should not need permission from the government to exist.

    Stores can't care about human beings because, you know, they aren't sentient....

    Weather it should be banned or not should be up to the individual cities which Wal-Mart wants to move into. A Wal-Mart in the town were I live would help immensely.

    Actually some companies are considered to be a "person" for certain legal purposes. Don't ask me how. I just know it to be true.

    Considering the effects of market power and labor market coercion caused by severe inequalities, that's a rather utopian outlook.

    Re: Wal-Mart

    Wal-Mart operates with a pretty small profit margin believe it or not, and if unions come in and start to drive the price of labor etc up then that profit starts to disappear and when that happens, the jobs will start disappearing as well.

    Wal-Mart does not need to be unionized.
