the unions want to push their socialist views to make walmart have union worker. And the union gets to make their money when employees have to pay their union fee.

Walmart went to court to tell the food workers union? to get off walmarts property. This isn't walmart employees, but an actual union that is trying to make walmart a union. And I know they were pushing for this for a long time.



Man, this just popped into my head. There was a store next to haunted trails, and it was some foreign named store, and there use to be protesters outside of it all the time. Late 1980s?

Why don't they deserve to make a decent wage you asshole!?

The union worker at the door that says hello to you about half the time you walk in the door went through training to learn how to perform that position and no one else could do as good of a job as that person!

The executives are making too much! Take money from them!

walmart workers are getting paid minimum wage just like union dept stores. Plus, they are saving money by not having to pay Union Dues.

I talked to a friend that works at walmart, and he says they get a bonus in each check if the store makes a certain profit each month. Don't know any union stores that do that.

That's based off an extensive study I've done over the past few years, keeping track of every greeting I received from the professional, union trained person.

I walked in twice on Saturday after forgetting something the first time.

First visit: No greeting.
Second visit approximately 17 seconds after leaving the first time: I received a greeting.

That's the extent of my visits to Walmart over the past few years. You can't argue with those numbers, it's science!

Let me get this right - Unions in retail stores - wtf! Then again back in 1983 worked at jewel on arlington hts road and golf a whole 2 months and had to pay some shitty union due - for what i dont know as i was in high school making $3.35 per hr - so im not sure what the union did for me - did they save me from being sodomized in the back? WTF did they do for me?

I walked off of that job - the only job i ever walked from - boss was a asshole - told me i had to stay and work late so 2 hrs after i was supposed to get off of work im in the back doing the bottles - sorting all the return empty glass bottles per distributor - in which i didnt have much experience so it was a bit foggy - so the prick keeps rolling back a cart full of emptys and when i thought i was done hed roll back a cart and say when your done with this one you can leave - then roll another one back - so i just said fucki it left the bottle cage open, wit the fuckin cart out in the back of the parking lot of the store and walked home - the dude calles me about a hr later and askes me to to come back to work to finish up the bottles - i told him fuck you and your bottles go stick them up your ass! My dad was like wtf - i told him what happened and he backed me - 4 days later got a job at Forest City in mt prospect - best damn high school job you could ask for!
