Walmart Strike Hits 100 Cities, But Fails To Distract Black Friday Shoppers

“Peter, what you say is correct except for the "anectodal incidences". Whenever a co. is forced to unionize the first thing they do is lay off/terminate workers to cut costs ( I have seen it happen in almost every case). I've been there, gone through that as a worker when I was younger, never got rehired so I moved on and did what needed to be done to provide for my family.”

“I wasn't referring to you in specific, if you thought I was I'm sorry. I was referring to the "Food Gurus" in general. Can we agree to disagree?”

“There is no disagreement. I don't think people should tell others what to eat; but it's okay to tell them why certain foods are bad or good.”

“zorkas,do you feel better about yourself by calling me a coward? If you do then I feel sorry for you. If you read the post, you'll see why she made a big mistake. THE "OURWALMART" IS NOT A UNION so she has no legal standing with the NLRB plane and simple. She was not a coward she was uninformed and it cost her her job. ”

zorkas on Nov 25, 2012 at 07:07:35

“I never said she was a coward just people like you . And to let you know in 1775 the United States was not a country but people with courage fought for it . So what your saying is the patriots were making a big mistake . Well in this case it was the people who wouldn`t stnd with her who are making a big mistake . In fact if you have the courage look up the Battle of Matewan .”

“Reid is not interested in mending fences, the past 4 yrs he has done everything in his power to stop anything that comes out of the House and then he turns around and calls the repubs. obstructionists. It's his and Obama's way or the highway. His idea of bipartisanship is if everyone agrees with the dems.. His state is one of the worst economies in the country yet the NV. dems keep re-electing him and state dems. in spite of themselves. The citizens of NV AND US taxpayers have paid for a $580 million freeway cut into the side of the hills from Reno to Carson City, against even the State Highway Dept's. wishes but pushed by Reid and state dems., that lops a whopping 6 mins. travel time between those two cities. So much for spending tax payers money wisely. The wind blows so hard at times that trucks, motorhomes,buses, travel trailers etc. must be rerouted to the old highway which sets down in the valley. Keep up the good work spending other people's money Harry (not!!).”

“She should have checked first, OURWalmart is not a union it is just a group of wanna be's so the NLRB won't even look at her letter. Her co-workers didn't join her because they needed a job and ,appearently, she didn't. She just tossed 8 yrs of empolyment out the door, maybe she can get a union job with Hostess as a baker ..... no wait ..... didn't the Baker's Union just throw 18,500 workers under the bus just to make a point, just like she has done to herself.”

littlejimmy66 on Nov 24, 2012 at 20:10:53

“You make a good point. Unfortunately some people disagree with you so much, they won't admit you are right. Zorkas forgets that slaves aren't allowed to leave, like Walmart employees. This lady is probably one of those that points to the back of the store when you ask her where something is.”

zorkas on Nov 24, 2012 at 19:32:56

“At least she wasn`t a coward like you and her coworkers or should I say slaves ?”

“Maybe not that drastic, but if it's your job that is lost it's exactly the same. Walmart is Walmart because that is what people want, that's how K-Mart, Target, Shopko etc. became what they are too.”

“Some reports say that a good percentage of those sign carriers didn't even work for Walmart and were bused in by unions. The unions stayed in the background until their buddy got re-elected and now they are making major noise at the expense of workers jobs (i.e. Baker's Union and Hostess, 18,500 jobs down the drain!!). Let's say Walmart did unionize, afterwords ask those workers who lose their jobs as a result how they feel.”

Peter Boehringer on Nov 24, 2012 at 19:01:54

“Same old line...that unionization will cost jobs, but that doesn't really hold up in the light of day. Yes, there are those anecdotal incidences, but on the whole, unions have raised wages across the spectrum, helped create the middle class, gave us the weekend, health care, safe working conditions, paid vacations, fair labor practices, the 8 hour day, etc. The owners would never have freely given these things, they had to be negotiated, sometimes at the cost of lives.”

denvr gal on Nov 24, 2012 at 18:58:41

“wa;mart will close thier doors on a store before they let a union come in.... they have and they will do it again. just Like Coors Beer.... no unions”

“Ah yes, lets utterly ignore the fact that these CEOs make substantially more than the average worker ... and are constantly giving themselves raises.”

“You can rest assured many of those supporting the picket line were being compensated for their time, it is called union support and it comes with a price tag.”

“Isn't it against the law to threaten someone with a weapon, even if they don't actually see the weapon? Maybe that guy should walk up to a cop and threaten him/her and see what happens, he'd be in jail so fast he wouldn't know what happened. But, since it's black friday, NEVER MIND !!!! does that make sence to you?”

“Let's see, John Sununu said the only reason Colin Powell backed Obama for President is because they are both black, sununu also said he wished Obama could learn to be an American. Newt Gingrich said Obama was a Kenyan anti colonialist, Beck said Obama was a racist who hates white people and then there are the birthers who claim he is not american born. And don't play games, all Fox news viewers know the code words and hate mongering. Everyone has seen the racist emails, and cartoons, with watermelons growing on the white house lawn, or a bone through the nose of a native with Obama's face, and on and on and on. And you want to listen again to some of the stuff, Rush Limbaugh and Ted Nugent, etc have spewed, just google their names along with the work Obama. don't play dumb, and please, please, don't assume the rest of us are.”

“The insuance companies will be more than willing to write those policies because there is a clause in each policy stating that the insurance co. is not liable if you are doing something illegal, hence an undocumented (illegal) alien is doing something illegal so, should they be responsible for a wreck, the co. is off the hook. They'll move on and leave the damage behind for the other party's ins. co. to deal with.”

“Great POINT- If you lie on an insurance app- or are breaking the law- you will NOT be covered- you also cannot insure a vehicle you do not own- but some agents WILL let you buy the policy- only its NULL if something actually happens.
