“Walmart workers don't want any part of a union.
Unions want a cut of Walmart workers pay.
They work on a commission of sort..
All a union would do is put many Walmart workers out of a job.
Follow the money, always follow the money.
and the unions would make a Killion.”
“Big money has a way of buying the hope of the downtrodden.
Cause...I don't really know why.
But I think it is coming to an end.
The young don't buy it anymore.
They can see through it.
They have been eaten by capitalism for alot of reasons.
The young will lead us in a much better direction.”
“That is the key to not hating on Walmart.....No one is forced to work there.
it provides a start...and is a place to go to make some money.
To get back to work.
The unions hate it because they don't get their cut.
Pure and simple.”

“I even sometimes miss those days. Working hard, getting into shape and making friends in the break area. Now I'm sitting here in the office working in another country. :(”

“You do realize that WE the tax payers pay for Walmart's failure to pay people a living wage.”

“Walmart will go to extraordinary lengths in order to avoid unions. If you believe that workers don't have the right to organize, your statement would be accurate. Then we join the ranks of authoritarian and totalitarian states that don't allow their workers to organize for better wages and working conditions.”

“Its not about unions getting "their cut", its about the workers getting a fair deal.”

“You want to know how many small towns Walmart moved into, forcing many other businesses to close. So that limited the job opportunity also. If a company can spend 1.8 billion on advertising, I think they can pay a livable wage. That is good you got a better job, because the Walmart workers need your tax dollars to eat on. Isn't it great that you support a company paying so low of a wage, that you are working hard and paying part of Walmarts wages with your tax dollars? Unions never forced their people to go on food stamps or to go without benefits. You think the people that work at Walmart don't work hard? Someone must be working, because Walmart makes about 108 million an hour in sales. Do you think warehouses run themselves and shelves get stocked by themselves....oh, I get it, you think only a couple of people built Walmart. Without the people who work, there would be no Walmart.”

“"no one is forced to work there"
Yes they could easily find jobs elsewhere. Not.”

“Every human being, in any job, anywhere, deserves two things: Pay sufficient to survive without suffering, and pay sufficient to provide a minimum of human dignity. Anyone who would deny these things to hardworking employees, such as those of the world's biggest employer, is not a compassionate caring human being.
“That would be like telling squirrels not to climb trees.
Our whole culture was built on the concept of capitalism.
It made us what we ....were...and the wealthy won't give it up short of a bloody revolution.
Perhaps a slowww downtrend would work, but I doubt it.”

“Yes, downtrend, a hybrid of sorts. And as for a revolution there's more of us then there are of them they should be careful what they wish for.”
“Technology has replaced jobs.
Robotics has replaced jobs.
No one can dispute this.
It is a fact.
Slave markets that we buy from is a part of the problem.
But it was inevitable given we live in a capitalistic society and culture.
Capitalism never promised equality...just the opposite.
Capitalism thrives on cheap labor.”
“Negative or not..it is the way capitalism has evolved given the world we live in today.
We had our day in the Sun, fully nurtured after WW2 when we were the only modern and industrialized nation left standing. Capitalism is what it is.
China has merged with it.....We have sold out to the highest bidder.
Capitalism has always been for sale.
The USA is the best example of that...”
