You can't blame them for not being motivated and showing up for work.$7.25/hr. for 20 hrs. week? Come on!!! No wonder people are applying for welfare.

If they strike i hope they have something to fall back on. You can bet any employee that strikes thursday, will be job hunting friday if they want to work.

Each and every employee knew or should have known prior to applying for employment with walmart, what the wages/benifits were/are, and have only themselves to blame for low wages and no benifits.

Obviously you are a Logan country scab that doesn't understand how unionization works. No wonder Logan Co is the arm pit of WV.
Well can you explain it to me, that is if you can stop calling names long enough.

Jobs like Wal Mart are a dime a dozen...you can get a job in retail making 7.25 an hour anywhere during the holiday season. Wal Mart employees everywhere should strike!! Maybe then the Billionaire Waltons will start to treat people with respect!

Since Sam Walton died,Wal-Mart is just another junk store. I've met the man in Arkansa years ago and I really believe he was an honest and decent man. The company has gone to hell since he has died and doesn't have anybody but greedy people running the company now. Like most places,it is whatever they can put in their pockets at employees expense.

No I have no ties to the company. I'm just like everybody else on here. I shop where I can get the best buy and the best product for my money and it definitely isn't made in China. Though sometimes you can't find anything not made in China.

Thanks for the correction. I do know Thanksgiving is Thursday. I meant shoppers should wait until Friday.

Walmart invests millions to make sure that their "associates" never unionize. According to Forbes, their CEO Michael Duke made $18,712,721 in 2011.

In the meantime, Walmart shifts its labor costs onto the American taxpayer by not providing livable wages or healthcare to its employees. In many states, Walmart employees are the largest recipients of Medicaid and food stamps.

Walmart IS the American WELFARE QUEEN.

But the larger question looms. Do Americans not care or are they too stupid to understand your point? Are they just happy to get those low prices at Walmart and damn the consequences. Since 47% of people dont pay income taxes, do they not care, since it wont raise their income taxes. Walmart can not raise workers wages and benefits without raising prices.

No they are not going to cut the salary of the CEO to raise prices. How many Americans do you think consider how and with whom they spend their money.
