The Federal Government is cutting off the union responsible and every employee that walks out of the store shopuld be terminated immediately for cause. If the employee doesn't like the wages or work policy quit, get a job somewhere else, Walmart didn't ask you to fill out an employment application, they offered you a job under their terms and conditions.
Why dont you try seeking out the documentary "Walmart the High Cost of Low Prices"
After finding out the lies, deseption, detruction and greed this organization has grown into you may change your attitude.

The corruption may start at the top, but it trickles down throughout the company. The only option for some of the workers at Wal-Mart is starvation. It is an environment ruled by unethical behaviour towards the workers. It is tantamount to slavery. They are making a fortune in this economy and the greedy practices of it's management has been allowed to run rampant because noone represents the workers.

It is about time the people of WV stand up and demand fair pay and benefits from WalMart. Unity is the key to a strike! Do the WalMart employees have it in them?

We will see! I support them!

Your an idiot. Ask actual union employees who benefits from a union. They'll tell you the union heads themselves. You pay into a union and have no say in what goes on. They spend your money on political bs. Ask any of the ARH employees that struck years ago weather it was worth it or not. Most would say no. Walmart offers nothing. It's not meant to be a career just like MCDs and other low paying jobs.

Being rich isn't bad.. that's what everyone aspires to, but why is it good for BILLIONAIRES to rig things so you and I pay medical care and public assistance with our tax money because they, again being BILLIONAIRES, won't pay it for their own workers?
Good question, how muchis enough?. Personal income for THREE Wal Mart family members is over seventy five BILLION dollars... That's more money that many countries have and WE pay for public assistance for a lot of their employees?

When they put it in our pockets, that's what is bad.

Do you really think the Billionaires of Walmart Corporations are concerned about a shut down? I don't think so! For every employee they fire, and believe it they will fire every one of them and Hire placements, because there is no way the can strike legally. Walmart doesn't care about loosing millions in a court battle, they are not going to let people push them around! How do you think Sam Walton got to be a Billionaire? He did it by being smart and fighting for what he believed in. The Walton family did not get rich by investing their money in Walmart, but by investing in other Co's. Ever who started this thread was just a troll, But Walmart is not going to let a hand full of renegades shut them down!

Why don't all stores, schools shut down thanksgiving week (Sunday - Saturday), and start back up on Sunday, the same for Christmas! Well, at least a lot of them could, some would have to stay open, like convienice stores, etc. Just an idea, give more families family time.

It's funny how most of you complain yet will be found in walmart every weekend and will be right there for the "door buster" deals.

Hey... you want low prices but complain about what they pay their employees/benefits. Look around, they are not the only nor the first to offer low pay/benefits.

At one time many stores were union and they went bankrupt because of competition having lower labor costs.

While unemployment is so high, they are holding all the cards.

Many of these places will cut back hours to less than 30 because of Obamacare. So it's not going to get any easier folks.
