Wal-Mart employs only 39,000 people? You would think that they would need more than 10 people for each of their 4000 stores to keep them running. Mo wonder their checkout lines get so long. Seriously, does anyone know when the Cherokee store is scheduled to open? Has construction started on it yet?

You should have been flying the flag at half staff for the past 20 years because that is how long manufacturing jobs have been moving to China, Mexico, Japan, etc, etc,. I don't give a dam what store you go to they all have foreign made products. They have no choice, we don't manufacture anything in the US anymore. Look at items in your home and see how many were made in the US! The only problem we have here is the stupidity and ignorance of people that don't know what the real world is today.;

Wal Mart employs 1.2 million full and part time employees in the US. Their turnover is 44% which is lower than retail store average. Part time workers make up approx 30% of the work force. New hires are 600,000 a year.

Lots of drunks and potheads and meth attics and dope heads!!! Lots and lots of them, oh, and diabetics from all the alcohol abuse, feel good that they are getting a walmart, feel bad if they are able to sell alcohol. Might hurt all of the bootleggers on the res but hey, we all have pasts. Cherokee has the trail of tears, blacks have slavery, and the whites have the minority race in America now. Oh how the tide has turned!! Be glad that native Americans can salvage a little for themselves, they do have good people there, Sampson Lossiah was one of them and I heard he was killed by his sister and her kids, so much for Indians taking care of their own :-)

Seen a cartoon once, two pilgrims were talking. one said to the other about the Indians" lets give them beads and alcohol and take their land". Behind the pilgrams two Indians were talking, "let's give them gambling and alcohol and buy it all back". Now WAL-MART wants the land, how will a huge building, acres of pavement improve the the quality of life there. Cherokee has one of the purest rivers in the nation. That is where the runoff from parking lots end up, in the creeks and rivers. Drive by Drakes shopping center and down by Lowes in Franklin. Trash is everywhere!!! I think EVERYONE needs to make a living but at what cost? Do you want your town and community looking like all the others? Plan carefully, you have a unique community with some of the oldest memories on the planet. Do you wish your community to be remembered because you have a WAL-MART? Are a few beads and dollars enough for your birth rite?
