Walmart customer union hypocrisy

This Saturday I was bored so I decided to take a little drive. There was a ford truck in front of me with a union 151 bumper sticker that turned into the Walmart parking lot. Surely, I thought they might be going to White Castle but I was curious, and as I said, bored so I turned in as well. Low and behold they went and parked in the Walmart lot and walked in the store. That got me thinking so I drove around the lot and counted 14 cars with pro union bumper stickers. I'm sure I will be told that I'm lying or to get a life, but that's what I saw. I thought unions were supposed to support their brothers, not companies that exploit cheap Chinese labor.

Thoughts?

unfortunately, unions are quickly becoming a thing of the past. probably the last fight for the middle class was the strike at caterpillar joliet last year. there is very little solidarity anymore.

That was me in that Ford last Saturday. I seen you following me on Rt 30 so I ducked into the WalMart lot to get away and when you followed me I went inside to get security. We stood in the doorway and watched you cruise up and down the aisles of the lot. We were just about ready to call the cops but you left. That's a nice ride you got - I didn't think they made lavender Yugos.

Jungle. ..I pointed that out 2 years ago and was attacked as a liar for stating it. People all want to pay less, it is what it is.
