Probably not, there doesn't seem to be a lot of union activity up that way.

While Rob Walton raked in at least $420 million in Walmart dividends alone last year, low pay and arbitrary scheduling force many of Walmart's workers to rely on public assistance to make ends meet.

In nearly all of the 23 states which have disclosed the information, Walmart has the largest number of employees on the public rolls of any employer. As reported by Mother Jones:

In 2004, a year in which Walmart reported $9.1 billion in profits, the retailer's California employees collected $86 million in public assistance, according to researchers at the University of California-Berkeley. Other studies have revealed widespread use of publicly funded health care by Walmart employees in numerous states. In 2004, Democratic staffers of the House education and workforce committee calculated that each 200-employee Wal-Mart store costs taxpayers an average of more than $400,000 a year, based on entitlements ranging from energy-assistance grants to Medicaid to food stamps to WIC-the federal program that provides food to low-income women with children.7

Walmart always counters these facts by talking about low prices. But the profits of Walmart are enormous. The Walton family, which owns nearly half of Walmart, is as wealthy as the bottom 42 percent of American families combined.8 An average Walmart worker, who earns about $8.81 an hour, would need to work one year to earn as much money as the Walton family earns in Walmart dividends every three minutes.9

All Walmart workers should go on strike next week. All shoppers should avoid Walmart like the sweatshop it is. Get a union in that shithole of a company so taxpayers don't have to help them feed themselves even though they work full time.

Corporations like Walmart help ruin the economy by not selling US made goods, essentially destroying manufacturing jobs and replacing them with crappy retail jobs with no benefits that allow workers to collect welfare. The only thing you can do is make it clear to Walmart that this kind of thing will not be tolerated.

Even if Walmart workers lose their job it is worth it in the long run if Walmart learns to be a responsible employer and learns the lesson of taking care of its workers and not using the welfare system to increase profits. The thing is we all need to work together. We should all boycott Walmart this year, however people are more than willing to screw someone else over to save a buck. Most people are only too worried about themselves to make an effort to improve conditions for all.

ALl shoppers should boycott Walmart this year. know it will never happen around here

I suppose if it was your job and you also had to be on welfare to feed your kids you would be ok with it.

Attitudes like yours is the main reason our economy is shot...."it's a job". Yes it's a job but employees deserve a fair wage for a hard day's work. Other corporations who don't do half as well as walmart offer decent jobs, why can't Walmart?

You are right, those employees are the Walton family members. But nobody else.
