I hope everyone of them that goes on strike are fired. Fired. FIRED.

Just like the liberal idiots that just made Hostess shut down.

Exactly. If they strike they will just fire them and hire someone who really wants to work. I know all our benefits are not what we would like but compare it to having nothing. It can happen and might.

The truth of the matter is you know what they are paying etc. If you don't like the pay or the benefits then don't work there. Every business is in it to make a profit if not why be in business. They could do like most and send it over seas then more ppl would be out of a job. Every place has pros and cons to working, it's life move on. Do like most if you don't like what's offered at hired then find something else.

I gave you some good advice and it's not my fault you are to blind to heed it. It's good that topix lets self-righteous fools like you run their mouth on here, because you wouldn't dare do it to someone's face. You are dismissed.

Oh yes, because getting paid $.34 above minimum wage to be a cashier or stock person is the worst. I work somewhere else and only get paid $7.25 for that. And we don't get raises unless we move up to be a manager. Yes it may only be 34cents, but uhm, that's alot more than some cashiers are making. so please, keep whining about getting paid above minimum wage to stand around and scan items all day. I do that right now, so i know its not hard at all. you literally pretty much just stand there all day.

Wal-Mart makes billions and sells so many items that raising the price of each item that they sell by 1 cent (that is 1 penny and not 1 percent) would fund a $1 per hour pay raise...3 cents per item would fund a $3 per hour per employee pay raise etc.-- oh yeah, that would run the customers away or result in massive loss of sales and bankrupt them.

Why do conserviatives try to make greed a virtue?

Unless you have worked for Walmart you have know idea what they have to do. You may see them with that hand held computer in their hand doing checks. Believe me they have to keep the whole department an are accountable for what comes in what is not accounted. They also know when items are stolen. Some things are sent to them that was never ordered, therefore they are always keeping their inventory up to par. Meeting just about everyday an rules change about that often too. For sure you know where you stand with them. They tell you often enough. For what they put up with, they should be paid more. Lots of crap for some of them. I realize some get away with more but most work there tail off. Former worker. Oh yes one more thing. Upc codes better be in the correct spot with the right price. According to the modual.

70% of the stuff in Walmart comes from overseas now. So overseas got most of the jobs now.
