About time the employees at Wal-Mart stood up for themselves,why should the hard working people at Wal-Mart work for nothing and the company make billions? share the wealth.

It can't happen in the first place and Wal-Mart would simply shut the store. And the days of unions doing more good than harm are long gone.

I agree totally. If I owned a business and they voted the union in then guess what, they just voted themselves out of a job because I'd close the business down then open under another name or go elsewhere, I mean after all it's MY business.

Going union would be like the tail trying to wag the dog! Big companies can make payback hell so if you are one of those who supprt unions, you better have another possibility of a job elsewhere after you win the battle and lose the war.

Pigs will fly first. Wal Mart will never allow it and I believe the teammates would vote no even if it were put to a vote.

I can pledge to all who read this I will do everything in my power to oppose UNIONS at every step. Do not vote for any candidate who has the endorsements of these scumbags.

I think union would be great for wal mart because they cant just fire you on the spot union would have to investigate and you are right employer would be secared to vote yes.Beside i would want the truth if i was a employer there and got fired i want to know why not because someone told the manager.

Yep that Union thing works real well. Just ask the un-employed bakers at the now closed Hostess plant in Memphis. They sure got there higher wages by going on strike. Walmart will never go union. You may vote it in but then they close the store and go somewhere else where want work and not bitch. By the way Tennessee is a work-at-will state.

Times have changed. It used to be if you got on in a union plant, you could do as you please because the union would demand a second, third, fourth chance whether it was being absent without leave, stealing, coming in drunk, fighting, or whatever. Then with automation, the workers demanded more money for less work and couldn't nor wouldn't see what was coming. Those old guys caused the factories to throw in the towel and either sell out, move, or go offshore. Not much left for the next generation of blue collar workers in Small Town, USA thanks to them.

The problem is the unions became more interested in dues than in what they were intended for,which was to protect the workers. For years the auto unions fought automation because it might cost jobs. In doing so they accomplished exactly the opposite by letting foreign auto companies come in to our country. If a Walmart store were to vote for a union, they would close it quickly. One walmart store doesnt mean that much to a giant corporation like that. Why do you think a union would try to organize a store. Money corrupts.

Of course Walmart would never allow unions to come in. The Walton's are BILLIONAIRES, why, b/c they keep unions out, employees part time with no benefits, and the payscale barely over minimum wage. Walmart forces us, yes taxpayers to pay for their employees insurance, food, and everything else. On average each Walmart store costs taxpayers $900,000 on welfare per year for its employees between insurance, food stamps, reduced lunches, and all the other welfare programs while the Walton's keep all the money. If that is the kind of place you like to take up for great, I'm happy for you. But at least give credit where credit is due. B/c of unions you have safety programs, vacation, 40 hr work week, 8 hr work days, and many many other rights you have that otherwise you wouldn't. I'm not saying unions are perfect b/c they aren't, but who is?

Woody not really sure what you mean? If the fact they are making Twinkies, great but if you think they are being made by union hands think again. Just google them. Only 25% of work force hired back and not one was a union member. Just facts.
