<quoted text>Walmart is a product of itself. Many of the employees are there because they are at their maximum performance level based on their education or the road they chose for themselves starting back in high school. When the American consumer decided to start buying imported goods instead of items made in this country,many jobs were eliminated all around the country where these people may have had a good job at one time in a factory and were prepared to ride out their career there. As one after another factory closed or cut back,the former employees had to take what they could get and were in competition with younger BETTER EDUCATED people. As Walmart grew and grew,local merchants closed because people blindly took their business to Walmart and totally turned their backs on their on community and people were put out to pasture. At that point,it came down to Walmart or fast food places. The American consumer's buying habits caused the situation,not Walmart.
This is where you claim there isn't anywhere to work at one point, except Walmart- or fast food resturants. You can't blame anybody in general for holding down a better job & feeling better about it! That would be jumping to conclusions- which as you can clearly see you have already done!

Go back and slowly read that post over. Many people have to settle for that type of work mentioned because they are not motivated to get out and improve their position with a GED,trade school,or college. If people want to make Walmart and fast food their final career destination, then so be it. I applaud those who use those jobs as a temporary stopping point on the long climb up the ladder to a better positition,not just a "job".

Covered that point! G.E.D.- not really worth the piece of paper it's written on. Trade School, yes, but you have already mentioned that dispite these gov. programs- We- Don't- owe you anything! People have to work for it- to payback the money that they won't get because- WE_ don't owe YOU- anything! You're evauating you're comment to a different inturpretation! plain and simple!

BAD ATTITUDE. A GED on an application at least shows you have motivation to better yourself. The job market is filled with "Dudley Dropouts" who haven't mentally progressed since giving up on something as simple as high school.

You mention bad attitude, showing motivation, discribing some people that don't have any motivation, and complete your comment with a bad attitude. That type of counter productive behavior indicate, you need to get a G.E.D.

Walmart is an example. They do not want people with motivation. According to the documentary, employees are without medical benefits, some will even sit in a lunch room, without having lunch in order to save money. That builds a lack of motivation. Manipulation of Minimum wage, earnings is caused by the automatic tax increase,leaving the american working with an uneven scale of justice to live properly. Taking benefits away from employees, will force the working for living community, to apply for government assitance. The government will determine who is or isn't entitled, to the program, it isn't an exact figure, because an uneducated guess is Thomas A. idea] it's more common sense, two many people apply, the government has more control. Almost as though they [the government-] take a larger cut of the money by denying to the people. Without proving that as a fact, people in general can become frustrated, and helpess, this adds to problem that government is causing, not solving, and claiming to have disagreements about. It will keep a good majority of people counter productive

Use Walmart while you're bettering your life with more education or even a trade school. There are government programs out there for UNEMPLOYED and UNDEREMPLOYED but it's up to you to get it done. No one is going to hand it to you and we don't OWE you a living garanteed wage just for breathing air and taking up space. Walmart and these low paying jobs should be a stopping off point,not a final destination!
<<<< bad attitude.

<quoted text>If they paid $15.00 an hour, they could expect $15.00 worth of work out of the employees BUT if you look close, the ,majority of Walmart employees walk around in a daze,occuping space,breathing good air and are not capable of that level of work! The few GOOD employees have to pull the weight of the sluggards.
bad attitude again.. also a contradiction

You have in the back of your mind that Walmart should be paying you enough to drive two new cars and have that four bedroom ,three bath,two car garage brick house in the surburbs even though you don't have an education and have nothing to offer but a warm body occupying space and breathing good air. Instead of trying to break down a very thick wall, why not take another path and arm yourself with something an employer wants rather than a whining ,sniveling attitude. You can't run the race if you don't get out of bed!

Albert Einstein failed a mathamatics exam. He went on to prove, that energy x2- in terms of negative energy = 2 electrons X mass is not equal to the components. It proves a point, that even with, the failure in Mathamatics and knowlegde, to deduce an equation, Einstein could overcome his sense of failure. Because energy is simply taken away from the space that surrounds it. and the point of learning something even though it has no results was in the knowledge. Education does not define who a person can be!

So other than the lack of education,what over the top outstanding characteristics and extraordinary abilities do YOU have to offer an employer to command a high salary?

Well you certainly know how to define a lack of education, you wouldn't know what an education was even if somebody used it in the post.

YOU are the one with issues about how companies do their hiring. Big companies follow all Federal guidelines so if you have trouble with the system,the trouble may be YOU!

100's of Walmart Stores across America from Bangor Maine to Gresham Oregon, Glendale Arizona to Brighton Bay Florida, Inglewood Ca. to Hickory N.C. have closed down because of protest after fighting with government issues of how government has allowed large corporations to distroy entire communities. A Walmart that moved 2.2 miles outside of a city, limit took away the cities tax break. Fire departments & schools closed down. Just because someone doesn't want you, in a community does that mean you're NOT going to move there? Lee Scott President C.E.O. Walmart Corporation. Yes it does!
follow this! Lee Scott is the former C.E.O. it's a bigger list.

Get your head out of the sand.Rite-Aid,CVS,Walgreens, auto parts stores,and chain restaurants are doing this all over. If the little towns and cities won't work WITH them, they work AROUND them. When the towns realize they can't live in the past, they want to annex their losses .
