Unions do not care about raising wages for workers. If that was the true reason they are targeting Walmart they should try levying the government to raise minimum wage. Walmart pays above minimum wage. The only thing the union cares about is money. Walmart has the largest workforce and the unions would hit the jackpot with union dues. If you notice they don't care how much the person at the local gas station makes. It would not be financially beneficial for them to worry about small companies. There is no longer a need for unions.

Something has to be done. Six members of the Walton family have as much money as 193 million Americans. And all they want is more....it's sickening.

I will not only boycott walmart, I will demand it of each of my family members. I rarely make demands. But this is one of them. I am the patriarch, if you will.

And as a man of God, I'm going another step further. I am leading a prayer that the Wakton family and its Executives be punished severely for their deeds. I am asking that God show His power by crushing the Walton's by delivering a shock that will cause them to repent or love out a life in wealthy misery.

The most disgusting part of America is the tea party. And yes, you're right. They should be after the givt to raise the minimum wage. Infortunately, I live in Tennessee where whe I have no presentation. My representative is so ignorant, that I'm surprised that he can find his way home after a bout of heavy drinking and worse.

They want to LOWER the minimum wage, not raise it.

I hate the Walton family, I hate the tea party, I hate republicans, I hate mitt romeny, I hate Paul Ryan, I hate Rupert Murdock, I hate Ron Ramsey, I hate Phil roes, I hate Sarah Palin, I hate Michelle Bachmann, I hate Mitch macconnell, I hate ush Limbaugh, I hate Neal Boortz, I hate the right.

I am the property of the Living Christ. I am stuck in a dimension of evil posing as the moral. I hate them and I always will. Aen

So this morning walmart is facing ANOTHER even large bribery sandal - this time in India. I thought walmart said the Mexco bribery issues were just some individuals actingon their own? There story this time wll be that they discovered it themselves which is somehow supposed to make it less bad. Do you see a pattern here? What wil they say when the really big bribery scandal that they still haven't talked about comes to light in their adopted homeland overseas?

If you cannot see walmart completely lacks any shred of ethics you are simply stupid. When is some governing authority going to step in?

Maybe a union isn't the answer but SOMETHING has to be done to force this company to play by the rules or they simply will not - it has been shown over and over.

Walmart is a bad company run by unethical people.

when they applied for a job at walmart they were told what the pay was ahead of time. if they didn't like the pay they shouldn't have accepted the job. there are tens of thousands of applications on file at this chain.
Why don't the crybabies just quit instead of stamping their feet whining and find their dream higher paying job and let other people that need the job get it.
No one is forced to stay in a job they are dissatisfied with.

This OP is about U..S walmart workers, not outsourced chinese factory jobs. Your decline into typical liberal namecalling shows your IQ.
A large percentage of walmart customers are people on entitlement funds, that's just a fact you can't wrap your mind around.

during obamas 4 years the food stamp rolls jumped over 10 million people. Unions were the driving force behind most mfg. moving to cheaper countries. Under obamas watch GM has moved factories to china after the gubbmint decided to own part of it, GE moved medical imaging mfg. to china after obama made the CEO (rich slime) his administrations economics advisor at the white hut. Your 'rich' rant lacks credence in face of the facts. Food stamp recepients don't buy GM or GE medical devices with their ebt cards.

I suppose you believe "taxing the rich" is the answer, eh? Or maybe it's raising the minimum wage?

Blaming Reagan for your problems shows you've chosen to believe leftist propaganda.

Not at all. If we want good jobs back in the USA we need to force the GREEDY companies and rich to bring them back from COMMIE china. If we offeer companiesa dn rich people a 50% tax reduction to creATe jobs here and offer that if they outsource they will pay 75% more in taxes I am sure 100% that the jobs will come back to the USA. WHY DONT YOU GOP SLIME WANT THE JOBS BACK??
