Frankly I think all those communist unions should bail out Detroit. They collect UNION dues under the guise of helping the family. So instead of spending billions on getting democrats elected like they have for years--they should bail out their biggest failure: Detroit.

Yo Johnny!



Oh sure they are... in fairy tale land! Union employees bargained themselves out of jobs in the auto industry and a recent example is Hostess.

I've been around in the private sector and government, and can tell you first hand, you have no clue what you are talking about.

But keep on posting Johnny. You are very funny!

<quoted text>What skill does it take to stock shelves, greet folks at the door, be a cashier, & sell merchandise? You made my point about the productivity chart. Give people an incentive to want to work hard &, you will improve productivity. That incentive is minimum wage in this case. Their minimum wage is or, the average employee hourly wage is $22.00 an he. Hell of an incentive, wouldn't you say?
The business models of Walmart and Costco are so different that comparison is impossible.

Stocking shelves at Costco means driving a forklift.

Cashiers at Costco have a far greater throughput in sales dollars per hour than Walmart cashiers.

The incentive to work hard, for most people, is to keep their job.

The majority of Costco locations are non-union.

You would not hear him back when Reagan was president, as there was no public internet like there is today, idiot.

As far as redistributing the "wealth" upwards, you need to be corrected for your lie.

The people who earn more money paid more in taxes then and they pay more than lower income earners do even today, so for you to say "redistributing the wealth upwards" is a lie.

It's actually simply "taking" less from the wealthy to encourage growth & jobs - something your Democrats can't seem to get right.

I think the year was 2007 when the USA under GW Bush took in more tax revenue than ever, hence more for your communist "redistribution", blood sucker.

Taking money in is not our problem, spending is, moron.

This will go right over your socialist, teet sucking mush brain, but here you go anyways, needy twit:

Shareholders own the business and should receive the profits.

If not, might as well sell the business to the highest bidder.

Workers are even every payday. They owe the company nothing and vice versa.

Believe it. There is a movement afoot right now for the Magic Negro to bail out every Urban Reservation in America and make off-reservation residents pay for it.

Or is it that you put too high a value on jobs that aren'tvery much skill worthy? As I said, it doesn't take much skills to work at Costco. The skill is hard labor but, the company sees their employees as an asset, not a cost burden, big difference. Take a market like the drug market. It's flooded with competition. He who provides the the best quality, for the lowest price &, is always available will always make the most money. The idea is, it's not how much you make off of every pieceof product but, how many times you can flip it. Commonsense, if iI flip more than you, I make more money. Therefore, if I give my workers a reason to want to be out there, working hard, the better my profit! Economics 101!

New record set by Obama & Democrats - we shed 240,000 full time jobs in June and now have a record number of "part time" low paying jobs.

I don't feel sorry for any of these people, if they voted for Obama.

They are getting what they deserve!

About a month back, there were Metro-Detroit area union-organizing protests. They were trying to organize all fast-food restaurant labor. They actually came out and demanded that burger-boogers get paid $15 an hour with benefits.

So here's this guy with a front tooth missing, talks like Mike Tyson and wears tattoos in his armpits with a bone through his nose screaming to da world that he's worth $15 an hour plus benefits.

It had the look and feel of a SNL or Jimmy Falon skit.

Anybody for a $20 Whopper?
