That's not how it works. Especially with GOP backers. I made up a term called "Pulling a Hostess" which happens a lot among GOP backing entities. Meanwhile Apple gets named the most expensive company in history and starts bringing their manufacturing back onto American soil. Companies around here don't pull the Hostess. Employees are treated well especially at well-to-do companies. My company gave all employees including custodians, chefs, massage therapist, bartender and maintenance crew an Ipad along with a bonus check. My son's boss, Gabe Newell, took the whole company along with their families on a vacation to Hawaii. Don't see that happening at Round Table Pizza anytime soon. Most CEOs around here gets paid only $1 dollar a year and receive stocks instead. Therefore their wealth is base on how well they perform. Corporate greed ruins America.

But entities like Walmart is a little different. As a Republican I understand what the true goal is. It's about the survival of the fittest and to be the best. But some do it while leaving behind their humanity. Some people make money for the sake of making money. But like their congress counterpart, they don't care about you. They'll pretend to care about you only if it will make them more money.

Dr. Moonshine...i certainly agree about corporate greed, being one of the great problems for America....and especially as a republican, it must trouble you as to how, so many within the current GOP, have taken to promoting them over the good will of the average citizens? Unfortunatly greed will prove, near impossible to legislate againest....

What difference does it really make??? I see people putting kids that could easily walk into the cart itself and older folks putting their canes into the carts.

The same people who put their kid in the child seat have just touched the child on the bottom fitting them into the seat and then they touch item after item they don't buy and the ones they buy they place on the that moving belt we all place our food on.

The cashiers and baggers, did they wash their hands and even if they did, they have touched hunderds of products before they started touching the ones you bought.

People cough and sneeze into their hands and then continue shopping.

All you can do is keep your immune system in good shape and then hope for the best.

Just remember, the air you just breathed in was just breathed out by another person.....

It is what it is. We are all in this together and we all breathing and rebreathing the same air. Shopping in a place where the A/C is not set at a comfortable temp is something I don't care for. I cut my shopping trip short and I assue others do to. It looks good on paper but the companies are probably losing money with this practice.

I agree about the flesh juices and being veggie, it's not something I am happy about. Good healthy produce has been contaminated many times by agribusiness and their nasty greedy ways.

Tiger Lilly, we experienced just the opposite recently...a new grocery store's Grand Opening, with equally exciting pricing in their meat department....but, the beef room was actually a sectioned off room, rows of great beef items, kept at a freezing 40-45 degrees...incredible, and us here in Florida...in our cargo shorts and hawaian shirts...lol...i still haven't figured their reasoning for that...

I'm here in Fl too. North certral Fl. When it really warms up there are times the stores have not caught up and it's too hot. Then there are the times when it rains and they don't cut the A/C back and it's too cold especially in the freezer and dairy sections.

When I lived in Jax I made the mistake of shopping the morning after a low of 23 the day before. I certainly layer now if it's been cold the night before or skip a day or two and shop when it's warmed up a bit.

I'm a native Floridian so my blood is thin and what seems cold to me doesn't to a lot of transplants......

It's not Walmart, the physical store, I ever had anything against...rather it was the mindset of some of the employees that would or could cause me to have a bad shopping experience...

Sam Walton, initially, didn't become a success by hireing people who in turn gave shoppers a bad or sour shopping experience...

You don't build success like that...

But the stores so big now, that it's self sustaining...so the personal experience of induvisual shoppers, really doesn't matter anymore...

The only thing that matters to a store that big anymore is litigation...

Most who work at the store level at Walmarts are not really career orientated...to them it's a job...a means to an end...

College students or retires or housewives who want extra change...

Some need external incentives to do or to act better...

I don't...

When I'm working some place...regardless of the position or title or level, I always bring cheer and goodwill...and it's infectious...cause by doing so you brighten the moods of others around you, and they in turn go home happier, and brighten others...

I make ordinary people feel extrodinary, regardless of what I'm doing or what my pay is...and have been complimented over it many times over the years...

So it disappointments me when others can't, don't, aren't willing, to do the same...

At home, be whatever you want...mean, grouchy, spiteful ect...
But while working, representing a company, people should leave their sour moods at home...

Their low expectation of others at home...

I really do need to start giving seminars to store chains, store managers...to help them get more out of their employees...more out of life...and as a result their sales would really go up...

Expecially smaller retail outlets like Radio Shack, Office Max and Depot and Beals Outlet...

They hire people who totally lack salemanship...and who miss out on 10's of 1000's of sales per day, simply cause they don't know how to interact with custimors in a positive way...

I really do need to start giving live seminars on this subject...
Or become a consultant to retailers who's sales are low...

The secret to success, at least in retail, is all in how you interact with your custimors, how you make them feel as soon as they enter the store...

You have 3 seconds or less to impact that custimor once they walk inside that store...

And either your going to make them feel like their worth a million dollars right off...or you'll set a tone for low expectation of them...and they will feel it, and as a result won't be enthused about buying anything...

It's an art...

if i ever had my own store...

The minute, the second, that door opened and custimor walked in...they would be greeted like Royalty...as if they had just pulled up in a Limo...

Like how those Italian mob guys greated each other in the movie 'Goodfellas'...

Everyone had a grand entrance..."nothing but the best for you"...type of mentality...

Ye sure, they all had issues, but while in public or out on the town, they left it all at home...

Back in an era when even criminals had class...

I will take that era any day over todays, street, saggy pants wearing gutter types...who's influence seems to be moving mainstream...

'Class' and 'Style' is not about money...

But today, common people seem to think so...

In the olden days, even poor people on the streets, would dress up in suits...and take their family out to eat on their last dime...it was about class and dignity back then...

Self worth...

Today...I'm not sure what it's about...
Tearing others down to make them feel worse than thyself...I guess...

It's all about how you treat others...happy shoppers who feel that you think their important, buy more...

But if right off the bat, you make your shoppers feel low class and worthless...well...don't expect much from them...

I'm totally out of place in this enviornment...which totally happened by accident...
