Skip to comments.Wal-Mart vs. the Mob
Posted on 11/23/2012 7:21:33 AM PST by sheikdetailfeather
Black Friday always brings out the worst: long lines, short tempers and random outbreaks of shoppers rage. This year, Big Labor will ratchet up the Strikesgiving tension with professional grievance-mongers and workers picketing at 1,000 Wal-Mart stores nationwide. Attention, Wal-Mart directors: Mob appeasement never works. Theyve tried repeatedly to stave off union thuggery through political partnerships and capitulation. It has failed and failed and failed.
As you may recall, the discount retail giant shocked many observers in 2009 when it announced it was embracing the principles of President Obamas federal health care mandate. The nations largest private (and non-union) employer was joined by its perennial arch-enemy, the Service Employees International Union (then-helmed by frequent White House guest and deep-pocketed heavy Andy Stern) and the far-left Center for American Progress (run by Obama confidante John Podesta and funded by billionaire George Soros).
In their joint Obamacare letter, the strange bedfellows declared: As the nations largest private employer, the nations largest union of health care workers with over 1 million members and a think tank that has been a leader on health care policy, we have worked closely in support of health care reform since 2006, when we came together to help break the stalemate that had defined the health care debate for too long.

Of course, lusting to know what the removed comments said.................I am so shallow,

Don’t forget the pepper spray!
Look at it this way, and I am a Walmart shopper, if they go union their prices will rise and sole proprietors will be able to compete against them.
Wouldn’t be caught DEAD at these places. I’ll wait ‘til Monday, thanks.
I LOVE it!!!
Good point and right on the money!
Its simple if you were scheduled to work and didn’t you are fired
Walmart has been drifting steadily leftwards since they were bullied into “going green”. I’m sure a huge percentage of their grocery business relies on food stamps. They will continue to cave to the left and the government (which means eventually I expect them to accept a union)
Unions spent tens of millions filing suits, and appealing until they found the right liberal judge. Unions won the case, patted their own backs in interviews with everyone. The next morning, Wal Mart closed all the meat sections in that state. They all lost their jobs. It was great.
Roger that to your post at 8. I will not see a mall till middle of January. I refuse to get caught in those messes. We normally go to Walmart at 7 a.m. for groceries. The earlier the better, before the Obama free stuff card holders get out of bed and come by smokes and booze.
