“There’s going to be more days that we’re going to strike,” said Rozier, “and it’s not going to stop. I’m not going to stop until they respect us and give us what we want.”

Lets state the obvious, the ONLY reason the UFCW wants WamlMart to be unionized is to get millions in union dues. WalMart employs approx 1 million people in the US. Multiple that by say 7$/wk per employee. That's approx 364 MILLION in new Union dues the UFCW. That;s 364 MILLION that Walmart Employees won't have to pay for gas, food, heat, etc.

Maybe the strikers should take a quick look how "give us what we want" worked out the Hostess.

I don’t know if I would strike such a large employer during terrible economic times. You can be replaced **snap** like that! There are probably 3 or 400 people wanting your job.

I should add, I posted this when I got back from Black Friday shopping. On more than one occasion the WalMart strike came up wile waiting in lines. No sympathy at all.

You work retail, expect Black Friday, Christmas Eve, day before Thanksgiving (grocery), etc. to be busy and spend time away from home.

They are practically on strike, or at least a slow down, every day. I usually avoid that place because the cashiers at some of them take their sweet time with each customer.

From the article:

Retail employees will have back-up from Occupy activists, women’s and consumer groups, and Walmart warehouse workers.

The Nation is to the left of MSNBC. I’ll go out on a limb and say that our local SuperCenter in downstate Illinois will NOT have picketers or walk offs. Jobs are too scarce around here. I’m kind of embarrassed to say that I live in a poor part of the county, so I’m fairly certain that the Wal Mart employees are more concerned with remaining employed than in getting ink from fish wrap like the Nation..

$7???
Try more like $20-30 per week, per employees, or a BILLION DOLLARS more for SEIU-based Democrat political activity.

“The Nation”, LMBO!!!
Yeah, this phoney baloney attempt at propaganda will work, lol!

I shopped at my local Walmart just tonight and there were at least thirty new employees there, all wearing those new yellow shirts to distinguish them from the blue-shirted long-time employees. Not a striker in sight! Only about a million shoppers.

Walmart should take this as the perfect reason to never, ever unionize.

It still might. Then Obama takes over Hostess like he did with GM for the UAW workers the unions still may win.

The whole country is waiting for their snacks to be made by unions thugs. Sheesh....

Add to the first sentence of this article: "Approximately 2 weeks after 0bama's re-election and immediate sit-down with Union thugs, a plot was hatched to hasten the shut down of America's private sector (including many iconic American companies), paving the way for government takeover of all affected industries."

The words “union” and “thug” seem joined at the hip.

What amazes me is how so few people connect low wages with all the immigration. Shrink the labor pool, and employers would have to pay more. Supply and demand. Yet unions and others of their ilk’ support uncontrolled immigration.

What is so terrible about the working conditions at Walmart? I know for a fact that a vast majority of WLmarts have a waiting list of folks that want to work there. Is this jet another case of the “me” generation who want everything give to them? Is Walmart doing anything illegal in their hiring or employee compensation? I think not! Jealous comparisons between those at the bottom of a corporate pay scale to those at the top are just that: intellectual jealousy. Why are these people no complaining about celebrity earnings? Position and talent differences matter! If Walmart is so bad, leave and use all those talents the complainers have to simply get a better paying job. There is a waiting list of similarly talented and experienced folks who can say “Welcome to Walmart”!
