Aw c'mon, there was maybe one insult in the beginning and it wasn't even directed at you personally. ;)
Your first paragraph alone suggests that youre not even willing to give WalMart a profit margin of 3.75%. Im not going to even bother fact checking your numbers. If you think theres many employers willing to provide services and jobs at a lower profit margin, youve clearly never been in business or its a good thing you got out when you did. The rest of the post is equally unworthy of attention.
I went and did some more digging and WalMart's EBITDA averages around 8% which is seems to be in line with other retailers like Target. WalMart is still not a business to be glorified, despite stories like Vigilanteman's above which seems to be out of the norm compared to what I've been reading recently. They ruthlessly come into a community and drive out businesses that were able to pay a more livable wage and then drive down wages as much as possible to the point where the government has to subsidize their workforce. Not to mention the many other circumstances of the mistreatment of their workforce, i.e. withholding of overtime pay, etc.
WalMart's best defense against the emergence of a union is to treat their employees better and more equitably. They have the means to do it they just choose not to.
Except for the Dickens remark. That was cute.
“WalMart’s best defense against the emergence of a union is to treat their employees better and more equitably. They have the means to do it they just choose not to. “
Where/what is your proof that employees are being mistreated?
Without that your entire argument just falls apart.
More lies. Boy, are you gullible or what?
