Wal Mart's Exploitive Practices Attacked By Website
Wake Up Wal-Mart ^

Posted on 05/26/2005 6:27:37 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued

Because of Wal-Mart's inadequate wages and benefits, Wal-Mart employees are eligible for $2.5 billion in Federal assistance, which comes from your tax dollars.

"They don't sound like socialists over there to me, but they do sound like Democrats. They care about America and American jobs."

Sounds like a ZOT to me

Me, too. This article was posted from a socialist union site by a "hit and run" poster, I've seen the words "living wage" "rich get richer while the poor gets poorer" and even a call to join Bubba's "Third Way" group,

yet,

I look around, and not a kitty pic in sight.

What's the deal?

Please understand where these attacks are coming from. Her name is Mrs. HEINZ-KERRY. And .. she is funding ultra left-wing activist groups, through her Tides Foundation, who are attacking Wal-Mart.

My Mother-In-Law HATES Wal-mart; and she's a flaming leftist (I still love her dearly).
I make it a point that when I hear her rant about what she dislikes about certain things, I'll investigate them to learn that they're almost verbatim talking points from the Moveon crowd.

To quote Rush: "You just know that if the left hates something, that something must be good for America."

Yes, I have all that. So what? They are only things. I don't want to talk to any more people on this thread. I wasn't angry and was happy with my new camera and one that I bought my daughter.

I should have stayed off this thread. Somebody actually threatened that they would zot me. I stand up for the handicapped like JimRob, I stand up for murdered babies, I stand up for slaughtered baby harp seals, I stand up for reasonable measures environmentally not to turn the whole country into a parking lot, I stand up for family values, I stand up for Christian morality, and I stood up for a handicapped woman they murdered in Flordia whose name I'd better not bring to this thread.

I just don't stand up for Wal Mart and people who screw around with the American working poor who are trying to do the best they can with what they have to work with and aren't making it.

And I don't contribute as much as some of you do, but I pay what I can. So I'm not exactly a freeloader here.

So if the government decides that everyone should have a Lexus and decides to give one to everyone who doesn't have one, Walmart should immediately buy every employee a Lexus? Otherwise, the price of the Lexus comes from 'our taxes'.

What about those 'poor unfortunate Mom and Pop stores' that can't afford to buy their employees a Lexus. Should Walmart buy Mom and Pops employees a Lexus too?

How can you call yourself a conservative and not believe in a free market in which an employer and an employee negotiate a contract for salary and benefits without the government or anyone else sticking their nose in it?

"Believe"? Is the free market ideology a religion? You bet it is, a false one. The "free market" society never existed and never will.

Why? Because the market is an aspect of the economy and economy is an aspect of social life. Market is a product and a tool created by the society. If deregulated it becomes a destroyer.

To me, this is so at the core of conservatism that I don't understand how you can believe otherwise and be anything other than a liberal.

Freemarket or laissez fair ideology is ANTI-conservative. It is not coincidence that it is being called liberalism outside of USA.

All my life I just laid down and took it. A few good things came my way, but never any joy.

There is joy in standing up for the little people who cannot stand up for themselves.

Joy isn't something you pick off a tree like an apple. It is a gift.

The labor market is no different than any other market. In this case, the seller is the employee, offering his labor, experience, talent, etc. for sale. The employer is the customer buying that labor. Like any other sale, both parties are free to negotiate and accept or reject the deal. If the employer doesn't want to pay a particular price for a certain kind of labor, he doesn't have to. If the employee doesn't want to work for a particular wage, he doesn't have to.

You make serious mistake - the labor is not a mere commodity - it the activity of the living human being, his life and soul is involved.

You sin against the dignity of man by treating him like a thing. And you sin against God in whose image men are created. Freemarketeers are at heart the atheists, and when they claim to be believers they are the hypocrites as well.

Anyone who tries to reduce the effective value of the wages that I have worked so hard to improve throughout my life, is an enemy of mine. And I will fight them in any way that I can.

So you must be a ferocious enemy of free trade and outsourcing!

"Believe"? Is the free market ideology a religion? You bet it is, a false one. The "free market" society never existed and never will.

In a way, it is like a religion, if you question it, you get smacked as a heretic.

Why? Because the market is an aspect of the economy and economy is an aspect of social life. Market is a product and a tool created by the society. If deregulated it becomes a destroyer.

You need to strike a fine balance at some point. Over regulation, you get things like pure socialism or communism, no regulation you end up having the weak and the average be at the mercy of the strong "ubermenschen," of course, you can get that under socialism/communism too. We need some meeting in the middle, we need responsible regulation in some areas to protect the average person as well as the general welfare of the country and her sovereignty. Power, economic or political is bad wen you have it in too few hands.

Joy is not a gift. It is a learned skill and a rigid discipline of mind for those of us not born with the genetic makeup for it to be natural.

Rid your life of downers.

That means people who put you down and don't know how to laugh and who don't appreciate your special qualities.

Write down all the things you feel obligated to do and have a heart to heart with yourself about whether you are really obligated or just didn't have the strength to say no, or are trying to keep up some false impression of yourself with people who don't really care about you.

Write down things you genuinely enjoy doing, and do them instead of your false obligations.

Make a point several time a day to do something that brings a smile, a laugh or a sense of relief and escape.

Cultivate joy.

It will never be given to you.

Seize it.

No. True joy is gift from God. You receive it when you repent and when you are humble and when you are merciful.

I should have used the modifier "artificially," and the terms "by force." I have no problem with the victim of artificially inflated wages fleeing when they no longer can afford to conduct business. Besides which, this actually increases the effective value of my wages by decreasing the market cost of goods.

Nice try, though.

Entry level jobs should support one person with at least modest shelter, food, transportation (preferably at least a used car and insurance) and a little extra to go to a movie.

Please explain why. A job should only pay what the labor is worth.

And the people who work for the mom and pop stores that they allegedly replace probably make less wages, work less hours and have less benefits than Wal Mart employees.

I find it utterly amazing that a company that exploits its workers so visciously can get so damn many people to work there when there are so many high paying hamburger flipping jobs that are being eagerly filled by illegal aliens.

You appear to want to extend the name calling and unsolicited personal attacks that started with your reply to my original post that was not directed at you. I try to keep my posts light and not take any of this BS too seriously. Pictures help make my point and are often used to expose the ignorance and hypocrisy of the subjects of these threads.

I respect that you are approaching this from a Christian background. You didn't respond to the parable I posted about the servants and the talents their master gave them. Isn't this a complex message? How could the "Master" be proud of servants for investing? --- I accept "Blessed are the Poor". What do you think Jesus meant when he said "the poor will always be with us"?

I think He was saying that in this world, that is not his kingdom there will be illness, and handicap and poverty of spirit. "My Kingdom is not of this world". He was inviting us to focus on salvation and unity in him. Try as we might, the sinful world will have the poor.

You need to learn the lessons of history. Robspierre, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ceausescu, Hitler, Pol Pot, Castro, Kim Il Sung, all thought they could bring about equality. Marxism denies the diversity of humanity and must oppress to bring about equality. There is too much diversity created by God in us and only an all-powerful state can prevent talented people from succeeding and disadvantaged people from sinking. Frankly, you deny that humanity when you divide those who you are dialoging with you into either victims of oppression or evil oppressors.

With the best of intentions the monsters I mentioned have murdered millions because they seek the impossible equality.
I am reading Pol Pot's biography right now and his search for marxist equality at the cost of millions fanatically murdered is chilling.

If you believe in yourself and look for the next opportunity to better your self you can abandon the class envy which really only hurts you.

This nation, before the E. Mandell House/Woodrow Wilson income tax and then Commie-traitor Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal killed the free market in this country.

Laissez-faire unregulated capitalism was what made this nation the industrial and economic powerhouse it became in the latter 19th and early 20th Centuries.

Yeah, it also created vast wealth for the Morgans, Vanderbilts, Carnegies, Fricks, Westinghouses, et. al.

But since they took the initial risks, they deserved their rewards.

Are you really this OBTUSE, or are you just having a bad day?

You should have read a few lines down from my statement you commented on.

I actually think the proper and "Christian" influenced thing to do is what is being attacked here - I want to supply the "working poor" a safety net. I support supplemental support to working poor like those at Walmart and other job places.

I don't think Walmart would be such an issue if we had an expanding middle income jobs like in manufacturing. But many people feel they are declining (that is the perception anyway) and Walmart is seen by many rightly or wrongly) as the only employer in town these days. That is the real issue but people are distracted away from that to talk of Walmart wages. If Ford and GM were expanding and hiring this would not be an issue.

I have to agree with you. But it begs the question as to why. There is no simple answer to that simple question, but part of the root cause (IMO) is over regulation of everything from enviro rules/regs/laws to zoning to increased union demands and a whole host of other issues.

I do not see any quick fix in the short term to solve the problem either.

Well, "Borders, Language, Culture, Blood, and Soil" comes STRAIGHT from the pages of "Mein Kampf".

I know, because I've actually read Schicklgruber's awful book.

As for your first question about revenues raised before the unconstitutional and communist income tax,, I haven't the foggiest, but I'll check into it.

Frankly, I'm against taxation, (except to keep the potholes filled and the military second-to-none), asnd all regulation of the market and business.

Caveat emptor has worked fine for millenia before we created these unconstituional alphabet soup regulatory agencies.

People that don't do their homework before investing or going into business deserve what happens to them. There is no constitutional provision in the EIGHTEEN ENUMERATED POWERS granted the government to protect people from their own stupidity.

And please don't debase Holy Scripture by bringing it into a political/economic argument. It has no place there. Even Jesus said so.

What do you think "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's" means?
