That's BS put forth by retail unions. Fact is ... there are tow motor operators at WalMart distribution centers around the country that are millionaires ... thanks to WalMart stock option plans.
More so- IF these EMPLOYEES didn't have ANY job at WALMART, then WHAT would be the total WELFARE $$$$$$ we would be dumping into their households to keep them raising another generation of the same??????
The unions are just pissed that they cannot break into Wal Mart and drive them up in prices and out of business.
Someone needs to remind the UNIONS of what happened in the 30's to Kohler plumbing products. I recall that old man Kohler closed the factory for almost 3 years because the "union organizers" were trying to muscle into the place. Kohler was already paying more than ANY OTHER foundry in the region.
When the plant opened up again after all those months, everyone was happy to have a job. The unions have to realize just who is the dinosaur here. Besides, just how many products are sold in Wal-Mart that are produced all or in part by union shops? If Wal-Mart shuts down, how many union jobs will be lost and gone forever?
There are still people in South Bend Indiana who are waiting for Studebaker to re-open.........
