    A Home Depot in Dearborn MI was the latest victim succumbing to the demands of an organization that shouldn’t be in existence in the United States of America. An American company the home depot gets over powered by the Muslim Brotherhood terror linked organization CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) has cast. The employees will be subjected to cultural awareness training. The CAIR states this will help them accommodate the religious sensitivities of the Muslim employees and customers. Corporate and Managers gain a better understanding of Muslims and are taught Islam. Does Home Depot believe they need to “better serve...

    The Home Depot in Dearborn MI, was the latest victim succumbing to the demands of an organization that shouldn’t even be in existence in the United States. Once again, the questions that begs to be answered is how is this training even occurring? Since when are “religious” entities allowed to give training to corporations, albeit private, when no other religion could do the same? The following is CAIR’s announcement of its “cultural” training:

    Demand is going through the roof for gymnastics-strength shower rods -- all thanks to "Love & Hip Hop" star Mimi Faust's sex tape acrobatics -- and Home Depot, Lowe's, Target, and Walmart are struggling to keep up. We called employees at each of the major retailers (from Georgia to Cali) and we're getting the same story -- ever since the trailer for Mimi's sex tape came out, people have been racing to purchase their own super-strong shower rods to recreate the Mimi experience. And supplies are running out -- a customer at one Home Depot in Georgia tells us, they...

    Amazon.com Inc. and The Home Depot Inc., both giants in their respective retail fields, are heralding the arrival of spring with major hiring surges. E-commerce king Amazon said it will take on more than 2,500 full-time workers in several states as the company’s stable of fulfillment centers expands.

    Trader Joe's, the popular privately held supermarket, previously applauded for offering coverage to their part-time employees, is reversing course and, instead of coverage, employees will receive a $500 check. Trader Joe's argues that the employees will likely be able to find a similar plan at a similar cost on the Affordable Care Act's freshly minted state-based insurance exchanges. Of course, the cost is similar if you add in the government subsidies that those low-income employees are likely eligible to receive. As Trader Joe's was followed by Home Depot, this could be the start of a potentially unintended consequence of Obamacare:...

    Home Depot is transferring roughly 20,000 part-time workers to the taxpayer-funded Obamacare exchanges, marking another step in the nationwide rollout of President Barack Obama’s most prized accomplishment. “Unfortunately, the ACA [Affordable Care Act] precludes us from offering the limited liability medical plan we’ve been offering the part-time associates,” said Stephen Holmes, the company’s director of corporate communications. The 20,000 employees will have more options on government-run exchanges, he told The Daily Caller. Home Depot Inc. employs roughly 340,000 people, but declined to give a precise number of people who will be impacted by the change. The government-run exchange requires people...

    Forecasters don't expect Hurricane Irene to make landfall until Saturday. But for nearly a week now, big-box retailers like Walmart and Home Depot have been getting ready. They've deployed hundreds of trucks carrying everything from plywood to Pop-Tarts to stores in the storm's path. It's all possible because these retailers have turned hurricane preparation into a science — one that government emergency agencies have begun to embrace.At Home Depot's Hurricane Command Center in Atlanta, for example, about 100 associates have been trying to anticipate how Irene will affect its East Coast stores from the Carolinas to New York.At times like...

    Some big retailers are promoting compact fluorescent light bulbs as a way to save energy. But improper disposal of the bulbs creates a hazard, because they contain small amounts of mercury. Recycling them is about to get easier. Home Depot, the nation’s second-largest retailer, will announce on Tuesday that it will take back old compact fluorescents in all 1,973 of its stores in the United States, creating the nation’s most widespread recycling program for the bulbs. “We kept hearing from the community that there was a little bit of concern about mercury in the C.F.L.’s,” said Ron Jarvis, Home Depot’s...

    The rising value of the Chinese yuan, higher pay for Chinese workers and $136-a-barrel oil may mean more factory jobs in North America, the Home Depot chief executive Frank Blake said. The world's largest home-improvement chain is looking for factories in the United States, Mexico and Canada to build some products that are getting too expensive to make in China, Blake said in an interview in New York. The Atlanta-based Home Depot imports about 13 percent of the goods it sells, and most of that is made in China, said a spokeswoman. A shift in production from China back to...
