    Wally World

    Regardless your view of unions, I'm trying to see the logic and strategy in the timing of this latest challenge. Let's see, high unemployment with thousands of people unable to find work, at a time of recession, = strike threat. Now granted, I've never worked at Wally World, but I'm thinking it's not go to be too difficult for Wally World to replace a lot of people right now. Of coarse, I don't know what the gripes are either.

    I think it has something to do with paying a living wage. You might want to watch "the High Cost of Low Prices". it lays it out a bit better than I can especially since a living wage is different throughout the country.

    I saw my Super Wally World from a distance today. Massive parking lot. There were cars parked in the surrounding fields. So much for boycott.

    Personally, I don't care if you shop there or support unions or not. You have to remember these facts though; 80% of their associates are on food stamps. Those same associates receive 2.66 Billion Dollars in government assistance each year, or $420,000.00 per store per year. No matter if you never walk in to a store in your life, you still pay for their policies.

    As a side note, the 6 Walton heirs possess as much wealth as 42% of the rest of the American working class.

    Even H. Ford knew, you have to pay your employees enough, so they can afford to buy your product.

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.

    I was thinking the same thing, figure there must be a bigger picture somewhere. Sure, they should be paid more, but is now really the time to challenge the issue?

    First post on the forum. Never would have thought that it would be about this but plain and simple, last time I checked there are no chains on any of the people working at Walmart that forces them to work there. Also heard that most of the strikers were not even employees of Walmart.

    Actually there are chains,though not physically but figuratively.Jobs are hard to come by,sure theyre out there but what are your chances of being hired if 500 people are after the same job.Your chains amount to being able to eat,paying your rent or mortgage,taking care of your family if you have one,car payment.Bills equal chains.Whats wrong with trying to improve an existing job instead of going through the hell of looking for a new one.

    Bigscoop,actually you have agreed with me in the past,if you dont remember,its ok,i do.Just because certain opinions differ doesnt mean grudges are held.And i would stand in line of battle to defend that right to state those opinions.Thats what this country is suppose to be all about.

    I'm fully aware of it Red and I hold no grudges at all. In fact, I would even go fishing or bow hunting with you given the opportunity. We just agree to disagree a lot.

    Now, men, I have to part ways with both of you here.

    Today, everyone thinks they are owed something. "It isn't in my job description" is said way too often by persons who are otherwise idle.

    This is not a statement about either of you, but it comes from my personal experience with today's job candidates, it's what I tell them during the interview:

    When you go to work for me, I tell you up front what you will make. It is up to you to say yes or no THEN, not gripe and moan later about being underpaid. If it isn't enough, ask for more NOW or go elsewhere. I know what the job is worth, I know what I make, I know what I can afford to pay you . . . and I know that you won't work for anyone nicer than me IF you do your job. If you want to loaf or complain, I'll become the sorriest SOB you ever met --- I'll simply become whatever you want me to be, and since "out of the heart's abundance the mouth speaks", your whining tells me what you want me to be.

    When business is slack, I may ask you to do something that isn't in your job description instead of sending you home. If you complain about it, then you don't want to work for me, and again you'll get your wish.

    When I was the worker, if the boss asked me to go to his mother's house and cut the grass, I did it. He was paying for my time. I had agreed to what my time was worth, not what I would do . . . that would have been a different discussion and I would have been another of the faceless unemployed. So long as I was getting paid, I did the job provided it wasn't illegal or immoral.

    You get out of your job what you put into it. If your work is slack, then I assume that moving you any farther up the ladder would be beyond your abilities. Thus, no more raises . . . until you can master what you are assigned to do. Any of you ever see a Wal-Mart employee who is a go getter? It doesn't take long for them to move up the ladder towards management. Did you ever see a Wal-Mart employee who just drags around and acts like doing their job is too much trouble? You usually don't see them at Wal-Mart very long. It is a long line of go nowhere jobs until they either learn to apply themselves or cannot get hired because of their bad attitude.

    Now, do you really want to work here?

Every good gift and every perfect present is from above, coming down from the Father of the celestial lights, who does not vary or change like the shifting shadows." --- James 1:13, 16, 17

    The Truth
    It all depends on the circumstances surrounding the gripes.I have always done more than i have been required to do,thats just me.Cutting pay is illegal or at least it use to be.I havent kept up on the labor laws.When i union organized i didnt do it for pay,i didnt make a thing off of it.I did it for safety reasons.The company i worked for was a sweat shop,if you died on the job or were seriously injured they didnt care.They didnt hesitate to ask you to do something that was completely against OSHA regulations.When a supervisor who was sneaking around overheard me talking to other employees about getting the teamsters in there,i was in a convenient accident.4000 pounds was pushed over on me by a fork truck.I walked away from it with 18 stitches in my head.I was hurting ,i was out for a month only getting 1 week workmans comp.I went back there and i them hard.
