moefuggenbrew: Nobody unemployed is going to want part time work at walmart...it's less money than unemployment, and you have to do work, at walmart.
grinding_journalist: "I'm striking because I was retaliated against for speaking out," she said. Valesquez, a single mother of five children, said that with eight hours worth of pay, she "can't even pay one bill. It's very, very hard."Your problem, I found it.
mod3072: I did a very brief stint at a Wal Mart during college. Part of my orientation and training was to watch a required 20 minute anti-union movie. It was 20 solid minutes of "Unions are bad! No, seriously, they're the worst. Did we mention how much unions suck? Don't ever join a union or terrorists will rape your baby in the face. Every time someone joins a union, God kills a kitten. Have we mentioned that unions are bad? Did you know that Satan himself came up from the fiery depths of hell to start the first labor union? Oh, and if you even think about saying the word union within 1000 miles of any Wal Mart store, you will be fired." I didn't have any strong opinions about unions one way or the other at the time, but I found the whole thing to be a bit creepy and Orwellian.
CujoQuarrel: But wouldn't not showing up for work still be grounds for firing?
Snarky Acronym: There's a Walmart market (grocery store) near me I used to patronize, but I quit going. The prices were good but it was depressing going there, the employees were obviously not happy and the clientele always made me thank God when I walked out of there and hadn't been shot while shopping. I even sold my Wal-mart stock just to wash my hands of the whole mess.
