For example:

sodomizer: liam76: Somebody working 40 hours a week isn't an "unproductive" member of society.

There's no such determination. If their forty hours a week don't result in any productive contribution, they're unproductive.

You can work 40 hours a week on making model battleships out of your own feces and it won't help the economy at all.

If any of you Farkers ever get seriously pissed off at any place of business, it is a useful trick to show up Thanksgiving Day when they are closed and super glue all the locks.

They wind up locked out of their own business on the busiest day of the year, and a locksmith would be hard to find on a four--day weekend.

\\\ Not that I would ever do anything like that, you understand.

links136: Umm, what about Japanese and German unions? German unions for example, pay twice the amount as their American counterparts when you include benefit packages. Or did Detroit fail because they were shiatty run companies, like the rest of the country?


We'll find out in 30 years, when German and Japanese worker unions get to the same point on their pensions-supported-by-active-workers ratio that the UAW hit in 2008.

The people that are White Knighting for poor, oppressed Wal-Mart amuse me.

Any company can piss off its workers to the point they organize, and any company can break that organization.

In both cases it is usually more efficient (and profitable) to keep your employees happy.

Felgraf: sodomizer: Unions destroy everything they touch.

They create a threat of economic terrorism to the companies who employ these workers, and pay them well given their abilities.

In the end, what happens is that costs go up to the consumer, competitiveness goes down, organized crime and corruption come in, and while the union workers are overpaid, they're no longer in a growth industry.

As a result only incompetents remain.

Look at what unions did to American automakers.

Perhaps the same could be said of all organized groups!

Your politics are as empty as your soul. Mankind poor ill-needs a CEO such as you!

BAH! What is a man, anyways?! A miserable pile of poorness! But enough talk, HAVE AT YOU!

/Alright, it needs work.

Weaver95: Walker: Easily replaceable.

you reach a point of diminishing returns though. if you end up firing and replacing your entire staff once every six months then you've officially spent more money hiring, training and replacing workers than you did if you had just given them what they wanted in the first place. do you want to make money or do you want to crush union activity? if the goal is making money, then in the long term it pays off to treat your workers better. if you want to crush unions then get used to a complete turnover every 6 months, or until you completely exhaust the local labor pool and start shutting down stores.


They aren't going anywhere. Walmart workers have no guts, goals, or hope. Why do you think they work at Walmart? People who work there have given up on life and are soul less drones. This applies to most retail workers actually. I should know, I was one for 14 years. It's only by pure chance I was able to get out. You really think they are gonna quit right at the start of the Christmas season? Sorry kids, Christmas is cancelled. Mommy wanted to teach the big ol Walmart a lesson. That'll learn them. Now pass the dirt soup, mommy's hungry.

David Tovar, Walmart VP of communications, countered the protesters' claims in an interview with The Huffington Post. "These strikes are an attempt by the unions to further their own political and financial agendas,"

Well there you have it.

Walmart would never do anything to further their own political and financial agendas, only those petty employees would do such a thing.
