d23: Carn: abhorrent1: FFS. I'm so sick of hearing people biatch about walmart. Get a different farking job then. It's not like retail jobs a rare and hard to get.

Yeah go earn $7.25 at some other hellhole like Sam's Club or Target or Best Buy.  That'll solve all your problems.

I would patronize costco if there was one near me.

Secondly, Sam's Club is basically the same store, so that doesn't make much sense.


I've been thinking about getting a Costco membership and shopping there on occasion only for the fact that they treat their people well.  I wish Wegman's were closer to me too.

Well I use Mac/Linux...: Maybe learn a farking skill and don't work a job that a 16 year old could do.



This sentiment is sadly too common. There are many flaws in it.

First of all, a functional economy needs ALL kinds of labor - both skilled and unskilled - and there aren't enough 16 year olds to do all those jobs. If everyone one could and did take your advice our society would grind to a halt. Waiters are needed. Shelf-stockers are needed. Cash register people are needed. Someone to sweep a sidewalk is needed... etc. Your patronizing attitude towards people who do those jobs doesn't change that simple reality.

Second, these are people doing an honest day's work. Anyone who is doing an honest days work should be compensated enough to survive. Anything less is something akin to indentured servitude.

Third, your condescension towards that entire class of people belies a moral failing, or at least a conceptual failing on your own part. No doubt many of those people work harder than you or I do. Not only that, but "unskilled labor" is a label we use, but it doesn't actually mean those people have no skills.

Fourth, the compound effects of the steady wage destruction since the late 70's mean that we now have a whole lot of "underemployment" - which means that many of those skilled workers you are so mindlessly exhorting folks to be are working in those unskilled capacities now.

I could probably go on, but I need to get back to work myself. As you can see though, your sentiment is critically flawed in many ways.

BunkoSquad: They're actually asking employees to donate food to each other (more complete story). Wal-Mart surely doesn't want the customers to get the idea that the staff is underpaid and desperate.


Where are the employees expected to purchase their intended donations from, hmm?

I'll give you one guess.

Not only is this a disgrace at the economic level but implying that all Walmart employees prefer it in the can is a stereotype outrage.

Yeah I know but what makes you think they're just going to hand off that hard earned money to liburuls so they can buy flat screen TVs at Walmart. Along with a jar of cheez balls. That should last a couple days.

If you have a positive net worth you have more wealth than the bottom 25% of Americans. That doesn't make you rich. Of course, the Waltons are rich, but you don't need dramatic statements to prove that.

I don't like Wal-Mart.  I haven't set foot in one in almost 3 years because I don't want to give them a penny of my own money.

But this situation seems like people trying to do something nice for their co-workers.  I'm guessing there are probably a couple of people that have some extra tough situations going on that everyone wants to help out and rather than embarrass them by taking up a collection just for them, they're making it look like they're helping out a bunch of families.  Instead of hitting everyone up individually "Hey, Karen's really broke while she's going through cancer treatments, wanna chip in for her Thanksgiving.?" or "Hey, Bob's wife got laid off and he's got six kids and he's really worried." and Karen and Bob knowing that everyone's putting on a charity drive just for them, it's a drive for "all the needy families".  And I can see wanting to make it easy for everyone to help Karen and Bob out without anyone having to come up to either of them directly and give them a handout. The bins make it a lot more anonymous.  And they also make it so that even management can be involved in donating without it looking like they're playing favorites with an employee or two or the employees who receive the generosity feeling like they owe the boss something extra for it or will be perceived as owing them something extra for it.  Plus, it makes it so that anyone having a tough time making ends meet themselves won't have to be approached to kick in to help out and feel bad about having to not participate.  The bin is there.  If you want to help and have the means to share, go for it.  If you don't, you aren't pressured to do anything.

Sometimes there are things that are just so wrong that we can see clearly without any bullshiat who is at fault. Partisan politics can be put aside for a few things.

This is one of those times.

This is complete horse shiat. What Walmart is doing is completely disgraceful.

Combined works too. The number is actually higher then, because the bottom 20% or so have negative wealth. It takes longer to get back into the black when you add up all those negatives.

Pocket Ninja: This article does not really make it clear (the linked one is much better, and does), but the food drive is not actually soliciting customers. It's for employees to donate food to other employees. Which is a little less bad, but still won't play very well.


That's worse... much worse actually.   This is asking the poor to pay for the broke.  Classy Walmart, classy.   Maybe they should spend some of their massive political donations to help their suffering employees eh?

The article notes that they have been doing this for several years so I would say the hardship is systematic rather than occasional.

heh.  no fair stealing Shizzlewizzle, even if it is to point out how farked up walmart is right now.

if you really want to divide by zero here, look at the ebt thing...  walmart is cutting hours to compensate for eating the cost of the OOOHHH!! FREE FOOD!  which means that even MORE of their employees are now going to qualify for ebt.  and THEN they're basically saying "use your ebt to buy food for each other"

Right up there with "Can't afford health insurance? DON'T GET SICK!!"
 
2013-11-18 03:14:37 PM  

Heffaloo: Voiceofreason01: Fark It: A company spokesman defended the food drive, telling the Plain Dealer that it is evidence that employees care about each other.
"This store has been doing this for several years and is for associates that have faced an extreme hardship recently," spokesman Kory Lundberg told us.
Lundberg says an example of this would be a recent layoff in the family or some other financial hardship.

Like working for WalMart?

getting their hours cut down to part time so that Walmart doesn't have to offer them health insurance, maybe?

Most of their employees have been held to part-time hours for decades.  Any time you see them brag about the average wage of a full-time Walmart employee, know that they are purposely removing 80-90% of their workforce from that average by not including the part-time workers.


Its been a few years since I worked hourly (2009), but my p/t hours were capped because if an employee worked 32 (iirc) hours a week, three weeks in a row they were *federally* defined as a f/t employee.

It sucked, because all I wanted was hours and didn't want or need any of the f/t benefits.

So it's not just the companies capping hours to be greedy. There are legal reasons why they restrict hours.

These people are having financial hardship BECAUSE they are working at Walmart.

This isn't about layoffs. This isn't about having to take time off unpaid for a sick kid.

This is about employees who can barely afford to live.

Walmart is a cancer.

/If Walmart truly cared about their employees going hungry then they would, you know, maybe let them have some of the food that is stocked on the shelves?

mongbiohazard: This is a part of a problem which affects us all. It's well past the time where we need to have a serious national discussion about this subsidy we give to companies like this. Companies which we know pay their workers so little that they need to be on public assistance to feed their families. It means all of us paying taxes are subsidizing the big piles of wealth that the executives of these companies are amassing. You and I are effectively paying the CEO of Walmart even though we may never buy a single product from them in our lives, and their rank and file employees suffer at the same time.

So it isn't enough to just not shop there. Every taxpayer is supporting this usurious system.

The destruction of the wages and wealth of the majority of Americans over the last few decades - so a favored very few can amass grotesque amounts of wealth at everyone else's expense - is a huge problem and I don't mean morally. It's a problem because it weakens our economy in general. It slows economic recovery, and hurts the job market. It's a serious threat to the country.

Our economy runs on consumption. The poorer the consumers are, the slower and weaker our economy is going to get. Our economic strength in the past relied in no small part on the vast wealth that the American system had created and distributed among the majority of the citizens, allowing for a vibrant and healthy economy. Now that wages and wealth are on the decline for the lower and middle classes not only do we have less capital to trade back and forth supporting each other, but the less capital we have means it's harder for the next small business to be created by that enterprising fellow in his garage... which impacts the creative destruction a system like ours needs.

Poor people vote

Problem is is that they are scared into voting the two parties that don't give a shiat about them.

"Voting for Jill Stein is a vote for Mitt Romney and a war with Iran. Its OK that Obama isn't that Liberal, he would fark us less than Mitt Romney"

Jill Stein is an actual Liberal. Because people are too scared that Mitt Romney might have won they completely ignored her.

Those two parties use fear to keep the status-quo.

When people realize this then maybe we can have some real farking change.

This is the big fear.  The 1% has become SO greedy and SO obnoxious about it that violent upheaval is almost inevitable, but because they all live in their own little fantasy worlds they figure that it's okay as long as its not them.  Meanwhile, what's left of the middle class is looking at everybody going, WTF happenned?

Why not get some of your fellow Walmart employees to assemble a systematic way to shoplift from their store.  Maybe you bring 12 items to the check out counter but your buddy only effectively scans 9 items. Or you get the loss prevention lead to reboot security cameras thereby shutting them down for a 5 minute "predetermined" time and suddenly the back door is a flurry of activity.  You see, this way Walmart helps its own, but doesn't actually know it and subsequently doesn't try to exploit their  generosity.

Huh? Huh? Genius right?

I don't know how long ago that was...but I remember reading somewhere that something like nearly a quarter of all of Walmart employees quality for welfare.  I know there are several mitigating factors that come in to play with that.  But when the majority of the Walmart break rooms have postings from their HR departments on how to apply for welfare...there's just something so wrong with that.
 
2013-11-18 03:27:31 PM  
Those bastards! They shouldn't try to collect any food for their needy employees, the nerve. They should just let them starve.

They should stop paying people so little, too. Just lay them all off already so they can take all their marketable skills and extensive work experience to the $20 an hour job that Wal Mart has been stopping them from taking.
 
2013-11-18 03:30:38 PM  
The outrage is misplaced. The food drive is for employees who have undergone hardship, like if a family member has been laid off. The snerky answer of "like working at Walmart" has a disturbing grain of truth but the actual story here is ok IMHO.

Walmart is capitalism. If people don't like the basic premise of Walmart, they should shop elsewhere. Of course, voting with your $$$ can only be so effective in a country with such a disturbingly whacked distribution of weath but again, capitalism. If you don't like it, move to a more social country. Like, for example, basically every first world nation other than the USA.

The USA is unique in the first world in many ways. Almost all of them negative (IMHO).

whidbey: orclover: If you are expecting a non terrestrial super powered invisible being to right the scales of such injustices, then you are part of the problem.

This will only get worse.  A lot worse.

Actually a virus might solve the whole thing.


I would be completley in favor of a superbug wiping out or nearly wiping out our species.  But rich people would have a near 100% survival rate compared to the rest of our planet.

A revolution will never happen either.  Rich people will just pay the army to wipe out all the poor people.   There is no end and no hope, were farked.  Well cept the rich people, they are just dandy.  I cant believe I brought children into this farking shiatty world.  Our species needs a mercy killing.

Anyone who makes snide remarks about Wal-Mart also tends to:

1. Own a TV but haven't turned it on in years
2. Drink microbrewery beer
3. Watch Japanese children's cartoons on a Mac
4. Appreciate the warmth of vinyl phonograph records
5. Read books at Starbucks
6. Claim to prefer girls with small breasts
7. Ride a bike wearing spandex stretch trousers
8. Walk past a smoker and force pretentious coughing noises
9. Take comfort in believing size doesn't matter
10. Feign disgust at the idea of eating a Big Mac
