  • What took them so damn long?

    Good luck, btw
  • LULZ. I hope they are all fired. Plenty more people out there who would love their job.
  • Hmmm... I wonder if I should apply for a job at Wal Mart.
  • Silly Jesus: LULZ. I hope they are all fired. Plenty more people out there who would love their job.


    Generally speaking, that is untrue. While working at Wal-mart is not a job that requires a particularly high skill level, the people who are skilled enough are also the people who like to be able to eat and who don't like to be told to do work that is in violation of labor laws. Now, I'm sure there are people that are willing to put up with that, but I believe Wal-mart will find the quality of those workers to be lacking.

    Basically, you pay for what you get.

    Which also happens to be true when you shop at Wal-mart.
  • I will gladly boycott Wal-Mart on Black Friday.

    /just as I do on the other 364 days of the year

    The few times that I have ventured into Wal-mart I haven't been very impressed by the quality of their employees. Yelling to each other and laughing about nonsense from one register to another one 10 rows away. Standing in your way everywhere talking on cell phones. Literally retarded greeters. Parking lot full of trash and discarded shopping carts. Sort of seems like they are already scraping the bottom of the barrel. I don't think that Wal-mart could possibly find the quality of anyone lacking. So, yeah, there is no shortage of mouth-breathers to fill the positions of the current employees if they don't like it enough to stick around.
  • Done in two - both the humane and the asshole views have been spoken.
  • What's cool about having someone on your ignore list is that you can put a note in there that will be displayed each time the ignored person posts something.

    And it is filter-free.
  • I have a few friends who work for Wally World, and they were all notified on Monday that they have to be in Next Thursday no later than 5PM.

    [Although apparently you can have until 8 if you blow your department manager... at least at one store]

    This. I don't understand why employees shouldn't just be forced to live and work at the job. A little room with a hotplate, if you will. Share a shiater down the hall. I believe the president who should have been explored such policies in China.

    Employees should have absolutely no voice. In return, said employees get no pay.

    Nice friends you have there.

    That's why I'm trying to explain, though, those are the best they can currently get for the price. Those are the people not willing to put up with their shiat any longer. People willing to put up with it will either be even less qualified or, if they are equally qualified, will soon reach the same conclusions as the current employees.

    It's a voluntary exchange. They went to Wal-mart and asked for the ability to exchange their labor for the amount of money that Wal-mart was offering. They weren't recruited or forced to work there. If they don't like the terms of their voluntary contract, they are free to leave and Wal-mart should be free to replace them with someone else.

    There's an endless supply of dimwits who need some extra walking around money for cigarettes and lottery tickets. I don't think that Wal-mart is at much risk of running out of a "qualified" applicant pool.

    Exactly! Thanks for articulating much better than I attempted. They accepted the job and should have no opinion whatsoever after.

    If they want it different, they can quit and can start their own corporation selling products made in China.

    They can ask for a raise, and the company can say no. They can ask for a unicorn and the company can say no. Not sure what you're missing here.
  • So part of their plan is to pre-announce the walk out?

    /I don't think they thought this all the way through
  • AdolfOliverPanties: I will gladly boycott Wal-Mart on Black Friday.

    Indeed.

    There is a reason for that. Your other points have merit though.
  • The peasants are revolting! Welcome to Obongo's Americas!!! SECEDE NOW! IMPEACH THE FART!
  • FTFA:

    The workers are demanding the following from Walmart:

    Improve Workers' Lives
    Pay a minimum of $25,000/year and guarantee quality, affordable health coverage for all ...

    Rebuild Communities
    Sign on to a national community benefits agreement that ensures as Walmart expands into new markets, it strengthens communities, protects the environment ...

    Put Its Promises in Writing
    Agree to a global labor agreement guaranteeing the fundamental human right of freedom of association for all of its associates and instruct their suppliers to do the same...

    Elevate Global Living Standards
    Establish a legally binding global responsible contractor policy requiring contractors and subcontractors to provide living wages, worker safety protections, and respect basic human and labor rights...



    Is that all? Why exactly do they think ANY of that is going to happen because they refuse to work? Oh yeah, they're walmart employees. Clearly not the best at making important life decisions..

    It's for leverage. They think that Wal-mart is going to say "oh no, please come to work, how would we ever be able to find another group of morons with no discernible skills to replace you?" Might work, who knows. Guess we'll find out.
