    Ima, you REALLY should do some checking up on the Walton family, and how they screw over their employees, contractors, and suppliers. A friend started to do a contract with them for computer maintenance. Their final terms would basically have had HIM paying for the privilege of working for THEM!


    There is one product I buy at Walmart when I get to the “big city”, for one reason, nobody else has it. I’d much rather pay a little more to my local folks for even bigger items, than give more profit to the Walton family for screwing over their “people”.(in China!)

    My uncle was a truck driver for Walmart and loved Mr. Sam, who made him rich with stock options.

    That must have been a long time ago. I remember when WalMart was a small family business. Mr. Sam was a gem of a guy. His sons, not so much. Bet they’ve cut out that " stock options for truck drivers" part.

    Gladly. Trouble is, many small towns have made the Devils deal that provides WalMart with a local monopoly. Chases out the smaller businesses and leaves the behemoth that pays wages so low that the employees are dependent on public healthcare.

    Should a person working at WalMart make more than minimum wage? I don’t think so. It’s a beginner’s job and the person should be planning their future to move on from WalMart. I would make minimum wage too if I had chosen not to learn something to make myself valuable to a company.

    Walmart is the right wing template to enslave all workers.

    In my experience, associates don’t have to be paid as much because they are considered to be self employed.

    Really? I’ve had American friends work as “associates” while they attended uni but I thought it was just a “make you feel more important while we pay you the same” type of title…
    There’s actually a rights etc implication . Wow.

    ‘I would make minimum wage too if I had chosen not to learn something’
    Wow, quite the heartless judgement there.
    "chosen’…yeah, all about choice, isn’t it. :-|
    I’m guessing you support the Republican party in the US? (see, that’s my judgement call)

    I agree with you but walmart shipped the other jobs to china.

    @kamwick So true… it has been noted in the past, I do not know if it is still the case, but every state that had Walmart had court cases against them for unfair business practices. Walmart didn’t care, they could keep delaying the cases until all the competition was gone, pay the fines which might cost a lot in the short run but they made it all back and much more in the long run.What I really hate is the way the lie about lowering prices. After they ran all of the major competitors away I was forced to use Walmart for many items I had bought elsewhere. I have to watch my budget so I know what I paid for things. Once, when an Item I had bought for years at a particular price was suddenly 15 cents more and marked with a smiley face saying it was reduced by a nickel I asked the clerk what gives? Her reply… well somewhere, in some store it was being sold at the higher price, when they lowered it at that one store they could claim it as a reduction in all their stores even if it was the opposite in other stores. Also I remember buying packs of burnable cds for $15.00 for a while then suddenly the price was raised to $21.00 (no Smiley Faces there) then 2 weeks later the price was reduced to $18.00 (with Smiley Face) pointing out how they had reduced the price from $21.00. Yeah they are just a wonderful company.
