    Union Fail: Walmart Reports Record Sales

    by Ben Shapiro23 Nov 2012, 10:10 AM PDT128post a comment

    Despite union efforts to target retailers like Walmart, businesses are reporting record Black Friday traffic – the biggest sign yet that the unions are out of touch with the American people. Starting at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, Walmart put its products on Black Friday sale, sparking a run to the stores and earning the stores record sales.

    They’ve already sold nearly 2 million towels, 1.3 million televisions, and 250,000 bicycles. According to Walmart Chief Executive Bill Simon, over 1.3 million Walmart staffers are on duty. There have been picket lines around the country, but the movement has been far less effective than expected.

      In an email to HuffPost, Dawn Bess in Missouri writes:
      "No one is striking here. Missouri is an 'at will' employment state and the employers pay the unemployment insurance. It no longer is deducted from our paychecks like it was 5 or 10 years ago, so if you are fired in Missouri for ANY reason that your employer can conjure up, the state denies us unemployment compensation.

        By the way, pole, this phenomenon with the attendant chaos and destructiveness including sometimes murderous rage is what happens when you have many in a society who can barely afford to house and feed their families.

        And let me ask, pole, how would you, Rush, Hannity, Coulter, etc., have reacted if even half of this stuff had happened at any Occupy Wall Street site anywhere around the country a year ago? Might demonization and allegations of totally outrageous unAmerican and virtually treasonous activity deserving of Abu Ghraib or Guantanamo type imprisonment have captured the moment for you and your like?

        Sentiment: Strong Buy
