"Walmart employees began walking off the job this week in advance of Black Friday, when three-union
backed groups expect thousands of protests nationwide.
In October, a strike at a Walmart in Los Angeles spread to stores in 12 other cities, with local and national leaders holding protests at more than 200 stores for better pay, fairer schedules and more affordable health care. Since that time, workers have since walked off the job in Dallas and Richmond, Calif., and other upcoming strikes and protests are expected at stores in Chicago, Miami, Milwaukee and Washington, D.C."
I like Costco. Maybe a lesson can be learned here. Looking at long charts of the 2 companies, WMT has outperformed long term, Costco has done slightly better on a 2 year comparison.
I'm just saying that Unions were initially set up to protect children from child labor abuse, excessive work hours under dangerous conditions etc. These were all legitimate reasons. I'm not saying it's all bad, I just think too many workers now are complaining about too many things. Wal Mart will hire employees that nobody else will hire. At least these people have a job. There is no easy solution. Never is an easy one it seems.
