Assuming this is not the pure baboonery it sounds like. it makes a good point: wal-mart can stand to loose a number of stores and yet experience absolutely no sig. monetary impact. What an awesome company!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You say you were in a wal-mart store with fewer customers than associates, yet the company is making higher earnings than they any publicly traded company on the planet (with the exception of Exxon this past quarter secondary to crude prices)
Then again, Wal-Mart is big enough that when it lost 75 stores in a single day to a hurricane last year there was no noticeable effect!!!!!!
OH btw how long do you think the jobs of associates would last in a given store if they voted in union??? talk about voting your job out of existence!!!!!!!!!
