Don't forget the trauma of a friend of yours sitting next to who was killed. There was blood everywhere. Shep doesn't care about anybody else only Walmart. She is truly disgusting negative slime ball. I'm sorry Yahoo but it is the truth.
A perfect example of just how little WMT cares about anyone, it is just money. There certainly is a good reason why WMT is one of America's most disliked corproations. America needs to stand up and ask WMT to leave their communities unless they stop using welfare to pay its workers and start respecting America and Americans.
Yes and WMT is still using billions of tax funded welfare to subsidize their labor costs.
Well companies like WMT that clearly use welfare to lower their labor costs bring no benefit to taxpayers, employees or communities. Yet you are the first to defend them. I glad you agree that collective bargaining is a right and a right Walmart clearly refuses to allow it work force. Harassment, illegal firings are their tolls to deny workers their rights. However I am gald to see Americans are now informed about just how much WMT abuses the taxpayers and their welfare system for their profit. After that is what this board is about and your one instance doesn't in Philadelphia make up for the national scam that WMT is putting over on America.
I see you prefer to look at the world as a glass half full. Look at my example. I own two homes, have health care paid vacation, and I able to pay for my sons college. Your one sided view of America is your handicap. You are sounding as selfish as shep, not everyone can be a CEO. Someone has to do the work and they are an integral part of business, not just a cost. America was formed for Americans, trickle down failed and American workers need to band together to have strength in numbers. A great case in point is how poorly WMT workers are paid and treated and how WMT actually uses welfare to subsidize their labor costs.
So instead are you proud of WMT trying to steal their own workers wages, forcing workers to work off the clock, harassing their workers, illegally firings and discrimination.
Yes I am proud of unions and the quality of life they have help me to attain.
Having a job and being asked to feed your fellow workers because they can't afford food, that's the nonunion way at WMT.
Unions decline because of paid corporate lobbyists from companies like WMT who craft laws restricting workers rights . They would rather use welfare to pay their workers and WMT does.
Then there are companies like WMT that use our tax funded welfare as part of their own workers pay.
Based on previous research with other colleagues, we’ve found that states/countries with higher union membership levels also have higher levels of subjective well-being. In addition, states/countries with more active labor unions tend to have a stronger social safety net (welfare generosity, unemployment insurance, etc.), which previous research links to higher levels of subjective well-being among citizens.”
I think it is now time for the US justice system to focus on some of the worst corruption in the US, Walmart corproation.
US Department of Labor statistics show that median weekly salaries and wages for union members in 2013 were $950, and weekly salaries and wages for non-union members in 2013 were $750.
The U.S. Justice Department has agreed to end the government’s 25-year oversight of the 1.4 million-member International Brotherhood of Teamsters union — though it will still have the right to monitor some union functions for another five years.
The U.S. attorney in New York asked a federal judge to end the consent order that’s been in place since March 1989. The union and government entered into the consent decree in 1989 in settlement of a civil racketeering suit brought against the Teamsters by Rudolph Giuliani, who was then the U.S. attorney in New York. The suit alleged that the union had made a “devil’s pact” with organized crime and was dominated by the mob — or La Cosa Nostra, as the FBI referred to the Mafia.
“We anticipate that she will approve the agreement,” Teamsters President James Hoffa said in a written statement Wednesday.
“This is a historic day for our Teamsters,” said Hoffa, a Michigan native who splits his time between Washington and Michigan. “After decades of hard work and millions of dollars spent, we can finally say that corrupt elements have been driven from the Teamsters and that the government oversight can come to an end.”
A recent study may give some workers reason to reconsider. For those who belong to a union, membership seems to bring a benefit that perhaps surpasses better wages or generous health insurance: higher life satisfaction.
The study authors, Patrick Flavin, an assistant professor at Baylor University, and Gregory Shufeldt, an assistant professor at the University of Arkansas, Little Rock, used data from five different years between the early 1980s and mid-2000s, conducted in the United States, of the World Values Survey, a research project focusing on people’s beliefs. As they write in the report, they found that “union members are more satisfied with their lives than those who are not members and that the substantive effect of union membership on life satisfaction is large and rivals other common predictors of quality of life.”
In their study, they note that union membership appears to have an effect independent of factors like income. “We statistically control for a series of demographic factors to isolate the relationship between union membership and subjective well-being and ensure that union members aren’t happier simply because they have higher incomes, etc.,” Mr. Flavin and Mr. Shufeldt told Op-Talk. “When we account for that series of possible confounding factors” — these include income, education, gender, age, marital status, self-reported health, employment status and church attendance — “we find that labor union members are more satisfied with their lives than non-members.”
The effect, moreover, is powerful. The study notes that union membership offers a bigger boost in satisfaction than an increase in income, for example (but, to be sure, less than getting married).
“We believe the substantive effect of being a union member on subjective well-being is important and relatively large when compared to other typical predictors,” the authors told Op-Talk.
Instead of the typical welfare parasite excuses that aren't actual based on truth or facts.
Yesterday this poster made nearly 100 posts, over 7 hours of a Sunday, making excuses for being a welfare parasite and supporting WMT 's corporate abuse of welfare.
Looks like shep 21998 is already awake making here excuses for being a welfare parasite.
Keep trying my little welfare parasite shep2l998. You have yet to make one valid excuse for a company that makes billions in profit to be using welfare to subsidize it workforce.
