Republicans said that it would trickle down to the workers. What happened? Was the supply side republican promise just a lie? Obama can do nothing about that so all we can do now is have congress change the laws so Obama has a say over where the money goes. Call your congressman and start a petition to give Obama the ability to dictate where the money goes.
They also sell a lot of groceries from overseas. Try to find any seafood in Walmart that isn't from China. Good luck. I won't buy seafood or fish from China. Too much contamination in the waters especially after the Japan Nuclear problems from the Tsunami. I went in a Walmart store to look where the products were from. I was outside the grocery department but I looked at probably 35-40 products and not one of them were made in the US. That's treasonous in my opinion.
You forgot the rest of the story where Mike Dukes speech was interrupted for ten minutes because he could not be heard over the sound of the laughter.
SHANGHAI, April 17 (Reuters) - China's workforce is growing more restive as it shrinks.
The number of strikes so far this year is up by close to a third - the biggest surge in protests since the global financial crisis, according to one labour group - as businesses cut costs and foreign companies restructure or close operations in response to slowing growth in the world's second-biggest economy.
There are no accurate national statistics on the total number of strikes, work stoppages and protests in China, but China Labour Bulletin, a Hong Kong-based labour rights group, says there were 119 last month alone.
Employers face an uncomfortable new reality: workers who not only know their rights and will challenge management to defend them, but who also demand more than the legal minimum.
"This is going to be a very tough year for employers in China," said Lesli Ligorner, Shanghai-based partner at Simmons & Simmons. "There will be more strife and strikes. It's only going to continue."
Thousands of workers at a factory in Dongguan in the Pearl River Delta run by Yue Yuen Industrial Holdings, the world's largest shoe maker, have been on strike for around 10 days demanding improved social insurance payments, a pay rise and more equitable contracts.
Other companies caught up in this rising tide of worker unrest so far include Wal-Mart Stores Inc, which is negotiating with the union at a store it closed last month; International Business Machines Corp (IBM), where staff at a Shenzhen computer server factory protested over insufficient severance pay during the transfer of the plant's ownership to Lenovo Group Ltd last month, and Samsung SDI Co Ltd, whose supplier Shanmukang Technology negotiated with workers over social insurance contributions after a strike in March.
That flies in the face of what the people on Fox News were saying that it wasn't the weather but people didn't have money to spend. Believe what you hear on the racist station and you will lose your money.
That pretty much tells that things are tough for her and her family. I like fresh produce but I buy it from a certified organic farm in the area. No reason to be one of the dirt people.
WMT is too stupid to figure it out. They need to bring someone with a brain in from outside to run the company. Its obvious nobody currently with the company qualifies.
The real demand in Arkansas is for Meth.
They deserve to be paid. The schools make millions off these players who risk their health playing the sports that the school benefits from.
I love Amazon. Probably 65% of my non food retail dollars are spent at Amazon and that will go up when Amazon Fresh comes into my area.
I checked it out because I've been thinking about getting a laser printer and that sounded like a good price. Those are new printers. They have used ones for $60 and refurbished ones for $69. I hope that was just a mistake on your part and not a lie in your eyes.
Revenue 1.2 billion
Revenue 176 million
You have to admit that it makes as much sense as your reply to my post. Another non thinker on ignore. See ya
WalMart charges that much more yet they rely on the taxpayers to supplement the poverty wages they pay their employees. That's just not right. Time to quit funneling more billions to the Walton's and send that money to the workers.
WMT does seem to be a magnet for all the sickos and whackos. Maybe the toes taste better then the pink slime.
You're trying to play a game of semantics because you don't have the knowledge to understand. You can call it income tax or you can call it revenue tax. Doesn't matter. But what they call individual income taxes these days would technically be better described as revenue tax.
Again, you are jumping to conclusions. I said nothing about a flat tax, I was talking about a level playing field for individuals and corporations. That can easily be done without a flat tax. Just let individuals deduct the cost of their expenses just like a business or have no deductions at all and have both groups pay taxes on their revenue, which individuals are basically doing now. A graduated flat tax would work though if structured properly and fairly. Now I'm done with you. You are just to dense to understand even very basic concepts. That's why you're stuck working at WMT. I have people with some brains to discuss things with now.
Exactly my point. The politicians have made it to where individuals play what amounts to revenue taxes and corporations pay income taxes but they call the individuals taxes, income tax. We should all pay the same whether you call it a revenue tax or an income tax. Now I can't draw pictures on here for you, so if you still can't grasp it, I can't help you. Many of you people are the boobs the corporations make you out to be and as long as they string people like you along, things can't change. Talking to you is like talking to a brick wall. Thick.
You don't seem to have even a vague understanding of the tax system. Basically all a businesses expenses are deducted from revenue to give them the figure that they have to pay taxes on. Almost no household expenses are able to be deducted from revenue to get the figure that you have to pay taxes on. I said nothing about a write off for cost of good. Its expenses. I spent 36 years in finance so don't even try to tell me whats going on. Why should taxes on corporations be treated and different then taxes on individual households? They shouldn't. After all, the republican members of the supreme court said corporations are people and in case you didn't hear them, Mitt Romney said "Corporations are people, my friends".
Do you honestly think that corporations pay taxes on the money they spend to pay their electric bills? They don't, they deduct that before coming up with a taxable figure but individuals do pay taxes on the money they spend to pay their electric bill. Corporations spend millions trying to fool people and confuse them and judging from you people, they got their money's worth.
And that's how you got pink slime and salmonella recalls.
Most certainly. With a few exceptions , the average joe doesn't get to write off the things a corporation does. Why should corporations be any different except that they own a lot of politicians. A household has basically the same expenses as a business so why should corporations or individuals be treated differently? In other words, all the write offs that corporations get should be eliminated. Why should a corporation not have to pay taxes on the cost of their electric bill, gas bill, building, repair expenses, insurance, vehicle costs and gas and a host of other things and individuals have to? They shouldn#$%$ called corporations buying politicians and its particularly bad with the republicans who are 100% owned by the corporations. Sounds like you've had the wool pulled over your eyes by the hucksters.
