I thought shep said she was retired due to all the money she made on WalMart stock over many years.
Where DUE you work and what is your position?
I agree WMT should pay what is right but that should be between (employee) them and WMT
Should be? Are you trying to say Spldinggrey didn't know what he was to be paid BEFORE he took his job at WalMart?
Looks like a LOT! Can't say I've ever seen ANY union that liked WalMart employees not being forced to pay DUES!
How many unions contributed to the democrat that did the survey about WalMart?
63 employees from that lawsuit 6 years ago at WalMart?
Lets see. 2 million employees at WalMart. The union pimps claim turn over is 70% a year. 6 years ago. You DUE the math!
Looks like safeway just got sold too. You can be no rich, white, republican private equity firm is going to buy WalMart!
Pretty sad that someone would say that about fellow Americans. Even if a few of them work at WalMart.
"That's just how those anti WalMart union pimps roll!"
Save money, Live Better at WalMart so more your tax dollars can go to criminals.
You working on Phils and Tigers hate spewing messages, or just working on the anti-union posters?
WalMart, saving the average family $2,500 a year........ Even if you don't shop there!
Hows that going for you Squid?
BTW, Save Money, Live Better. Shop WalMart where Americans spend 1/2 a trillion dollars a year.
Pretty slick! Bashing the rich as evil while making then richer by the day. And the poor lemmings lick Obama's Barker Blacks while he makes them more poor by the day.
Please, stop and thank President Obama for the record stock market returns
Especially if you are the 1% like the Koch brothers and the Waltons!
In terms of types of financial wealth, the top one percent of households have 35% of all privately held stock, 64.4% of financial securities, and 62.4% of business equity. The top ten percent have 81% to 94% of stocks, bonds, trust funds, and business equity, and almost 80% of non-home real estate. Since financial wealth is what counts as far as the control of income-producing assets, we can say that just 10% of the people own the United States of America
Justice Dept.: At Least 35% Of People Eligible For Obamacare's Medicaid Expansion Have Criminal Histories
If you listen to the President, and other supporters of Obamacare, you might get the impression that the reason why tens of millions of Americans go without health insurance is because these people have pre-existing conditions, and health insurers are too mean to cover them. The truth is quite different. Less than a million Americans lack health insurance because of a pre-existing condition. And it turns out that a good number of Americans are uninsured not because they are sick, but because they are convicted criminals.
When Obamacare was signed into law in 2010, the Congressional Budget Office estimated that half of the law’s expansion of health insurance coverage would come from expanding Medicaid, America’s government-run health insurance program for the poor. However, in 2012, the Supreme Court ruled that states could decline to expand their Medicaid programs; thus far, 25 states have held off. As the debate continues in those holdout states, one data point has gotten almost no attention.
It turns out that more than a third of the U.S. population eligible for the Medicaid expansion are ex-cons. In 2011, the U.S. Department of Justice estimated that “at least 35 percent of new Medicaid eligibles under the Affordable Care Act will have a history of criminal involvement.”
PLEASANTON -- As the effects of Safeway's reported $9 billion merger with Albertson's reverberates around the supermarket industry, in Pleasanton, home of Safeway's corporate headquarters, city leaders are bracing for the fallout.
With about 2,600 local employees between its Pleasanton grocery stores and headquarters' operations, Safeway is the city's second largest employer.
Is that good for the American consumer?
Safeway has agreed to pay $2,250,000 and litigation costs to settle a lawsuit by Marin County prosecutors alleging false advertising and unfair competition, the district attorney announced Thursday.
The litigation also alleged that Safeway violated a 2008 injunction over alleged pricing discrepancies, said Marin County District Attorney Edward Berberian.
"The Marin County District Attorney's Office remains committed to prosecuting pricing accuracy violations and ensuring consumers pay no more for items then advertised," Berberian said in a statement released by his office.
"close stores across California and the Southwest"
Does that mean people are going to lose their jobs?
PLEASANTON -- The days of the conventional supermarket are numbered.
Safeway's announcement last month that it was in talks to sell itself is the latest sign from the troubled grocery industry that supermarkets have fallen out of style. A sale of the nation's second-largest grocery chain, with a stronghold in the Bay Area, would reshape the industry, close stores across California and the Southwest, and transform Safeway into a neighborhood grocer that more closely resembles Trader Joe's, according to analysts and industry watchers.
Reports Wednesday indicated that a sale to New York-based private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management could be finalized this week.
