    Left-wing billionaire George Soros’ MoveOn.org has jumped into the fight for a unionized Wal-Mart workforce.

    MoveOn.org has sent emails to subscribers nationwide, urging them to descend on Wal-Mart stores on Black Friday. The organization is encouraging people to strike against management even if they aren’t Wal-Mart employees.



    In recent weeks, unions have stepped up their efforts to gain influence among Wal-Mart’s workforce, which is one of the largest in the country — totaling about 1.4 million people nationwide, by MoveOn.org’s estimates. Such a large workforce would potentially bring in billions in union dues for whichever labor group gets to the workers first.



    With Soros on board this time around, though, and a liberal National Labor Relations Board that will stay that way for at least the next four years because of President Barack Obama’s re-election, the unions appear emboldened.


    “Now, with the busiest shopping season of the year just days away, the UFCW is openly orchestrating and promoting attempted mass disruptions of Wal-Mart’s customer shopping experience.”

    Keep thinking that union leaders care about the employees/issues and not just the dues.

    You guys should be cheering Soros on. Disruption of the Wal-Mart "shopping experience" could represent a financial windfall for the right wing fruicake who runs Target.

    Your title is a lie. George Soros doesn't own MoveOn and hasn't even donated to MoveOn since 2004. In 2004 he MATCHED individual donations to a now closed 527 organization called the 2004 MoveOn Voter Fund.
