    Guess what will happen. They'll be fired and replaced as easily as snapping your fingers. And then they will end up on the unemployemnet rolls. Some one from the big labor unions got to them but they will pay the price. Seen it happen here in my hometown. The unions got to school bus drivers with promises of pie in the sky. They voted the union in but not before the company lowered the rate for all new drivers. Fast forward exactly one year later. Those same workers threw the union out. All the union wants is the dues.

    I find deals just as good on the internet. I can't stand the freakshow that is Walmart.

    Heinous, overweight rednecks in stretchy pants with Romney stickers and Bible thumping slogans plastered all over their minivans.
    Ghetto ignorance on full display from Barack voters; cutting people and buying giant TV's for their section 8 provided housing.

    The worst of this country will be in attendance representing both parties, clogging up aisles and making my shopping experience a living hell.

    STAY AWAY.

    Overall wal mart pays low wages,keeps you under 40 hours so as not to give you benefits and any hint of dissent is immediately suppressed...maybe union is not the answer but something needs to be done.

    Walmart will never do unions. Let them walk out they will still have enough people there to take care and hire a bunch of people the next day. In this economy is not the time to picket .. Just saying

    Typical hypocrisy. He supports anarchy but wants big gubmint to intervene and protect him when it comes to his personal benefit.
