A number of the talking heads today are referring to the demonstrations at various Wal Mart stores as a strike. I know the unions would love this to be a strike, but it is not. It is disruption and intimidation.

The claims against WalMart by the Huffington Post, Moveon.org, et.al want to make it seems like WalMart is the worst of the retailers with low pay, hourly workers, etc. However, this is not the case. many, if not most retailers today employ a lot of hourly - part-time workers. As far as salries go, this is just a sample of the averages.

WalMart - $8.82
Target - $8.29
J. C. Penney - $8.31
Gap - $8.61
Victoria's Secret - $8.20
Best Buy - 8.74
Home Depot - $9.00+
Macy's - $8.60

What is at stake is the 1.4 million workers of WalMart that the Left/unions would love to have in their camp.

Let's do a chik-fil-a - shomp at WalMart this holiday week-end.

disclaimer - I actually have nothing to do with WalMart and I avoid it if possible.

This is just what I suspected when I thought about the issue after watching the news coverage this evening. Why single out Walmart for low wages when there are plenty of other companies paying just as poorly... or worse? It just doesn't make any sense to me.

The unions salivate over 1.4 million new members, each kicking in 5 or 10 bucks a week in union dues.

Just think how many executive retreats can be funded by that? How many more employees can be added to union rolls. HOw much more extortion they would have if they got Walmart...everyone else would cave one by one. And just think how many politicians they could buy from the union dues of 1.4 million Walmart employees?


That's what it is all about. Power.


Not representing the 'worker' but simply using the worker as a pawn.

The unions would do to Walmart what they just did to Hostess. Thousands of 'work rules'. Grievances all the time. Time wasting grievance hearing and of course, another 10,000 lawyers required for all the complaints........ promotions based on 'seniority' and not merit. and on and on.
