Wal-Mart- Record Profits, Everyday Low Wages!
Have you seen the movie,"DUNE", where the House Harkonnan scum squeeze the planet for every drop of 'spice' from the ground?
Wal-Mart workers are feeling the same squeeze.
Get more from hiring less and demanding more from current workers- It's called the 'Speed up'. Had to wait to cash out at Wal-Marts? It's not by accident.
Sam Walton must be turning over in his grave to see what his children have done to his dream.
Wal-Mart workers are protesting everyday low wages and they have a point.
I know for a fact that Wal-Mart does wages the way some Third World country would.
I worked there between sales jobs for four months. It's all I could stand. My soul was crying out, "Uncle". I feel the employee's pain.
Wal-Mart 'trains' all of it's employees before they hit the floor.
That training involves modulars on the computer for the specifics of what your job entails.
One of those 'modulars' is about 'not joining a union'.
No. Wal-Mart doesn't want a union.
And they want you to report to management if someone approaches you to join a union. Made me wonder why. Are lousy wages being addressed by Wal-Mart's open door policies?
When you see how Wal-Mart's management and owners treat their workers, their television ads just don't ring true.
You're not working your way up at Wal-Marts - or any other corporation in America that have low wages as part of their corporate "wring the profits from the workers" policies.
And our government representatives? They're rubber stamps for corporate strategies to screw the American workers.
There was another time in America's history where this was done to workers by businesses and government- in the thirties.
Ever seen the movie, "F.I.S.T."?
That time is coming again. Soon.
