Doom and Gloom Zoom, lol, I like it..They just recently tried to unionize the Walmart Tire Shop near my home. They wanted a 2 dollar/hour raise, a chance to pick their hours by senority and they wanted Walmart to pitch in 20% for a health care plan. Hey! If they want that crap why don't they go to college and get a real job! There were 8 guys working in the shop and one hero voted against the union, they found him in the parking lot late that night with his cranium cracked. The thugs or his co workers got him and now he has the brain poweer of an 8 year old. When he finally did get out of the hospital Walmart rehired him as a greeter..I say hi to him everytime I go in there.

And P.S.- On another thread Zoom suggested I travel to Iran and Syria on vacation..She said it was great! And she wasn't joking! I'm sure she highly recomends North Korea as well


lol

Yes... no matter what the subject you get the same response from Doom & Gloom.. Don't mind difference of opinion ... just would like a mature response...

I personally am not a Walmart fan but it has to do with the physical appearance of the store, not the "morals", etc, etc.

Actually walmart isnt the ONLY department stores who use China's cheap labor. Carefour and many others. Actually walmart is one of the biggest employers in the USA. Considering you only need to walk talk and chew gum at the same time to work at a place like that your wages shouldnt be $20.00 a hour. Minimum wage is more like it. Why? for your lack of minimum motivation to better yourself. If you prefer working at walmart and for the pay they offer dont complain. you can always work at walmart and go to college part time. Also walmart creates jobs. If you notice, when a walmart opens, look to see how many other businesses open next to them. walmart created jobs in logistics shipping and other areas.As for slave workers in China they are more than happy to work for what wage they get. Why? because they save money and use it to open their own businesses with family and others. Remember the way of life there isnt the same as in the USA. Now if the USA can get Japan South Korea and a few others to lower tariffs on American products and make a level playing field maybe the USA can crrate more jobs. Take a look at the tariffs these countries have on american products. Asian countries are way more protective than the USA on FREE TRADE.

Zoom,

I am so happy for your move to France. You and your strong anti-US, anti-corporate attitude ought to love it. Say hello to the 20% unemployed and underemployed while you're there. Ironically, they probably feel the same as you. But if you can just keep voting for more business regulation and more government handouts, you never have to worry about those evil employers. BTW, the US should be in the same boat as France in just a few years. If you can just wait long enough, we won't have profit-mongering corporations left either...just a huge government granting benefits to the unproductive.

Is it the Chinese SLAVE LABOR that they use to keep prices at rock bottom to increase already insane profits even higher or is it how they open their mega giant monsters in small towns all over the world putting struggling "Ma and Pa" shops out of business? This is a great, IMHO, concept leaving one with no choices to shop at and TOTALLY stripping the charm and distinction out of any small town/giant city they touch. My dream is to go to China one day and watch a fellow human being work for 12 hours in a hot, stinky factory making junk T-shirts and other garbage for this horrendous house of horrors .

Oh , in case you're worried about those other struggling owners of WALMART there's really no need to. Being the 11th and 3 way tie for 12th richest Humans on the planet they should do OK. Let's see, JIM WALTON (61) comes in at 11th richest human on earth with a yearly income of about $18 BILLION (that's 18 Thousand Million !!!) I don't know how one is able to spend 18 MILLION so having to spend 1,000 times that per year seems impossible - but better than letting someone else have some, eh?. It must feel like being some kind of god to have that much so why not have fun? Let their dad (SAM WALTON - Founder of Walmart, deceased, but not forgotten) build the largest chain in the world than they can have it also.

Rounding out the 3 way tie for 12th richest humans in the world is ALICE (59), CHRISTY (54), and S. ROBSON WALTON (65) at about 18 BILLION a piece. That's a total of 72 BILLION dollars. Now instead of 4 families having all that we could have seen thousands and thousands of hard working families owning and running their own little stores but than the WALTON family couldn't practice the sick greed they seem to so dearly love and be addicted to. You'll never see me walk through the doors of this despicable place, I'd rather walk up the ass of a beached whale.......... PS. I also love how they ONLY sell "Clean Version" music CD's - AKA Censored - ha, protect us Walton family (I guess that makes them highly "moral" - please don't pay attention to the slaves sleeping on the dirty Chinese floors) What a joke Walmart and that sick, super greedy family is) Ready to vomit, Zoom (SO ready to ZOOM out of the USA for good)
Yes, please. ZOOM far and away!
