Ha, there is a Walmart next door to us, and our union rep always tell us to never go in there and how evil it is. Which, granted it is evil, but its so dang cheap!

I agree. Unions started out doing well. But it seems they do more harm than good.

Sure $50 bucks might seem like alot now but wait till your managers stop being nice abd fire you and your union gets you $50 million in an unlawful firing law suit.


I'm a hard worker, and i do my job right. Why would they suddenly stop being nice to me when I don't do anything wrong?

I'm sure the union gives a damn about some 16 year olds summer job.

De-unionize? Doubt it, the rich fat-cats are too powerful.

Our dues go up, the president gets a new car. That kinda deal.
