    It’s not so much hatred for the poor. The liberals hate Walmart because it’s not a union shop. The unions, with collapsing numbers, need all the Walmart employees and the revenue streams for their pockets. Not to mention the money laundering, exploitation, embezzlement etc. opportunities that would come with it,

    What a J ARse!!

    Why doesn’t he just say, BOTTOM FEEDERS.

    You see, this is exactly what is wrong with America. WHAT WE SAY WILL COME BACK TO BITE YOU.

    Maybe the Walmart shoppers, your grandmother, sister, brother, mother or father will come across this dubious insight and regrettably disingenuous twitter and have Old Pete for breakfast.

    Blah, blah, blah…
    Obungle’s NLRB will unionize Wally World.
    It’s what the people gave Obungle a mandate for.
    If Wally World doesn’t like it, they can close shop.

    I realize that some other grocery chains in D.C. are also non-union. But for an employer facing a lot of skepticism, it would seem like allowing employees to unionize if they chose would ease your entry into this market. If you say that your wages and benefits are competitive with those offered by other grocery chains anyway, why not allow them union representation?

    Because I think our associates, time and again, have recognized that it’s not a better deal for them. I think we’ve got a pretty good track record, and I can point to some examples, where our associates have turned down the opportunity to join a union, time and time again. I mean, the organizing effort is fairly aggressive. We have a clear and open line of communication with our associates. Our associates recognize that they appreciate that, and they know that the wages and benefits they receive are extremely competitive in the industry.

    But why not allow staff in each store to make that choice for themselves?

    I don’t know why you think it’s not offered.

    Well, I’m thinking in particular of a a recent posting for a labor relations position that makes it pretty clear that fighting unions is part of the job description.

    I would go back to the point too that the overwhelming majority of retailers here in DC, across the country, are not unionized businesses. And as you point out, there are several grocers here that are not union grocers. So the same question should probably be asked of all of those businesses.

    Walmart shoppers for the most part are poor and fat? That is what I get from his tweets.

    Well, I’m no Twiggy, but am not fat, definitely not “poor” and like shopping at Walmart and not just for food. I have some very nice window treatments I purchased there. Have to admit, I was a little apprehensive but after hanging them, was pleasantly surprised.

    Malkin Attacks Union ‘Thugs’ and Black Friday Strikers

    Ah yes… somebody’s got to look out for those poor, oppressed millionaires and billionaires and stand up to those evil union thugs and Occupy protesters: Malkin Reacts to Union Protests: ‘People Need to Understand That Big Labor Thugs Don’t Have Workers Best Interests at Heart’:

    Unions are now flexing their muscle, targeting ports, airlines, and stores just as holiday travel and the shopping season kick into high gear. Adding to that, billionaire George Soros is reportedly urging people to join anti-Walmart protests on Black Friday, even if they don’t work for Walmart. Critics claim it’s all part of a massive effort to unionize Walmart’s 1.4 million employees nationwide, which could bring in billions in union dues.

    According to Michelle Malkin, these strikes aren’t about protecting workers, but are about protecting entrenched big labor power. During an appearance on Your World, Malkin called the protests a “toxic combination of these left-wing activist groups funded by George Soros … along with a rag tag group of Occupiers across the country who’ve been fomenting this kind of agitation for agitation’s sake for more than a year now.”

    She stressed, “People really need to understand that these big labor thugs do not have workers interests at heart.”

    How many people think this hateful woman would ever put up with the conditions or the wages of those who are working these jobs at Walmart? She’s got that wingnut welfare coming in which pays quite a bit more than those minimum wage workers make and she’s more than happy to help Fox attack them in yet another day in upside down land on GOPTV.

    Questioning Susan Rice Is Racist and Sexist

    Several Democratic members of Congress held a press conference today in defense of Susan Rice. Representative Marcia Fudge (D., OH), the new leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, said Republicans could not question Rice’s qualifications for Secretary of State and suggested that any attempts to do so were inspired by racism and sexism:

    How do you say a person like Susan Rice is not qualified? You may not like her, you may not like the administration, but don’t say she’s not qualified. She is the most qualified person I’m sure that any of you know, that these senators know. . . . It is a shame that any time anything goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities. I have a real issue with that. . . . For you who are haters, as the young people say, your hate is going nowhere. Just go on and hate on, but look in the mirror and hate yourself, not the people that do this work.

    Black Friday Walmart strike fizzles

    […………….]

    Ferreira has worked for Walmart for eight years in the cakes department, where she decorates cakes. But she says that her wages are too low, at nearly $12 per hour, to survive on. Which, of course, begs the question of how she’s been living on those wages for eight years.

    “They pay low wages, then the taxpayers pick up the tab for food stamps and Medicaid,” said Ferreira. “They need to take care of their people. They need to be responsible to their workers.”

    People shouldn’t question Ms. Ferreira’s sincerity. It’s quite likely that she believes strongly in unionization. That said, it’s apparent Ms. Ferreira’s’ unionization fever isn’t spreading to others.

    The union movement is failing and politicians are noticing. It isn’t just this morning’s failure or Gov. Scott Walker’s reforms in Wisconsin either. Unions tried to make collective bargaining rights part of the Michigan state constitution. That failed:

    Michigan Proposal 2
    No 2,624,126 votes, 57%
    Yes 1,947,209 votes, 42%

    If the AFL-CIO can’t push through a constitutional amendment that enshrines collective bargaining rights in Michigan, the union is essentially mortally wounded. Trumka’s AFL-CIO poured millions of dollars into that campaign, too, meaning it was the AFL-CIO’s highest priority this election season.

    Today’s Black Friday walkout of Walmart is another stinging defeat for the unions. They started this administration with great fanfare and authority. After that fast start, though, they’ve been stumbling ever since.

    http://www.examiner.com/article/black-friday-walmart-strike-fizzles

    Ferreira has lost that 8 year job. Maybe she planned this and had another job a ready. Who Cares. Many other cake decorators are waiting in line.

    That is why we lost election. MEDIA, UNIONS, RACIST, TAKING OVER.

  • Oliver

    The point of the Tweets was to demonstrate the Law of Unintended Consequences, something Leftie do-gooders never seem to understand. It’s the same basic principle that was behind the Occupy Movement.

    A couple thousand “poor” Walmart workers don’t make a living wage, therefore they should unionize. If they Unionize, prices will go up, and millions of “poor” people can’t afford to buy as much food as they once did.

    In other words, helping a few causes hurt to many.

    See the principle in action any time you hear the words: “level the playing field”, “for the common good”, “it’s the fair thing to do”.

    Every time you do something to “help” one group, someone else suffers. That’s simple PHYSICS: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

    The tweeter was trying to make a broader point, his tweets had nothing to do with Walmart per se.

  • Buzzy

    If the union thugs that were unsuccessful in protesting at Wal Mart stores didn’t drive manufacturing out of the country, you wouldn’t be shopping for cheap Chinese made products. You would be purchasing products made in the USA for the same competitive prices, and that would create thousands or millions of jobs right here where we need them.

    The whole decades-long assault on WalMart can be reduced to two bullet points:

    1. WalMart is nonunion.

    2. The Waltons tend to be Republican and conservative.

    All the arguments made about WalMart driving mom-and-pop stores out of business is nonsense. That process started over a century ago with the rise of Sears Roebuck and Montgomery Ward. If WalMart is hurting anyone, it’s Sears, Kmart, Target, etc.

    And does anyone other than a Section VIII parasite who doesn’t know what a “job” is really believe that mom-and-pop stores pay better wages and offer better benefits than a corporate retail chain? Only if the employee calls the boss “Dad” or “Mom.”

    Why do Democrats hate the poor so much?

    They don’t hate the poor, they love the poor. They want more people poor, and to keep them poor (and dumbed down).

  • Richard Aubrey

    Some years back, a guy wrote a book on Walmart. He didn’t like it. However, as an admission against interest, he noted that when W moves into a market, grocery prices drop by about 15%.
    That’s by their own prices and competition forcing other stores to meet them, at least part way.
    In effect, that’s six weeks free food for the poor.
    Hard to see what’s wrong with that.

  • SoLongSong

    Libs have been waging a war on Walmart for almost as long as I can remember. They’re like battering rams that never give up. They push and push and push and push without relenting.

    That’s how they got obamacare and how they’ve slowly gotten their progressive agenda in place. Push by push, bit by bit.

    It’s wearying. We needs us a cannon.

    Maybe we should try to teach the ultra-rich Democrats to sympathize more with the poor. I was on vacation once with a couple of my friends who happen to be very rich Democrats (which is very amusing since I was raised in poverty in Appalachia) when my husband and I had to stop by a Wal-Mart to buy something. They refused to go inside. When we came back, they said they did not shop at Wal-Mart because it drove smaller stores out of business and they were not going to help Wal-Mart do that. I asked softly, “Well, if the poor did not have Wal-Mart stores, where would they be able to afford to shop for their food.” The next time we were out with them, we stopped at another Wal-Mart and they went in that time. There is always hope.
