The Walmart Strikes

I was sad to read this:

Scattered Walmart strikes don't dent Black Friday bottom line

You think that enough Americans would care about their fellow Americans to know that Wal-mart's minimum wages are forcing too many of their fellow Americans to be on welfare. I guess all the "deals" and "greed" count for far more. I don't blame someone in a rural county who is stuck with Walmart, because to get a pair of underwear or a trashcan even necessitates a two hour round trip, but wow, at least stay home, while the workers are standing up for themselves. There's plenty of other days in the week. Don't be a shopper "scab"!

"Scattered strikes and protests by Walmart workers and their supporters in at least nine states may have scored symbolic points Friday by taking on the retail giant head-on, but apparently they did little to keep shoppers away as the company quickly claimed its best Black Friday ever. The company said in a statement Friday morning that its stores rang up almost 10 million transactions from the time doors opened for Black Friday shoppers at 8 p.m. Thursday until midnight, or about 5,000 items per second."

The striking Walmart workers have legitimate complaints. Course if no one cared when Wal-mart nationwide closed and destroyed multitudes of small businesses in small towns--we saw the result of this in our last town, I suppose those same people do not care about the people who work at Wal-mart for poverty wages.--The Squawker

    ...Making mudpies, are we, Sebastian? Welcome back for a one-sentence return from your igloo.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as you can see, it seems that some of Blofeld's henchmen are still eluding capture.

    It seems that SPECTRE is most unhappy about the outcome of the election, which it hoped to use as leverage for a new round of blackmail. Alas, it didn't work.

    Rest assured, however, that Commander Bond is working with his Interpol counterparts to regain control over the situation.

    We will update you lot as soon as the bulletin comes down from Q Branch. :-) --The Reckoner
