Walmart does not have the bargains in clothing, electronics and toys that just shopping on the Internet can do if you're a savvy price shopper like me," said Strain, 39..........Thank you Strain, People are finally realizing prices are as cheap elsewhere. UNIONIZE WALMART!

The problem is too many people don't shop around. You can get much better quality clothing at KOHL'S for the same price. The reason for UNIONS at WAL-MART is to CONTROL the GREEDY UPPER MANAGEMENT. The workers have been working off the clock to keep them "PART-TIME" so they didn't have FULL-TIME benefits.
Free LABOR?????????? TIME TO UNIONIZE!!!!! Shop around there is better quality and prices at other stores.

I can guarantee you that if a Wal Mart store unionizes the store will close. Wal mart owns their stores so they really don't give a damn about leases or any other crap. They will shut the store down and those 200+ workers can just get another job at all the other companies hiring in your area.

Jones, its people like you that dont realize what is really going on. Reagan wanted a global economy??? We have been in a global economy since the 30's. Ford Motor Co had established plants in a few other countries before WWII. Everybody else was buying our stuff. That is until greed and the unions and Walmart screwed everything up.
Union YES, you are a moron as well....believe everything your union reps tell you, until its to late and you lost your job to someone in China or India.

What's with you, you sound like a parrot repeating what I said . We also sold a lot of scrap steel to Japan prior to WW11 that they sent back to us.

Ford Motor Company ?????? Henry Ford was as big a semitic hater as Hitler. He would have liked to capture the Nazi car market under Herr Schickelgruber .

There is nothing made in this country from Cabela's, Crossings to Bon Ton . Even sounds Chinese like ping pong ****.

I can't remember the last time I needed a pump made by victaulic.
