Labor thugs try to intimidate Walmart into raising prices



Union thugs picket Walmart to try go intimidate it to raise wages.

Ronee Hinton, a cashier at a Walmart in Laurel, Md., joined a morning protest at the Walmart in Washington, calling on the company to increase everyone’s pay to at least $15 and hour and give more workers full-time and less erratic schedules. In recent days, leaders of Our Walmart, a union-backed group of Walmart employees, said there would be protests at 1,600 stores on Black Friday.

Walmart said that it paid competitive wages and that its employees, full time and part time, averaged nearly $12 an hour.

Consider this: Walmart labor is 100% UNSKILLED LABOR. Many of their employees have not even graduated high school. Many don't even have basic job skills, like showing up on time and learning how to follow instructions. If employees are worth more, let them apply for jobs that PAY more. But the fact is that they aren't worth more because they have no skills. What do they expect if they have no skills, to make $50 an hour plus benefits? This isn't government jobs we're talking about here.

Furthermore, Walmart has extremely LOW profit margins. If your raised wages at the asian sweatshops where people make Apple products, Apple can easily absorb the costs because of all the profits it makes per sale. But with a 1% profit rate, when labor costs go up, prices have to go up. Many poor and working class people shop at Wal-Mart. To raise prices for unskilled labor, millions of poor people would be punished by having to pay higher prices. You help MORE poor people by keeping costs down than you do by raising them.

Linda Haluska, a nighttime stocker in Glenwood, Ill., was among those arrested for obstructing traffic outside a Chicago Walmart. “I do believe not just this protest, but many protests I made in the past, they all make Walmart pay attention to us,” said Ms. Haluska, who earns $12.65 after nine years at Walmart. “Although they don’t give us credit, they listen to us.”

Oh my goodness! Only $12.65 after 9 years!!!! What does that tell you? That tells me that Linda has a big empty space between her ears. If she truly were a valuable employee, she would have been promoted into management or managed to parlayed the skills she learned into a better job. That's why it's called an "entry level" job. If you don't try, don't strive, or don't have a brain, of course you'll be in the same slot for 9 years or 90! (NyTimes)
