Exactly...The only reason they do not target those stores is because they are not the top of their industries. It is the same protester crowd that targets "evil" Starbucks. Notice a trend here? Only the most successful companies with no unions are targeted as "evil." The other, smaller companies, who have sometimes much worse labor and trade practices, get off free.Why pick on Wal-Mart where do you think Target-Kmart-Myer's and others get there items. They get them the same place as Walmart dose. If the UAW strikes it's just another nail in there coffin.:yup:
I think you meant to say "did" a great deal of good. Not anymore...One day they started to get politcal and spend all of their members' money on political agendas, not what the worker needed and deserved through their hard-earned union dues. They have thrown all their eggs into one political basket and lost because of it.This is a point lost to many American's today, the fact that unions have done a great deal of good for us all.
It was not the UAW that made any of the bad choices that got GM into the position that it was in today.
It was GM who made the choice not to make products that could compete which allowed Japanese automakers to get a foot hold in America.
Yet its those union workers who have to pay for the bad choices made by GM.
And I agree with you on this...Problem is we are living in today not yesterday, and we have to think about tomorrow...I think alot of people on this site should do there history on the UAW and the big 3 before they start all of the bashing. The UAW helped set the standard for alot of the safty rules in todays work places. Thats just 1 thing, I could go on and on
As far as Wal-Mart goes, please educate yourself on the company before you make such ludicrous statements about how wonderful they are. Start with this congressional committees' findings. http://www.mindfully.org/Industry/2004/Wal-Mart-Labor-Record16feb04.htm
Wal-mart is far worse today than when that committee was published.
