Dear republicans - the work force is part of those market forces you believe always balance out. Why didn't it balance out? Maybe Mittens can buy it up and "build it himself" by making all the bread and Twinkies in China.

No pesky unions there, just good old fashioned slave labor.

Probably because they can't fire the lazy mother fuckers because they can slack as much as they want when 8,000 other people will stand behind them - regardless of their actual work?

Yet there is 20,000 people lined up to take their job - especially for the pay they were getting, hell even min wage plenty of people would line up.

Then eventually those workers would unionize too. You either treat your workers well or you don't.

Take wallmart for instance. All they can do to fight unionization is close stores that try it - which is bad for profits. Wisely Wallmart hires mostly illegals so they keep quiet

Wal-Mart has taken some huge steps in order to deter against unionizing employees, so much that it's scary. I think most of it was covered in a Wal-Mart documentary on Netflix I saw a while ago.

The company tried to hire replacements when the workers striked. They could not fill the positions fast enough.

Contrary to popular belief, not all jobs are immediately fill-able.

You have opposable thumbs, therefore you must be job ready to fill any factory position.

You're a fucking IDIOT. Seriously.

Where is that Walmart union eh? Where are those DISASTER hits to their sales for black friday? Toolbag.

Walmart gets bad rep, but other retailers are in the same basket. The only problem I can truly say is fucked up as far as Walmart goes, is their scheduling. I've heard they have to lookup their hours EVERY DAY because they have no idea how they changed it every day. No consistency, more precisely.Now that I can stand behind and say there should be laws against for basic humanity reasons.

you're a bit blind to all the efforts walmart makes to quash unionization aren't you?

its difficult to form a union if any talk of it gets you promptly fired. a lot of retailers are this way.
