    I was employed with Walmart and it was the most horrible job I have ever had and I’m 50 years old. That should speak loudly. I have NEVER received an employee write-up until I worked for Walmart. They have their own set of rules so I completely support you ALL.
    The donation I’m sending is from my unemployment so you know I mean it. I don’t have much but I’ll do what I can.

    Wal-Mart is an example of what happens when prices for merchandise are reduced to an artificially low point. In order to achieve profitability, such a company makes up the margin by neglecting its employees basic human needs; denies that issues/problems exist, reduces employee benefits or suspends/revokes them entirely. In conducting their business in such a manner, Wal-Mart and like companies utterly devalue their human workers, without whom the company would cease to function. The most obvious solution is that we must, as a society united, recognize that the expense in producing and retailing products for consumer sale is higher than what we are accustomed to paying but, if a shadow of ethical and moral concern is still present, that is a reality. The factory workers are not simply disposable or expendable, they are feeling, rational, deserving human beings who deserve every shred of reasonable accommodation available.

[...] RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Warehouse workers went on strike to protest unfair labor practices they have faced on the job Wednesday morning, following months of working in hot temperatures under extreme pressure in a major Walmart-contracted warehouse in Southern California. Workers—who do not have a recognized union—walked off the job during the first shift at an NFI warehouse in Mira Loma, California to call for an end to retaliation and unfair labor practices. Workers have been fighting for more than a year for safe working conditions and for Walmart to take responsibility for conditions in the warehouse.
