wal-mart..what are the good things of it

well i can tell u some of the bad things

1. (the take over)

when a wal-mar movies in to a small or medium town
it drives other store owners out of buisness...
first they take money from them for building roads and laying pipe lines so a wal-mart can come in town..taxes...all of us work pay em
another problem it creates is it drives down property value
so when some one does lose their store and needs to sell off the building they own the price will be around 25% lower then what they payed for

2. (do more for less)

employees are cheated out of hours all the time
they are forced to work over time hours off the clock for no pay in fear of being fired
a manger will trick them.. they will take their over time and throw it on to the next pay time so no matter what they only get 40 hrs a week..

3. (women)

they are worthless..alot of women who have worked for them dont get promoted and or women who work their will clean the bathrooms cuz ...thats "a woman's job"

4. (health pay)

the big prob..........

who pays for wal-marts employees health/ benefits

.......we do........

out of every state with a wal-mart.. multi amount of peeps have to seek other help for heath needs

what wal-mart said to them ...go on welfare

so every year we pay wal-mart over a billion $ so their staff can go to the doctors if needed


watch the clip above u will see more then what i have said



what is ur say in all of this,........

I used to work at a Walmart back in high school. I remember on school nights, I wanted to get right home after work. It was time for me to leave for the night, and I had my department all fronted(faced), and was ready to check out. Though, the front doors were locked from the inside. lol One of the people in charge told me that I wasn't allowed to leave until every department in the store was finished their fronting of items. I eventually ended up quitting cause I was getting tired of having to wait around so long, and getting home so late on the school nights.

I remember a few years back, that Walmart got in trouble, cause a worker got injured bad in the store, and the doors were locked from the inside. Nobody in charge that night had the keys with them to open the doors, so they had to wait until a worker they called, could get to the store.

And back to the thread, how many Walmart stores do people need? If there is a Walmart store in one town, do they really need to build another Walmart store in the neighboring town, which is only like ten minutes away? They are building another Super Walmart nearby to me. Walmart bought out a small pizza place, that was in business for like 37 years. The owners lived above the pizza place. Some of my relatives had been going to that pizza place since the 70's. And it's not just Walmart building way too many stores around my way. Do you need a CVS drug store on like every single road? How many Wawa convenience stores do you need in one town? They are putting all the smaller gas stations out of business. Do you need 100 different banks in one town?

Thanks for the video. I'm not in the US so I didn't really know much beyond people complaining about them and the hilarious South Park episode. After seeing that, I can see that South Park was pretty much spot-on (in it's completely over the top style) as usual!

That was a harrowing watch at times!

The dude sent to make sure that the Chinese plants were up to scratch with human rights and all that and was talking about how he was crying on the phone to his wife the first night, her reassuring him that he'd fix it all, only to be fired for telling 'em about it all.

The family-run supermarket that were not ordering more inventory so that they could pay their employess as they were going out of business.

...Yeah, well worth a watch.

Do people think that Walmart started changing once their owner died in like 1992? Cause it seems like they are going against a bunch of things that the original owner set forth.

I don't by cheap wal-mart t-shirts unless they're for work.

It's good to know people in other countries are making some bank. Two dollars stretches a long way in other countries.

My taxes pay off their staff? Your taxes pay for my health care too! I get my health care from the indian health services.

I was watching the video when I made that comment, and i'm still not changing a thing.

These people choose to work for these sweat shops. Yeah, I agree these slave like conditions are fucked up, but they have a choice, they always have a choice.

It's not like sombody's cracking a whip behind them, that video just shows a bunch of disgruntled employees. The problem isn't wal-mart exploiting people, the problem is the government that allows large companies to exploit it's people. And if you get right down to it, it's the people that empower the government.

I know for a fact that Wal-Mart pays some of it's employees more than the water operators here, and that says a lot about our tribal government.

All of the smaller mom and pop buisness don't nessicarily give back to their respective communities either. If they did, people would probably shop their instead of Wal-Mart more often. Or maybe people are just tired of mom and pop stores holding a monoply on their products in these small communities, and now these buisness owners are upset because Wal-Mart is giving the same product for cheaper. If ma and pop store want to compete they gotta cut some of their profits.

It's called buying power. Wal-Mart is able to negotiate their prices they pay for shit in ways that a mom and pop never could. If they tried to sale the same thing that Wal-Mart does at the same price they'd most likely go out of business.

I don't agree with the Ceo, why do you keep implying that. I'm just stating the facts.

That whole video was propaganda from disgruntled employees.

You talk about Wal-Mart like it's some big boogey man. Wal-Mart is just a name of an organization ran and supported by people just like me and you.

If you want to point fingers start pointing them at yourself.

The people that build, run, operate, clean, and support these stores through sales are people like you and me.

If you don't like what Wal-mart is doing to other countries than buy american made products.

The only reason Wal-Mart succeeds is becuase people like their services. Unless someone is offering it for cheaper I will continue to buy house wares, groceries and whatever else I might need. It might bring down your community, but my community is in dire need of a Wal-mart becuase we don't have any ma and pa type shops here. I gotta drive 75 miles to reach the nearest Wal-Mart. I ain't got the budget to be paying extra on some bullshit when I need gas.

100 Proof,
The same thing happened to me when I worked at Walmart, as I stated earlier in the thread. I was like 16 at the time I worked there. It was against the law for me to work past a certain time of night, as I was in school. I was done fronting my department, and it was time for me to leave for the night. But they lock the doors from the inside, for some stupid reason, like it's a cage. I had to wait for a long time until all the departments were done fronting. There was a case a few years back where an employee got seriously injured while working, and nobody had a key to get him out of the store to a hospital.

And they are still building a lot of Walmarts, at least around my area. Last year, they built a Super Walmart, within 15 minutes or so from me. Now they are planning on building another Super Walmart, about 10 minutes in the opposite direction from me. Plus, they have been talking about expanding the regular Walmart in my town, into a Super Walmart. This would most likely put the grocery store in that shopping center out of business, and probably a bunch of other stores. So Walmart might be the only store left there, and a bunch of overweight redneck women can rush around the store with their shopping carts.

Nobody forced your mom. Your mom made a choice.

If anything, shopping at Wal-Mart was supporting your mom's because if people didn't shop at Wal-Mart your mom's couldn't get paid.

I have family that worked at Wal-Mart too, and I never heard them complaining.


Wal-Mart isn't banned here, they're always trying to build bigger facilities in this state. A Wal-Mart in my community would mean more jobs.

It's called a door.

Break it. Smash it.

If that doesn't work, it's called a phone.

Use it.

Family- it's somthing that worries about you when you don't come home.

Use it.

And if all that fails, there's these people called lawyers.

Utilize them.

No I get it. Wal-Mart rubbed you family the wrong way, so your taking it out on this thread.

Completley understandable.

But these people have a choice, they always have choice. Wal-mart isn't oppressing anybody that doesn't want to be oppressed. Maybe people need this wake up call, and that's good. But Wal-mart isn't the bad guy.

To be fair 100 proof:

I was listening to Birth of the Prince this morning and Rza says somthing in that album that made me think of this discussion.

He mentions somthing about freeing us from this modern day form of slavery, and think that's what you were pointing out when you made this thread.

And even though people always have choices, somtimes the choices aren't that great and their forced to work for people like this lee Scott ass hole.
