    I've been meaning to watch the "Wal-Mart: The High Cost Of Low Price" documentary.

    88 workers from 28 stores. Is that from each store or in total? If it's only in total that's around 3 people a store.

    That's 88 total...not 88 from each store. I'm sure plenty of organizations and people will be touting this as a moral victory or something to that effect, but unless they organize this and have substantial participation nationwide, this isn't going to do anything.

    With the economy the way it is, there are probably a dozen people willing to step in and take the job of each of the people who walked off.

    That is not enough people to make even the smallest impact on Wal-Mart

    Those people will be fired. 3 people from each store? Goodbye.

    But if Wal-Mart workers strike, who will deliver terrible customer service?

    They'll just all have to try a little less to make up for it.

    I didn't even know people worked at walmart. I thought it was all fat people in scooters.

    Hey, that's not fair!

    Someone has to make sure no one steals everything.

    Well, when all your cashiers hover around the area with the self-checkouts (ie one tiny part of the front of the store)...

    I like to think K-mart is Wal-mart's bankrupt little *****. And is bringing Sears down with it, granted they do have a deal with WWE and Sofia Vergea(sp?) from Modern Family, so not all hope is lo--lololol, who am I kidding, K-mart sucks.

    The only reason I like Kmart is because they sometimes have old stock. I often look for older video games that aren't sold at other retailers & I've found a few at them.

    Wal-Mart, McDonald's and the likes are not places for strikes, unions and such things. They have been jobs for students (besides store managers, regional managers, ect...). Can you have and be proud of a career in a Wal-Mart in the toilet paper section?
    I'm sorry but - in this case - YAY FOR THE BIG EVIL CORPORATION.
