Re: “As City Council Vote Approaches, Walmart and Unions Still Haven't Met

OK IAC I read the blog your referenced and TOTALLY understand why you didn't feel like recapping it; it was pretty long winded. But now I get you! You are obviously a Walmart plant.

There is no way you can convince me that the average blogger interested in the current events of Chicago and wish to have their opinion heard could repeatedly rant and rave... least of all on behalf of America's largest corporation. Who does this?

I have ran into your kind (or you!) before on other blogs & postings. It is tragic that you never directly answer any of the real issues.

I'm not talking about Jewel, Costco, Target, or any other retailer. The simple fact is NONE of them can compare to Walmart... take that how you want to.

The biggest problem with having Walmart is that they are NOT enhancing any community they enter... it's just not the Walmart way IAC.

Re: “As City Council Vote Approaches, Walmart and Unions Still Haven't Met

OK are there ANY people out there that feels that they deserve a Living Wage? What happened to the belief that a person can work 1 job and make ends meet? The kind of jobs that Walmart offer will do absolutely NOTHING to combat unemployment. You can not afford to pay rent let alone a mortgage on a Walmart salary! Keep in mind folks that in the time it took me to type out this post Walmart made more money then 90% of us makes in a year and they can't afford to pay $11.03 per hour?! I can't speak for you but me & mine deserve better! BTW I am not in a union I am a member of the community that actually bothered to look pass the headlines & propaganda put out by Walmart & it's henchmen.
