Walmart Inc Files Charges Against Protesters??


#1

Lol. The nerve. This is America!

Wal-Mart Stores Inc is taking its first legal step to stop months of protests and rallies outside Walmart stores, targeting the union that it says is behind such actions.

Wal-Mart filed an unfair labor practice charge against the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, or UFCW, asking the National Labor Relations Board to halt what the retailer says are unlawful attempts to disrupt its business.

The move comes just a week before what is expected to be the largest organized action against the world’s largest retailer, as a small group of Walmart workers prepare to strike on Black Friday, typically the busiest shopping day of the year.

It’s private property you know, so they are well within their legal rights to tell the protesters to take a hike.

IF an angry, chanting crowd showed up on my property as a focus of their hate, I would protect my family and property accordingly.

Let 'em strike. plummeting holiday sales will look horrible in the jobs market, stocks will fall, and this country will get closer to what it really needs, a reality check.

Liberals/socialists/communists/marxists do not recognize or even understand the concept of private property and the rights that associated with it.

If the country didn’t wake up on November 8, what makes you think they will wake up now?

Then might I suggest they pay their union dues first, 'cuz they’re gonna need another job.
:rofl:

Well, unless this union failed to “do their part” to reelect Obama, Walmart’s chances in this suit are Slim and None: Slim left town and None is hiding in a convent! Now, if Barack and/or Michelle have a taste for Hostess or Dolly Madison snacks and Walmart has a stash …

A fellow in our church works at Walmart (part time, retired from his regular job). Fortunately for him, he doesn’t have to go to work until afternoon on Friday, when the protesters are more likely to be all done.

[/quote]I was at Walmart today and they were busy but I did not see any sales going on. I was looking at the shirts because I ruined one the other day with insulating foam and for Walmart the prices were outrageous. It looked more like I would see at Sears.
