Thread Name: BS: Bloody WalMart
Subject: RE: BS: Bloody WalMart
Just returned from a week and a half trip (and boy, are my arms tired, etc...), so I'm ketching up. I didn't read each and every post here thoroughly. However, it does appear that no one has yet mentioned the Walmart case of forced labor with denial of overtime pay that is pending against them. Surprised am I that it has not figured in the discussion, what with all the folk music concern for workers and their rights. The other issues are all important (and not quite that simple, BTW). But having to work (to avoid getting fired) and not get paid for a portion of that time is about as basic as issues go, methinks. Won't shop there until the folks I trust give them a white glove inspection (not like the Denny's case where it was "over" until the next time, and then until the next time, yet again).

If anyone cares, yes it is quite nice to be "unplugged" (or should I say "un-wired?") for a spell, even if you miss your fellow 'Catters a wee bit (and I did).
