If that's not bad enough most of them are being slowly changed to part time employees (less then 30 hours a week). They will all be part time by time the employer mandate kicks in. So why complain now when your messiah is making it worse on them?
Take time and read the article. The issue is -living wage vs minimum wage. This issue isn't worth discussion with someone like you. The Messiah tells me -that it is better to keep your mouth shout than argue with a f###. You can find that in the true Messiah book of life.
it's funny the liberals want to call out walmart, even though they pay more then other like businesses. why is no one complains that the restaurant workers still haven't seen a increase in their wages? when minium wage was 3.25 a hr, wait staff pay was 2.13 a hr. now that minium is 7.25, wait staff is still 2.13 a hr.
Also - it is rarely mentioned that Walmart employs 2.2 million people world-wide, and it consistently ranks in the top 10 in total donations to charity by corporations as a percentage of income. Most of the negative press over the years has cited the impact of Walmart on local "mom and pop" small businesses, but studies between 1990 and 2005 conclude an overall positive impact by Walmart on the small business sector. See:
Further, Wal-Mart is the largest employer in the United States, employing almost five times as many people as IBM, the second largest employer in the U.S. As such, this makes them an easy target for issues related to its workforce. However, those of us who were alive and shopping before Walmart came into existence can recall that high prices, poor working conditions, low wages and FEW CHOICES were a common complaint about the "department stores" and "five and dimes" that Walmart has generally displaced over the years.
While it does seem odd that an employer would be facilitating assistance to their employees by encouraging "donations to the needy" rather than just upping their wages, I'll point out that Walmart - just like every other business - is IN business to make a profit. They are not a charity or welfare organization. They constantly have to be aware of the bottom line and can not afford to overpay for employment services. To do so would not only screw up Walmart's bottom line, but - since Walmart is the largest employer in the country - would also skew wages throughout the entire retail services industry.
As for food stamps, from their policies the Obama administration appears to want EVERYBODY IN THIS COUNTRY TO BE ENROLLED IN THE PROGRAM. Soooooooo:
Let's everybody double the minimum wage, put everybody on food stamps, and jam universal health care down the throats of everybody. Then we'll achieve the real goal of the Democrats - a single class society. Then we won't have the rich, the poor and the in-betweens. We'll just have the HAVE-NOTS.
with the changes in preparing for the employer mandate, Kelly services is now the second largest employer in the USA. sad days ahead.
