At least Sam's Club is offering either a refund on membership fees or to extend the membership for three months:

So what is wrong with raising wages?  And how many other retail chains have been closing stores around the country?   That's called business and free enterprise.  From the comments apparently some expect them to run a business like a charity organization.  And of course some has to throw in the negative political comments.


Nothing is wrong with raising wages.  Walmat is the largest employer in the United States, makes huge profits, and should have raised wages (and bumped all employees up to full time with benefits) years ago. Instead, they waited until it was all financed by your tax dollars.

CEO Greed cannot be overstated ! Our CEO's were doing just fine making 30 times more than our Blue Collar in 1970 , but they stabbed our Blue Collar in the back during the 70's , 80's and 90's by sending our jobs overseas , Sabotaging Union's, eliminating Pensions and Healthcare. By the year 2000, those same Greedy CEO's were making 400 times more than what was left of our Blue Collar workforce !

 

How can any American with a heart justify this behavior ???


First off, it's not just the CEOs, but ALL of Senior Management that has had their pay skyrocket. And what monumential event happened in the 1980's when the rape of the workers went into high gear?

 

THE REAGAN TAXSCAM.

 

Nothing else changed - the attacks on Unions has been part of the GOP agenda since Ike retired, Globalization was happening since the 1960's when it was Dixiefication and automation has been around since the Luddites.

 

The ONLY way to get workers to receive a fair share of the profits is to make it impossible for the ones who divide the profits to keep everything they give themselves and

 

The ONLY way to do that is to repeal the Reagan Scam and

 

The ONLY way to do that is to get rid of the elected GOPers

   Walmart is using the shiney object progrom.   It is used by most Republican politicians, sadly their followers buy it hook, line, sinker.
