I love stock options.

"We want to help you give some of your paycheck back to us!"

It still sucks D.
What if the companies lets say are matching your stock input by a certain percentage, not that that is a Walmart option Tongue

Uhh...actually it is and Walmart does for all of its employees.  From the cart pusher to the CEO Walmart will match 15% of all stock its employees buy.  That is an amazing deal and considering you can buy pretty much everything at Walmart and employees get 10% off on all goods (except junk food), and all take part in a quarterly (for hourly) or yearly (for salaried) bonus, you can make quite a good life working at Walmart.  And no, I dont work at Walmart, but I do admire their capitalistic success.  Walmart actually has stopped expanding for the most part, they are now working pretty much exclusively on building up their current stores. 

As for the workers comp case...uhh, Walmart didnt injur the employee a 3rd party did.  They gave her the money to take care of her, and when she sued for damages against the 3rd party and won, she was legally obligated to pay back the money Walmart gave her.  Sue on paper?  Thats a new one...Im suing you, you owe us 1 million, but you dont have to give it back...What does a son dying in Iraq have to do with anything?  So her son died in Iraq so Walmart has to give her 1 million dollars?  Thats absurd.  Her situation is sad and unfortunate, but to fault Walmart which actually asked for about half of what they were owed, is just wrong.

Again if you dont like Walmart you must not shop at any retailer, because they have all copied Walmarts business plan.  You are criticizing a compnay that takes back pretty much any item for any reason, that gives more money to charity per dollar earned than pretty much any major corporation and 75% of all its hirings are promotions from within...its absurd.

Oh and its pretty easy to tell when someone uses a thesaurus...they use words with literal meanings that actually in context mean something else.

Though, I could be wrong, I call bullshit! It is probably more like 5% of earnings ... max! If your senario is correct, then I think that I will get a job there, and then invest most of my savings. See...

I am in no way defending Walmart, but what is the difference between Home Depot coming to your town and putting mr mcdaniels hardware store out of business who  has serviced your town with all of your gardening needs for the last 40 years. You know the good ol local hometown family business. This is something that has been slowly happening over time, bigger chains take over eventually. I do understand that Walmart is somewhat different in their business stratagies and alot of us don't appreciate the route they have chosen , but for gods sake no one is making these people work for them. R the people who work for them sitting behind their cash register with a ball and chain around their ankles, not hardly.

Building supply stores are essential, whereas Wal-Marts really aren't.

I'm satisfied with that answer, your right the world could still get by without them, but, it does help alot of less fortunate or lower income families. Idk it all just seams like one big vicious circle, I have never really looked into the Walmart situation to closely, what I know is only what I have read or heard, never really chased facts, guess I don't know what I think. Huh Roll Eyes Undecided

The difference is that it is happening in EVERY town in America.

Nope, they are working for an industry that has destroyed "small town" America while making, right at, minimum wage. Want health care ... hahahaha.

You can get 120 of the most popular prescriptions available, and easiest to manufacture, for $10. but if you need something else ... FUCK YOU!!!

I understand this just a little more now. Your kinda basically saying Walmart came in took away the smaller stores that offered better wages and benefits for it's employees, basically leaving them no other job options in their community in regards to retail so to speak.
