Re: “Humboldt's Wal-Mart Resistance

Anyone that follows politics knows that the utopians joined the Democrat party and took over. That is, in my opinion, why our politics have become so very stridently left or right. I also understand that some folks will vehemently disagree.

Re: “Humboldt's Wal-Mart Resistance

Alndrea, I was not a GM clerk or Courtesy or Deli. I think the exact initiation was $575. I intentionally did not bring up health care.

I have better benefits by far now and I do not have to pay off a union.

AH, who, if not utopians, killed off all of our local industries?

Re: “Humboldt's Wal-Mart Resistance

Mr Seborne, during my short time at Safeway, I was still collecting partial unemployment, I reported all of my income. Here is how Safeway and the UFCW5 work. Safeway by contract must give you 24 hours. They do not want full time employees. Then the union has a $600 buy in and $55 a month in dues. The union does allow you to pay off your initiation fee on a weekly basis. So your monthly pay off to the union is $115 out of a gross of $840. I am guessing that WalMart will pay about the same. And they are opening a new store so that attrition will be less and the ability to move up will be greater.

I think the primary reason that folks dislike WalMart is that it is politically correct to do so. And because they will not go union.

Re: “Humboldt's Wal-Mart Resistance

Do these protestor types realize that acting out, having tantrums, damages their cause? And that wearing masks that imply that those employed by this company are monkeys, if done by those they oppose would be seen as racially based?

I know that the contractor was around and everyone he was around was happy to see him.

Wal-Mart is the last, best, hope for the mall. It will draw new people to the mall which will, in turn, help the other businesses in the mall.

If we had a functional economy up here, you could say that WalMart might damage it. But the fact is our economy has been destroyed by utopians and Anti-everything types.

I will not be shopping at WalMart, because they are usually designed with narrow aisles and numerous choke points. Not because of some theory that they are evil. Safeway has pretty much the same policies as WalMart and you are forced to join a union as well.

Re: “Teen Beat

"because we believe the youth are our future."

This is one of those silly cliches that drives us to do stupid things.

I hope the young lady learns to write objectively rather than adjectivally, but that is just my writing critique. I remember being young and unexperienced, I hope she has a good and safe time.
