Walmart hasn’t been shy about defending itself in the face of union-backed protests and threats of Black Friday walkouts. Today the retailer tweeted that fewer than 50 of its 1.3 million employees actually walked off the job and called reports of protests “grossly exaggerated.” Walmart also reported brisk sales, which prompted actress Mia Farrow to demand that the store “cough it up” and pay workers a decent wage. It seems Walmart isn’t about to be intimidated by unions or Hollywood.

Actually, that was Walmart’s stock response to a number of tweeters, including groups such as Occupy Austin and Change Walmart. But as long as we have Farrow’s attention …

        • JustLikeAnimals

          I suspect this is the case in most every store. As this OP says, this is more about the union using a calculator and surmising that 1,400,000 employees X $25 per paycheck ever two weeks = some serious money they can use to buy lavish homes, cars, boats, and votes.

          • No Longer Amazed

            Yep, it’s kinda like a little Union Tax. And their enforcers are even meaner and nastier than ZerO’s IRS enforcers – although both break legs.

      Exactly. Last time I looked, no one at WallyWorld was chained to a cash register, merchandise shelf, or customer service counter. Fact is the average WW emp. make about $8.55/hr, Those with more than 5 years service are in the $11.00-$14.00/hr range. Well above federal minimum wage for doing a menial job. But as this poster said, nothing precludes them from leaving if they want.

      There are 23 million unemployed American who can do your job and would probably like a crack at it.

        The hourly wage doesn’t help matters if you are only getting 20 hours a week. If 23 million people out of work would like that job, why aren’t they applying?

          A job at wal mart or target is not meant to be a head of household job. It is a low skilled job, learn a trade to move forward.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            Someone has to work there. They employ 1.3 million workers. And you don’t want illegal aliens working there. Remember? Walmart hired thousands of them to clean their stores? So that they could pay them even less than they paid the other workers? Remember?

        • Teresa Davis McCormick

          have you talked to several employees of walmart to get your opinion? how bout even one. Michael, do your homework. Very few dept store jobs give the majority full time employment. Meijers and kmart employees make similar wages and have the same hours. The reason you are hearing about wal mart is because they are non union. Do some research into the history of unions in America.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            Actually, a google search shows that Target has had it’s share of the same woes. This summer. They are accused of union busting.

            Not true. They are getting 20 hours a week because the owners refuse to accept less profit. The owners refuse to offer health care to their employees. It’s an old trick.

    One week after a union shut down Hostess, why are we even having this discussion?

    • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      Hostess was in bankruptcy already. The management team gave themselves huge doubling raises during the restructuring. That is what killed Hostess. Please stop lying.

      • No Longer Amazed

        Check your facts again…

        • Hello Jerry (D)

      • KansasGirl

        Union bosses are what killed Hostess.
        Notice they’ve still got jobs.

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          Actually it was the top management who gave themselves huge raises. One from over 350K a year to over 900K. The rest at least doubled their salaries while they were preparing to enter bankruptcy. They ruined the company. Not the workers who combined made less that those 9 executives.

    • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      Hostess was in bankruptcy already. The management team gave themselves huge doubling raises during the restructuring. That is what killed Hostess. Please stop lying.

    • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

      You’re correct, nc. Ignore Hamster. He’s a dimwitted Liberophrenic who thinks unions are awesome and that jobs are easy to come by. People should be thankful they have a job at all in this economy, forget sour grapes for management raises. It’s better to stick with that job than to be jobless and making no money, but they were gullible and listened to the union. Typical Liberal mindset.

      • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

        I never said I support the union. I just don’t like to see blatant lies in print. Hostess was already in bankruptcy when the union chose to strike. The managers did double and triple their salaries. They were cutting hours for low wage employes while giving themselves huge bonuses. Here:

        “As the company was preparing to file for bankruptcy earlier this year,
        the then CEO of Hostess was awarded a 300 percent raise (from
        approximately $750,000 to $2,550,000) and at least nine other top
        executives of the company received massive pay raises. One such
        executive received a pay increase from $500,000 to $900,000 and another
        received one taking his salary from $375,000 to $656,256.”

        So AS they were preparing to go into bankruptcy protection, (A BAILOUT) they decided to take as much money as they could.

        Now go ahead and defend that.

        • KansasGirl

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          Again, at this point in her career, I doubt she has any of those type employees. Here is a quote.

          Farrow, meanwhile, largely gave up acting to focus on her humanitarian
          work, with a special interest in the war-torn regions of Africa. In
          2000, she became one of UNICEF’s most prominent ambassadors; in 2008, with a Wall Street Journal op-ed co-authored by her son Ronan, she got Steven Spielberg to step down from the advisory board for the Olympics in Beijing over human-rights abuses.

          She has many adopted adult age children who I am sure help her if she needs it. She has fourteen children, 10 of whom are adopted and many of those are special needs children.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            how much money does the government give her for each of those adult special needs children. I hope someone is monitoring them because from her track record, I find her parenting suspect. Also according to you she’s so busy with her “charity work” she’s prob got a huge staff to deal with all her special needs adults. It’s chilling to think that maybe they can’t speak for themselves.

            Actually, the rich typically pay much lower taxes. I am taxed at a 30% rate. I make between 50 and 150. Mittens made millions of dollars last year and only paid 13%. How is that his ‘fair share’?

          • Barryfromkenya

            You’re not taxed at 30% -#ignorant

            that was a capital gains tax. You know what that is don’t you? Obama keeps trying to raise the tax on capital gains but he prob won’t be able to because it would piss of those Hollyweird Millionaires who invest all their money in stocks and bonds.

            10% on taxable income from $0 to $8,700, plus
            15% on taxable income over $8,700 to $35,350, plus
            25% on taxable income over $35,350 to $85,650, plus
            28% on taxable income over $85,650 to $178,650, plus
            33% on taxable income over $178,650 to $388,350, plus
            35% on taxable income over $388,350.

            It’s public info, Mikey, do your homework. I can’t believe you didn’t know this. You know spouting off stuff you don’t know as fact may work for the big dem politicians but in this forum, you should learn something first.

            B. Please define “fair share”. I hear that A LOT, but NO ONE is able to tell me exactly how much is a “fair share”. Can you tell me what fair is, and then set that into law? And when you have decided what is “fair”, can you tell everyone else what they have to pay? Would you consider that fair as well–telling people what they have to pay?
            C. Just because you get taxed at 30% (which I highly doubt), this doesn’t mean your final tax is higher than Mitt Romney’s. I’m sure if you did the math, you’ll see that even at 13%, Romney still pays out a higher tax than you.

    My father in law works at Wal-Mart and absolutely loves it. He’s over 60 and is responsible for several aisles. He works hard but looks forward to every day he goes in. It seems in his store a lot of the dissatisfaction and complaints are with the younger employees who, according to him, “seem like they’re pissed that they even have to work.” I don’t know about that, but he loves it there.

    • $23629333

      Emjay, I hate to say it, but – thanks to today’s “I-breathe-therefore-I’m-entitled attitude” – most young people and many not-so-young people are useless. If you hire such a person, you will have someone who feels he or she has earned his or her salary simply because he or she showed up to work. Of course, he or she very likely will not show up to work on time – or at least not regularly.

      Such a person will not be conscientious in following instructions, nor considerate in dealing with customers, or fellow employees and supervisors. Such a person will not respond well to criticism. As stated above, he or she believes it’s enough that he or she has showed up.

      At some point – if not from the very beginning – such a person, with his or her nose out of joint, will begin an escalating campaign of sabotage against his or her employer.

      If I were starting out today, I would not invest my time, effort and money in beginning a business, and having to employ such people as described above.

        I know a young couple that answer that description, WhileRomeBurns. They both eventually got out of the labor force, went on all the government give-aways, and are presently being paid to go to college online. When growing up, the young lady was allowed to smart off at her single-parent father, “I AM helping! I’m staying out of your way!” Her husband was the spawn of wealthy parents who handed him everything and required nothing.

        Just pointing out that the young people with the entitlement attitude learned it at home. Needless to say, they’re both staunch Democrats. Both sets of parents are conservatives and are totally bewildered as to how their kids ended up that way. I could take a wild guess….

    How about this one? There are 23 million people out of work. Anyone not happy with the job feel free to quit and watch how quickly the jobs get filled.

    In my part of the world, the starting wage at Walmart is the minimum wage. The starting wage is the same at the competing retailers.

    The employees at Walmart do not have a union. The employees at many of the competing retailers do. Guess what that means?

    Imagine, you’ve just started working at one of the retailers with a union. You will not actually BELONG to that union for 90 days, but you will pay union dues – right from day one – from your minimum-wage salary. Your take-home pay will be less than that of the person newly hired at Walmart.

    Better yet, a large percentage of new employees – at Walmart and the other retailers – do not last 90 days. That means – in the case of the new employees who do not last 90 days in the unionized stores – that the unions will be receiving dues from employees who never enjoyed any of the benefits of union membership.

    What are the chances we’ll see a law which requires that union dues be paid only AFTER someone has actually become a member of the union?

    Anticipated protests at Wal-Marts in Panama City (FL.) area (Calloway and Lynn Haven), fortunately there were none! BTW Florida is a “Right-to-work” state, so people who get jobs work, or they get fired! Jawamax 8<{D}

      Yeah… I’m in Florida and our local news covered the “protest” here by showing footage of 100’s of people demonstrating (somewhere!), but there were actually only 6 people… and when questioned, NONE of them actually worked for Wal-Mart or had ever worked there!

    Another totally insignificant, pathetic celebrity who actually thinks anyone cares about her or her miserable opinions. Out of touch doesn’t even begin to describe 99% of the likes of her. Isn’t it interesting that those who make the least money in this country are the most generous? Most celebs sadly have very little purpose in their lives except for their need to stroke their own egos and “pretend” to care for the common folk.

  • irishgirl91

    I am POSITIVE her help has full retirement, health and well above living wage right? They get set schedules that never change and she has never treated them as anything but equals. The one and only beef I have with Walmart is their policy of ‘lock ins’ without having a mgr. on premises with a key. Employers have the responsibility to provide a safe work environment and compensation for work, that is it. Everything else is gravy and dependent on the market.

      All their building have emergency exits that are never chained, that are alarmed, and open from the inside only via a push bar. All buildings except for really ancient ones have these, that’s what building codes are for, OSHA, etc. Which is all more than Miss Mia has ever concerned herself with.

    I’d like to see everyone in hollow-wood reserve for themselves exactly the hourly wage they want everyone else to have, then re-distribute the rest of their income to Wal-Mart employees so their wages are equal to what hollow-wood thinks they should be.

    The math should be simply enough that even an actress can figure it out. Want to give everyone at Wal-Mart a $5/hour raise. No problem. just pony up from your lavish lifestyle the sum of 1,400,000 x $5 = $6,000,000………PER HOUR x 2080 hours in the average 40 hour per week work-year = $12,480,000,000. That $12.48 BILLION per year.

    So come on Hollow-Wood! Fork it over. Oh, what’s that?? You want Wal-Mart to finance that themselves??? Ever hear of Hostess? Want Wal-Mart customers to foot the bill in higher prices? Ok. Now we have to extrapolate the number of customers who will no longer shop at at Wal-Mart, the amount of merchandise that Wal-Mart will no longer sell and, subsequently, the number of employees (Yeah, you remember? The ones you were trying to “help?”) whom Wal-Mart will longer need to employ because of the business downturn. HEY!!!!! Hollow-Wood!!!! And the rest of you libs who don’t seems to know a piss-pot’s worth about how a business works!!!!! Are you starting to get the picture??????

    Hollow-Wood needs to recognize a stark reality: The public does not, nor has it ever, admired you because of your genius intellect or your ability to solve complex social, economic, or political problems. You are society’s clowns. You entertain us. So put on some make-up, some rainbow hair, a red nose, and some big floppy shoes, and STFU!!!!!!

    Dance clowns! Dance!!!!

    They get paid based on their skill level. Plain and simple. $8.00 to $13.00 an hour is more than enough.
    Farrow, donate some of your money to needy Walmart employees then! No? Figures.

  • calitexi

    We love Walmart. We live out in the country and other than Albertson’s, Walmart is our only other store within about 10 miles. The employees know what they are getting into when they apply there. If they don’t like it find a job at McDonald’s or something else.

  • Rodney Brungardt

    I just don’t understand why the liberal left have a problem with Wal Mart. It is capitalism at it’s finest. Sam Walton started small, gave his customers what they wanted and was able to build his dream into what it is today. That is how capitalism works. DUH, I just realized, they don’t like capitalism and hate when someone is successful.
    It must be Obama’s policy of punishing success and reward failure and laziness!!!

    Walmart gives pretty good bonuses once or twice a year.For most people, probably came out around an extra .50 cents per hour if it was split over the entire year.

    • Yomama

      Remember back in the 1990’s when Wal-Mart had employees who became millionaires because of the Wal-Mart stocks they’d been buying from each paycheck? I personally know a woman who is one of those millionaires… and she still works at Wal-Mart and loves it.

    Funny thing is, Walmart falls squarely middle of the road for wages in their business segment. Stocking shelves, & running a cash register is entry level work, meant for teenagers, & others who are just starting out. you are suppost to gain new skills & knowlege to qualify for higher paying jobs, Walmarts skilled positions pay well. their transportation division has some of the highest pay in trucking, of course their standards are very high, they demand quality people. as for Mia, she has no idea what the real world is like as she lives in the Hollywierd fantasy world.

    Estimated # of actual Walmart workers that missed their shift on Black Friday: 60
    We’ll be nice and round up to 100.

    Estimated # of actual Walmart workers: 1.3 million
    We’ll be nice and round down to 1 million, even though we know almost everyone works Black Friday in retail…. really… EVERYONE.

    100 out of 1,000,000 = 0.0001

    That means, estimating up GENEROUSLY, 0.01 percent of Walmart employees actually MIGHT have been striking on Black Friday. I say *might* because some of them might have missed their shift due to illness or family emergency.

    That’s 1 out of every 10,000 people. Maybe.

    That’s not union support in any kind of interpretation.
    People are stupid.
