Beautiful! There is even more Strikesgiving fail. As Twitchy reported, the Walmart Black Friday walkout organized by union thugs was a total bust. It was estimated that a mammoth fifty employees joined the walkout. Perhaps these Twitter users can help the clueless thugs understand why that was. You see, they love their jobs and are grateful to be employed by Walmart.

Those monsters!

And, if there are any Walmart employees who aren’t so grateful, there are plenty of people waiting in the wings to join #TeamWalmart.

We hope you do, too!

    I’ve been in retail 22yrs, you work holidays, everyone with half a brain knows that . My husband’s a pastor, he works holidays too! I should suggest he goes on strike 😀

      If it’s a Southern Baptist, Pentecostal, or something resembling that kind of church then I suggest your husband do so as well.

        wow, really? tolerant much?

        • TomJB

          As tolerant as a troll from the “more caring, sensitive, open-minded and tolerant” party *headtilt* can be!

      Amen! And, lots of people work holidays: Doctors, Nurses, EMTs, CNAs, Police, Air Traffic Controllers, and the list goes on and on. Holidays are a must for several professions.

      One of my first jobs was working in a stable in charge of caring for 3 horses. There was no day off EVER. Christmas, Saturday, Sunday, SICK Days, no days off. The racehorses got days off, not me.

      i have spoken to people who said that they had their thanksgiving on the day before or after the actual holiday because of various family situations. in other words, some people may sign up to work on thanksgiving because they aren’t getting together with family on the actual holiday. i’m not saying this is the case of the walmart workers who worked on thanksgiving, just that there may be more than meets the eye in regards to them working on thanksgiving day.

      • redheadgrl

        A lot of people get extra pay for working the holiday hours, so they celebrate earlier or later.

        • http://www.facebook.com/brett.mcmicken Brett McMicken

          yep! and, they have to break up family time to spend it with in-laws so it has to done by their schedule.

      • Mary123s

        my hubby and i were planning to do that – his job is cable installation – but they called to cancel that day’s work so we had a “proper” Thxgvg holiday

    • EastValleyConservative

      I did for over 15 years, and later for Wal-Mart Home Office. Most of us didn’t escape the working world without having to work some undesirable schedules. A lot of people complain about Wal-Mart, but they have employees that stick with the job for decades. They do provide an avenue to move up and do more. When I was with the home office, they had some of the best insurance around, and your contribution to it was minimal.

      • Bridgett Cash

        When you are uneducated Walmart is your life-long career.

        • EastValleyConservative

          I never worked at a Wal-Mart store in my life with the exception of working as an outside vendor later on with WM stores in my territory. Granted, many of them are uneducated, but they stick with the job–and working is better than not working. I don’t question why they love their jobs, I personally wouldn’t be able to stand it. I am a Marketing Director for a company.

        • Guest

          Wow. In this economy, you went there? There are many who are supremely educated but can’t get jobs. And you … went there? What about the sixty-year-old Veteran? What about a returning Veteran? You think ONLY the uneducated would choose to work in a long time career at Wal-Mart? Fail. Epic Fail on your part.

        • http://www.righthook38.com righthook38

          Bridgett, not cool. There are a lot of people out of work, with a good education, who can’t find work and are happy to work at Wal-mart, so they can pay the bills. In ’08, my company downsized from 450 to 30 people over the course of 6 months, and people who were making $100,000+ were forced to take jobs making $10/hr. Many have recovered, but some have not. As long as Obama is in office, things won’t get any better.

    • orringtonmom (D)

      i’ve done the retail thing during the holidays and you’re right… they need people to work and it’s a given that you’ll be expected to do so. but in almost all my experiences, employers tried to make it up to those who worked by paying time/half, give extra days off later, or provide meals and/or something extra to get us through the day. usually all of the above.

    • Bridgett Cash

      I suggest your husband’s church pay their fair share in taxes. Why am I paying for your food stamps and health care? Because Walmart won’t do it for you.

    • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

      That is an excellent point!

      Not according to the atheist on O’Reilly yesterday. Don’t you know that 99% of Americans are forced to take the day off on Christmas? What a moron….

  • OurLivesMatterToo

    No surprise here. The workers I’ve encountered at Wal Mart are always kind and sincere about wanting to help you with something. Not something you can fake – like working at the DMV!

  • Hiraghm

    I’ve been blabbering on about how good Wal-Mart is for employees, here and on MichelleMalkin.com.

    Where you been?

    I really, really need to go Galt, politically…

  • Michelle

    The unions so desperately want in at Walmart because and only because 1.3 million workers paying $30/per month in union dues = $468,000,000 annual income for the unions.

    • http://twitter.com/yahneverknowCB yahneverknow

      Don’t forget their currently-severely-underfunded pensions that would again become underfunded by the time newer/younger workers need it.

      It’s a unionized ponzi scheme.

    • lainer51

      You are EXACTLY right… I worked at a very LARGE package delivery service and their union extorted money from us monthly, and in my case, for 30 years.. Great job and paid well so I was glad to work there, but sure do wish I had that money in MY bank account instead of the unions, but that’s life.

    • redheadgrl

      When I was 17, I worked at Lionel Playworld making minimum wage. The union was all over me and my friends to join — We worked about 12 hours a week at $5 an hour. I said no, of course. Crazy that they recruit the part-timers just to get those unions dues.

  • annoyinglittletwerp

    I love working as a produce clerk @ my west Texas Wal-Mart. I’ve been there since May, 2011 and have been treated well. *We were given a CATERED meal on Thanksgiving+my bonus on next week’s paycheck will be around $300.00. I get 31 hours per week…so that’s a huge bonus for a PART-timer!*

    • redheadgrl

      Bonus?!? What’s a bonus? I haven’t seen one of those for about 8 years. Good on you!

      • annoyinglittletwerp

        Your bonus is based on how well your store does. Full-timers get the most and then it goes down from there-based on your average hours for the 12 weeks prior to the end of the bonus period. My store ALWAYS gets the highest bonuses for our area. Some stores won’t get a bonus. Wal-Mart’s a good gig,

        • redheadgrl

          I’m not in retail, but have been salary + bonus for the past 5 years. Guess what? No one got a bonus. Glad for you that you get one this year!

  • lainer51

    Fat Boy Schultz is ALWAYS on the wrong side of the issues – that is what makes him feel good about himself.. Too bad nobody watches his show though..

  • Meshell

    I have worked in health care for over 20 years as a CNA, RN and now as a nurse practitioner- I have worked holidays, nights, weekends, been on call and missed dinners, parties, plays, games and recitals because I got called into work or couldn’t get off. My dad was a fire fighter while I was growing up. I can’t even count the years that we had Christmas or thanksgiving dinner at the fire station and there were a few years that he was called out during the middle of dinner. My sympathy for those complaining about having to work Thanksgiving evening is zip/zero/zilch. Get over it – if you don’t like it find another job- there are many who would be grateful just to have a job. Stop your complaining you whiner and get a life. Boo hoo- you had to work thanksgiving night- SO WHAT!!!!! Be grateful for what you have!

    • TomJB

      2 thanksgivings and 2 christmases thus far deployed (both in Iraq) another of each in Korea. Making FAR less than minimum wage if you break down the salary on the 24/7/365 deployments where a “day off” really isnt. No complaints.

      • Mary123s

        thank you for defending our country :) esp with such a “salary”

        • Lady 12

          Seconded.

        • Lady 12

          Seconded.

      • Meshell

        TomJB- I thank you for your service and sacrifice to keep our country safe. I in no way consider the holidays, weekends and nights that I have had to work as a health care provider in any way comparative to what you and your family have given up. You have my admiration and I will be forever thankful for your service to this great nation of ours. God bless you and your family and may he keep you safe.

  • Mary123s

    if I didn’t have back problems, I would consider a p/t job as cashier. Did it for 10 years. Boring, but it was a job. Have a friend who works at WM and loves it :) so happy for her.

  • Pisio808

    When Obama was elected in 2008 I lost my job at a non-profit. I took a job making $8.00 an hour at WalMart. Within 18 months I had worked my way up to an hourly Instock Supervisor making $13.00 an hour (only 50 cents less an hour than I was making at the non profit, but with 10 more hours a week and full benefits for my family). I was never so thankful for a job in my life… Since then I have moved on back to something I had done my entire life that is much better for my family, but I would go back to WalMart in a heartbeat if they would take me and I needed work.

  • Bridgett Cash

    Some of you can’t even spell. No wonder you LOVE your Walmart job so much.

    • http://www.righthook38.com righthook38

      Wow. Angry much? Why so rude?

  • Stammon

    My wife’s dad was a minister. Never a day off on a holiday. Now, in the steel mill, I take advantage of that with fire watch and overtime.

  • http://twitter.com/MoueLaMoue Moue La Moue (D)

    I have worked my whole life. I’ve worked in the private sector that allowed me time off on the holidays and I’ve worked the retail sector where you are SERVICING the public. So that means working that J.O.B. on Black Friday, Gray Thursday and the Day After Christmas. That is HOW an economy works. That is how the Free Market works. Can’t understand that? Move to Cuba. You’ll get it after a while.
