Walmart: What I'd Like to Know


How many of the picketers, protesting against Walmart, actually work for Walmart.

I'd bet most are not even employed by Walmart.  

I bet they are there with a different motive.

Something to do with the union.  Uh huh.

AND-- I wonder how many people realize that Target, Penneys, Kmart, Sears--to name a few-- pay their people the same hourly wage as Walmart.  

Yet you don't see any protests there.

Maybe it's because Walmart is one of the largest employers in the world and THAT would be a big cherry for the union.

Uh huh.  I smell a rat.

By the way, here is a list of the ten biggest employers in the world:

U.S. Department of Defense  3.2 million

Chinese Army  2.3 million

Walmart   2.1 million

McDonald's  1.7 million

Chinese National Petroleum   1.7 million

State Grid Corporation of China 1.6 million

National Health Service (England)  1.4 million

Indian Railways  1.4 million

China Post Group  900,000

Hon Hai Precision Industry   800,000
