Will you walk a Wal Mart picket line on Friday?

Should Wal Mart workers in your area voluntarily walk off the job on Friday, will you join them in support...?

1. Disabled; don't march much anymore. I will most definitely support them from home.

 

Now, and in the future as well.

2. I will, if it happens, but I don't expect it to.

Jobs are too scarce around here to risk it.

3. That's too bad...

The employers ought to fear their employees; not the other way around.

4. I wouldn't put it that way, exactly, but I get your drift.

The workforce in this area has very little leverage.

5. I will not cross their picket line, I may even join in if they get

union support. The union has placed paid picketers at the stores in the past and customers that I know with good paying union jobs walked right by like they weren't even there.

6. Not going near anything that even smells of retail on Friday.

Besides, I have to work.

7. Thankfully, we don't have any out here

I went inside one of those places - one time - and lost part of my soul.

How one could actually work in one of those places on a regular basis is beyond me.

8. I am covering the story for the paper

So yes, will be braving the Black Friday crowds, with a zoom.

9. I don't want to see anyone lose their jobs... I can see wal-mart firing anyone

 

who is standing in a picket line.
