2. It's probably a little more than 1%

 

I'm pretty sure I read there are about 100 million employed in the country.

And yea they treat them pretty bad.

3. 100,000,000 american employees?

You may want to check that math- this figure suggests that more than 30% of Americans are employed by Walmart- that can't be right. Maybe 100,000,000 employees world-wide is what you meant?

4. Imagine if all those employees ever figure out how much power they have.

It'd be like a teamster strike back in the day. Everyone would feel it. In some areas where Walmart has a monopoly especially. The Moses Lake area in Washington state is one I know of. They have three of those Super Wally Worlds within 60 miles. Moses Lake, Ephrata and Othello. Safeway has stores in Moses Lake and Ephrata but those are older smaller Safeways.

Virtually no other retailers that can handle much volume. Maybe Rite-Aid is in one of those towns. You shut down Walmart in that area and everyone will feel it.

6. Imagine what is going to happen once a Union gets in the door of even one store! It

 

will be game over in all Walmart stores. The Union (I would presume) UFCW will knock em dead if they get just one.

lol... Now that was interesting. I did a spell check on my post and a suggestion for UFCW came back as FUCK.

You just can't make this shit up.
