46. The second point is a long process
But they have been working on it for a long time now. Things are coming to a head pretty quick especially since the loss of overtime bill is close to becoming effective. In addition, the union strike settlements have only gained protection for current workers. They have had to give in on any protection for new workers.

The courts are turning away worker rights suits and big corporations are winning bills which protect them from litigation. The decent wage for a lower income worker is very much in danger.

I have to disagree with you about the main reason people will not stop shopping at Walmart. The disinterest is one part, but the other main reason is that we are in an inflationary period (even though BushCo tries to tell us we are not) and more people have to shop at WalMart just to make the paycheck stretch farther.

What is even more disheartening is that more and more Dollar stores are popping up all over the place for people who think WalMart prices are too high.
