Candorville: 8/12/08- Gall-Mart, part 2

From the Murdoch Street Journal (formerly known as the Wall Street Journal):

“Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is mobilizing its store managers and department supervisors around the country to warn that if Democrats win power in November, they’ll likely change federal law to make it easier for workers to unionize companies — including Wal-Mart. In recent weeks, thousands of Wal-Mart store managers and department heads have been summoned to mandatory meetings at which the retailer stresses the downside for workers if stores were to be unionized.According to about a dozen Wal-Mart employees who attended such meetings in seven states, Wal-Mart executives claim that employees at unionized stores would have to pay hefty union dues while getting nothing in return, and may have to go on strike without compensation. Also, unionization could mean fewer jobs as labor costs rise….The Wal-Mart human-resources managers who run the meetings don’t specifically tell attendees how to vote in November’s election, but make it clear that voting for Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama would be tantamount to inviting unions in, according to Wal-Mart employees who attended gatherings in Maryland, Missouri and other states.”The meeting leader said, ‘I am not telling you how to vote, but if the Democrats win, this bill will pass and you won’t have a vote on whether you want a union,’” said a Wal-Mart customer-service supervisor from Missouri. “I am not a stupid person. They were telling me how to vote,” she said.”

    What with all the RUMORS, FALSEHOODS, DELIBERATE LIES being told by the people with the BIG money and the Republicans and the people FAR on the religious right, and those whites who ARE bigoted, and those Blacks who won’t vote for Obama out of fear of him being hurt or worse, we really need THIS now from Wallmart? Oh, my Go-d. Thank you for showing this, and I hope MILLIONS and BILLIONS of people learn from this comic. Otherwise, Obama may not have even a fighting chance.
