YES! Walmart should provide workers with a living wage.
YES! And every day after until workers get treated fairly.

I try NEVER to shop at Walmart. It's a rip off store to consumers and its workers.

I worked at Walmart for awile and saw benefits erode during my 5 years and they contine to slide downhill while corporate profits keep increasing. Unfortunately, no one in the stores near me will walk out because they all fear losing their jobs. I would shop elsewhere, but I'm out in the boonies and not much else around me. I do shope at othere store whenever possible.

I've been boycotting Walmart for some time, since I first heard of the strikes. I don't know if it's a national chain, but I now shop for groceries at least, at Winco which are employee owned stores in this area and I would encourage others to shop at these type of establishments and/or Union stores. We need a national boycott list ...any web nerds out there ....go for it! Also boycotting as many GMO food backers and foods as possible. There are lists around.

On a different note: Agenda 21 - lets call it what it is: the Chicken Little syndrome!

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
