I love asking the anti union people who have never been in a union why they hate unions....and the answer is usually "I dont know, were not suppose to support them" as they are just going along with the sheep. Its exactly like asking a liberal that is anti gun if they actually own a gun and the answer is "No". How can you be anti gun if youve never owned one and know nothing about them?? Funny world.
Que? You’ve had several examples from people in unions who were not happy with them. Why all the talk about people who haven’t been in one?

Read what I said again, "I love asking people....", I never asked anyone in here. I was talking about talking to people in general, not in here. I never said anything about the members here and their personal experiences.

Like anyone would ever say.."I don't know, we're not supposed to support them."
Insanity must suck, bigly.

Facts and personal experiences of others don't fit his narrative, that's why.

I remember when my wife was in a union working in a pharmacy. She made $200 or so less a month than her non-union coworkers, and had the same benefits. But at l least she got a pro democrat, anti walmart, "republicans want you dead" newsletter every month. Yay unions.

It's not to say all unions suck, but these days, the vast majority are just leaches trying to make a buck.

Ask people directly in person and that is the answer I mostly hear. Again, its the same with the anti gun crowd, they are anti because they are told to be, not because they have a reason.

Well, you just gave a personal story and narrative. The facts I posted is that Walmart employees cost the taxpayers over 62B in public assistance yearly. Other people's personal experiences are their own stories, I cant dispute them. I have seen the good unions do and talk to alot of people about the topic. There is no specfic narrative, just experiences and observations. Me- I dont want to pay for Walmart's employee's benefits, I think Walmart should take care of their employees, not my taxes.

Then don't shop there!

And VOTE for candidates that don't believe in public assistance, and against those that raise the bar defining "poverty" to get more voters on public assistance!

And again, several months ago your link was shown to be one of illegitimate sources. Read it, the source, and tell us how unbiased they are.

So you would rather be paying for all their costs when they have no job at all? Including for their unemployment insurance, etc?

No, I rather Walmart pick up the slack and pay the gap like pretty much every other company does. We dont see Costco, CVS, Home Depot or Lowe's employees on public assistance because they pick up the whole employee as they should. Walmart screws their employees and we the taxpayers have to cover them. Just pay the gap so they can get off taxpayer public assistance like other companies do, its not that hard.

https://www.mydaytondailynews.com/n...employees-food-stamps/cxqzF1NHn74uisiJNcpFFP/

Top 25 have more than 1000 employees on public assistance in Ohio.

Amazon is another large offender.

There is also the idea that these jobs are not intended to be worked for a long period of time to raise a family. Advance, learn, make more money. Make yourself more valuable to a company and get yourself off public assistance.

If some people knew half as much as they think they do, they would know twice as much as they in reality, do.
More good reason to never go across the stateline again, as if I needed one...Poohole.

Good work..Wasted on the purposefully ignorant, though.

Wow, you got McDonalds in Ohio and Amazon. Like I said above, most companies pick up the gap and their employees are not on public assistance. I named 4-5 and you found 2. Good job on the Google. How many companies in Nevada have their employees on public assistance? How many hotels, car dealers, restaurants, etc?

And posting these companies and these links kind of makes you look the fool. You rather pay more in taxes out of pocket to be right here, but in reality, youre really losing your tax dollar. Again, I rather see the companies take care of their employees instead of my taxes.

I’d like to see employees who take jobs that were never intended to be worked by someone raising a family grow professionally and get promoted. Make more money because you’re more valuable to your company. Learn a new skill and get paid more. In short take responsibility for your own situation instead of crying that you want to be paid more to flip burgers or be the greeter at Walmart.

Well, its on thing to "like", but the reality is your tax dollars are being spent on Walmart's employees. Walmart who makes billions in profits every year could pick up the gap and get their employees off of taxpayer assistance, but they wont. The bottom line is- If you pay taxes, youre paying for Walmart's employees.

Well you would “like” Walmart to pay unskilled labor more money and subsequently increase their prices so when you shop there you’re paying for their employees anyways.

One way or another we’re paying for it. Your proposal rewards unskilled labor and encourages them to stay that way. My proposal would have people grow and mature into better employees. I’ll let the peanut gallery here determine which is a better idea.

No, not what I said. I said I would like to see Walmart take care of their employees instead of my tax dollars. Their employees are their responsibility, not taxpayer funded public assistance. You stay in your fantasy land, but if youre paying taxes, youre funding Walmart's employees.

Exactly. You want Walmart to pay their unskilled labor more money. Think that money is just going to come from the sky? Grows on a tree? I’m sure it’s the same way CALPers is going to be flush with cash forever. If they pay their unskilled labor more we’re going to pay more in their store.

You are in favor of paying more for what should be cheap labor. I’m in favor of cheap labor learning to become skilled labor. Again I’ll let those observing decide the better plan.

Oh my, are you seriously not that smart to understand basic economics or just trolling here? To fill the Walmart employee gap, it comes out of Walmart's profit margin, just like all of the other companies in the nation with employees not on public assistance like Costco, CVS, Home Depot, Lowes, Station Casinos, etc. Its not that hard to figure out. You know I am right and so angry, youre going to go in circles trying to find some new answer to discredit me. All Walmart needs to do is pick up the gap that will take their employees off of taxpayer funded public assistance AND it can be done without raising prices in the stores.

I’m sure it’s the same way CALPers is going to be flush with cash forever.
Hmmm...CalPERS is over 86 years old and the biggest pension program in the world and doing pretty well. I cant say 86 years is "forever", but its a long time. Seems to be working well.

You are in favor of paying more for what should be cheap labor. I’m in favor of cheap labor learning to become skilled labor. Again I’ll let those observing decide the better plan.

... according to a biased, union report from years ago.

"Americans for Tax Fairness, a coalition of 400 national and state-level progressive groups, made this estimate using data from a 2013 study by Democratic Staff of the U.S. Committee on Education and the Workforce."
