Walmart: What’s Good For Walmart Is Good For Country, The Children

  union thugs

The annual Black Friday Walmart Pepper Spray CelebrationWalmart workers are threatening to strike on Black Friday and we at Wonkette couldn’t be happier because we are elitist liberals who do not shop at Walmart. But do not worry, Real Americans, you will not lose your Twinkies AND your big box retailer all in one week, because Walmart is NOT GOING TO TAKE IT.

Last week, Walmart filed an unfair labor complaint with the National Relations Board in response to the pickets and protests that have gone on for the past six months because if anyone is going to create an environment that could directly and adversely impact Walmart customers and associates, it’s going to be Walmart, not hippie union thugs.

“We are taking this action now because we cannot allow the UFCW to continue to intentionally seek to create an environment that could directly and adversely impact our customers and associates,” said Wal-Mart spokesman David Tovar. “If they do, they will be held accountable.”

The union is undeterred. “Walmart is grasping at straws,” said UFCW Communications Director Jill Cashen. “There’s nothing in the law that gives an employer the right to silence workers and citizens.”

Don’t anyone tell that to Walmart, which has had a strike organizer arrested, fired striking warehouse workers on the spot, and engaged in punitive measures against workers trying to organize a strike.

Numerous activities over the past year or longer “have caused disruptions to Walmart’s business, resulted in misinformation being shared publicly about our company, and created an uncomfortable environment and undue stress on Walmart’s customers, including families with children,” Walmart outside counsel Steven Wheeless said in a letter sent on Friday to Deborah Gaydos, assistant general counsel of the UFCW.

Yes, won’t someone PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN, asks Walmart, a business that compensates  its CEO more in one hour than retail employees earn in an entire year, has refused to pay overtime, understaffs to the point of compromising employee safety, and pays such a meager wage that a majority of its employees with children are living below the poverty line. But yes, think of the children. Better late than never.

        FWIW, I do my big-box shopping at Costco, a known Communist stronghold supporter of progressive causes; and one that provides some basic benefits and better-than-minimum wages for its worker bees.

    1. kittensdontlie

      Au contraire, it's the WalMart families with children that have always created an uncomfortable environment and undue stress on anyone shopping there.

        "You want to know what it's like to have kids? Go to any store with the word 'Mart' in the name. Those people are buying stuff to beat each other with." — some standup comedian

      1. GhostBuggy

        I have, on occasion, found myself in one (usually while traveling, and some kind of sundry is needed). It really is fucking strange. We have a regional big box in Michigan, Meijer, and it's like night and day between the two. Not that Meijer is any great shakes, but I still feel like I'm on Earth. Walmart just feels surreal somehow.

        1. mayor_quimby

          I went there when visiting a friend in the hellish burbs, to get some beer the other week, and didn't make it out. It was like a prison yard in there! Noisy, disorganized, the floors are prectically bare concrete. There were literally a half dozen people on scooters, people arguing, babies screaming. I was in line at checkout and somebody was arguing loudly with the cashier over a price check. After 30 seconds in line, I just put the beer down and ran the fuck out of there before I had a seizure. Terrible life decision to go there in the first place.

        2. Negropolis

          Meijer is pretty rabidly anti-gay – which is to be expected with them having been founded and based out of suburban Grand Rapids – but damnit if their stores aren't designed magnitudes better than a Walmart. They make Walmarts look like the unfinished warehouses that they are. It creates quite a bit of cognitive dissonance with me, because if you have to shop at any big box store, Meijer is one of the nicest experiences.

  1. snowpointsecret

    How can one protest Black Friday when they were never crazy enough to sit outside all Thanksgiving to save a dollar on a shirt in the first place?

    1. finallyhappy

      I will not be home for Black Thursday but got a request to join a protest a local Walmart(well, not super local but somewhere in PG county) on Friday.

    1. Jus_Wonderin

      I think that's only the employees. The shoppers will all be fine and able to spend. A hint though, take a look at the early morning specials circular. You'll want to stay away from those departments.

    1. Lascauxcaveman

      Yes, but you have promise to buy only fried chicken, watermelons, grape soda and menthol Kools.

      (I'm going to hell, aren't I?)

      1. BadKitty904

        "I told our pastor, Joe Twitchell, that I hoped to be cremated after my death. He just looked at me and said 'Oh, I wouldn't worry about that, if I had your chances…"

        ~ Mark Twain

    2. Chet Kincaid_

      I always thought Black Friday was so named because it was hell on retail workers, but it has been retconned to mean the day retailers finally make it into the black for the year. To me, the day looks more and more hellish every year.

      1. bobbert

        I thought it was borrowed from the use of the term in the thuggishly unionized construction trades, because day off for almost everybody (except the poor retail workers).

    1. SorosBot

      They would if they could; the executives are probably very disappointed that they can't get away with paying the staff ten cents an hour.

    2. Rotundo_

      Once they figure out that if they keep them in dormitories and living off cafeteria food on site and dock them nearly all (hell, even better, let them go into hock) their wages for the pleasure. I'm sure they're working on shipping container designs to bring them in from China, stack the containers out behind the store, and pack them up when they kick the bucket. They're pretty creative about their brand of fascism…

    3. tessiee

      Oh, come now.
      Aren't you going the long way around your elbow to get to your thumb?
      China is halfway around the world. Keep the workers here, just pay them in scrip.

  2. snowpointsecret

    If Wal-Mart was smart, they'd play Rebecca Black's Friday in front of their stores. That would make the union line flee in an instant.

    1. tessiee

      Aside from the rather neat symmetry of playing Black's Friday on Black Friday…

      The train I take to my temp job plays opera over loudspeakers. I thought that was kinda nice, until I found out the reason why was that directly behind the train platform is a park that's often haunted by gangs of hoodlumy teenagers, and the music is to scare them away.

  3. Come here a minute

    If a mother is unable to buy a ten-dollar Chinese Blu-ray player at 5:00 A.M. on Friday, it will prove that unions hate kids.

  4. SorosBot

    If the asshats who run Walmart could get away with sending in Pinkerton thugs to massacre all union-supporting employees, they surely would.

    1. Rotundo_

      They'd hire their own so they could pay them less. Recruit from the prisons, or have some exchange deal with the private penal systems and they could do it for almost nothing.

  5. editor

    “We are taking this action now because we cannot allow the UFCW to continue to intentionally seek to create an environment that could directly and adversely impact our customers and associates,”

    unions against workers? (sorry, "associates.") that doesn't even begin to make sense.

    1. Beowoof

      Well fair wages and benefits would create a new and unique situation for WalMart workers. As for adverse effects, I would say they would be the Walton family would be worth only$49,999,999,999. as opposed to $50,000,000.000

    2. tessiee

      "unions against workers? (sorry, "associates.") that doesn't even begin to make sense"

      They're wingnuts. If they can believe that mothers and children are "anti-family", believing that unions are anti-worker ought to be a snap.

    3. Lizzietish81

      Retail stores always refer to their employees as "associates" makes it fee less exploitve.

      When I get home, I am going to hug my college degree and thank the dark gods that I am not working in retail anymore.

  6. cognachas4paws

    I cannot imagine what Walmart is like on a normal day much less Black Friday because I refuse to shop there. But we have one near our house so if I see anyone out there picketing and protesting, I will gladly buy them coffee.

    1. Lascauxcaveman

      Or maybe just run interference to the WalMart-hired operatives handing out ipecac-laced coffee and donuts frosted in chocolate ex-lax.

  7. SorosBot

    Walmart spokesmen, you do know that the causing disruption to your business and creating an environment that adversely effects it is the goal of strikes, picketing and other union activities, and that those activities are in fact protected by Federal law, and it is in fact illegal for you to retaliate as you douchebags have? As much as you may think you are above the law, that's not actually so.

  8. glasspusher

    The only thing I could think of that's worse than shopping at Wal Mart is working at Wal Mart. Good luck to those folks!

      1. glasspusher

        It would be nice if the frigging stores could wait until black friday, instead of starting their xmas season two weeks before Halloween

        1. Beowoof

          I have decided to live with the Madison Avenue spirit of the holiday and keep my Christmas lights up and on all year round.

          1. glasspusher

            True story: My first year at college, I'm on trimesters, and come home in late February after the second trimester to find the xmas tree still up. My mom said “the needles never fell off, so I kept it up!” She had decorated it with Valentine's Day ornaments. Times like these I was glad we lived on a small dead end street…

          2. glasspusher

            I'm at that age now too…but keeping up with my mom's antics is still challenging, even if I'm less uptight overall. Now it's my kid's turn!

          3. tessiee

            "come home in late February after the second trimester to find the xmas tree still up. My mom said "the needles never fell off, so I kept it up!" She had decorated it with Valentine's Day ornaments."

            Marge Simpson: Good thing we had the Christmas tree.
            Homer [sarcastically]: Yeah, and SOMEBODY wanted to throw it out in APRIL!

          4. Lizzietish81

            I once went to a Beltane event where the host had kept her Christmas tree and built the wicker man around it. When it was put on the bonfire it lit right up.

            IF you're going to keep your Christmas Tree, it should only be for the purposes of burning it come Spring.

        2. tessiee

          Some trendy heathens actually start the War on Christmas before Halloween, but I'm old-fashioned in that regard. I wait until the day after Thanksgiving to kick off the season with the traditional sacrificing of a goat to Satan.

          1. glasspusher

            The tree is a pagan ritual, so I allow it in my house. Yeah, we party all night, celebrating the solstice. Jupiter is at opposition this December, by Jove!

        1. sullivanst

          Is that before or after the commandment to go shopping for cheap plastic objects as soon as dinner is over?

          1. boskolives

            I'll save you the wait, he's under home plate at what used to be Briggs Stadium. Go west from Hamtramck to Trumbull, then South, watch for the crumbling ruins. If you hit Michigan Ave. you've gone too far.

          2. boskolives

            I think your little birdy is on the pipe, Hoffa is obvs sitting in plain sight in the lead car on the people mover, and if anyone ever rides on it the game is over.

      1. FlipFlopFuck

        We could call it Good Friday…wait, our Lord and Saviour already has that day… when Daddy hung the fucker out to dry.

    1. GhostBuggy

      "My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Black Friday forever. We begin bombing in five minutes."

      With votes, of course!

  9. LibertyLover

    Poor, Poor Walmart. Can't you see how they struggle to be job creators/company stores for "you people?"

  10. HRH_Maddie

    Whatever. I guess mouth-breathers everywhere will just have to trample a Target employee to death on Black Friday.

    1. HouseOfTheBlueLights

      Target is upscale– their market is white, suburban SAHMs with college degrees. Not kidding.

    1. SorosBot

      Those minimum wage Walmart employees who have to go to work at 8PM on Thanksgiving night are just so lucky!

        1. SorosBot

          Ugh; and those are probably near-minimum-wage employees too, way to even further shit all over the working poor douchebags who run retail.

          1. finallyhappy

            yup, The local mall -Westfield-is opening sometime on Thursday night. In case, I haven't told my retail story- here is it. I worked retail in the early 70's in Philly for 4 years while in college. NO Sunday shopping at all. One late night every week- Wednesday until 9- and then day after Thanksgiving until Christmas- 9 Pm every night(but maybe not Saturday).

      1. shelwood46

        According to the Walmart employee who was on Up with Chris Hayes yesterday, they actually have to be in by 5pm at the latest, and will be fired if they don't come in and work a 12-hour shift.

      2. tessiee

        I usually have Thanksgiving dinner over a friend's house.
        This year, she texted me that she was working (she does phone work) over the holiday.
        I texted her back that, ironically, that would probably be LESS work than taking the day off and cooking for eight or nine hours.

    2. HistoriCat

      Let's face it – sometimes there is no price too high to be paid for escaping family togetherness. There are only so many options after you've put away the leftovers and cleaned up.

      1. SorosBot

        But they have to go to work at eight o'clock; at least in my family that's usually when we're starting dinner. Guess they'll have to move it to eating early.

        1. HistoriCat

          After holding in all the smartass replies and assorted insults which have built up throughout the day, physical separation is a good idea.

      2. tessiee

        "There are only so many options after you've put away the leftovers and cleaned up."

        After the Feats of Strength, it's pretty much all downhill.

  11. HRH_Maddie

    This is the Papa John's conundrum all over again. How can I boycott a place I never give my business to anyway?

    1. SmutBoffin

      Don't just boycott, take some action! If there is a picket line at my local 'Mart, I'm bringing coffee and donuts and handwarmers.

    1. emmelemm

      I don't think we'll ever have a Walmart in the city limits. (If we do already and I just don't know about it, don't tell me.)

      Then again, don't they have a Walmart in Manhattan now? Sure sign of the apocalypse.

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        No Mall-Wart in NYC — but not for lack of trying on their part.

        If you've ever seen all the small shops on a typical NYC street, you know that one megastore would trash every neighborhood within a 40-block radius. The attitude here is "fuck, no!"

  12. LibertyLover

    Now why would I want to spend any time at all racing the person who has been camping out in a tent for the last 3 days and probably hasn't had a shower for the 1 mega-monster big screen TV when I can be sleeping in my nice warm bed or snuggled up with a good book or someone who has at least read one?

    1. Jus_Wonderin

      "my nice warm bed or snuggled up with a good book or someone who has at least read one"

      I have to teach my weiner dog to read????

  13. SayItWithWookies

    But hey, the Waltons are causing all that human misery so they can bring art to Arkansas — which is pretty much the same as throwing it down an abandoned mineshaft, so if tens of thousands of people have to live in squalor so that millions of Americans can buy cheap crap so that the Waltons can acquire fabulous wealth and bring kulture to the middle of nowhere, then isn't it worth it?

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      The family has more wealth than 100,000,000 Americans — combined.

      But God forbid they pay a living wage to anybody not in the lofty ranks of "management."

    2. tessiee

      It's filled entirely with Kincaide and McNaughton paintings, except for the Breitbart in armor one by David Bugnon.

    1. Beowoof

      Except for that lobbying money Bob Wegman spent to keep the estate tax from affecting the transfer of his family wealth to his kids, yeah Wegmans is okay.

  14. malsperanza

    "Walmart outside counsel Steven Wheeless": this is the guy who sues employees who are trampled to death by customers, thereby creating an environment that could directly and adversely impact them. (The customers, that is; the employees are already impacted.). The lawyer for inside the store is Steven Eatmore. They are from the firm of Eatmore, Wheeless, and Eckslacks.

    Deborah Gaydos, assistant general counsel of the UFCW, is from the firm of —

    Meh, too easy, nevermind.

  15. SorosBot

    Worse yet, Walmart doesn't allow it's employees to kick Eric Dondero in the nuts when he shows up and does this:

    "When I'm at the Wal-mart or grocery story I typically pay with my debit card. On the pad it comes up, "EBT, Debit, Credit, Cash." I make it a point to say loudly to the check-out clerk, "EBT, what is that for?" She inevitably says, "it's government assistance." I respond, "Oh, you mean welfare? Great. I work for a living. I'm paying for my food with my own hard-earned dollars. And other people get their food for free." And I look around with disgust, making sure others in line have heard me. "

    1. MissTaken

      And those Walmart employees he yells at about EBT are paid so little by Walmart that they often use food stamps and other forms of government assistance. Oh you have an open wound? Let me poor some salt into it.

      1. SorosBot

        And Walmart even gives instructions on how to apply for SNAP benefits, because the company knows its' pay is too crap for employees to feed themselves without help. That gives an extra layer of shittiness to that behavior (if he really says that and isn't just making it up for his readers).

        1. glamourdammerung

          It is not welfare when The Job Creators (Peace Be Unto Their Names) and other Republicans do it.

    2. glasspusher

      One can only hope that the folks around him look back in disgust, at him! Bonus points for getting in a spirited discussion with fuckwit.

  16. snowpointsecret

    The people across the street have already put up a gigantic Christmas display and it's not even Thanksgiving yet…

    I'm assuming they'll be shopping on Thursday night when a lot of stores are already starting because Thanksgiving isn't Jesus-y enough. Seriously, can't these people wait until after this holiday ends before starting the next one?

    1. SayItWithWookies

      Between seeing in-store Christmas displays before Halloween and hearing a reporter ask a question about the 2016 presidential election at 12:05am on November 7, I'm already sick of everything that's scheduled to happen in the next four years.

      1. tessiee

        People who get their panties in a wad about "Happy Holidays" should probably be objecting to the stores promoting holidays, plural — as in Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas from Labor Day onward.

  17. Mumbletypeg

    I'd like to find a way to get Meat Loaf's "America the Beautiful" to play over my nearby Wal-Mart's sound system during Black Friday, for patriotism and for the purpose of driving everyone the hell out,
    but it's been so long since I've been inside one I don't remember if WalMart even has music playing in their stores.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      I don't know about the music, but boy, you should see the signs on the walls — if you're wearing the right sunglasses.

  18. Lot_49

    One of the best things about the Holiday Gifting Season is the breathless, nearly-hourly reporting on how full the mall parking lots are, how late the stores are open, how this years' sales compare with last year, what insane hour consumers arose to get in line, etc. It's almost as if the "reporters" who prepare these stories are just re-writing emails they get from PR people.

    But that would be unethical.

    1. tessiee

      "It's almost as if the "reporters" who prepare these stories are just re-writing emails they get from PR people."

      It's also almost as if they're 20 years behind the times and don't know about online shopping.

  19. BadKitty904

    Snark off: I've been to a Wal-mart exactly once in my entire life. And will never go again.

    It was one of the saddest places I've ever seen. :0(

    1. snowpointsecret

      I've seen something even worse, amazingly.

      It was a Cub Foods that was closing in the next week. Shelves were nearly barren and most people were missing teeth and half the men were shirtless. Nobody even seemed to care, either. It was like a teleportation device to eastern Kentucky or something.

    2. Designer_Rants

      My wife goes there sometimes, but we're kinda limited here in Real America. She prefers Target, but I think they're only slightly better in the Living Wage/Human Decency dept.

      1. Jus_Wonderin

        I must confess I go to the Wal-Mart Neighborhood Markets. We have one that is just a stones throw as the bird hop skips and jumps away. It really is a nice store.

    3. Biff

      I live outside a town that got gutted when a walmart opened. There's not much choice anymore, other than make the 65 mile trip to Vegas. More often than not, I just forgo the purchase until I do take a trip to town.

    4. Negropolis

      I used to go every other mnth because I refused to pay damn-near 15 dollars for rechargable lithium batteries at Radio Shack that seemed to go up in price every year by a dollar,, and then I just started going to neither and finding them elsewhere. I'm not proud of it. I mean, how ridiculous is it to protest Radio Shack by choosing to spend your money at Walmart. I was younger and stupid.

    1. Toomush_Infer

      Do they sell those at Walmart? Because I know Target and K-Mart are both prohibited by local law…

  20. ph7

    Think about the children.
    The chinese children who made those $7 toaster ovens shoppers will jump on each other's heads to buy.

  21. smellypossum

    "an environment that could directly and adversely impact our customers and associates"

    Yes. It's clearly all about the customers and associates. We all know the Walton family values clan isn't just in it for the money, and instead they want to make sure the familes of customer and associates get to spend Thanksgiving together (binge eating, binge drinking, and binge NFL watching), immediately before the kickoff of the binge spending shit show that is the Christmas season.

    Fuck you John Boy. Fuck you Mary Ellen.

    I still hate WalMart.

  22. Abernathy

    To paraphrase Flannery O'Connor, corporations would be good people if there was somebody there to shoot them every minute of their lives. With votes (but maybe not, since they aren't elected?). So do it to them, union folks!

  23. carolinaswamp

    How are the Walton's to make a decent living if they can't pay employees so little that they need EBT cards to eat, Medicaid for medical care, and buses to get around? Just remember — every time we subsidize WalMart workers, we are really subsidizing the deserving WalMart owners. You wouldn't want them eating pasta and tuna, would you?

    1. Rotundo_

      Those are among the more popular things at foodbanks these days, and those "Lucky Duckies" who use them don't even have to use EBT for the stuff. I am sure the Waltons are scandalized.

  24. Defeatably_Joe

    Walmart’s customers, including families with children

    It's a good thing none of Walmart's employees include families with children, or using THE CHILDREN as an excuse to deny employees equitable pay and benefits would come across as deeply shitty.

  25. yellojkt

    Dollar stores are Walmart's major competitor now. Heaven forbid Walmart pays its employees enough to shop in their own crappy store.

  26. Antispandex

    "Are there no prisons… and the Union workhouses, are they still in operation?"

    Charles Dickens wrote that in 1843. 1843! When are these union thugs going to catch on? It's time to stop this, "Sir, please, I want more" stuff, and get tough with the "children".

    1. BadKitty904

      'Cause nothing says "Peace on earth, good will towards men" like an unseemly, greed-crazed brawl…

  27. Toomush_Infer

    My sister in law is a store manager at one of the endless number of Walmarts (I'm afraid to say where lest it jeopardize her tenuous position and piss off my brother) – as great as she is, otherwise, the corporate tentacles have sunk their suction cups deep into her flesh, and she does not even realize she's being ravished as we speak….fuck Walmart already…

  28. T3rbo

    It's all about the margins: if wal-mart loses 5% efficiency in the stores where the walkouts will take place, that is a major major loss. I myself will not be shopping anywhere during black friday, because common sense

  29. Pithaughn

    I am so going to bring some cookies to those strikers! Walmart has laid waste to down towns all over and is an evil predatory person/corporation. It is particularly disgusting how they get communities to bid against each other with tax breaks and then both towns eventually end up with a walmart with in a few years.

    1. sati_demise

      Walmart got a 6 million dollar tax break in my town. so, no, have not walked into a Wal Mart in over 25 years now. fuck them and the tax break they rode in on..

  30. Sassomatic

    Well of course. Strikes are supposed to make everyone feel comfortable and content, not to disrupt the usual flow of the social order, not to mention the usual flow of capital to Wal-Mart share holders. I mean, having to see striking workers makes people have to think about shit, and be aware of things, and that is just unacceptable in a civilized society.

  31. Barrelhse

    I have never set foot in a Walmart, and I sure as hell never will. Fuck the Waltons (with pitchforks).

  32. TootsStansbury

    HEY WALMART! *Reaches into bag of fuck yous*

    Found one, it's a 1000 feet high and it lights up. FUCK YOU! Go Walmart workers.

  33. tessiee

    You know, if places like Chick-Fil-A and Papa John's and now Wal-Mart, that I wouldn't be caught dead going into ANY-way, are going to treat their employees like crap, how am I supposed to boycott them?

  34. tessiee

    "Last week, Walmart filed an unfair labor complaint with the National Relations Board"

    My then-morbidly obese sister needed a new bathing suit for her cruise to Mexico. She dragged me into a Walmart. I helped her find what she needed (coverup, dog food), and got out of there as quickly as possible. I was traumatized.

    I'll never, ever set foot in a Walmart again. And Blah Friday? That's why Al Gore created the Internet. Let your fingers do the shopping, on ebay and etsy.

    To the Walmart family – you cannot take it with you when you all die from disgustingly horrible diseases and rot in 10,000 Chinese Hells for exploiting workers – and beating up on the little guy.. may your families first born all be trampled by wild elephants aka (obese walmart shoppers on black friday's )for 1000 generations

    "Last week, Walmart filed an unfair labor complaint with the National Relations Board in response to the pickets and protests"

    "Why are you oppressing yourself? Why are you oppressing yourself? Why are you oppressing yourself?…"

    Walmart filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board? Good luck witha that. lol You bastards are on our turf, now. You fought the good (evil) fight. It is only a matter of time before you'll be forced to treat your slaves like humans. Why make it harder transition on yourself?

    All I want from any retailer is for fackin' Shaw's to take me off of their email list! I visited goddamn Maine/New Hampshire about 6 years ago, shopped there 3 times, never gave them my email, and yet I still get their weekly specials every motherfuckin'Thursday. All attempts to unsub have failed, and they just keep sending me shit. Any Wonkers from Maine want to picket over that shit, I will buy you a Bob Marley (comedian) CD!
    FYI, I live in Georgia-stan, so their lobster tail specials and whatnot are a really long drive to save $10.

    The last time I went to Chinamart (ages ago). I asked a young man where the potting soil was and he replied, in tears, "I don't know, I have had to work here for three years and it sucks so bad." I immediately left and have never been back.

    While we're at it, fuk Applebee's too. Their greedy mofo CEO thinks health care is for sissies. Maybe it's just me, but eating in a restaurant with sick employees is just not very appetizing.
