Sam's Clubbing the Workers 

According to AP:

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said Wednesday it will close a Canadian store whose workers are on the verge of becoming the first ever to win a union contract from the world's biggest retailer.

They say those unreasonable unionists are causing the store to lose money by demanding things.

The union's demands would have forced the retailer to add 30 people to the existing payroll of 190, and guarantee many workers additional hours, he [Andrew Pelletier, a spokesman for Wal-Mart Canada] said.

"In our view, the union demands failed to appreciate the fragile conditions of the store," he said.

W-why, these stores are practically on the verge of going under! Can’t they see that? What, do they expect to actually make a living at this?

Hey, remember when Wal-Mart’s meatcutters organized? Good old Sam eliminated all meatcutting positions, and went to prepackaged meats only.

Ain’t capitalism grand? It’s a great McWorld we live in. Yup.

Grow yer own.
