Your Opinion on the Target, WalMart, (Other Bigbox Retailer Here) Thanksgiving Protests

141 posts in this topic

My wife is a med tech, she had to work yesterday, so no I don't feel a lot of sympathy. But I don't understand anyone that would want to shop on black friday or thanksgiving night. I can't imagine a worse torture.

I can't imagine anyone wanting to Christmas shop in an actual store. Get the same deals on line and miss the hassle.

You could not pay me to go shopping on Black Friday.

Lol

We need wage slaves to come work holidays because if it wasn't for them I would not have the opportunity to buy an Emerson 50 inch LCD that will break within a year for 200 dollars off regular price. Don't like it well then quit your job and get a better education so you can make salary but don't take out any loans you can't afford to pay off or go somewhere you require a grant to attend because I don't want my taxes going up because I don't understand what a social contract is

So basically you should just blame everyone else for your shitty life and shitty education/career choices. Got it.

I'm sorry your friend's been working at walmart for almost 10 years, that's very unfortunate. Because Walmart hires everyone between 7-8 dollars an hour, regardless of past work experience. You get 40 cent raises every year, that's it. Whether you blow house rodents for 8 hours a day or actually do work.

He'd have to have been there at least 8 years to be earning 12 dollars an hour.

Take it from someone who worked for them for 6 years during high school/undergrad.

I'll tell you guys some more stories if you'd like to hear them. Walmart is the devil.

Unskilled labor garners unskilled labor wages. It is as simple as that.

Want a better paying job....actually give a damn about school and education.

I actually went to Concord Mills yesterday because we bought a shirt for my son last week and the store forgot to remove the security tag. I was pretty surprised to see that it wasn't especially crowded. While we were out, we went to Wal-Mart too for some basic stuff, and it was also uncrowded. Maybe people are finally getting smart about this black friday stuff?

But don't borrow the $100,000 or so it'll take to go to public school cause that shows a lack of personal responsibility.

Yeah, let's not take someone seriously who is a financial and business success. Let's just listen to people like you continue to blame others for your shitty and financially poor existence. We could learn so much on how NOT to achieve success from you.

My parents paid for zero of my college education. I worked 3 jobs and paid for 100% of my education without borrowing a cent.

I did not party for 4 years...I lived at home for 3 of those 4 years...I never went on spring break....I worked 60 hrs a week during summer.

You don't have to go into debt to get an education.

i think we should just revert to the caste system guys

i mean seriously if you're 18 and you don't have the means to go to college and be 'upwardly mobile' lolololol then it's because it's either your fault or it's just meant to be. either pull yourself up by your bootstraps like everyone ever who's successful did your just read some books on dharma and deal with it.

tired of you pinhead commies and your altruistic benevolence crap. i mean when i say i believe everything i have was given to me by god DOESN'T ACTUALLY MEAN GOD GAVE IT TO ME OR ANYTHING so stop bringing that up, all of you

Walmart is actually better than most retailers in that they DO give yearly raises, as shitty as they may be. I was just railing against the idea that someone's going to start out making 12 dollars an hour working anywhere in Walmart.
