UFCW FAIL – Wal Mart Labor Protests…. Made For TV Protests Fizzle….

The United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) used five busses to ship in protesters to Wal Mart at Landover Maryland they walked circles for about an hour for the TV cameras then left…

ROFLMAO – “Occupy Palm Beach County” joins picket line…  :D

In Orlando a one woman protest, Lisa Lopez, joined with re-elected congressman Alan Grayson.   At least one worker went out on strike at stores in Ocean City, Md.; Orlando, and Baton Rouge.    The Huffington Post reported that 70 Los Angeles Walmart workers from nine stores walked off the job Thursday (avg 8 per store) in what the news site “hyped as” the first walkout by workers in multiple stores in the retailer’s 50-year history.

About 250 workers and supporters protested outside a Pico Rivera Walmart store, carrying signs that read, “On Strike for the Freedom to Speak Out” and “Walmart Strike Against Retaliation.”  The workers said their complaints about working conditions and low pay have been met with threats, suspensions and terminations.  But only five of he protesters actually worked for Wal Mart the rest were “rent-a-picket” supporters organized and paid by the UFCW….

Meanwhile CEO Bill Simon said in a statement that there were only 26 protests at stores Thursday night, “and many of them did not include any Walmart associates.”

Simon estimated that less than 50 associates took part in the protest nationwide, about the same number, he said, who missed their scheduled shift last year.

Colby Harris, of Making Change at Walmart, which helped organize the strike, challenged Simon’s numbers, saying that workers in over 100 stores had taken part and would continue to throughout the day.  Harris, who was on strike from a Dallas Walmart, told MSNBC without elaboration, that “thousands” had walked off the job nationwide.

    I have been waiting to hear about this “event” — glad it was such an epic fail.

    That sign that says “protest low morals”—that right there is funny.

    Wonder if the goofball holding it has any idea what kind of grief he’s asking for. The millions of Americans who habitually protest low morals and live with high morals and have been for decades–are mocked, derided, made fun of, hated by the left, laughed at by Hollywood, sneered at by Barack Hussein Obama, ignored and targeted by teh media. He doesn’t look like the type who has what it takes to withstand all of that.

    Walmart isn’t forcing anyone to work…

    This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for my Wal-Mart job…

    It’s my understanding that our closest Walmart asked for volunteers first, and some are getting holiday pay. Not sure about other stores. They also opened at 8pm–just about the time you want to leave your relatives with the dirty dishes. Typical Twinkie event for the media.

    I was curious so I went to one of our local Walmart Super Stores. I just got back and was there for about an hour, talking to several employees, two of whom were in their sixties. They all consistently said everyone in that store was glad to have a job. I am in Florida we have a serious job problem

    I was surprised to see so few people… no problem finding parking near the front doors and no waiting in line. I forgot what I went there for so I bought some sweet potatoes which I love mixed in with grits. It is best to refrigerate the sweet potatoes after they have baked, then mash them up into well buttered, long cooking original grits. The hot and cold combination is what makes it so delicious. It’s a variation on cold, syrupy Freestone peaches left in the ice box all night and then mixed with hot Cream of Wheat. Sorry, I have had food on my mind for a few days now.

    Both of these were a special breakfast my Mom made for all of us while growing up, but usually only on Sunday morning before church.

    I hope everyone has lots of leftovers for the week. Thanksgiving is that one special day when we can feel OK about pigging out but I feel really awful about those who did not eat yesterday while many folks threw away some of their excess food.

    How do they get away with that modified American Flag in the Photo. They placed company names in the place of the stars. That flag looks a lot like the flag in this wikipedia photo.
