If Walmart wants better employees than the lazy no good ones they have now they need to pay them more than that. I guess you get what you pay for!

It is 63 Sam's Club stores, but the point is solid. Thousands of employees were just turfed TODAY in an epic blindside. Also, how many of these continuing employees, called "associates" by Wal Mart, have the opportunity to work a full 40-hour week and thus be eligible for company insurance and other benefits? Instead, they are forced to rely on government health insurance, government nutrition and assistance programs that the right-wing wants to yank away from the working poor. That less-than-full employment cohort can't organize a union to fight this. Rules are rules, after all. Clip those coupons, Wal Mart workers.
