    There is no doubt about the value of a union. But a union in a store like Target or Walmart is unlikely. The low cost good pricing is not possible with a union. That Walmart and Target are profitable means nothing. All that counts is labor costs. YRC is giving hefty discounts to keep market share but they're losing money doing it.

Walmart has an out of stock problem there is never any workers around and it takes all day to get out almost like your waiting @ the airport for a security clearance. When I lived in FL they ran the stores much better.

    I think the only union market left is shop rite, I enjoy that store and enjoy going there

    I get all food at shop rite and everything else @ target

    Wrong. The fact that Walmart and Target are profitable does mean something. It means they can afford to pay higher wages and bennies and
    have union employees...and still control costs for consumers.

    Where is your head at? If they were to correct the lop sided structure of compensation from the top on down, they could achieve both.

    Not sure about Target but it seems to me that the principal owners of Walmart "the Waltons" are among the richest people in the world..Even if they were to pay there people a little more with some benifits they would still be up there in the top of the top 1 % er's ..Why is it you always stick up for the big Corporations Oh buy the way did you know that walmart is going to eliminate all their greeters Hope you don't lose your part time job...

    Yeah but Target and K-Mart are just as bad or any of the box stores with the exception of some of the Costco's which are union..

    The labor cost argument doesn't hold water anymore.
    YRC has even admitted that they are even with the rest of the industry now, and they still can't clear a penny
