    My wife is a dept manager at wally world and was a prisoner of one of these meetings 2 weeks ago and now fears that "they" will fbd reasons to dismiss anyone with actual knowledge of "their" crime. And yes used the word crime.

    To Amber T:
    How about K-Mart and Target? Did they protect the Mom and Dad shop around the corner? How about all the other retailers that fill our shopping malls?
    They are not running wild?
    How about Home Depot etc?

    What is your beef with Walmart? They did not hire you when u applied?
    Must have had a reason, sorry!!!

    Walmart has been good to me and for me, my 401k is packed without the union.

    I would really like to talk to these people complaining about their supervisors telling them how to vote; to find out the truth and/or , if so necessary, to help fire an associate not worth being a supervisor.

    Just my 2 cents, thank you!

    I am looking forward to the wars between corporations and the public. It could end up being a bloody mess.

    Wal-Mart is not the spa-like employer it tries to portray itself as such, the American work place is simply not a place to reach Nirvana. It is commonplace for the work enviroment to be a productive, chaotic, stress- ridden atmosphere. Perhaps Wal-Mart did not say vote for McCain, but if there was an allusion who to vote for, pressure by who helps put food on your table is not comforting.

    Walmart is not the only company who is trying to get their employee's to vot for Mccain.
    My Husbands company also tried to tell employees to vote for McCain
    so that a union would not come in to the state. Arizona is a right to work state.

    How would anyone know who the employees of Wal-Mart voted for?
    When you go into the booth you vote privately and unless you go around advertising or telling people who you voted for, how would Wal-Mart know? I think Wal-Mart corporate has lost its mind anyway. Have you noticed how much things have changed since Sam Walton passed away? I bet that man is turning over in his grave twice. We as Americans need to take back control over Wal-Mart. We have allowed them to run wild and have enabled them to run all of the small, mom and pop businesses out of towns. I hope ALL Wal-Mart employees vote for whichever candidate they believe in their heart and soul will lead this country forward, and not be intimidated by their employer.
