    All I saw was the show making a joke out something that is not very funny, as in Wal-Marts very real and well documented mistreatment of its workers. Neil

    Looked like a bunch of Lord Soetoro's henchmen. That Gitting's couldn't even figure out which lie to tell. Maybe he could use a teleprompter.

    yup Walmart, McDonalds, BK, Wendys, Pizza Hut, K Mart, all car washes..etc.......they should ALL be forced by unions to pay a living wage,
    I don't know, say 60K, no maybe 70K a year, fair is fair, after all, lots of well educated, experienced company execs make more than that!!

    When you go to the website look at the whole web address, a skit from comedy central. Even the acting isn't that good.

    That Comedy Central banner looks like an AD to me and has nothing to do with the Daily Show. It looked like and had the feel of a real interview. JRM

    It looks to me that if the video is real, the union was trying to do the right thing the wrong way. You can only be mistreated if you'll allow yourself to be mistreated. Apparently Wal-Mart employees haven't had enough yet. The old saying still holds true, "United We Stand, Divided We Fall". Neil

    trinketshooter, you must be kidding. Hiring non union strikers to stike? That's whats wrong with this country. Everyone takes the easy way out, and no one has true conviction.

    An aquaintence of mine was BA at a local UAW plant and he wanted to build a garage. Instead of hiring a friend who was a laid off union carpenter, he hired an Amish bunch from out of state. When it was his $, for some reason non-union was OK.

    Live by example.

    I find it hard to believe but I suppose stranger things have happened. Listening to some of the stories told on this website I'm glad I live in the Midwest where things are normal. I have to agree with Setterman, living by example goes a long way.

    There are companies where unions just aren't feasible but doing union work should be done by unionized people. lol

    The workers at my Walmart seem to be very happy they have a job---I wonder how many union workers buy at Wal-Mart?---Wal-Mart doesn't want to become like Generous Motors---SJB---
