Walkout Planned

It seems that a bunch of idiots are planning a walkout at Wal-Mart tomorrow.
"Walmart workers and their supporters today announced the largest mobilization since Black Friday, set for Thursday, September 5. The announcement comes as Walmart has failed to meet a Labor Day deadline to reinstate illegally fired and disciplined workers, publicly commit to improve jobs and end the company’s aggressive violations of workers’ rights," OUR Walmart said.
Looks to me like a bunch of people are going to be fired tomorrow.  If I were a business owner and my employees decided to walk, they wouldn't be allowed back in the store, not even with their unemployment checks.  I'd have them arrested for trespass if they ever showed up at the store again.

you and me both.

I once owned a business and some fools tried to intimidate my by threatening to create a union... All 5 employees.
When I was done laughing, I told them go ahead. I always decide if I keep the business open.
Union desires died pretty quickly after that.

It is now the morning of 7 September and I have neither seen nor heard a peep about the massive strike against Wal-Mart.

What happened? Inquiring mind wants to know.
