Senator Bernie Sanders is calling for Walmart and it’s CEO to pay their employees $15 an hour. Sanders coins the current wages Walmart pays with the term ’starvation wages’. Sander claims that they are not enough to support a living.
Seriously, Bernie. Go to any, ANY, place of employment that adopted the policies that you espouse and ask if there are as many people employed as there were before they put your policies into effect.
The sad truth is that your policies put unskilled laborers out of work.
Has Bernie redistributed his book earnings? I must have missed that, surely!
I am a Walmart manager who started at $9 an hour pushing carts. I certainly make more than $15 an hour at this point and do you know how? I worked hard, became the best cart pusher. Became a cashier, because the fastest and best cashier for 1 1/2 years I was there, no contest. I trained for management for front end AND the floor and am working towards salary. That's not to mention the other jobs I'm becoming qualified for where I can make even more and the hundreds of hours of overtime.
An employers job is to give a job and pay you for the hours you work. That's it. They have a starting wage and if you want more, negotiate or get another job. I got where I'm at by working hard and proving my worth and people like Sanders want to just put the years of effort people like me put in to move forward obsolete just because "StArVaTiOn WaGeS". I payed my rent and ate fine with the $9 an hour wage. Cook at home, minimize your outings and save every penny left over.
Screw you, Sanders.
Wal-mart: Okay, just add a few more self checkout cashiers.
Shut up Bernie. You’ve never worked a day in your life let alone ran a business. This is not a defense of Walmart.
15$ national minimum wage.
Walmart: "Only if we can sell our goods at a higher price."
one of the only politicians who cares for the majority of the workers in the USA. what's teds,McConnel, biden, Trump, pelosi, shumer, ryans plan. it doesn't matter they only pay lip service to get ur vote and then get lobbied by big corporation to screw u even further. yeah hate Bernie or u could use critical thinking to find what politician doesn't vote againts what they supposedly stand for.
The Walton family is the richest in America. The family is now the descendents of the founders of Walmart, thus did not earn their wealth, it was given to then for free. They continue to increase their wealth by not paying workers relative to their produxtivity and market gains.
When Bernie has a company of his own he can pay his employees whatever he wants.
Walmart is corrupt and filthy, but burnie.... you wont help.
One million dollars per hour! https://tinyurl.com/y2kpdarg
You earned their wealth less then they did. Keep your greedy hands out of their pockets. If you’re unsatisfied with your wage don’t work there.
American work force is slave labor. Conservatives blame poor people for not wanting to work when you make $7.25 an hour, and then when they choose to go to a factory to make an actual living, they have to work mandatory overtime. Sometimes months on end, no day off. If they don't they can lose their job, all for the companies bottom line, and not wanting to hire more employees. Working people to the grave, and these people are not really living. While the rich stay rich and just want you to blame tired poor people. MAKE MANDATORY OVERTIME ILLEGAL, RAISE MINIMUM WAGE, TAX THE RICH AND MAJOR CORPORATIONS, WITHOUT LOOPHOLES!
I mean Walmart starts around me at like $11 an hour while some places still start at fuckin 5
I will listen to Bernie when he donates 99% of his wealth and demolish his houses to donate the property to a developer for low income housing and then moves into one of those houses. Until that happens he is just an old white guy spouting socialist indoctrination propaganda
Bernie they pay exactly what the workers agree to work for moron. There is no slavery in America anymore. I know it's hard for Bernie to understand because he has never actually worked a real job, but employment is voluntary.
Oooo, that talk is gonna snag him another summer home!
will senator sanders agree to his pay being means tested? after all if it is good enough for the unemployed and pensioners why not members of congress or the senate?
Make up your mind now, leave all your memories behind now.
