Walmart: Oppressor Extraordinaire

Walmart is being flooded with applicants at every new store.

The article in question states:

As the world's largest private employer, Wal-Mart is used to being greeted by large numbers of applicants almost every time it opens a new store.

But the 6,000-plus people who applied for jobs at the new Supercenter in Cleveland's Steelyard Commons took everyone, even Wal-Mart, by surprise.

'We had to recount [the applications] three times,' said Mia Masten, Wal-Mart's director of corporate affairs, Midwest division.

When thousands of people compete for a few hundred ordinary jobs, trend watchers say it's an indication not only of a less-than-stellar economy but also of a workforce short on marketable skills.

The huge number of applicants wouldn't have caught anyone's eye had these been skilled, high-paying jobs, the types of positions that thousands of people always seek.

But these were regular retail jobs with low-to-average wages and benefits, not the sort of positions typically in high demand. Target wouldn't disclose the number of people who applied to work at its Steelyard Commons store.'s god-awful The Plain Dealer -- and the MSM -- just don't get it. These Marxist propagandists absurdly think that the applicants who are getting hired into the company and other retail chains like it are the victims of "capitalist exploitation." Yet they don't realize that the company which they waged war against is actually helping them, not hurting them. They also have no clue that the anti-free enteprise monsters like the AFL-CIO or even the United Food and Commercial Workers are just pilfering their wagings to further their own political agendas at the expense of the workers whom they claim they support.
