they forgot to add that all those people on low wages don't contribute to the local economy because they don't have any disposable income to spend.

WTF, isn't there a link to the "ridiculous video" without these people presenting you your opinion?

Dore hardly reflects my opinion on most things. We tend to agree on the problem, but not the solution. Dore rightly points out how Walmart is being dishonest but he fails to acknolwedge the dark side of unions, espcially massive unions like the kind that would represent Walmart workers. He doesn't seem to understand that a union is just another organized power structure prone to corruption.

that doesn't make sense, even a corrupt union would fix that problem, and nearly all unions aren't corrupt anyway. if a union did become corrupt, that'd be a different problem, though just as worthy of being righted. just because another problem may arise is no reason to prevent a union from being formed to fix the exploitation of workers, states, and taxpayers, and it's exactly that kind of fearmongering big corporations use in order to offload their costs onto others.

I'm wary of solving a problem by creating a new problem. I'm more for getting down to the root of the issue and solving it there, so that you do not get a cascade of increasingly unwieldy problems. My one experience with a union was one of utter corruption where union leaders were enriching themselves by screwing the workers they were supposed to be representing.
