During my rounds to the worksite that I am incharge of. I drove past the Wal-Marts located at the 202 & Dobson, Southern & Gilbert, both in Mesa, AZ. I then drove past the Wal-Mart in Payson, AZ. on my way home. I did not see any form of protest. I did see a bunch of people that appeared tobe shopping though.

The very people who believe the "We'll be forced to fire people" threat of the billionaires who don't want to pay fair wages or provide safe working conditions are the ones who will suffer for believing that lie. Profit is not what motivates the Waltons- greed is. They are depending on the working class to divide and turn on itself so the focus is taken off of where the blame really lies. And, unfortunately, Conservatives are quite willing to beat the drum for them.

Unskilled, and low skilled workers are always easily replaced. Why shouldn't the company look at them as easily replaceable, when they are so easily replaced?
