Picketers for Hire
This is amusing.

Clearly the area is hard up for jobs if netting $35 dollars for standing in the sun all day is worth doing. Perhaps they should be happy that the hundredish people have jobs at all.
I pay 60 dollars a week for insurance for sarah and I. Granted as a percentage that is less but still.
If you don't want to work for a place don't. If you don't want to support a business than don't shop there.
People protest Walmarts coming to their small town because it will take out all of the mom and pop shops like Walmart employees roundup townsfolk at gunpoint to force them to shop there.
In a time where so many people are complaining about jobs going overseas maybe they should be celebrating every Walmart opening. They may be crappy jobs, but a crappy job is better than no job.
If Walmart forces you out of business then you weren't running a very good buisiness. Walmart got to where it is by investing in it's IT department and becoming as efficient as possible. The secong you have your item scanned at the registed an order is placed to the local distrubution center to replace it. The system allows them to simultaniously buy in bulk and cut down on storage.
Personally I can't stand Walmart, I feel dirty just going in there. Target is basically the same prices and leaps and bounds above Walmart image wise in my opinion.
Lastly, if a union hires you for a crappier job than the one you're protesting doesn't that union, almost by definition, lose ALL credability?

ps. In regards to the not being able to beat Walmart. Obviously you can't outbuy and therefor out price Walmart. But you can out service walmart. Maybe you can't beat their price on Grocery's, but you could offer online shopping or home delivery. Old people buy the same thing every week, so once a week you could show up with that stuff and collect right at their door.
You can't beat Walmart pricewise, but you can out service Walmart fairly easily.
You could sell and install whole home theater packages rather than have a 17 year old who doesnt know anything in the electroincs.
You can offer free local tech support, and if possible home visits for computers.
