...everyone knows that it will soon happen, just like Twinkies. I don't think that the fury of the people who have lost their Twinkie jobs has been been unleashed yet. Maybe it will not, who knows in this day and time when a reprobate like Pres zer0 could be elected for a second go-round at "fundamentally changing America"...as if there were something wrong with it to begin with.

As Union Nears Win, Wal-Mart Closes Store
by Adam Geller
NEW YORK - Wal-Mart Stores Inc. says it will close one of its Canadian stores, just as some 200 workers at the location are near winning the first-ever union contract from the world’s largest retailer.
Wal-Mart said it was shuttering the store in Jonquiere, Quebec, in response to unreasonable demands from union negotiators that would make it impossible for the store to sustain itself.
Maybe after the 79 weeks of unemployment benefits runs out.
“I wish that Wal-Mart would just shut down the affected stores. It wouldn’t hurt their business at all and would absolutely send a message to the unions...”
Not to mention the people in the community who would show up looking for bargains only to find a notice that the store is no longer open. I’d love to see what the community would think what that happened.
Just fire them.. There will be thousands more happy to have the job.
