I remember that like it was yesterday. To hell with it Wal-Mart will buy the damn town. We’ll shut them down. And we used to drive through towns going 6 months, 3 months, 6 months is when they’ll be closing.
Why is it that a corporation that in 2003 had an outstanding $240 billion in sales will not provide a livable wage and affordable health care for their employees? There’s no where around that there’s a company that makes this much money and still turns around and makes their associates go to the state for aid.

They taught me how to profile people. Of course I didn’t know that was the term then. And it was identifying people that were the strongest representator?s or a petition to organize or at least get a vote. You walk up to a couple of associates, they’re both talking, and they walk away from each other…they gotta’ go. They’re conspiring to do something.
