Re: Wal-Mart Is Facing Latest Salvo From UnionJun 19th, 2011
They are pretty handy at creating their own work using pension capital. It has saved many a plant closure that would have otherwise decimated a town or small city. If you look into what CPP is investing and what Unions are investing in and it is very much parallel.
The bottom line is that unions can not exist with out private capital to fuel the core business.
Did you get a chance to review some of the investments Unions have made into urban development. How many Union pension funds are invested in the very things that are keeping the economy going?

That's ****ing hillarious! Unions are all over the planet. Majority of investment has been coming from European UNION.
The EU is an example of a trade union in your eyes?
Talk about f*cking hilarious.
Wages were never an issue. They bascially got a handful of peanuts which barely covers inflation and that was fine by them.
Labour cost have never been a issue. Like I asked out of $500k how much was labour and materials for New Holland? I paid shipping and dealer set-up costs ontop of the purchase price as well. What are their profits per unit @ a cost of $250K
