You seem bent on arguing. I didn't post this to argue with anyone.2) Should the uppermost management and top executives at WalMart forego some of their own income, as a kindness, in order to pay store level associates more sufficiently?..
Is this survey from a bunch of whining cry babies? It seems like a Sales associate pity me party here.
Let's get a few facts straight.
Walmart makes a net profit of 34,000 every single minute. Nobody has to give up any income for them to give everyone a raise. More than enough money for everyone if Walmart decided to distribute it out more.
3) Are you willing to forego some of your own income to compensate store level associates better?..
Some of the questions are covetous, and a thought that upper level management do not deserve what they are making, or a thought that it's wrong that I get paid so little as a store Associate when the guys on top make all the big bucks.
Go find another job!!! That solves the problem. wow.
This sense of entitlement is devilish. Jesus even told a parable about this and the bottom line is you know what they are going to pay you to do the work they ask you to do. They are not forcing you to stay there.
My Son is a Sales Associate at Walmart. He handles lots of money, has to make decisions for cashiers, and controls much of what is going on up front. If the lines get to long, he gets his butt handed to him for something he had no control over. They often have him do one thing, but blame him if something not related is not done.
All for less than 10.00 hr.
McDonald's in Seattle is paying 15.00 hr.
I asked him yesterday if He thought about going for a Salary promotion, or switching Jobs. He works so hard for so little, and runs around like a cat with a mouse trap clamped to it's tale. (Don't ask me how I know what that looks like )
He said, I believe this is where God wants me now, it's not about the pay, and if God says move, I move or ask for promotion.
That is a great answer as it's never about the pay, but are you where God said be? If your dissatisfied, always frustrated at where your working, then there might be no grace to work there as your out of the place God would have you.
Adding dollars to your pocket, does not make being at the wrong place, working the wrong Job, obedient to where God would have you. Money does not fix spiritual issues. If you are where God said be, then your working for the Lord, and the Lord always meets your needs and there is grace to be where God said be.
You can make millions, or make 9.00hr. None of that matters if you not in your place, as you will be dissatisfied, unfulfilled, feeling like your not accomplishing anything in life, and nothing for eternal reward as your own works get burned up, and count for zero.
No, I am just confused as to the reason you posted it. It seems like a bunch of Sales Associates banned together to make right the evils of Walmart.You seem bent on arguing. I didn't post this to argue with anyone.
On that note.I'm doing a thread on social security dry in 13 yearsI think the upper levels should take a pay cut to make life better for the lower levels. They do that kinda thing in Japan, I think. I read elsewhere that a lot of lower level wal mart employees are on state assistance, so...tax payers are subsidizing wal-mart, basically. For full time employees. Ridiculous.
Okay. For the record, (and I might be sticking my neck out here), I wrote this app, for one purpose, which is stated at the webpage posted above. I wrote it without foreknowledge of anyone else. There is no group of associates bound together in any manner.No, I am just confused as to the reason you posted it.

If your a Sales associate, then I feel for you. I know what my son goes through with little appreciation. My son gets it from upper management, and gets it from the mean customers who want to price match everything and do what they can to get free'bee's . Doing manager Work, for less than what they pay at McDonald's.
Well, it sounded like you have some valued interest in this topic. No doubt Sales assosates are asked to do things when they are suppose to be watching something else, given great power over money and people, but not paid for the awesome responsibility that other companies pay employee's who hold the same level of authority and responsibility.It is certainly true that, "It is not by might nor by power," but it is also true that "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." And if anyone is a slave when he is called, and has opportunity for freedom, he should take it.
Often the Strawberries have mold............ The produce needs help. It is, what it is though. Despite the mold, and many we have thrown away, we still buy them.im not a fan of wally world, but I have never worked there. I have had some bad products sold to me. just my experience.
Profits are what's left after expenses are paid, including salaries and wages. Most of that goes to the company (capital) and stockholders, if my memory serves me well.nobody at Walmart needs to take a pay cut to give associates a pay raise. At 34,000 a min profit, Walmart has more than enough coming in.
Looking at numbers now. 600 million to open like 30 smaller stores this year, not counting the 129 billion for 12 months in profit which is awesome. My understanding that does not include paying employee's but just product.Profits are what's left after expenses are paid, including salaries and wages.

Well, as an accounting major, if profits are 129 billion, and only 600 million before profits, was spent opening 30 stores. That's less than 1% of profits opening those new stores. Hmmm? I wonder what the big guys got paid? If they had opened more stores, it might have been more justifiable. I'd bet it's more than 600 million alltogether.Looking at numbers now. 600 million to open like 30 smaller stores this year, not counting the 129 billion for 12 months in profit which is awesome.
Help me understand this. You mentioned about what the "Big guys" got paid.Well, as an accounting major, if profits are 129 billion, and only 600 million before profits, was spent opening 30 stores.

Help me understand this. You mentioned about what the "Big guys" got paid.
Twice in your statement on the website you mention the "Big Guys" having to give up some pay, as an act of "kindness" to give the lower folks more pay. Do we assume they are not kind already?
You refer to the upper management as "Big shots" in post 7 This statement is made by folks who feel less than others, and envious of what "Big Shots" have.
I am detecting bitterness of what someone else is perceive to have, a sense of someone who feels shorted, but knows they should not feel that way. A sense of some entitlement that was never promised. It's pretty serious to think someone should give a dime of their money to someone who has agreed to work for a certain wage.
You used the Word "Slave" How where you kept hostage and as a slave?
Then we use some justification to be like the rest of the world quoting some scriptures. We have lots of scripture not to envy, to be content, to be obedient in those of authority over us, praying for them.
And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny. And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house, Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
What is the root of this here? Holding onto this can effect and make rotten other things in your life. What's up? A slave?
im familiar with that. but well if one has stocks in companies and they are part of your retirement., it tends to make on pause. yes there are greed in business( I don't have any trust fund stocks in wally world.) but to get the amount of a decent pension it takes on your part over a million dollars saved. at time of retirement that isn't a lot to live off of .Have you read the story of the rich man and Lazarus?
while im not a fan of wal mart. I will say this since I work for the often haters of Walmart in print. the media that points out their sins is also doing the same thing. is it fair to pay me .126 cents per paper to deliver then at the same time charge me for missing that person, we paper five dollars? or how about they don't have to pay any benefits including obamacare because we are independent contractors. so forgive me if I don't see Walmart as some do in this thread. its more about dividing and turning americans against each other then actually paying a man honest wages.Have you read the story of the rich man and Lazarus?
