Wal-Mart versus “union leaders”

Here are some quotes from http://www.forwalmart.com/atstake/
I wanted to save them here for historical purposes.

What’s At Stake

Working families choose to shop at their neighborhood Wal-Mart stores to save money, save time and to get everything they need in one convenient place. And associates choose to work at Wal-Mart because it offers good wages, solid benefits and a chance at a career. But some union leaders in Washington, D.C. don’t want working families to benefit from Wal-Mart. These union leaders want to tell us — America’s working families — where to shop and work.

The attack campaign waged on Wal-Mart by union leaders has one central goal: to unionize Wal-Mart’s workforce. Though they claim to want to help Wal-Mart become a better company, organizing the company’s 1.3 million U.S. associates, and collecting the millions of dollars in dues that would come along with such organization, is the sole motivation of these critics. That’s why they’re going after this company. With tens of millions of dollars at their disposal, they are determined to waste member dues to attack Wal-Mart. And they’re doing so while thousands of union jobs are disappearing and while union members shop at Wal-Mart in large numbers to save money. That’s wrong.

Despite this barrage of criticism, working families everywhere know what the unions won’t acknowledge: Wal-Mart is good for America’s working families. Working families continue to shop at Wal-Mart and line up by the thousands for jobs at Wal-Mart stores because Wal-Mart continues to save working families money and provide good jobs with competitive pay and affordable health care. It really is time for the union leaders to let working families decide where to shop and work.

Wal-Mart also brings much-needed jobs to America’s communities, affordable health care to American families, and generous donations to charities across the country.
