yogarfield Take a deep breath and have a glass of water, sweetheart.
Void 71 I hope you ran that water through an Alex Jones-sponsored water filtration system that reduces fluoride and radioactive isotopes to non-detectable levels.
Boxhead I thought this was Walmart getting back at labor unions.
Bort That would be my first guess, though I haven't checked to see if any of the closed locations have had union rumblings.
Note that I say "any" and not "most" or "all". One of the things that union law still doesn't have a good handle on is the firing of "troublemakers", because all a business has to do is make it look non-punitive and it's entirely legit. So basically, all they have to do is hurt a bunch of other people who have nothing to do with the union, and that makes it perfectly legal. "We had to shut down that entire department because of poor performance, and the fact that a pro-union employee worked there was just a coincidence, a tragic tragic coincidence."
