I was simply making assumptions about you as you are about the employees. I wasn't at all speaking about employee wages, I was talking about treating employees with common human respect.
Employee's can't up and leave. Under the constitution sure, but not if they wish to pay their bills. Saying they can is about as stupid as anything I've ever seen. All I can say is, I'm really glad you're not in management. These people are being made to break their backs doing all sorts of extra tasks to the point that what they should be doing gets neglected. The one's who just whine and complain are the teenagers who want to make an easy buck. They are not the majority. I can't blame you for thinking as you do though. It's the common thought from those who are ignorant to the plights of others. Walmart's treatment of employee's is terrible and I look forward to the day they are brought down for their savagery.
Sorry gals, if I wanted to join a hippy cult, I would've started one.
Yeah, but the Walmart here in town treats their employee's terribly, and the manager, Tara, is a Jaguar driving narcissist who retaliates against employees.
That said, I continue to shop there for one reason. My father works there and the employee's wages, benefits and bonuses are contingent upon sales.
Ridiculous that even got a front page mention.
While ideal in theory, it's not reality in practice by and large. At least right now.
I stopped caring about this school board long ago. But, the most important thing in finding a school superintendent is if the school board resigns. How else will we keep them?
No no, it says "OR on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states." The word OR above describes a secondary process to call for the convention. This means,you can petition your state legislatures to call for the convention. Georgia recently passed the call for a convention and several states are well on their way, including Arizona.
What's cool about the states doing it is when all the necessary amount of states vote for the convention, the federal government cannot supersede in the process. Think of it as an emergency cord on the constitution when the federal government goes off the rails, which they have.
Congress can call for a convention if they choose. The second approach with the states is in the event that they won't or we are in dire need of change.
Here's a link about Georgia's recent passing of the measure: http://conventionofstates.com/news/georgia-house-passes-convention-states-application
According to Article V of the U.S. constitution, state legislatures can supercede Congress and call for a convention. Here's a quote:
The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.
