Will Bentonville get the message?

Maybe it's the stupid idea that many of the powerful have that every union member is a Commie (which is simply not true, many if not most front line employees on shop floors and in office pools are actually social conservatives), but Wal-Mart closes one of their stores or a unit within it anytime sometime tries and succeeds in getting a union inside the doors. But if the trendlines keep continuing, they may soon have little choice but to sit down and actually negotiate liveable working conditions.

The latest victory: A Wal-Mart store in Hull, Québec; not even two weeks after a certification in Weyburn, Saskatchewan.
