Today, you should buy something at Walmart. Anything.
Why? Because a union is staging a walk-out. My guess: you will notice nothing different.
You still won’t be able to find anyone to tell you on which aisle the item you are looking for is available.
When you finally find it through trial and error — mostly error — you will see three-quarters of the check-out lines’ lights turned off.
In short, it will be business as usual at Walmart.
But as a veteran of the right-to-works laws — which the good guys won decades ago — I feel it is my duty to cross a picket line, even when the line is invisible.
The union wants us to believe that the line is there, so I feel compelled to cross it. It’s tradition.
The union thinks thousands of Walmart employees will walk out in protest. But Walmart employs over 1.4 million people in the United States.
So, I invite you to go shopping today at Walmart. Go see how well the trade union movement is doing today. You won’t see a thing.
It will be a sight for sore eyes.
