Wal-Mart, Kohls, Toys R Us add seasonal workers
Are the retailers taking on too big of a risk?
Just what America needs... tens of thousands of temporary jobs at Minimum Wage pumping foreign made garbage pulled from giant warehouses and priced to undermine any new enterprise trying to compete. With most American households purging trash and trinkets to clean their houses out, this holiday season should be illuminating. Expect two types of shoppers... people using other people's credit cards and grand-people ignoring their suppression impact on our Society, attempting to bribe love from the grandkids. I won't shop Wal-Mart. It is as anti-American a business as they come. May they get stuck with floor-to-ceiling inventory nobody buys.
How to make a better Holiday Season for yourself and your family: Have a no cell phone day and get the kids out of their bedrooms. Bundle up and go for a family walk for at least a half hour, strive for an hour. Have a neighborhood Hot Cup Day where various neighbors serve something hot that goes in a mug or cup. Play Board Games together. Play Card Games together. Do something that requires-- together. Watch a movie, shut it off as it ends and TALK about it together. Stop trying to buy or get for satisfaction. Handheld devices are destroying America. Make the Holiday Season a time of year to stay clear of texting and staring into little screens and calling that-- living. It isn't. Go make fun doing something that makes you naturally happy!!!
