What a thing to complain about….

MESSAGE TO UBER: HIRING A WALMART EXECUTIVE IS INSULTING TO ALL OF AMERICA’S WORKERS

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Making Change at Walmart Director Randy Parraz issued the following statement in response to Uber’s consideration of former Walmart chief information officer, Karenann Terrell, in its search for a #2 under Chief Executive Travis Kalanick:

“That Uber would consider a former Walmart executive to help in the field of ‘complicated labor and operational structures,’ is not only insulting to the thousands of Americans paid so poorly by Walmart that they rely on government assistance to survive, but is also threatening to the advancement of American wage and job standards as a whole.

So, err, senior female executive doesn’t cut it any more?

  1. The left have made enemies of everyone and everything, there are no more enemies left to make. So they are turning on their own. It is the way of things.

  2. I really don’t get how it’s Walmart’s fault that the government provides additional assistance to its employees. Walmart never asked for that help.

  3. Walmart increased the pay of all its lowest paid workers last year. I’m not sure where it puts them in the rankings but they aren’t the low paybirganisation they once were.

  4. The average across the industry (Walmart, Tesco, Carrefour etc) is about 60 applications for each vacancy. Funny how people want to work for baby eating slavers isn’t it?

  5. I would have thought if they don’t have a problem retaining staff you are not underpaying.

    Secondly the are the largest emploer of part time and casual workers, actually a good parallel with Uber.

  6. The Left have thrown the working white man under the bus, women and gays are going now, non Islamic ethnic minorities will be next. They are betting the farm on the Islamists, which is ironic, because if the Islamists win, the Left (white men mainly) will be up against the wall with everyone else, unless they convert.

  7. Funnily enough, I started on contract to Uber this morning. As a cis white male, I’ve probably damned them already 🙂

  8. At this point, Uber might as well just embrace the evil.

    There’s 2 approaches to attacks by the bien pensant left: you go the McDonalds route and try and get people coming in with kale, or you go the Ryanair route and tell these people to go fuck themselves, understanding fully that these are not your customers and never will be.

    Took an Uber a couple of weeks ago for the first time. Won’t be my last. And the driver said he preferred it because despite getting slightly lower rates, he got a lot more fares.

  9. Gamecock – I believe that Hilary was on the Walmart Board of Directors, back when Bill was the Governor of Arkansas; I don’t think she was ever an executive.

    An executive is involved in the day-to-day operation of the company. Non-executive directors are a standard thing. They sit on the board and provide advice and support to the executives but are, in theory, independent of the executives and something of a check on the for the benefit of the shareholders.

    So, with respect, you see it wrong. Most companies with any kind of scale have directors who are absolutely and uncontorversially not executives.
