Yo -
My first post here and I'm thrilled.

If ya object to parking in Wal-Mart, I won't cause of their employment practices and anti-union stance, other major retailers like Fred Meyer's who have many very large stores in the NW of the good old US of A will allow RV all nighters to stay in their lots. ;D

Have fun.

PS A good project for me in my retirement would be to collect a list of retailers who would willingly have military families with RV's stay over night on thier lots. I'll do it . . . and I'll post the results here first!!!!

Welcome!

I wasn't aware that many other larhe stores allowed RV's to spend the night in their parking lot. A list would be very helpful.

YEOWEE! Let's call it "Black-Top Parking". "Squatters" might also work. OOPS! Had to come back because I thought of another one, "Wind Fall Parking". May be the management will also see fit to add a few nice blue handicap spaces up front for "Squatters" only.

Be sure not to list any stores who don't have union shops or don't give all their employees health insurance ::) and, god forbid, - don't stay at any non-union campgrounds in lieu of parking lots...

I'm not sure that union/non-union is an example of employment practices. I worked several years at Meiers and their employment practices were worse than any sweat shop I've seen. If there was ever a need to unionization, that would be the place....after leaving them, I just don't shop there. If you don't like the employment practices of a particular organization, then don't camp there or shop there.
As far as I know, there hasn't been a need for union representation for active service members or national guard or reserves. Yet, it seems that we do all right in spite of it. IMHO unions have caused a lot of US jobs to go south or out of country because unions priced themselves out of the labor market...but that's just the way I see it.......

Unions -- why so?? The Unions did some great work at one time in our history -- but as a general statement, the union organizations have out-lived their original purpose and have now become another big business that often interferes with what otherwise might be a good employer/employee relationship when the owner of a company actually appreciates the work his employees do, and rewards them for it in ways not necessarily union-sanctioned or directed -- so why must we always "force" it ... that's beyond me in today's economy and work-force mentality.

The work force today are no longer ignorant puppets led to slaughter --most are well-educated and informed, and the United States is well on it's way toward a work-force package where each worker becomes an independent contractor, supplying his own insurance, his own tools, his own retirement program, and his own production levels, and even a new idea occasionally -- which will and should be rewarded for its performance rather than simply a daily appearance at the door.

That's it! That's it! Unionize the FAMCAMPS so we can all get the same site for the same price - just like gas. OOPS, I always get Unionize & socialize mixed up. Besides, "Homesteaders" would muck up that idea anyhow. DAH!

Well, first let me actually add to this thread and say that K-mart allows overnighting at some of it's large Super K-mart locations. Just like any other overnight parking remember to ask first.

On to Unions, the average UAW worker makes about $29 per hour that works out to about $60,000 a year before overtime, and they just went on strike so that they could not be laid off for the next 2 years. My point is that the average non union American worker makes about $30,000 a year, the average Engineer, makes about $65,000 a year, an average Doctor makes about $80,000 a year, average lawyer (not the sue happy ones) pulls in about $67,000 a year. Unions have given us a generation of people for whom there is no incentive to do more than become a union worker. Why bother going to college to become a Doctor, Lawyer, or Engineer when you can join the UAW and live just as good, and work less hours.

Thank you unions from around 1900 to 1960 for protecting the American worker from work place hazards and getting better workplace rights for all of us, you did a fine job and should be rightly proud of that.

Thank you unions from around the 1960's to present for rampant inflation, and my pakistani doctor, the Indian guy that wants my engineering job, and the legions of lawyers that have become sue happy just so that they can justify there spending all that money on college. Also thank you for the collapse of the Steel and auto industries in this country. Way to go you should be rightly ashamed of what you have become.
