Edwards the Working Man’s Man

Ask John Edwards  about minimum wage, health benefits and retirment plans. What do you think he will tell you? He is for the working man right?  He hs chided Wal-Mart in the past. In a recent conference call with the union that represents workers he told how his son stood up for the working man by reprimanding a fellow student for buying goods at Wal-Mart.

Sounds good right.

Well think again, John had an aide call Wal-Mart trying to reserve a Playstation 3 for him. Now there are three problems with this.

1. The average working man cannot afford the Playstation 3 as the average working man needs higher wages.

2. Does John feel special and that he should have the PS3 before the average working man, that Wal-Mart should honor a special request from a rich lawyer?

3. The most damning, he is supporting how Wal-Mart does business, treats employees, yet in the next breath condems them for these practices.

Way to go John Edwards, you are a Waste Of My Oxygen.

Note – This in no way reflects my opinion of Wal-Mart’s practices in employee relations/compenstation, it is solely about Mr. Edwards.
