A Wal-Mart worker died early Friday after an "out-of-control" mob of frenzied shoppers smashed through the Long Island store's front doors and trampled him, police said.
The Black Friday stampede plunged the Valley Stream outlet into chaos, knocking several employees to the ground and sending others scurrying atop vending machines to avoid the horde.
When the madness ended, 34-year-old Jdimytai Damour was dead and four shoppers, including a woman eight months pregnant, were injured.
The obvious is clear: unions, thanks to their useless ideas of '40 hour work weeks', have brought this man to his backside, and then had him trampled by a stampede of good capitalists. Of course, we should not actually blame the shoppers: bargain days are an essential feature of capitalism, and the way these shoppers behaved is only natural. Instead, the unions are to blame, because their policies kept workers away from the store during a time the store needed them most. If WalMart could keep its stores open 24-7, then the stores will always be open, and there will be no resulting stampede of people into the store.
If you honestly care about the future of people like Mr. Damour, then you will take away the useless 'reforms' the worthless unions have implemented. In addition, we must also extend the Taft-Hartley Act to ban unions from protesting anywhere. If you aren't willing to work at least half the week, then you don't deserve any sympathy from hard-working Americans. Free speech, just like freedom, isn't free, and it's become clear that the unions haven't earned theirs the way the rest of us have.
