    the ability of these corps to pay workers like crap and force them to work in horrible conditions has spread outside of Walmart, Fast Food Workers and Warehouse workers (and let's include waiters and table busers in that group of the most exploited) and that is lowering living standards for all. If they can organise, this will shift the balance and may, just may, put a halt to the impunity in which these businesses operate and this can encourage others to fight. If these so deeply exploited workers can organise and fight, this may enable a whole new wave and revival of unionisation which will improve incomes and working conditions for all.
