classy action


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Wal-Mart is famous for the stingy pay and benefits it offers its employees. But another giant chain store, Costco, is the opposite. It's so good to its workers that some business gurus disapprove. "From the perspective of investors, Costco's benefits are overly generous," says retail analyst Bill Dreher, quoted in the Wall Street Journal. He thinks the company's benevolence depresses its stock value because investors are afraid its profit margins aren't as high as they could be. But the fact is that Costco is very successful, and its five-year growth rate has been 10.1 percent annually, better than Wal-Mart's 9.8 percent. All this is preface, Virgo, for my warning that your gifts may also be criticized in the coming week. Be unfazed, please. Have faith that the best way to build your prosperity is to cultivate your generosity.

*as she takes the heat from the "Fortune" crowd*

I love the Costco business model...I live it, I sacrifice for it, and I promote it. Don't even get me started on Wal-Mart or the others like them! LOL!

...PM Krix, and have a great day everyone.

Good luck to the Wal-Mart employees and their class-action litigation!

Keanu has turned the cheek so many times his head revolves; God love him for his Zen sensibilities and class.

In the words of my mother, widowed at age 40... "What do you mean he makes more than I do because he has a family? What do I have, puppies?"

Hell hath no fury as a female class action suit!
