Because I'm sure this will be completely voluntary, and will pay a fair and just wage.

Scumbags.

    The part about overtime is a joke, Wally World does not pay over time because most of their workers never see 40 hours a week (the USA amount for a regular work week).  I am sure the employees will jump at the chance to make more money even if they have to go a bit out of their way; I just hope they calculate in how much more fuel costs and wear and tear on their vehicles they will endure to make a few more dollars.

      First and foremost, walmart must abide by all transportation rules in each state, and walmart must get all pertinent insurance information from each of the employees they will ask to deliver a customers purchases from walmart.  Each employee delivering for walmart will have to have a sign on their vehicle stating they are deriving for walmart. If the employee has no insuracne, they wont be able to participate.  Walmart will be paying the hourly wage, mileage and gas if an employee does this for walmart.

      They won't make a dime extra because of fuel/operating costs, assuming Fuck-Bag-Mart even pays them anything. (I'm sure the serfs --pardon: employees-- will be "convinced" to volunteer their time. After all, it's "on their way home," innit?)

      Also, what happens if you get into an accident with no commercial cargo insurance?

      That's right, you're liable for the loss of the cargo (and in most jurisdictions you need specific --much more expensive-- insurance for a vehicle that is used commercially. If you get into an at-fault accident without it, then at least here in Alberta, it's treated as if you have no insurance.).

      I and most of my co-workers personally got away without commercial insurance when I was a courier/messenger for a few years in the late '90s/early 2000s, (before Regime Change(TM) doubled the price of petrol literally overnight) but I don't think you can get away with that anymore, and it's just not worth the risks of liability in this day and age.

        The cost of gas and oil in America didn't come from politics but from N.I.M.B.Y.(not in my back yard) ignorant activists and the EPA - in 1973 America had 477 oil refineries, but eco activists protested any refineries trying to do upgrades or expansions.  Then with the EPA requiring unleaded gas, which is a good thing, but the gas refining formulas have a taxing time on the current remaining 286 oil refineries left in America.  Currently the refineries must produce 3 to 4 different fuel blends for each of the 4 seasons. Nearly all the current oil refineries are working 24/7 - 365, so when a few go down for repaires or maintenance it effects the price we pay.

        this is why in America the price of gas fluctuates so much towards end of each season because the refineries are in the process of making gas for the next season going from winter to spring as an example.

        america could cut the cost of gas by going to one year round fuel blend but the eco-nut activists such as Obama and al Gore aka Igor......, want the price to go up because they want people to turn to the govt for all the answers.  Every time the prices go up the only group of people that are hurt financially are the low income to poor people.  Such as the soda tax in Illinois the poor were hit hard by that tax.

        employees of a business are a like a two edged sword, they are an asset but they are also a cost on the bottom line for any business.  A person does not go into business thinking "hey I'm going to hire people to work for me, employees are a by product of being successful.

          Exactly.  Which is why tax breaks for corporations have no influence on the number of people corporations hire.  They will only hire the people necessary for the company to make money and not one more.

          I don't agree with these taxes; education is the better way to get people to eat better.  However, if they make the decision to drink some of the worst things you can put in your body, then that is their choice.

          The main influence on the price of petrol in the US is speculation.  Bill Clinton; a democrat, removed the law that prevented speculation in petrol trading and the result is that cost went up.  Most buyers of oil never even take possession of that oil, they buy and trade oil all on paper based on speculation of what the market will do.  What we pay has little to do with supply and demand; although if price goes high enough, people cut back on unnecessary trips and petrol does have a shelf life.

        You are correct, my sister operated a business and was required to register her vehicle as a commercial one and had to pay more for her insurance. However, I bet the Evil Empire will not explain any of this to their serfs.
