Why Do Republicans/Conservatives Bend Over Backwards for Companies?

Why Do Republicans/Conservatives Bend Over Backwards for Companies?
Ever since I started to work for Walmart, I know amazing, my mom always tells me when I feel I am being treated unfairly by the company to just 'take it up the ass' so to speak.

That I shouldn't call them out on their bullshit treatment of me, by forcing me to almost choose between my job and school. Or by expecting alot from me when I don't get enough to deal with it. Or the fact I should lie just not to 'get in trouble' with them. Among other things, I seems like in her conservative mindset you are always in the wrong and the company you work for is always right. Expect when it comes to cameras then invading privacy is bad and a no-no.

I'm not entirely sure why or where this mind set comes from. The idea that you are a bad person if you know your being mistreated and do something about it.

For example, since starting work my grades in college have dropped alot as has my work ethic as I'm stressed about grades and getting my degree, top it all off with my grandfather dying an all, I haven't been in the best of mindsets. I feel work has just made it harder, as before I never had a problem until I had to work long second shift hours for four days in a row with me coming home late and being exhausted and having little freetime.
I thought it was because of these work hours I was falling behind.

My mom on the other hand seems to think work is not the problem at all, despite the evidence showing that it most likely is. And she keeps defending my works choices against me and other employees.

Is this a conservative and Republican only thing? Why do they defend a company or work place even though they might be treated like shit?

The companies own the Grim Old Party.

It's an American thing. The Republicans are probably worse, but the Democrats have done their share of harm. 

Wages have gone down, college costs have gone way up. The family that owns Walmart have become among the richest in the world by realizing that they don't have to pay you what you're worth. If you're starving, they advise you to get food stamps. They're sure not going to pay you more. 

I think the stress you're under is absolutely not your fault. It sounds to me as if you're doing your best. But American society is set up to make it difficult for people like you. I'm sorry about that.

It's not just Republicans/Conservatives who bend over backwards for companies. The problem is money in politics. Plenty of Democratic politicians bend over backwards for companies. For example, Biill Clinton getting rid of Glass Steegal or howered it's spelled. Often the so-alled Liberal media switches off when it's a Democrat because their advertisers don't want them taking about money in politics.

Because they give them money and in many cases, a job.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies.

I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

It takes money to get elected. People who invest in a candidate expect a return on their investment.

Money buys votes. Votes buys political office. Politicians want to remain employed.

Is this really a political issue or a work/parent issue?

I don't doubt you but you didn't give any specifics about your treatment by Walmart and I've never worked for Walmart so I can't really comment. You might have a shitty supervisor who does not understand the whole college/work dynamic. If they've not been to college they might be fuckin with you simply because they've not been to college. 

I worked all thru my college days but that was back in the 70's/80's. Maybe things are different now. A Walmart job may not be the best fit. I took jobs where I knew that I could study while getting paid. Night watchman/guard, night dispatcher, gas station, motel front desk, airport car rental, .................... Almost all were late night or very early AM when there were few customers. 

Quit the job before you quit college. There are always other jobs. Good luck.
I don't have an anger problem, I have an idiot problem

Start your own company. Interest rates are low for businesses. Or move to Sweden and be a parasite there.
