during her interview, when informed of the hours she would be worjking, the wages and the benefits, she had the right to get up and leave...did she not? i'm aware that when a job is desperately needed, people will accept the most undesirables ones just to get an income.
Oh during the interview they blew smoke up her a**. They needed "smart" people to work in the deli so they were going to pay her $1.00 more on the hour. She would work the day shift - 5:00 am to 2:00pm. It was a brand new store and she worked ONE day shift. Then they started making up the rules as they went along. She had to close most nights at 11:00pm. She had to have the deli cleaned and everything put away and be out by 11:00. Ha. The deli didn't close until 11:00. But if she would stay and clean up....she would be paid overtime (verbal agreements are NOT kept and you can't prove you were told that).
They began with 8 deli workers and when my daughter quit they were down to 3. One quit on the first day....went to lunch and didn't return.
She called wage and hour (the federal government worker protection agency) and the state labor board many times (both agencies) and has yet to hear back from them. She actually got to speak to a human being one time and they said they would look into her complaints and get back with her. She was sent paper work to fill out.....nothing has come of that. That was seven months ago. Really???? they will get right on it won't they?
She was never paid for one hour overtime! She has a baby and had to pay a babysitter for those extra hours though.
Oh there are people who like working at Walmart because they have never worked any place where you were treated like a human being before. Or they are married and have a second income coming in and just work because they want to.
If you think it is ok for you and me to pay for Walmarts workers to have medical benefits (welfare) when it is a multi-billion dollar company, then go ahead and shop there. They will NEVER get a penny from me and I will never pass up an opportunity to tell someone about them. I show the Walmart movie EVERY chance I get.
Everything in that store is made in China. Target, K-mart, Krogers, Marsh, Meijers, etc. can't compete (they pay their workers a decent wage). Walmart has caused so many businesses to close it is really scary. When there is NO competition will they still be so cheap? They will be able to charge any amount for anything because you will have no choice but to pay it - there will be no where else to shop.
Many cities are stopping them from building in their city. I think this is great.
One more thing. Ever noticed how big their parking lot is? They have surveilence camera's but won't pay anyone to watch them. Employees have to park way out away from the store. They are advised to walk out with other employees and never to walk alone. Many times there is no one to walk with and HAVE to walk alone. More crime is committed in Walmart's parking lot than any other place of business. We are talking robberies and rapes. Does anybody care? Walmart sure doesn't. It might cost them some money.
