i know a woman who has been told to come to work at 8:00pm work until 2:00am, and then back at 7:00am till 3:00pm. then she will have tue,wed,and thur. off...so she will not be getting any hours this week but what she does get will all be in one day...so i understand walmart will make a killing in one day and there poor workers will get nothing..the should at least get overtime for all they work after 8 hours in one day..
Walmart time clocks roll over at midnight so she will have to take her lunch break for one hour after midnight which will give her 4 hours on one day and she will also have to lose an hour for lunch on the next clock in which means she will only be working for 8 hours on the next clock in. That's how they manage to keep from paying overtime.

they ain't Union!! Can't strike, but can quit.
BUT, I do think if the community would come together and Boycott Walmart for a week to show our support of their workers who deserve better pay and benefits, as it use to be. Of Course,can't get all the community for justa week not togo in there.
end results could be much like HOSTESS

Worked for Walmart for 5 years and know exactly what they do to hourly wage employees and no one is complaining about working weekends, nights or holidays you idiot. How would you like to have your hours cut from 40 hours to 18 or 20 hours just because the company wants to cut your vacation hours or sick leave, or avoid giving you benefits. I find it amazing that some of you can be so callous. I have an excellent college education and started my career as part of the management with Walmart. Because how I was told to treat the hourly wage employees; I could not lower my standards to meet their criteria. I will not work for a company that makes you treat your fellow workers like dogs. Sounds to me like some of you should apply for work with this company, you would probably fit right in.
I think th IDIOT IS YOU ,I work for wal mart, and they never cut my hours, if you work at walmart you know isnt true , part time employee can join to have health benefits, and people who is willing to work weekends, they have the hours, what I see is people with out eduction wants a scheduled monday to friday, just mornings, and full time hours, iyou re or were managment with walmart you know you are A LIER.

Your total ignorance about my life is laughable. I have been in upper management now for 25 years with a VERY profitable company and make well over $!00,000.00 a year plus bonus twice a year, with health and retirement benefits. There are company's in America that are major money makers and don't find it necessary to treat their employees the way WalMart treats theirs. There are lots of ways of making money from inside the company without slave labor. Walmart owns it own sweat shops in China, Pakistan etc. and pay the workers over there as little as a $1.00 a day that's why they have so much foreign inventory to sell to the American people and that's why they can undersell the mom and pop stores they have managed to put out of business. I imagine that most of you that get on here and bad mouth the people that are struggling to make a better work environment and conditions are the same ones that voted for Romney the Bain Capital company harvester, that just like Walmart invests in foreign countries and wants American workers to accept the same conditions that they use in other countries. Or you could just be jobless losers that think by bad mouthing working people it makes you important.
in THIS COMPANY WERE YOU WORK RIGHT NOW , IS A UNION INVOLVED? couse if it is a union involved you wont have a job.o just wait. your 100.000 will be flyng so soon

You need to learn to spell and stay off the booze and drugs. Walmart doesn't tolerate either one. Everyone that works for walmart if they are willing to pay for their health coverage is allowed to do so but it is shitty coverage and almost useless. Keep your head up your ass or in the bottle and you will be fine. Some of the hardest working and honest people I have ever worked with has worked for Walmart but the intelligent ones know to get out and not let themselves be used.

Do you use your really name here? I dont drink and do drugs, if you are writing in here and go a little fast you will have a misspelling, you will understand,if you are intelligent like you are yelling, maybe the one who need a bottle or something in their ass is you, couse you came out with. Every company even by contract is using somebody to do a job of course for a payment. it is up to the person accept it. I work at heb and wal mart , and they pay the same depend on your position. why the union isnt attack in heb, jc penney etc etc . lett me tell you why . becouse the union financial agenda will be fatter. you stated this big companies hurt mom and pops little stores, now we listen to mom and pops, why all this people didnt listen to mom or dad when dad was telling their children to go the school and have education for them not to end working in a companies like this. and have a better benefits and better hours.

Drunkdurd and Lilla, wtf? Are we supposed to read that? Proper spelling and punctuation are vey important. Yes, when you go fast you make mistakes but that's why we've got a thing called proof reading. It's a beautiful thing.

Have the impression that Concerned Citizen, Lilla and Drunkdurd are all the same person and probably a mexican illegal which makes them perfectly happy to take american jobs and take any shit that WalMart wants to dish out. Drunkdurd makes the comment that he is working two jobs so of course he doesn't have to worry about Walmart cutting his hours since he is obviously not getting full time anyway.

You are a idiot if you think I would honestly believe you that you have that kind of background. You are spitting out tipical UNION talking points which tells me you are nothing more than a liberal idiot who is ignorant in every sense of the word. You are the one who voted for the current president, who raised my taxes to pay for health care for all Americans including yourself. You either work at walmart or work for some union who wants to get into walmart so they can get walmart workers hard earned money in union dues each month. Don't take from the little man. Unions, go out and earn a actual living instead of taking in union dues from real workers, and promising them the world, while only delivering them a slice of pie.

Really DON'T care what any of you believe. I have found that all the Romney Maniacs can spout is RABID DOG ignorance. You are real good at calling anyone that didn't fall for his lies; names and imply that they must be moochers or belong to a union or are socialists. I don't belong to a union, pay for my own health care and if you were very intelligent you would know that unless you are getting paid more than 250,000 your taxes have not been raised at this time and probably won't be.
All the losers of this passed election can do is blame other people for Romney losing the election when he couldn't open his mouth without putting his foot in it. He was hoping that there were enough uneducated and easily led voters to fall for his lies and false campaign ads.

Why is there no stink about Sears, Kmart,Kolhs, Macy's, Penny's,every gas station,dining establish and grocery store on the planet being open but Walmart is being so mean because they have people working? It's retail, hello! Anyone who works retail knows this and if they don't they don't need to pull the "poor pitiful me"card.

Because walmart has over 100,000,000 employees And they prefer to only buy from China A Communist run country that enslaves its people in there walmart factory's, Not to mention what walmart has done to the textile jobs & other manufacturing jobs in the USA! They are a greedy cancer on the world & monopolize the retail industry & should be broken up just like the government did in the 1980s to Bell telephone....

"let it like it is"

If you even really work for walmart you would make a good "pusher"
In walmarts slave factory's in china! You have that master attitude down good! How strong is your arm for beating workers over the back when they get tired or want to spend time with there family??

""If you don't want the job go look for a nice Mon- Fri,7-4, all holidays off kinda job,there are tons of those out there.""

>>You know damn good & well there are no jobs like that anymore because of that giant greedy socialist walmart broke them by cheating using china slave labor!! So you have a happy holiday A-Hole!

<quoted text>No the problem is that ppl just dont want to work and need to have some excuse not to work. Actually Walmart pays the same as any other retail stores.I know this because I have worked at other retail stores and actually making more at Walmart than I did there Secondly they even include health benefite for part time associates which as far as I know no other company does. Try working for Kroger (which is a union job) and u dont get any health benefits at all. And the junk about being forced to work off the clock is total BS. If u work off the clock at Walmart u will be fired on the spot. There are some who are happy to have a job there cause in some places jobs are few and far between

You are truly ignorant. The US SUPREME COURT said that all the penalties and fees in the health care bill were taxes, so that means that if you make $8.00 a hour or $10,000 dollars a hour your taxes are going up. While were at it the health care bill was said to cost $700 billion when it was rammed down our throats, now the CBO estimates it to cost nearly $2 trillion dollars a year, that includes the cuts that were made to Medicare to help pay for it. That's right Medicare. Medicare is for the elderly who can't work, and didn't make $250,000 a year, and who actually need help. Go tell those people thanks for giving up their part in medicare, so you don't have to pay for you health insurance, someone who by your own account is able to work. Talk about your lies and falling for them, well I think if you did any reserch at all you would have seen the lies rather quickly. So go thank your union buddies for lying to you about the liar we now have in office, and explain why the unemployment rate is still %7.9 in the US. You should be thanking Walmart for giving jobs to people instead of bashing them, at least they care enough about people to tell them what they are going to get right up front, so you can make a inteligent choice as to whether to work for them or not, it is YOUR choice, not walmart forcing a job on you! The biggest problem with this country today is that the younger people think they should get something for nothing, and we should all pay for it, well I for one am sick of my taxes going to idiots like yourself.

Read somewhere that "Ignorance is Bliss" so you must be one supremely happy SOB. Your kind of Republican is what is causing the cancer in our government. Come on 2014!! Walmart would be treating American workers JUST like they do the workers in China and Pakistan if they were allowed to get by with it; and people as blind as you; are what they are counting on to get it done. Once again No one but me pays for my health care so stop kick a dead horse and also you are discussing a Republican majority Supreme Court. If the truth were known; more than likely, it's my taxes that is going to some program that you or yours benefits from, since I and my family have never had to use any type of government assistance. Now I'm done with this got a job to get back to; so, All of you have safe and happy holidays.
