When people steal and destroy items at Walmart it is a loss for the company. Do you know who pays for that, we do, the associate at Walmart, we make so much money at Walmart that the company takes it out of our sometime $100.00 bonus.
We cannot say anything to the people that steal but you can the shoppers at Walmart can stop this theft just speak up and report the theft, call a cop on your cell phone. We work hard we try to keep a smile on our faces but, it is very hard, The public and the Company work against us.

How could there be a class action suit against Walmart when neither the customers or the employees are classy.

If you don't know what your talking about shut up! Would you work for nothing $. Would you work off the clock, that's what it is about. We are home owners tax payers and we crap just like you.

Your comments support my feelings about your lack of class. Incidentally, if all your complaints are true why not just go get a job somewhere else.

Reading your comments I can see you lack even more, you must hang around Walmart just to watch. I know you shop there I've seen people like you.
I am willing to bet you are over weight and ugly!

To An Associate (spelled correctly), Dark Comedy has nailed it and it's obvious from you comments. Most of employees at Walmart can't find their way home much less find anything in the store. I go to Walmart only because its 10 at night and I can't find what I'm looking for anywhere else. Additionally, I think fat and ugly is a prerequisite to Walmart employment.

I think you may have upset Dark Comedy but you do prove his/her point with your lousy command of the English language. Keep your name badge on if you get lost on the way home it may help.

Got to love this website, someone writes about a topic and he/she receives comments that does not relate to the matter at hand, what a bunch of low class! Why don't you all take up a sport or take a walk.

I do not know how I found this link, but I just wanted to add that lots of people can't finish lunches in their jobs. At one of my jobs it was encouraged to eat at your desk and take small bites in case the phone rang! Not the relaxing lunch most dream about. I too received about $100 bonus (before taxes), so the hard work did not pay off. It happens in a lot of workplaces, and if you do not like it you must move on and find a different place of employment (like I did) where the employer respects you and you will feel much better. Obviously Wal Mart does not respect..they'll learn if all their employees leave and none fill the open positions...a law suit tho? I don't think that'll work. They have enough money to pay off this woman, which is prob. all she's looking for.

(Dark Comedy) What is your age, because you sound like a kid in the 6th or 7th grade for your comments (class action) Sounds like making fun. Also the (wal-mart customer)Carry your name badge!!! What's your IQ.
No matter where you shop Lowe's, Home depot, the product all comes from the same place.
