"Feel free to share your story about the real Walmart today and what makes you proud to be working at Walmart." Contact information for us was also posted.We received several positive-themed stories from Wal-Mart workers as a result of this plea by the company— including one from a veteran employee who bragged, "A week after I joined Walmart, my first child was born.A new report from the workers advocacy group A Better Balance alleges that Walmart consistently punishes employees for taking sick days, even if they have proper documentation from doctors.From a report: A Better Balance interviewed and surveyed more than 1,000 Walmart workers about the company's absence control program -- which awards disciplinary "points" for absences regardless of reason -- and found the retail giant to be in violation of multiple laws.Given endless work weeks, the reclaiming of emotional wholeness, and a new ideal of love as partnership, it makes a lot of sense to a lot of people--except the human resources department.In an age of full disclosure, it may be wiser anyway to meet under fluorescent light than candlelight.

One of the disabled ladies that worked as a door greeter lost her house of thirty years, just a year short of paying off her mortgage, because her hours were cut and she couldn't even eat.You see, Walmart cares about their associates and their families more than any other company that I know." (His letter is published in full at the bottom of this post, along with an image of Wal-Mart's request on its internal website.)But far more common were stories like these, all of which we received in the past few days:"The Walmart Employee website is encouraging us to refute your stories, asking us to do their PR for them and tell the stories of "the Real Walmart". Our manager said she wanted to apologize for the cut hours and she didn't want anyone going without food or necessities, so to let her know if there were problems.what if it were your husband or wife in this case and each time you shopped people stared at you or snickered.So if Scott is allowed to do this and get no reprimand from the store how can I comfortably know that my husband don't have some woman on the job, taking him home, or screwing in the employee bathroom for all I know.the woman Norma, is no looker but I guess when it is a spare piece of A** it doesn't matter.
