The company is denying it did anything wrong and appealing the state's ruling. In the meantime the company is pressuring us to drop our complaints and we don't know if we will be fired. Walmart has done nothing.

If you have cable with CURRET TV, watch a program called "WalMart: The High Cost of Low Prices" which really exposes WalMart and their dirty tricks when it comes to employees! This is NOT a good company. I refuse to shop there.

Done. I'm not sure who has Current TV anymore as it was bought out by Al Jazeera and my cable company has removed the channel from my listing. I think that is why Current TV was removed, it was doing too many programs that was attacking the Corporate Monsters and the Oligarchy.

I question why it was bought out as it was one of the most hard hitting stations we had, more so than MSNBC which is reigned in by it's Corporate Sponsors. Al Jazeera TV, here in the USA, is to be a watered down version of itself from what I've been reading by those who watch such things. In any case I have neither channel with my Cable Company anymore.

Signed & noted. Thanks, Angelika. I don't shop there either, nor does my family.
I was a bit surprised to read Dandelion's comment that she no longer has CurrentTV. I heard NY shut it down, but didn't know it ended other places, too. Comcast still carries it here in So. AZ. Eliot Spitzer's great show has now gone to Fugelsang, who's surprised me with some great segments and guests. But, Spitzer was back as a guest on this show last night. The Young Turks always has some great info, and I hope Al-Jazeera keeps it. Even if it's "watered down," it should still be less corporate than msnbc.

Through their WEALTH, Gillian! Same way ALL rotten individuals and corporations get away.
Even worse: Obama plans to nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the president of the Walmart Foundation, as director of the Office of Management and Budget.
The WALMART foundation has given massive grants to various groups, "Friends of NRA" among them!

Alice Schafer,

Here is a hyperlink to the movie you asked people to watch:

Walmart: The High Cost Of Low Prices FULL MOVIE

FYI: Walmart is very abusive towards their suppliers. They demand lower prices and don't pass it on towards the consumer. (I do know this for a fact and cannot say why!)

If you look at the packages that Walmart sells, you would notice that you are not really getting a good deal. I can go into a regular store and pickup a case of coke that has 24 cans... Can you do that in Walmart?

The answer is no. You can't!

Why is it that some of the richest people in this country own Walmart?

Dandelion,

You are more than welcomed. It is a long movie and I don't know if people would actually take the time to watch it. If they did watch, they would never ever shop in a WalMart again!

The average WalMart worker makes less than $15,000 dollars a year. They can not afford WalMarts Healthcare plan because it is so very expensive. WalMart managers have a list of State and Federal agencies that the WalMart Associate can go to for WIC, Medicaid, Food Stamps, Home Heating Assistance and the list goes on and on. Walmart's plan for workers is to have the Tax Payer pay for their needs. If an employee works 30 minutes of overtime, the manager goes in under a secret password and deletes the time!

Workers in Factories are told to lie about their wages and hours worked during inspection times. They are given fake payslips to show WalMart executives. That toy that was bought cost WalMart .18 cents and they sold it for over $13 dollars... while factory workers put in 12 to 14 hour days!

Judges in the United States have stated pattern after pattern of perjury, deception, deliberate withholding of documents.

Security cameras are installed to monitor employees for Union Activities.

WalMart will not listen to a petition. I am not saying not to sign this one, I just know that it doesn't matter to them and if you watch the movie, you will understand why.

When people are on minimum wage, the shop at WalMart and think they save money. Until people stop going to WalMart and the big Box Stores, nothing will change!

If people want to know how to post a video or hyperlink on Care2, you can ask your Care2 friends that you trust. You can also send me a note and I can send you the code which is very easy.

You can also go to my Care2 page and look at my website, I did an entire page on how to do this stuff with photos, examples and instructions. Posting a YouTube music video on a friends page is very easy. Don't be afraid to ask people for help. Once you learn you will be shocked at how easy it is!

Note: If I post the code here, it won't show up but I will try to break it up for those who want to learn

Name that you want to call it goes here... Care2 Loves Petitions

The code above is all one solid line no breaks or spaces. It is that easy.

I won't promote my website here but... this is a link that shows how the HTML code looks:

I hope this helps people!

Retailers are among the worst employers in the United States. The pay is usually not good, they offer little or no overtime, have moderate benefits at best and frequently cripple and injure their employees. One only has to look at how many individuals have suffered musculoskeletal injuries due to lack of proper staff for the job at hand at companies such as Home Depot to see that this is an issue for all of us, as these employees will often end up in entitlement programs being taken care of by taxpayers when these companies should have exercised responsible leadership and not broken the backs of people working for them

Jamie,

One of the worst, besides Wal-Mart, is the Sears Holdings Corporation which owns Sears and Kmart.

As you mentioned, the pay is lousy which any Kmart employee can attest too.

But did you know that at places like Sears, the people on the floor are not payed an hourly wage?

They are paid by commission and if they don't make enough to meet minimum wage, then they are paid minimum wage... If Sears has a worker who has to be paid minimum wage, they will fire the person for not meeting sales goals!

Most of the major stores like Sears do the same thing!

I hate Walmart-they treat their employees like dirt and carry nothing but cheap junk. They also ran every close by grocery store out of business. At the moment because I take care of my Mom and she will not leave the house, I am forced to buy some groceries there as it is the only full grocery store close by. The next closest is 40 minutes away. The Fruth Pharmacy here started carrying a few groceries shortly after Walmart ran the local grocery store out of business. Started with milk, bread, eggs in one refrigerator unit and a little cereal and snacks. People were so grateful and started buy large amounts of the few items they had so Fruth now has an entire double aisle of food including organic food (YAY!) and added a freezer full of ice cream, etc. Now-if they only had fresh fruit and veggies-I would never have to go to Walmart again. They sell lots of food and get lots of well deserved thank yous from customers. Fruth also pays and treats their employees well.

Things were different when Sam was alive. As things have changed the people have been treated very unfairly, women make less than men, hours are restricted for work limited people so they do not receive any benefits, which allows them to receive Aid. WalMart does not to be in MY NEIGHBORHOOD!!! Even when they want to work 40 they are limited! I do feel bad for these people hope they are given a fair shake in the end. WalMart would threaten their jobs!!
