  •  Hotter than hell in Walmart Sacramento store (0+ / 0-)

    Those happy contented workers didn't come from the Sacramento Florin store where the indoor temps were in the 95 degree range on Fri and Sat.  One poor cashier not only had to work in this under engineered HVAC environment, but in between a chiken roaster and two drink refers kicking out plenty of heat.  Signage blocking the AC vents and lots of skylights letting in the 108 degree temps and solar radiation in Sacramento on those days.  Don't know how they stand it.  It's just vicious and incompetent.

    •  Sounds like slave labor (0+ / 0-)

      No unions and no laws to protect workers cause this.  We need unions again, good unions to protect people.  

      •  CalOSHA is also supposed tom protect workers, but (0+ / 0-)

        it's totally useless.  30 years or Republican governors have so infested the agencies in California that even the lower level workers are right wingers and totally unable to do their jobs where Walmart or any other big businesses are concerned, even though we now have a Democrat as Gov..
