View Diary: Workers at one Florida Walmart strike for more hours (30 comments)

  •  Most of the stores are understaffed (7+ / 0-)

    due to demands from corporate.

    To use your illustration numbers, they may NEED 4,000 hours, but they're not supposed to let most employees go over 25-30 hours, BUT they're supposed to do it with only 100 employees.  The individual stores can't win - and their employees are in a perpetual state of being screwed five ways from Sunday.

    My job has me visiting stores to set up displays and the like. I fucking HATE going into WalMarts. They're filthy, the employees don't have enough time to do even half of their jobs but get chewed out if they don't do it all so they're perpetually in a bad mood (understandably!), and when I have to have a WM manager sign something I spend longer waiting for one/trying to find one than I do on the damn project - then MY boss gets peeved that I'm taking longer than the allotted time for my work.

    On the whole, I prefer not to be lectured on patriotism by those who keep offshore maildrops in order to avoid paying their taxes. - Molly Ivins
