The evils of Walmart

Hey all..you may have noticed there are no new posts.

Good new is that we got our car back, The police found it after it had been sitting for a week at a bar.

Bad news is that the other day my wife was accused of stealing $100 dollors from her register as a cashier at Walmart.
She of course did not steal it. But there has been alot of many missing from lots of cashiers and it is obvious that it is someone in managment or someone in the accounting office doing it.
But they decided to start scareing people by Forceing my wife to resign from her job. and Had a police officer tell her that if she didn't sign the paper claiming she took the money he was takeing her to jail and then she would goto prison for a year. (highly unlikely).

So we are talking with a lawyer about sueing Walmart themselves, sueing the police officer for intimidation and sueing the loss prevention manager for allowing the officer to force her to sign the addmission of theft form. Being he allowed the officer to go against Walmart own policy (#LP-11) that states "An associate cannot be forced, nor is he/she required to sign or fill out the "statement of addmision to theft" form. The associate may be asked to do so ,and if they volutarily agree, it must be done in the presence of two witneesses."
Normaly when someone who works there steals from the store they are banned from any walmart for LIFE!...but the manager told her she could come in anytime and shop if she liked?!?!?!?!?!
If you havent guessed by now.. she was setup.
About 3 weeks ago her ass. manager told her if she didnt goto part time and take a cut in pay she would be let go..my wife said she would not. so about a week and a half later this happens. pretty strange don't ya think?

Thier plan at ours and many other stores is to get rid of everyone who is getting alot of hourly pay and replace them with new low paying jobs.
Walmart started a union type payscale about a year or so ago they pays differint pay for differint jobs. My wife was working at the service desk (level 4) and before her 4 other service desk people were fired for various things and replced with a rotating group of workers from the floor (levels 1 and 2) so they are getting 1 to 3 less a hour that they would if they were getting the pay they should for working the job they were doing.
My trouble is i still work there as well as her mother. so for the past few days I have been getting stares from the management and workers who only know they she doesnt work there.
And my wife was told that if me or my mother-in-law say a word about it we would be terminated.
I am looking for a new job in the morning and am going to stop going into work.

my wife and have put up with way to much crap from Walmart over the 4+ years we have worked there.

The heartache of seeing friends get "laid-off" right before christmas so thier sales look better.

People fired because the refuse to work in 4 areas due to managment not hireing new people when other workers quit.

manager having flings with workers and nothing happens.(other than they get more rasies and promoted)

There are so many things i could go into about the lawbreaking things they do Working off the clock/discrimination(sex and race) but i have to goto work.

I just ask you to not buy anything from Walmart.


P.s. updates will probly resume after she finds a new job being we are really going to be struggling with the baby and trying to keep up on rent and car payments and bills.
If this site is not updated within a month. It meens we lost our house and are homeless and living in my truck..it's ok it's rather roomy.

Wish us luck! Thanks for all the great email friends i have made from this new site.
