Walmart should not be subsidized, but you lefties on here b****ing and moaning about it isn't going to make them change, they make a lot of money, if it bothers you don't have anything to do with them, not sure what http://www.peopleofwalmart.com/
will use more new material if that happens.
Until the workers say enough is enough, I'm not going to accept those conditions of employment, and it cant just be one or 2, it needs to be a good number of them, as long as most of them just go to work and take it, they have nobody to blame but themselves.
For the record Yes I have quit a job because I felt I was being taken advantage of, and no I didn't have another job lined up when I did it. When I went in and asked my boss for a raise, upon being denied I asked for a letter of reference because I was going to have to start looking for another job, his reply " sure ill do that, you wont leave tho, you'll be here forever" I will never forget those words, I handed in my letter of resignation the next day, didn't have anywhere to go, but i couldn't stay there, not under those conditions, but then I have some self respect.
Good for you. I got a job after getting out of the Navy, servicing cars at Avis RAC worked the night shift and it was not bad because I could watch the baby during the day when Momma went to work.
After a while though did much the same thing, started looking for jobs and had a couple offers, went in to talk to the manager to tell him I had them and would be giving notice, he offered to put me on the counter.. That started a career with them that ultimately led to being the station manager of the largest airport operation in the Avis world. Retired there after 20 plus years to get away from the rat race that it was.
So one can start small and move up if you have the will to work hard.
That said not everyone at Walmart is so motivated.
