To the editor:
On Oct. 16, Wal-Mart employees in one Florida store walked out on their shift to protest the company's new policies.
One of these ridiculous policies was having schedules created by a computer at the home office. If the associate is unable to work that shift, they run the risk of being fired.
This is yet another example of how Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, is no longer thinking of their employees. What about the parents who have sick children or children at school? The simple answer is this: Wal-Mart does not care.
That is why the advocacy group "Wakeup Wal-Mart" is holding a toll-free conference call for all associates to take part in next Thursday. If any employee of Wal-Mart is tired of their personal lives coming second to their working lives, they ought to join in the fight to hold Wal-Mart accountable for their actions.
