Snitch This! Here’s The Playlist.

Whew-Wee! You mean to tell me the associates are not allowed to sit on the benches anymore.  What! The only place you can have your breaks and lunches will be in the Break Room or outside.  Hey, I will admit I sat over in the corner at the service desk and would eat my lunch. No one could see me. The majority of the times when the associates came to pick up the returns they didn’t know I was there. Other associates begin to come and sit on the bench inside customer service.  There are 2 benches by the time clock near the podium. One night I was sitting behind the service desk eating my lunch. The Co-manager comes up and started throwing return buckets around. This incident was witnessed by 2 other associates and the other CSM.  The CSM said it happen to her over the weekend.  Okay! The other CSM acted like it was a normal occurrence.  Let’s just assume the Co-Manager was angry probably because the returns had not been picked up by the associates or the Co-manager may have felt the CSMs had not called out enough times. I continued to eat my lunch.  The next night the assistant manager rolls up and tells me it was very unprofessional to eat behind the service desk. The assistant manager said she would inform the other associates they could not eat in the area by customer service and sit on the benches by the TIME clock.  The customers would get mad if they would see us sitting around and not waiting for them.   What I couldn’t understand is you could not see me at the service desk. You had to either be told by someone I was there or come into customer service to physically know I was there. The majority of the associates are aware I very seldom go to the Break Room.

Here we go again!  Some people don’t give up. We can now add the vacation request and the public service announcement by the store manager booting me off THE BENCH as another pattern of Walmart’s retaliation for JULY.  Request date was May 23, 2015, and only 1 week approved in July 2015.  CEO Doug McMillon is going to be thrilled to death. I don’t mine filing the 4th Department of Labor and Industrial Relations Missouri Commission On Human Rights complaint. The contact number is 573-751-3300. That just means more paperwork and giving The Human Rights Commission more information about Walmart’s unfair labor practices. The people Walmart leave in charge. Wait until you get further into the story. You will see WHY the month of JULY really means so much to me. I won’t spoil the surprise.

Strange, in 2008 I would stand by the cart carrel to gather heat when my body became cold(booted out).  In  2011 the room by automotive where customers waited for their cars(booted out).  The same year, over on the grocery side of DSD, the room where they kept the red totes with the cigarettes (booted out). In  2012 the room behind customer service was well heated (booted out).  I was in areas where the customer could not see me nor the associates. I was booted out by the same Co-manager.  I just wanted a place to eat in peace. Here it is July 2015, maybe Co-manager Theresa just wants me booted out of the building period.  I guess it is more professional for Co-manager Theresa to throw around return buckets and let the associates see how well she handled situations.  Well, you know you can’t single a person out. I guess the store manager forgot in 2013 he sent another Co-manager to boot me out of a small area.  Now it has been made into a tiny office.  The store manager made the announcement everyone has to eat in the Break Room or outside.  I wonder if Co-manager Theresa left something out? Maybe she forgot to tell the Store Manager, Randall Addison how many times she has booted me out.  Even in the nightly meetings because I ask too many questions I was booted out.  What do you think? It feels to me as though I was singled out. I wonder if any of the other associates have been booted out as many TIMES as I have.

DUDE! I am not a union organizer. Just to let you know I am not being disrespectful to management. Walmart has a gift card out that has a grey background with bold dark grey capital letters spelling out the word DUDE.  I bought one to show certain members of management because if you say something they may take offense to what you say or take what you say out of context. I was in the office talking to Assistant manager Dianne about my vacation time. My voice elevated and she said it appeared to her I was coming across as angry. WOW! I explain to her I thought I was expressing myself as being passionate. Here goes the “Angry Black Women Syndrome.” There have been many times Assistant Manager  Dianne has been out on the floor and raised her voice at the associates. I thought she was frustrated because the grocery side has always been short on staffing. I never viewed her as an angry White Women. Sir Chris Knight of the Round Table this is why the President always kept a smooth low tone.   Strange how certain members of management are the flamethrowers of disrespect. Another adverse action on Wal-marts behalf. It only creates a hostile environment. Yes, it will affect the associate job performance.  The Associates see Wal-mart as bullies. Walmart takes everything away, dictating all the rules, and humiliating the associates by saying they are slow and unproductive.  We just recently lost 2 more GOOD PEOPLE and hard workers for this very same reason. Man! I hate being stereotyped.

Man! Where did the TIME go?  Where’s your buddy?  He is back in lawn and garden tonight?  The USA is working in so many departments tonight. All the associates are spread thin and working in different areas.  There are not a lot of people on GM (General Merchandise) side. We are needed on the Grocery Side. So call me early for my returns. I certainly will.  Are you taking an early break? What are you going to eat? Tonight I will snack on a Rocky Road Snicker and a Naked Mango Smoothie.  I will save the ice-cream for another day.  You look so peaceful sitting there.  I’m really tired. Sall, I promised you a story.  This one is for you. I have been reflecting back on many of my stories. There are a lot of people missing in action. As my memory unfolds these where all GOOD PEOPLE. It’s all GOOD. I hated to see them leave the store.  Each person left me feeling reassured they would be alright.  It was better for their health, well-being, and they were looking forward to a salary increase.   Many of the associates made it clear they wanted better treatment and could wait for the pay increase. These associates were tired of the poor treatment they had to receive from Walmart. No matter how hard the associates would try they were viewed as slow and unproductive.

How in the world can you schedule the associates pass their availability without asking? Walmart doesn’t mine. It is just another violation of a LOOPHOLE.  The rules in the policy can change at any time to suit the needs of Walmart.  It was hard to come to work while certain members of management would beat you down. In the morning when it was time to get off, your self-esteem was wrapped around your kneecaps.  Certain members of management on several occasions reminded the associates if they did not like Walmart’s treatment they could go elsewhere.  How many TIMES have I been told the very same thing by certain members of management?  All those GOOD PEOPLE who are no longer with the store looks very relieved and less stressed.   All those GOOD people came back to the store to remind the workers how much they miss them.  Sall, they left me with GOOD memories.   WOW! To go so far as to tell an associate to find another job if you don’t play by Walmart’s rules.  It can make the associates feel helpless. Time to be a Disruptive Innovator. Here goes being bad and breaking chain of command to bring a new way to get this message off of the bench and onto the GRID. On a GOOD note, Oprah said don’t forget to document.  Oprah stated sometimes it is TIME  to move on to another job.  Snitch This! Here’s the Playlist.

Sall, there are so many jobs websites. Forbes listed Top 75 Websites for your career in alphabetical order.  Forbes also has 100 top websites for Women. I say to you Sall, Raison d’être. You will never have to feel like you are trapped.  I really did not like being called a Snitch. Toure thinks it is horrible too. I figure if I SNITCH it would be to help serve a greater purpose for other people’s live.  I really don’t like the term, Snitch. Who’s Toure? He is a guardian of the Knights of The Round Table on MSNBC.  Guess What! I am not sitting on the bench delivering a locked in message. Power to the GRID! Sall, I want the world to know that these people on this list will always be eternal flames in my heart.

There are TIMES when I created a list and I can see race, age, sex, national origin, religion, and color just pop out. Asking questions helps. Let’s visit Mr. Rogers neighborhood.  Who dominates this list?  What? Shut Up!

1.) Nadia-Mommy of the Year. Love sharing time with her sons. She was a GOOD HARD WORKER and loved her job at Walmart. What a loss!

2.) Pete-Mr. Stylist himself and loved every kind of shoe in the world. GOOD WORKER, friendly and easy-going and definitely GOOD PEOPLE.

3.) Rashaud- Love his music and the Brother could sing. GOOD WORKER. Doing his thing at GM. His favorite candy was vanilla carmen creme. Rashaud did not like being called a BOY.  So Snitch This! There’s more to the Playlist.

4.) Antonio-Delightful personality and very unique. I can see Antonio zipping through the store with his bag of Smart Popcorn and his bottle of Star Bucks Frappuccino on his lunch hour.  GOOD PERSON and he tried hard.

5.) Balvin-Mr. Healthy Eater. Love mangoes, avocados, all types of fruit just like you Sall.  A very Hard and GOOD WORKER. All around smooth and a very easy-going person.  What a loss.  Balvin comes to Walmart at night proudly wearing his Park Hill School District Badge.  This brother made it clear he would go out on his own terms.  He was told basically by the Co-manager if he could not wax the floors they no longer had any use for his services.  Park Hill is now hiring.

6.) Rob loved his old school music, a comedian, and love old school candy.  GOOD PEOPLE and GOOD WORKER

7.) Tanya-The Grandmother of the year. Always shopping for her grandchildren and Ms. Entrepreneur of opening up a chain of Day Care Centers. Hold onto your dream. GOOD PEOPLE and GOOD WORKER.

Sall, there have only been 6 Black assistant managers in this store over a period of 14 years. Walmart will probably bring another Black manager to cover up. Can Walmart cover up all the hurt and pain they have to cause the associates?  Look around. There is not one Black manager in the store yet.  Hmmm! How discriminatory is this?  It didn’t take long to get rid of Mr. Ricky.  Who masterminds a plan to alleviate all Black Assistant Managers from store #2857?  When you write a story and the people start disappearing from the story there is a great cause to be concerned.  The Confederate Flag has been removed.  Walmart said they would participate in removing symbols of the Confederate flag.   Now it is TIME for the IDEOLOGY, and the people who want to hang onto the GOOD OLD BOY SYSTEM, and THE TAP ON THE BACK be taken DOWN.  Home Office controls the heat, water, and air. If everything is controlled by Home Office maybe it is TIME for the associates to organize and go to HOME OFFICE and list concerns for yourself, the store, and pay increases. The associates have the right to organize and Town Hall management out of their positions.  I think this is why the associates can no longer set on THEM THERE BENCHES.  They can always go to the GRID and they won’t get written up.  Walmart may have to Pull the Plug but I, Linda Garrett, choose to breathe on my own.   Can you hear Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald singing On My Own? It would truly help if the associates get in touch with HOME OFFICE, the news media, and DWIT (Do Whatever It Takes) to bring down the Confederate Flag. This is Slavery, Bondage, and Control. The associates have always held the power in their hand. Now it is TIME to use their VOICES. Now you see WHY I get booted out.

Sall, we need to be a part of the policy-making process. THE TAP ON THE BACK gives Walmart leverage to change their policy to fit their needs at any given TIME, not the associates. The TAP ON THE BACK disrespect the worker’s rights and weakens the laws of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  Sall, Title Vll prohibits employment discrimination based on race, religion, sex, color, and national origin. Sall, you are from Africa. Knowing your rights gives you leverage and puts the power in your hands, not Walmart.  The TAP ON THE BACK gives power to Walmart Corporation who has failed to respect the laws.   It is quite easy for Walmart to disrespect those associate who has worked for Walmart Corporation for many years.  Tenure is not respected.  We are not respected.   An example would be Walmart raise increase. The longer a person stays their wage is suppressed even more. This hinders the development of one’s job performance.  Sall, there are laws that protect you from pay discrimination. Anyone coming in after the raise increase has walked into the door making more than the person who spent years to get to the new associate’s salary. Think about the people who were here before the wage increase went into effect.  Some associates were paid at a higher rate and were in a lower pay grade.  Who wants more responsibility in a higher pay grade but receives less money? How did these associates reach their salary cap so soon?   Walmart raise increase is based on how much they favor an individual.  God has no favorites. God grants Grace. God does not discriminate Amen!

Every person did not get a raise but many of the associates thought the raise would be for all of Walmart associates. Laws are put in place that protects our HUMAN RIGHTS against Discrimination In The Workplace. Can I get an Amen from Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, from New York?  Missouri is a No-Fault State but it does not give Walmart Corporation the right to create an UMBRELLA OF LIES. Do not be intimidated by Walmart’s size.  Walmart must be held accountable for their sins.  Sometimes we fall from GRACE because we are BLINDED by GREED which stares us in the FACE. Corporations lose sight of the people who put them on the map. Money is the #1 priority.  We lose GOOD EMPLOYEES. We lose GOOD CUSTOMERS, We lose GOOD MANAGEMENT.  From the echoes of Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts, if you are too big to fail you are too big to exist.  From the battle cries of Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont, Demos.org, UpWorthy, and many others the minimum wage needs to be raised to $15.00 an hour in order to be competitive. To uplift the poor from the poverty level and keep the middle class in tack.  Can I get AMEN to that?

I love AMAZING GRACE. The tune floating in my head is Oh Happy Day. When Jesus washed, Oh when he washed, he washed my sins away.  Oh, Happy Day. No, you don’t earn Grace. Grace is granted by God Almighty. Grace is a special gift handed to us by God who will forgive our sins. God will judge us all in the end.  Do we deserve GRACE? NO!  Man judges but can never grant a person GRACE. There is so much that man has to forgive himself so he may judge objectively. Who forgives our sin?  Well, you know some people are not in the forgiveness business.  Thank God for granting us GRACE.  God Favors us all. A man has his favorites. Sall, this is when discrimination comes into play because one side is favored more than the other. God does not discriminate. God is in a Neutral Zone.  Through Gods lens he sees no color, dollar amount doesn’t matter, nor the size of the corporation, and whether or not if you are a celebrity when your ship sails it will be TIME to go.   Oh, Happy Day. Sall, this is why we need to step outside and bring in independent investigators who do not work for Walmart and will remain Neutral in evaluating any type of grievance. All the people on the list below need to know they do have a choice and always get a second opinion. It doesn’t need to be Wal-Mart’s opinion.

Off the top of my head, I do not wish to view any of the associates as FAMILIAR STRANGERS.  Somewhere down the line, Sall, we must complete the conversation and learn to get along in order to have a productive work night especially when we are short on people. We spend a lot of hours together and I would like to think I have learned something about each associate as they come to the register.  What puts a smile on their face and keep the associates within the boundaries of remaining human? Once you give these 25 associates their zu-zu’s and wam-wam’s you got 25 smiles without a raise.

1.) Ricardo-walnuts and avocados

2.) Karen-mocha frappuccino and M&M’s

3.) Tim-oatmeal cookies and Sunkist orange soda

4.) Dwight-mangoes and plum

5.) Charlotte-cherry coke and peanuts

6.) Tony-Red Bull and Doritos

7.) Jeannine-Marlboro Red and Twizzler

8.) Cory-pizza and sherbet ice-cream

9.) Unisa-KickStart Cherry Mt. Dew and Rice Crispy Treats

10.) Alex-Lipton Green Tea and Life Savers Gummy Treats

11.) De Andre-Welches Fruit Snack and Gatorade Blue Drink

12.) Ashley Cherry Coke and Chocolate Mushroom Cookies

13.) Tanetra-Coke and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup

14.) Robert-Mini Fudge Brownies and Red Kool-Aid

15.) Jamie-Chobani Coconut yogurt and strawberry cupcakes

16.) Daniel-Barbecue Pork sandwich and Vanilla Double Shot

17.) Tretez- Twix and White Hersey Chocolate bar

18.) Ms. Peggy-coffee and pure ice one flavored drink

19.) Brady-Octopus and Butter Pecan Ice Cream

20.) Keon-Graham Crackers and Manchurian noodles

21.) Hans-Lime popsicle and chocolate candy

22.)David-Rice Crispy Treats and Mt. Dew Code Red

23.) Derrick-Watermelon gum and Mt. Dew

24.) Mrs. Lauren-butter frosting cakes and cookies

25.) Sara P-pickles and Dr. Pepper

These are all GOOD people and hard workers. Our store consists of many GOOD hard workers.  I probably can name something they all like or they all like to do or places where the associates visited. The associates are not FAMILIAR STRANGERS but more like FAMILY.  This is how the job gets done by being able to communicate to an associate the smallest of their interest is important.  Let the associates know you are paying attention and you do care.

I can look in the basket of many of the customers and remind them if they left out any general merchandise or grocery items. There are a lot of GOOD customers that have frequent the store. We have lost a lot of GOOD customers.  The people feel Walmart does not provide quality service. The customers do not like the way Walmart treats the associates. Many of the customer’s children were hired at Walmart and this was their first job experience.  Doctors, Attorneys, Pilots, Judges and all people from different nationalities and all walks of life get off the plane from KC International, which is just around the corner. People coming in off their flight was surprised Walmart didn’t have the latest technology and the store was so outdated. A young man from Arizona said he was surprised we didn’t have any self-checkout.  He said for over 5 years he worked installing registers for Walmart Corporation but had since parted ways. He said any tech that walks into a store and notices you have no self-checkout lanes it meant the store was at risk for high theft. Not putting in self-checkout lanes would be a way to reduce loss in the store. Interesting!

Our registers had the oldest programs and should have been upgraded in 2007.  Every register has crashed. The most popular registers 19,1,5,7,9,11,13,17,20,21,22,24,25,26,27,29, and 32.  At the Service desk 91 hasn’t worked in a long time  Register 93 has a tendency to freeze. Register 95 has been in and out of commission. Register 2,8, and 19(still have problems), 68 and 27 was down on the general merchandise side.  Who did we serve with all those registers out of commission on and off for the past 8 yrs? Who was in violation? Did the customers receive GOOD service?  Is this one of the reasons why Walmart has such a low score in customer service? Ask Consumer Report and Shop Smart.   There were no registers opened because people were not hired to be placed on the broken registers.  How much sense does that make?  Instead of getting new registers and turnstiles we have received another patch job.  All those years and the registers were not working properly. What about the scales?  Now there is one hell-of-a compliance issue.  A fortune could be made if the customer’s fruit and vegetables were not weighed properly.  Electronics has a huge compliance issue.  Two people should be staffed in Electronics at all Times.  Hey, Walmart can change the rules anytime.  The Debit readers are still a major problem.  Debit readers are unable to read the credit/debit cards with the new computer chip.  Customers do not wish to swipe their card 2 or more times.  Yes, the customers have been overcharged and called Walmart out. The customer showed on their smartphones, iPhones, and Androids it was a Walmart’s problem, not a banking problem. The customer wanted the problem resolved right away.  Customers have made it clear, “who needs management.”  Customers had the policy on their phones which loaded a lot quicker than management responded.  Snitch This! Here’s The Playlist.

It would be so much better if new TOUCH SCREEN computers had been installed and a faster program used.  MOTOROLA!  Come on now. Guess who was held accountable for the mechanical errors. SURPRISE!  See these dates Sall, 5/30/2012, 7/13/2012, 7/16/2012, 7/26/2012, 9/22/2012. This was my last trip to HR.  I walk around every night with those dates in my pocket.   I wrote a story on November 26, 2012,  Please Proceed__Get The Transcript. Those dates demonstrate coaching for failure, not for success. It reminded me of a certain member of management, Co-Manager Trez, behind the camera. This was another attempt to set me up for a Structural Dismissal or Structural Discharge.  There are other Structural dates that followed in 2013, 2014, and 2015. Even before these dates, I noticed a pattern of INTENTIONAL unnecessary write-ups. Sall, it is just another fancy way of saying you are on your way to getting FIRED TRUMP STYLE.  Well in my case, certain members of management are doing everything in their power Intentionally and will create an LIE to get rid of me, you, and any person who stands up for themselves. Did you notice a pattern, Sall?  Wow! management was really desperate in JULY of 2012.  They are desperate now.  JULY 2015 has arrived. It felt as though I have been money laundered and hung out to dry. In cases of money laundering, it is never done all at once. Information is altered to make the transaction appear more acceptable. Walmart has their heart set on taking me to the cleaners. I have always wanted what was best for the associates and the customers.  This is no longer Walmart’s goal.

Look out for the words INVOLUNTARY TERMINATION with MISCONDUCT on exit papers. You better know it!  I have read many of the associate’s exits papers in my Time.   Sall, INVOLUNTARY TERMINATION is what I call a Euphemism. It is the polite way so folks don’t get embarrassed telling the associate they are booted out permanently.  Corporations go through the back door so employers can avoid paying benefits to employees.  Who volunteers to get fired? Will any of the personal discussions/verbal, written coaching and the lousy evaluation you receive be dropped if you decide to return?  Are you going to receive the salary you left out with if and when you return? What a way to say you are out the door.  Why would an associate come back to the scene of the crime in 30 days for rehire?  Really! Get fired again. Now Walmart or any corporation can say how they really worked with you and they tried so hard.  What employer would take an associate back for MISCONDUCT? Does Walmart have some sort of 30-day treatment plan before they fire you again?  Charges not expunged. Well, the new Euphemism of today would be  INVOLUNTARY WORK SLAUGHTER.  If you come back for the 2nd TIME I guess it would be 2nd degree associate slaughter.  Have you figured out who got burned?  What a way to destroy your work record. You think Unemployment is going to give you any BENEFITS? NO! Is it set up this way to force an associate back to the corporation without them paying any BENEFITS. This doesn’t appear to be legal.

Look for patterns of behaviors and always watch the dates.  The cashiers, CSMs, and an employee called to the register off the floor are at high risk of getting on a register and being set up by certain members of management behind the looking-glass or AP (100). I am not being paranoid. I have gone through this personal hell myself. I have other dates to prove Walmart’s reckless Intentional behavior.  Are the cameras for the associates?  Are the cameras for the associates who are viewed as thieves?   Certain management can get an associate for Time theft or grazing (eating an item that has not been purchased) on the clock.   No person working at Walmart should be mentally raped by the excessive surveillance of certain members of management. Get another storyline when it comes to the registers.  How can Walmart hold the associates accountable for their being out of compliance?  The Coin-Star machine needs to be checked. Customers are putting their money in the machine and when the customer gets to the register the ticket will say Do not redeem this ticket. This ticket has been used. The whole store needed to be remodeled by 2007 but instead, we got a patch job. Now we are getting another patch job.  Walmart Corporation needs to be held accountable. Walmart creates policies, drop the ball on policies, and pick up the ball on policies to cover Walmart, not the associate. Sall, this is where the associates have the right to assemble and change the rules of the game to benefit their behalf. Sall, there are many things that need to be fixed at Walmart and with Walmart Corporation. The greatest news of today Sall, you are not one of the people who need to be fixed. You are definitely GOOD people with great potentials.  Amen to that with a tip of a hat. More voices are needed.

Two years ago the roof got worked on, maybe.  Unbelievable! Look what happened the other night.  An object punctured the roof. The rain came pouring in from the roof and caused damage to merchandise in certain areas. The grocery side vestibule and the general merchandise side vestibule floods quite often. There are leaks throughout the ceiling.  I just hope and pray the roof doesn’t collapse killing any of the associates or any members of management.  It shouldn’t take a tragic event to happen at Walmart to get it right. Will Walmart be held accountable for being out of compliance?

Surveys out and it is Time to tell the CEO Doug McMillon, Judith McKenna, Chief Operating Manager US Walmart, and Gregg Foran, President and CEO Walmart US how I and many associates feel.

1.) The wage put before the associates were unfair, not competitive, and done in a deceptive manner.  This wage is suppressive for those who have been at Walmart for many years. This wage covers up and goes through the backdoor on the person who has worked on a lower level and paid more by means of the Tap On The Shoulder.  Capped out associates received a 2% increase.  The associates who are at a higher level and paid less and not capped out early is the man in the middle whose salary has no wage increase at all.

2.) Walmart reputation has been scarred by not offering $15.00 an hour.  Walmart is a major beneficiary of Food Stamps and EBT. Walmart workers cost the taxpayers $6.2 Billion in Public Assistance.  Walmart gets $104 million dollar tax break for giving their executives outrageous pay packages and bonuses.  The associates get ran into the ground and end up utilizing public assistance.  Big time former CEO Mike Duke got off the hinge with fringe benefits by running a company into the ground.  Walmart got away with just being embarrassed. Our last bonus was $34.00 and before it was $62.00. I want to let the mom, Amanda Moore, who went to a hearing on raising the minimum wage for $15.00 is ab-so-lute-ly correct. When will the associates of Walmart get a raise in their PAYCHECK?

3.)  The associate’s low wages contribute to Walmart map of success.   The success of Walmart depends upon associates not being paid their fair share.  The associates are a huge part of the Walmart Welfare system at $9.00 hr. The contributions of the many hours worked by the associates can easily be remedied by hiring the appropriate staffing.  Hiring for full-time employment instead of running Super Center stores off of part-time employment, skeletal crews, and contracts of Labor Ready associates who do not make the 90 days. This is an Intentional strategy I feel Walmart puts into place to get their job done. Walmart can control the accrued vacation TIME of the associates by not hiring. This forces the associates who have been there the longest into 1 week of vacation even if you have earned 3 weeks. So as you can see Walmart takes away associates benefits.  Only Walmart benefits.

4.) Walmart pay grade can be easily understood. The problem with the pay grade are associates who get the TAP ON THE SHOULDER  get a higher rate of pay.  The associate’s with the higher level pay grade is lower. Who wants more responsibility for less money? Who wants a big fancy title to later find out it is just a big fancy title with more work.

5.) If you were not over the paid grade or salary capped out then you were left out of the raise increase.  Why isn’t a salary cap or bonus cap placed on the CEO and other big-time executives?

6.) The associates are not satisfied with the overnight differential, and rate of pay. The associates felt compelled to sign as they do with any other personal discussion, written or verbal coaching out of fear due to retaliation.

7.) There is a huge disconnect in the store. The store manager is very distant, verbally abusive to members of management, and associates. Negative feedback is his specialty.   This was the person in charge of explaining the pay wage. Really!  All the overnight associates dying to get home from the brutal night they worked to be called to the personnel office to face off with WHO, Randall Addison. No, it was not explained thoroughly to the associates. What took Randall Addison so long to tell the associates how the pay wage would work? Where is HR? If any associates have any grievance use your open door. Contact Delinda Davis-913-268-7904 or Gerald Henrickson-913-268-7904.  The doors of the Church is always open. Find a Neutral Zone that will weigh both sides.  So to all the associates you need to step outside and use the number above. Don’t forget HOME OFFICE is Walmart big send-off button. Walmart works for Walmart.

Can you answer these questions for the associates? What is the purpose of the survey when nothing changes on behalf of the associates? Where is the check and balance system at Walmart when Walmart changes their policy to accommodate their needs only? Are these changes coming from Corporate? Are these changes coming from the store manager?   Who initiated the change in the Vacation Policy? I have read the vacation policy 6 times. It covers the areas of Accruing vacation, Using vacation, Holidays, Unscheduled vacation, Status change, Vacation pay at termination. I requested 12 weeks ahead of two weeks of vacation. You think I would have paid my dues. Guess Not!

1.) your vacation time can be used for ANY REASON.

2.) I did not request vacation unexpectedly, nor on an unscheduled basis

3.) I notified my manager for the reason of request.

Approval of vacation requests goes like this.

Your supervisor will review your request to use available vacation based on your work responsibilities.  I have not taken any time off.  I have accrued 3 weeks of vacation over a 14 year period. I made sure that I would not try to schedule my vacation off during the Back To School Tax-Free Weekend so it would not impact business.  There are Two other associates coded as CSM’s (customer service managers)  that have already taken their vacation. There are CSM’s on the second shift who said they would not have a problem coming overnight to help out. So I am asking CEO Doug McMillon, Judith McKenna (Chief Operating Manager of Walmart US) and Gregg Foran, President, and CEO Walmart the US, What seems to be the problem? I am following Walmart’s Policy. It looks Discriminatory when you know others associates got 2 weeks and you didn’t. I guess that is why Walmart has no respect for Tenure. Walmart made the policy and I guess it is time to change the policy to benefit Walmart again. As long as you stay it is not beneficial for the associate.

LOOPHOLE: This information does not create a bond of marriage or a contract with Walmart. Ain’t no other contracts involved. Walmart can change or modify any information at any given time without notice at their sole discretion. Consistent with applicable laws.  You are not married to Walmart.  If you are married to Walmart get ready for an annulment or divorce at any given time for no reason at all. It doesn’t matter how long you have been in the relationship.  That’s right, you are free to leave Walmart and you better believe Walmart will definitely get rid of you no matter what it takes. These are the changes we as the associate need to fight on. Basically, Walmart has all the say. It doesn’t matter once again about Walmart size.  Walmart needs to be held ACCOUNTABLE.  I will not allow Walmart to LIE to me. My internal hard drive becomes like Eric Holder, former Attorney General of the United States. You can’t talk to Eric Holder crazy or be disrespectful.  My external hard drive becomes like one of the greatest evolved mind of all TIMES,  Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

We need to send an email to Hillary Clinton on New Momentum on Paid Leaves. It would be nice if I got my 2 weeks request Paid Vacation after working 14 years.  If all of the other associates who have earned accrued TIME wants to take 2 weeks, so be it.   Walmart Corporation has stripped away 2 weeks of vacation down to one week even if you have accrued TIME. It is called HIRE MORE PEOPLE.  STOP FIRING and FORCING OUT GOOD PEOPLE. Take a seminar on DIVERSITY, COMMUNICATION, and INTEGRITY. It is a shame Walmart strips away what the associates are entitled by the pathway of less hiring another strategy of Walmart’s INTENTIONAL behavior.   Another major strategy used by Walmart is overtime.  It distracts the associates who are focused on more money.   This is a major strategy used by Walmart’s INTENTIONAL behavior to justify violating their 6-day work rule.  Many of the associates are not asked by certain members of management to have their availability changed. Certain members of management seize the opportunity and change the associate’s availability as they see fit.  Later the associates are forced to kill the overtime. If the overtime is not killed in a certain TIME frame the associates pay the price of being coached and can lose their job.  A list is generated of all the associated who should kill the overtime with NO MORE EXCUSES. Those long hours and stretched out days begin to wear on the associates and they begin to miss days. Associates are called into the office for termination because of their Attendance which management controlled. What a setup. It is Time to seize the opportunity to solve some problems.

If every associate in each department put together a list of what is needed to operate their department, changes to be made, and violations then Walmart can use the terminology of TOTAL STORE. Right now it is a TOTAL WRECK. Snitch This! Here’s The Playlist for Automotive:

1.) cannot work with a skeleton crew-HIRE MORE PEOPLE

2.) telzon and printers are out of date

3.) no proper oil manual for 2015 oil specs

4.) battery rack out of date

5.) card readers keep crashing on registers

6.) tire Lifts are out of date

7.) mask are needed for techs doing fuel injections

8.) schedules are constantly adjusted because associates are placed outside their availability

9.) new check machines eat check

10.) only one phone line back in automotive

11.) hand-held telzon is freezing up and the service orders need to be placed on hand-held telzon

12.) Need new registers. Associates should not be held accountable for Wal-Mart not upgrading their registers

13.) tire machine is out of date and no custom rims can be done

14.) the program for the computers out in the shop are way out of date

If anyone in automotive has any more suggestions, please feel free to contribute. All departments on the General Merchandise Side, Grocery Side, DSD, GM Receiving solicit your concerns and ideas to HOME OFFICE or an investigative team in the Neutral Zone/MCHR (Missouri Commission On Human Rights-573-751-3325). Contact the Neutral Zone from State to State. Don’t forget only God grants GRACE.

Sall, I heard something really positive awhile back.  I was watching one of my favorite shows, The Cycle.  There was a message of GROWING HOPE in Oakland delivered by KWAME ANKU.  He stated, ” A Small Mind focuses on the problem.”  A Big Mind focuses on the solution to the problem.”  “A Genius Mind sees the opportunity that lies in the problem.”  WHEW! Amen to That!  Another young man, Albrey Brown, told of his success in bridging the gap between the tech world (tech-quity) and diversity.   On the for real side, I just wished Walmart understood Diversity. As far as Tech-quity, Walmart is so far behind in technology at store #2857. This store needs more than a remodel. I can hear Jenny Horne, state representative of South Carolina, delivering her speech. Her tearful voice let the world know she would not be a part of what the Confederate flag represented. Jenny Horne was a descendant of Jefferson Davis and she was not holding on to the ideology of slavery.  Removing the shackle from our feet to our mind at the rate of $9.00 hr. will keep the associates below the poverty level, in bondage, and forever confined. Sall, we can no longer be Always A Slave At Walmart. It really felt GOOD getting off the bench and going global. That bench was so hard.  I love the GRID and sitting at my desk. It is much safer here.  CEO Doug McMillon needs to rethink his position on the raise increase and restore Dignity back into Walmart Corporation by giving the associates $15.00 hr.

CEO Doug McMillon took his cut, tripled his salary, and he has a big bonus package.  Learn to invest in the associates and learn about Diversity. Where is the Integrity of Walmart Corporation?   If another manager tells one more associate if they don’t like Wal-Mart rules find another job. The associates have their Snitch This! Here’s The Playlist.  I was shooting for the genius status today. Sall, I hope the associates heard me. I like our global bench.  Investment in the associates would make Walmart a better place. Why am I the enemy?  I want whats best for our store?

Any person who completed reading this story today got through 6827 words. If you don’t think I have anything to report or documented think again. You Better Know It! Snitch This! Coming at you with the JULY 2015 Playlist.

Inspirational__You

WHOOP! WHOOP! Kansas City I’m so glad you came here. Who are YOU!  Y’all will find out. I wanted to start early.  Wow! you are having too much fun. Shanice is carrying the tune I Like Your Smile. See what happens when you do your job. The Do-Nothing Posse don’t like your style. Hey! I see you are cool with that. Whew! You have been cracking on the brothers. You showed the world who are the rats. You did your job too well. When you woke up in the morning you were determined not to fail.  There is so much music rotating around in my head. My head began to swell.  I started singing the Jackson 5 Enjoy Yourself. Does this ring a bell?

It was Tax-Free Weekend and I needed some BIG TIME HOPE. I knew when I roll up on the job it would be on like rope-a-dope. Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. I filed everything including EEOC. This is what happens when you do your job. Home Office gets pissed off and turn into a lynch mob.  I understand why you are laid back, calm and very cool. You can’t see what is happening to you when you are angry and acting a fool. That’s exactly what they want you to do is get mad and come unglued. DANG! If the question is ever asked, Did anything change? Hell to the ye-ah! It went from bad to worst. What The Ha Hell are they trying to do?  Stop trying to put GRANNY WHO BOO in a  hearse.  Just to let you know I am a grandmother and this is the name my grandchildren call me.  All because you have done your job so well,  this is what becomes of the situation. The company finds ways to strike back.  It’s another form of retaliation. Snoop and Dr. Dre you are on. It Ain’t Nothing But A G Thang Baby. You think I’m going to let WAL-MART drive me crazy. It’s like this and like that and like this and ugh!  I will chill until the next episode. To MSNBC this is WHY the BIRTHDAY BROTHER has to be smooth and not explode.

Evelyn Champaign King would sing SHAME. It is a low down dirty SHAME. The Legend from Australia would bellow out SHAME. You would think The Legend was confronting Tony Abbott ( Prime Minister of Australia)  once again. The Legend is not going for anyone who will not speak out against the banks. Elizabeth Warren is in and Hillary Clinton would be out. It is a SHAME if WAL-MART don’t think I  haven’t notice the following:

1.) Closing the service desk at 10:00 p.m. instead of 11:00 p.m. and leaving all the trash, claims, and 50 to 60 carts of  returns. Who’s counting?  Hey, the other shifts are on a register all day. Why?  WAL-MART is not being a job creator. Bernie Sanders would say, hire some D.. people and share the wealth. Where are the Veterans? How many has been hired?

2.) Not having people scheduled  appropriately for TAX FREE WEEKEND. Excuse me! We do not have people on a regular day. Why? There is NO PLAN TO HAVE PEOPLE ON OVERNIGHT.  Think about it. Would you really try to have additional people overnight when an associate  has decided to hold WAL-MART accountable  and have an outside agency peep into their drawers.   Sure it is all about cutting total store hours.  Who is WAL-MART really looking out for?  Whose story would that be?  Were there ever any hours designated for overnight?  Would WAL-MART fly under the radar and cut store hours for profit? How much pressure would it put on each  shift to force many of the associates out especially the associates who made $10.00 or more an hour? What about the associates whose pay are maxed out? Well, you don’t have to worry about the BLACK, BROWN, or TAN. It would be our last stand.  Oh, we can’t leave out 40 plus and elderly.  How much change and frustration will they be able to take  at that age of trying to find a new job. Let’s rile the base and give them more red meat than they can eat.  Sooo everything can be blamed on the BLACK CSM. Shut Up! No! Get out of here! I don’t mine being mirrored after Inspirational__You. It lets me know I’m handling my cool.  When you get angry you become the ignorant A.. Fool. Tis a toast on your birthday! You have taken us all to school. 🙂

3.) Why would I notice the picture has been taken down in personnel of the Assistant Manager who said I could not do my job?   Are we to assume  he doesn’t work there until he can be recycled to another store. Hmm! I wonder WHY he is still working in the store up until the 8th or 9th of August?  Why does this Assistant Manager has the opportunity to go to a market store?  You think if this had been a BLACK BROTHER he would have the OPPORTUNITY to be given another position or a Tap on the shoulders.

4.) Why would I notice the 11.8 million dollar CEO was not a DISRUPTIVE INNOVATOR  and was pushed out by the 9.6 million dollar  man who had already picked an ASIAN successor. I wonder how many people will be resigning on the  9th of August or transitioning into other stores? Strange when I look back at the months April-July  there seems to be a correlation between the time I received the focked up evaluation and a strong period of getting rid of associates. Even the CEO, BILL SIMON is on the out. At least he will remain a consultant.  Is there a bigger plan in the works to transition WAL-MART associates to all go part-time.  Hmmm!

5.) Why would they put the new assistant female manager by herself on a tax-free weekend and not schedule a co-manager to help her get through one of the busiest TIME in WAL-MART season? Is it me?  Am I seeing another Hater-aide pattern developing against this manager to one day becoming a  Co-manager? Remember she is a FEMALE.  Don’t forget about  the ONLY Black Assistant Manager that was put overnight. They brought in a WHITE female Assistant Manager to balance out or hide what they had done to the BLACK ASSISTANT MANAGER. This is the manager that got left by herself  on TAX FREE WEEKEND. Who comes to her rescue? The Dark Night with his BLACK and SHINING ARMOR to help a sister out.  Don’t you think this was really  decent of the Dark Knight?  The LEGION would say, “SHAME” trying to kill 2 birds in one stone.  “SHAME.” I just love  the LEGION. He is a real Australia media celebrity.

Ted Kennedy’s mane would fluff up. The Lion’s roar would bring excruciating pain to the Brother or the company who wasn’t  willing to set up appropriate accommodation for the disabled. Ted’s paw would reach out and extend itself into the air.  A mighty thrust of wind would strike down the BEHEMOTH COMPANY out of  Lion’s despair.  Now a Brother who is Hated so much couldn’t even go there.  Why? Big Eddie said it on his show. The Brother is Black.  Are you tripping?  What have you been smoking?  Tell me it is not crack. We are not trying to put the lens of the camera’s eye of the Canadian Mayor. There will be no stereotyping because the U.S. has crackheads, whack-heads and government criminal players.

Just off the top of my head, I could see the changes because I’m not angry. Thank you Inspirational__You. The analysts were all horrified to see you get stigmatized. It was a SHAME how they tried to constantly penalize and never wanted to apologize.  Are you really surprised? The opposite end of the spectrum did not think you were residential. Who tried to destroy your credentials? Get a piece of the Rock. It wasn’t Prudential. Now, who looks Presidential.

Billy Preston got it right the first Time. Yes, Nothing from Nothing leaves Nothing. You got to have something if you want to be with me. Love the words to that song. So it is Time to move forward.  We need to keep in step. When I heard you were coming to town I jumped to my feet. I grab a glass of sparkling water and I was dancing doing the YEET. My son stops by with his sandwich in his hand eating on some baloney.  He said hold up mom this week we’re stepping to the SCHMONEY. I know this may sound crazy. Smooth Operator once again showed the world who is lazy. Not one bill was pass as he laughed and laughed.  Who looks absolutely amazing?

You weather the storm of Bluffs and Dares.  It doesn’t matter about your white hair. I hope people are paying attention to the skills you have taught. Inspirational__You just couldn’t be bought. You move forward, evolve, and fought and fought. The DO-NOTHING bill passer once again got caught. I could never have seen this much. NO WAY! The Brother who taught me his skills, it is his BIRTHDAY.  Happy Birthday! BARACK OBAMA

Smooth Operator

I tried to catch up with you the other day. The pace was too much for me. It felt like a marathon. My legs are so much shorter. Just when I thought I had caught up with your stride, my body hit pay dirt. You left me hanging off the rail wishing I had a bottle of Primestine Mist. One thing about it, you were dressed to impress. The navy blue suit you wore was raising hell and the lavender tie set it off. The look on your face was serious. Your arms swung out evenly from side to side. It didn’t matter how many emergencies the city had, you looked as though you were ready to put them all out. Are you wearing your Gasoline Drawers?

Every person you encountered on the streets was given a strong handshake. Your smile came bursting through. Words of hope were given to all the people who felt beaten down by the economy. Then all of a sudden you sat down on the curb in your nice suit. Do you think Eric Cantor or Paul Ryan would have given an uplifting curb service speech to the people in their high dollar cha-ching suit? Don’t answer!

Wherever you were headed it didn’t seem important anymore. You were answering questions about concerns of jobs, infrastructure, voters suppression, and the Big 3(Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid). An old lady appeared from out of nowhere. Silence came over the crowd. You looked directly into her eyes and you reached out and held her hand. Then you said, “How can I help you?” She responded, “You have helped me.” You are learning to ask the questions. Inclusions make you a part of us.

Sitting here among the people you have included yourself. The Republicans tried to divide you from WE THE PEOPLE and OUR NATION. You have not let Pride override the welfare of the People. The Republicans tried to make the American people feel in taking out the dictators, it was only your victory. WE THE PEOPLE and OUR NATION understood it was a victory for all. You are starting to learn from your MISTAKES. Achievement comes with ACKNOWLEDGING your MISTAKES and taking RESPONSIBILITY for your MISTAKES. You have shown the American People deference.Through all the criticism you did not let your head drop below the water. The eternal flame burns deep inside of you. The Human Factor works in your favor. You have remained HUMANE.

The Presidents before you made mistakes. The PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS have taken it to a new level of mistakes. Herman Cain is the cousin of the other mother, Oscar OCD, who is always entertaining the NO NO THOUGHTS. Go back and refresh your memory. Oscar OCD was in EASTER UNDER THE UMBRELLA_FOR NLD. Oscar OCD always referred to his little cousin Herman, as Captain Nasty McNuts. Tyrone Tourettes, the cousin of Bobby Tourettes, thought it meant Herman liked McNuggets. AH NO! I don’t think so.

Strange that HERMAN grew up in the Restaurant Business. Since he made his POKEMAN SPEECH he probably needs to call PICACHO to the RESCUE. The next cartoon character he might want to be is a TRANSFORMER. Yes, Herman Cain is more than meets the eye. He is the original DECEPTICON along with the other PRETENDERS/CONTENDERS. Starscream, Herman Cain, cannot be trusted. He is always trying to find a way to overthrow Megatron, Rick Perry. Sounds like this is playing in the media right about now.

Megatron, Rick Perry, is at Lowes picking up paint for his METEORITES which is all wrong. Sentinel Prime, Mitt Romney, has switched sides and his numbers still didn’t move in the polls. This is the perfect world for Mitt Romney.

He has so many characters to TRANSFORM into. If I was Herman Cain I would stay with the TRANSFORMERS. He’s going to need a hideout within himself and a new theme song. No one will ever notice the White 1999 MONTE CARLO is Herman Cain in the junkyard. The sign will read We BUY, SELL, and OWN previous DECEPTICONS by the Koch Brothers. In Training Day, Denzel Washington drove the Black MONTE CARLO. Herman Cain is NO Denzel.

Now it is TIME to develop a trusted loyal Crew so you won’t look distant or be isolated from your base. Steve Israel, Head of the Democratic Congressional Committee can whip the Democrats into shape. Lean to the side of the strong Democrats who use the media. In Smokelbg Tweets she gives her thumbs up to Bernie Sanders, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

We can’t leave out Barney Franks and Chuck Schumer, the Progressive/Liberal Democrats. You got the Ohio Players, not the singing group, the Democrats in Ohio. Sherrod Brown and Marcy Kaptur would be excellent team players.

The DEMOCRATS need to speak out and be compassionate about their leader. You have come a very long way. We can see your growth. Your message has gotten stronger. Son, I ain’t stopped BELIEVING in you. So you better not stop BELIEVING. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. BELIEVE IN YOUR PURPOSE. BELIEVE IN YOUR VISION. BELIEVE you are a SMOOTH OPERATOR.

Another voice shouts out from the crowd. SMOOTH OPERATOR, the REPUBLICANS are totally thrown off course. Their hatred is letting people around our nation and other nations know they have RESPECT only for the BENJAMIN’S BABY. All this business about your job ratings in the polls is at 40% is a bunch of sardines. Just think if we had Muammar Gaddafi for 42 years. Instead, we have Charles and David Koch causing havoc. We need to occupy their headquarters.

Who cares about those numbers? What polls are they reporting from? It sounds like Fox News statistics. Their math is way off the charts. They never do their research. We all know Bill O’Reilly is never WRONG. I do like Greta Van Susteren, Sheppard Smith, Geraldo Rivera, and Chris Wallace. Geraldo Rivera barbecues BILL O’Reilly’s butt. Geraldo is the chef of Burnt Ends. Watch out, Bobby Flay!

Chris Wallace broke down and told John Stewart that Fox News is Conservative. John Stewart of the DAILY SHOW keeps his Gasoline Drawers on and uses his flamethrower to set Fox News on fire. Fox News thinks this is the story of ROOTS 999. They made a lot of people have a “What The Hah Hell” moment. I guess Herman Cain is their Black. “What the Hah Hell” do they mean by your black/my black. Let’s send a friendly reminder to FOX NEWS letting them know that Slave Days Are Over.

Do they really have a Candidate? A young lady’s voice in the crowd rang out. With everything the Republicans have done to you, I would have blown a gasket. SMOOTH OPERATOR smiles and replies, “I need YOUR support.” War within Wars is no good. I am here for the People. The losses have made me gain great knowledge and great strength. I have Learned and Transformed. The past is just that, the past. The Moment is Now. We will continue to Press On. I will not be discouraged by Congress, the Republicans, and the TEA PARTY. The REPUBLICANS reading this will say I did not answer the question. We have to stop BLAMING. We need to Start MAINTAINING our government.

There are TIMES when we take Action, the Words are fulfilled. There are TIMES when we take Words and we may Fail to carry out the Action. Remember the word has been “NO.” Remember the Action was not carried out. Remember to do the Math. Remember that only 4 Democrats voted against the AMERICAN JOB ACT. The young lady asked, Who were the 4 Democrats? An elder man steps up and starts calling out names. It was them old tired Conservative Blue Dog Democrats. Roll Call Sister!

It was Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, Senator John Tester of Montana, and Senator Mark Pryor of Arkansas. I tell you what Sister, I can Remember 4 names. Baby Girl, all 49 REPUBLICANS voted against the bill. Now it is gonna be hard Remembering all 49 Knucklehead REPUBLICANS. Just Remember the Herman Cain Theory, 4+5=9 and you take out the (+5=) and you got 49. Maybe he will get 49 years for the 4 women he sexually harassed.

Why did it take 4 women and not just 1 of these charges to be acknowledged and taken seriously? Is it possible that a SUPREME COURT JUSTICE may have slipped through the cracks? Is it okay to label the poor and middle-class behavior? Why are we not acknowledging the behaviors of the rich and high-profile government officials? Go back and review GOT NO TIME TO BE DISABLED in the March Archives. You will find an answer.

A young boy around the age of 6 breaks through the crowd. His presence breaks the tension. “Are you who I think you are?” Somebody said you are the President of the United States. I told them No Way! You are the man with the plan. The man who understands. The man with the whole world in the palm of his hands. You are a SMOOTH OPERATOR. He jumps into PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA’s lap and gives him a big hug. He lifts the young boy into the air. “I will keep my Promise.”

ADVISORY ALERT: It is hard for people diagnosed with NLD Syndrome and other exceptionalities to come off as SMOOTH OPERATORS. Some may lack the social communication skills, inability to read social cues, and interpreting body language. Others may have trouble with personal hygiene, and cocktail party speech. They have difficulty interpreting facial expression. It is hard for them to initiate a conversation or end a conversation. Their social judgment is poor. NLDers are not sure where his or her space is and cannot judge the distance(space invaders). This is due to visual-spatial organization. They are labeled by others as annoying, ill-mannered, rude, discourteous, and smart “aleck.”

People diagnosed with NLD Syndrome cannot detect hidden meanings of language and social interactions aren’t detected There will be many outbursts, social blunders, misinterpretations, and misjudgments. NLDers end up being the victims and are victimized because they are naively trusting. They DO NOT understand a person that is deceitful, cunning, or who manipulates others. They have faulty spatial perception only getting half of the picture.

Their behaviors are misinterpreted by our society as being INTENTIONAL. Their neurological and neuro-behavior right hemisphere disorder is UNINTENTIONAL. Sexual Harassment is a term that is very vaguely defined. It happens a lot in the workplace. It entails social situations, the making of unwanted sexual advances, and obscene remarks. How would it be possible to charge a person with NLD SYNDROME with sexual harassment if they have these characteristics and traits? People with NLD SYNDROME will not have a clue to what sexual harassment or any other type of harassment is due to the nature of their neurological disorder and their UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS.

My advice to all parents is finding a neuro-psychologist or psychiatrist that has had years of knowledge, training, and experience in the field of Nonverbal Learning Disability. It is very essential that you have your child tested early. This diagnosis has been overlooked for 41 years and has not been placed on the DSM4. This is a great disservice to millions of people who are looking for answers for their children/adults. When AUTISM, ASPERGER, ADD, ADHD, PDD-NOS, OCD, TOURETTES SYNDROME, ANXIETY DISORDER, TIC DISORDER, just doesn’t add up, PLEASE turn YOUR ATTENTION to NLD SYNDROME

How many TIMES have people with NLD SYNDROME diagnosed/undiagnosed been falsely accused, misjudged, socially isolated, and punished repeatedly because society has failed to be educated about this neurological disorder?
How many people are locked away in institutions, given a counterproductive treatment plan, or heavily medicated because they have gone undiagnosed, the diagnosis is ignored/is hidden or the diagnoses were not understood?

How many people with this diagnosis have been falsely accused of a crime they didn’t commit or understand it was a crime due to the nature of their disability and their UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS? How many people with this diagnosis have been incarcerated? How many lives have been lost and our society will continue to lose due to the secondary diagnosis of anxiety, stress, depression, and panic attack? Think about it. I hope this will help millions of people.

How can our society continue to violate the HUMAN and CIVIL RIGHTS of people with this diagnosis? This is in the DEFENSE for NLD SYNDROME. NLD Mom/cancer survivor
