COVID-19_Walmart

Hi! My name is Linda Garrett. I have worked for Walmart Corporation for 19 years at store 2857 Boardwalk Square. I ‘ve never taken a leave of absence. I’ve always respected TIME, DISEASE, ILLNESS, and DEATH. I was fortunate to use my Disability/PTO TIME wisely to handle my adversities. Unlike some people, I have TOTAL AUTHORITY over NOTHING. At this moment in TIME, I only wish to CONTROL my BREATHING and be surrounded by the necessary VENTILATION call FRESH AIR. Steve Collison and Maeve Reston of CNN please hear me out.

Hey! I notice an error. I am far far from perfect. I am not using Disability/PTO.  I meant to say The Family First Coronavirus Response Act Paid Leave and Paid Sick Time.

Where is the window? I need some fresh air. I can’t breathe in this filthy room. Buildings had tilted windows and push out windows many years ago. What happened? My nausea and headache would probably go away. I haven’t heard one person ask any questions about windows in relationship to COVID-19. Is it close to 7:00 am? When I step outside this building I will not take my fresh air for granted. Fresh Air.

!.) helps the digestive tract (oxygen intake digest food efficiently)

2.) helps in weight loss

3.) improves heart rate and blood pressure

4.) gives you breathing room (the body doesn’t work as hard for oxygen)

5.) increase serotonin

6.) strengthen the immune system (oxygen increases)

7.) white blood cells function properly fighting germs and killing bacteria

8.) cleans our lungs (dilated lungs more increase in oxygen, airborne toxin release when you exhale)

9.) does wonder for your brain

10.) more energy and one can concentrate and stay focus.

Reverse the airflow and no Fresh Air. What happens when you have these health conditions or everyone begins to look like they have these medical conditions? COVID-19 is knocking at the door trying to get in. Whew! I have a lot of concerns. I keep hearing the word second wave. I’m not hearing the word mutation. Coronavirus appears to have similar symptoms of the following respiratory disorder below only intensified by ¶ (pi).

At some point in time, COVID-19 will touch every human host on the planet.  It is learning the different DNAs of all different races.  This virus doesn’t care if you are Caucasoid (White): Negroid (Black): Capoid (Bushmen/Hottentots): Mongoloid(Oriental/Amerindian): Australoid(Australian Aborigine and Papuan). Whew! Reminds me of the movie 1956 Invasion Of The Body Snatchers’.   The remake of  Invasion Of The  Body Snatchers’ was filmed in 1978. COVID-19 will change or mutate along the way.  How much can the body’s immune system take?

bronchiectasis: lungs and airflow become damage It is hard to clear mucous.

Symptoms: phlegm, productive cough, recurrent infection

Pneumonia: infection that inflames the air sacs in one are both lungs, which may fill the lungs with fluid.

Symptoms: sharp chest pain, clammy skin, dehydration

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a group of lung diseases that blocks the airflow and make it difficult to breathe.

Acute Bronchitis: inflammation of the lining of the brachial tubes, which carry air to and from the lungs.

Symptoms: dry cough, productive cough, shortness of breath

Respiratory Disease: a condition that worsens the structure of the lungs. It can also affect the passageway that leads to the lungs.

Dr. Fauci are you there? I was in the cash office during the night preparing money to be placed in the Self-Check machines for the next day. My hand was scan by the machine. This room was small. I found it hard to breathe. Dirt and dust filled the room. The floor was filthy. Where is the mop? The money recycler was kept in this room. At the start of my shift, the recycler had run its course. Managers were constantly called to the cash office to fix the machine. When the machine was open dust and debris flew everywhere. My shift was 10:00 pm-7:00 am. I knew it would be a long night. Megan V. inform me the recycler was broke again. The machine had been having problems throughout the day.

The money recycler felt as though I was in an airplane at 30,000 feet. A passenger coughs in a compressed air chamber. Oh hell no! There is no escape. Recycled air is dangerously contaminated.  What do you think the mask is for? Two people in a fishbowl turned upside down breathing the same air. Where is the oxygen? Dr. Fauci, explains what happens when you are in a sick room or building? The light bulb flashed in my brain. I looked around and there were no windows or vents. In the corner sat an old out-dated fan. Wilmot Read Hasting Jr., co-founder, CEO of Netflix, are you there? I’ve become the leading lady in the Panic Room. My next contract movie is Box II.

Dr. Fauci, the EPA has a really good article on sick buildings. I’m reading sick_building_factsheet.pdf now. I am beginning to understand what happens when there are no windows or proper ventilation. Walmart qualifies for an Indoor Air Quality Investigation for their sick buildings. Walmarts stores across the nation and all over the world need to be checked. I am quite sure Walmart’s profit in toilet paper along should cover the charges. I’m holding Walmart Inc. and CEO Doug McMillon accountable for the lives of all Walmart associates.  COVID-19_Walmart. This is yet another OSHE VIOLATION and a Walmart Sh*t Hole Decision. Hmmm! Contact OSHA 800-321-6742, 800-321-OSHA, or visit http://www.osha.gov.

It felt as though I was clocking into death Monday-Friday. Pure anxiety! I’ve written stories in this blog about Walmart Home Office controlling the airflow. Thinking about the HVAC (heating and cooling system) made my hair stand on my head. Okay, my wig.  Hey, I ain’t gonna lie. I worried about pollutants, contaminates, and pathways. I was constantly staring up at the vents in the lady’s restroom. I’m bothered by the fact no one has mentioned about windows. I drove around. I couldn’t find buildings with windows or push out windows. The choice for central air and heating may not be the best option with a virus attacking one’s respiratory system. It’s cheaper for our society to pay less for central gas and air. Whew! I will leave it there.

I thought I was going to die at the self-checkout night after night. Only one cashier and I were scheduled in the front end the majority of the time. It was brutal changing out the 8 self-checks. The money cart was so heavy to push. Walmart was always thinking of ways to break down the older associates. Yeah, Joe and Mika, just get rid of the most vulnerable, old people. Writer Gone Rogue_Sh*t In The Box, January 21, 2019, I used a link to show how Walmart plans to force out older associates. I click onto the link and the information was gone. Imagine That. I wonder if Sundar Pichai can shine some light on the link and make it reappear. CEO Doug McMillon needs to take a lesson from Pichai. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon increase the hiring of their corporation. What a Kill Drill. Read the article Bad News at Google. Here’s How Sundar Pichai Explained It.

There were no Asset Protection at night. Walmart removed the First Responders from the store many years ago. I can think of at least 30 First Responders off the top of my head who checked on me through the night. I want to give a special shout out to KCPD, North, South, East Patrol, Platte County Sherrif Department including Shoal Creek. I want to thank each and every one of the First Responders, The Brew Top Crew, doctors, nurses, EMTs from St. Luke, and North Kansas City Hospital for showing great concern. There is a big difference between social distance and isolation. I felt totally isolated so many nights. You thought I had Ebola.

I knew I would either get rob or killed for having all that money out on the floor. I hated we were next to the airport. Every person stepping off the plane from all over the world could bring a virus from another country. It would tear my body to shreds if the cash office didn’t kill me first. All the carts collected around the store were full of returns. Clothes, toys, chemicals, meats, dairy products, all food items dumped into one basket. Returns were to be separated in customer services.

The returns were separated and returned to the floor. Bacteria on top of Bacteria. Food claims sat right on the side of the service desk next to the cash office on the floor. Spoiled frozen foods, vegetables, dairy products, and meats reeked of the foulest odor. On the grocery side, it was unbelievable. I’ll put it like this, the stench was so bad from all the grocery food claims Deffenbaugh trash trucks probably would refuse to pick up Walmart’s garbage. Hey Katy, are you still alive back there. Katy has worked many years back in the grocery receiving area. I tip my hat to Katy. I can’t believe she has survived all these years. Thank God! Katy is not old. Kiss the kids for me, Katy.

Number 44 (former President Barack Obama), Bill and Melinda Gates, I desperately need your help. On March 13th, CEO Doug McMillon was the first one to hop on the stage and rubber stamp the man’s name I can no longer speak of. There is NO TRUTH in a Rubber Stamp NO REALITY. CEO Doug McMillon is the Advisor to this man. After this man’s response to Charlottesville, McMillon stated, “he missed a critical opportunity to help bring our country together. Check out this article in Forbes. CEO Doug McMillon and Walmart not only missed critical opportunities but failed to be held accountable for the Mental Health of the associates and now their lives. I want only to be surrounded by people I can trust.

I am trying to figure out what country CEO, Doug McMillon is talking about. I’m sure Number 44(formal President Barack Obama), me, and millions of Americans do not wish to live in an Alt World that creates an atmosphere of fear and a country built on hatred and lies. Tell Vice President Joe Biden when you see him I’m so proud of him. Give him the Elbow for me. Makes sure you read the article, What CEO Doug McMillon Has Learned Since Becoming CEO of Walmart. This article was written on April 23, 2019. CEO Doug McMillon shares his thoughts on Leadership, Risk, Time, Trust, and the associates. I would like to share my thoughts and facts.

Trust Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon when they knew this Pandemic was coming. Yeah Right! What playbook to go about business, as usual, does this remind you? Every Walmart employee is at Risk to Die. You call that leadership. Walmart Inc. and CEO Doug McMillon are about to lead 150,000 workers to their death. Ask any associate at store 2857 Boardwalk Square this question. Do they think Walmart Corporation or CEO Doug McMillon care? Call Tips@Buzzfeed.com. 516-415-2358. You can also email Tips@Buzzfeed.com.

Walmart employees need to change the landscape of their silence. Employees’ lives are on the line. Calling Walmart’s Ethics Hotline just won’t cut it. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon have yet again created another highly Unethical act by keeping their employees in the dark. Let us not forget CEO Doug McMillon is the advisor to who? My point exactly.

CEO Doug McMillon missed several opportunities with Walmart employees. Work retention is inevitable. Walmarts world is not an inclusive environment for employee’s voices to be heard. Walmart’s signature is No One Will Exceed Expectation. Walmart’s behavior only instills a lack of the following: trust, loyalty, recognition, low morale of the associates, and poor management/mismanagement. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon:

!.) Failed to keep their employees safe before and during COVID-19.

2.) Failed to care about the Mental Health of the associates.

3.) Failed to care and just be humane. (compassionate, empathetic, and supportive)

4.) Failed to hire the right people.

5.) Failed to keep compensation and benefits current.

6.) Failed to engage and pay attention to what the employees feel.

7.) Failed to put the happiness of the employees as a priority.

8.) Failed to recognize and reward employees.

9.) Failed to tell the Truth. Straight Up!

Giving the associates $3oo is not a reward but an insult, VP Dan Barlett of Walmart. I just want CNN Bussiness to know the Facts. I did read the article Enough is Enough, Growth, and Development, Walmart’s Declining Profitability. Bottom line, Sell Walmart. It is not the associate’s civic duty to DIE for a company that keeps the employees in the dark. This was the Thank You Reward for store 2857 associates who worked and risk their lives through COVID-19. Where are the true incentives? Walmart employees all over the world put their lives on the line for this company. Walmart sent the message to these exhausted associates that they are Expendable.

Macy, Dillards, and many stores went on furlough. Lowes gave their associates an extra $2 for hazard pay. Frito-Lay, owned by Pepsico, pay their associates an extra $20 a day, pay associates to stay home, $100 a day to watch your kids, and a $1.00 raise. Dick’s Sporting paid their associates 3 weeks’ and the associates went on furlough. Unlike Walmart and Ceo Doug McMillon,  out in front of the camera every day telling and sell lies. The company gives 11cent raises no higher than 35 cents.  Walmart is a company that evaluates their associates before changing its format and hours in the store. The majority of the supervisors, support managers, department managers step down from their positions, The assistant managers and co-managers are demoted at the dropped of a dime. In the evaluation, Walmart failed the managers/supports/ assistant managers/supervisors in the area they do not INSPIRE their associates. Walmart and CEO Doug Mcmillon do not INSPIRE their employees. This company will HIRE 150,000 more employees to Devalue and expose to COVID-19. You call this company and CEO responsible.

ATTENTION WALMART ASSOCIATES!

Walmart removed a process connected to evaluations. The process was as followed:

1.) warning/verbal

2.) 1st coaching

3.) 2nd coaching

3.) 3rd coaching/termination

Walmart has gone straight to the heart of the matter and the associate’s pockets. Solid Performance year after year doesn’t mean an associate is safe. The needle did not move. Walmart loves to create its own rules.  Walmart does not make laws. How many times are management called out by policy flaws? The next time an associate is called to the assistant manager’s office the conversation can go like this. Walmart is hiring 150,000 new associates and I see you have not made any improvement in the last three years. How do you think this scenero will play out? Oh Wow! What happens to the associates with 3 Need Improvement in their evaluations? Need Improvement is the 3 strikes you are out of the program/job. So to all of the associates push back on your intentional negative evaluations. The law will look at age, race, gender, pay discrimination, and retaliation. Weaponizing the evaluation=wage suppression. Walmart is looking at another way to target certain employees to fire.

What has Walmart done for their associates other than risk the associate’s mental/emotional, physical health, and now the associate’s life? You will not get a copy of your evaluation unless you sign it or make a comment to acknowledge it. Don’t fret, something will go wrong with the machine and you will never see that evaluation. Walmart is very strategic at telling the associates BS and getting the associates to sign their life away. Walmart is ILLEGAL EAGLES.

To Mika Brzezinski Scarborough and Joe Scarborough, I was checking out Shawshank Redemption. Morgan Freeman said we can get busy living or get busy dying. Praying for all of you guys at MSNBC. I have learned so much. A special bond form between each member at MSNBC. I feel that way about the associates at Walmart. Send Sir Chris Matthews my special elbow. He will always forever be a knight at MSNBC roundtable. I am very hopeful. Let’s get busy Living. This is Linda Garrett from store 2857 Boardwalk Square, Kansas City, Mo. Mika and Joe, people get pissed off when you mention their name. That is why I put my name at the top.

COVID-19 is the new sheriff in town. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon will not play by the rules or end up in court. You can not put a price on a life. Time is the most priceless commodity. We can’t give Time Adjustments when Death waits in line at our Supercenters and Neighborhood Markets. COVID-19_Walmart. Shut the store down. Where is the Store Manager? Where is Dr. Who? Just got word he is leaving the store. Hmmm! The customers are stampeding the store with their income tax and stimulus checks. Crowd control is out of control. The employees are terrified.

A disappearing act by Walmart, CEO Doug McMillon, and the EOC (Emergency Operating Center) took place during the mental health crisis of their Employees before COVID-19? Who created the mental madness for the overworked, exhausted, abused and punished employees? Walmart along with CEO Doug McMillon got some hell-a-fie PR. The real truth has revealed itself. Death brings out the Best or the Beast. Death doesn’t care if you are the 1% or have no cents. There are no pockets in a shroud. Death does not discriminate. Death waits in line to participate. Ari Melber of MSNBC understands All Eyes on You Walmart. RIP Machiavelli.

Walmart decided to inflict pain, humiliation, hurt, shame, and wage suppression by weaponizing the evaluations. Customer Service Managers (CSMs) were devastated. Coach, Sandy Harrison played a big part in evaluating the front end. Sandy arrived from another store around September 2019. Harrison has been at store 2857 for a short period of time. The CSMs felt Coach Sandy had not been at Walmart long enough to evaluate the supervisors. I totally agree. I got an F also. Now you know what happens when you do not buy into Walmart draconian system. You can use the open door for grievances. Employee’s lives are on the line. The new method of open-door policy should extend to News Media, Advocates, and attorneys. A directory of resources is coming to a theater near you.

Sandy Harrison never worked one day overnight. My shift is 10:00 pm-7:00 am. I have no coaching on my record. The other associates say they have no coachings. I don’t remember having any conversation with Sandy Harrison about my job performance. We talk. Sandy Harrison works morning and mid shifts. How can you evaluate a person without working their shift or knowing how the overnight shift is operated? Whew! There are managers who spirits are broken by demotion from Walmart. There are managers who have an axe to grind. There are managers who are very new to the company.  Who do you have to evaluate the associates objectively? I thought it was horrible that Assistant Manager Sam was the bearer of bad news. Facial recognition speaks volumes. Sam had the butterfly over his mouth. I sat across from Sam feeling like Clarice. There sat Anthony Hopkins, Hannibal Lector eating my brains.

I went on my Star Trek journey. I went where no associates have gone before. I landed in the movie Wrong Turn. I talked to Clive Owen from the movie Derailed. I had lunch with Matt Damon and Don Cheadle. Don looked at me and said you are the star of the movie Crash. Bottom line, If Store Manager, Philip Shelton got and F you best believe the majority of the store associates would get an F also. Would it get reversed by the Walmart Ethics committee? CSM Rodney is the expert in this conversation. He needs to be heard by Regional Manager Steve and HR Dana. Hunger Games Begin. What! Regional Manager Steve is leaving too. Hmmm! CSM Rodney make sure you get hold of Dana or Steve before Walmart take out yet another market team.

Apple Tv (Tim Donald Cook, Chief Executive Officer of Apple, and his crew) thank you. Netflix (Wilmot Reed Hastings, Co-founder, and CEO and his crew) thank you. My mind is in maximum overdrive processing movies totally different. CEO Doug McMillon, the advisor to the man with no name became the star of Sleeping With The Enemy. Death had no name. My lens process the man without a name as Meet Joe Black. Joe Black’s late start on COVID-19 cost many lives in this country. Was this an act of intentional behavior against New York, California, Louisiana, Chicago, Florida, and any area that is low income, no income, and race-related. Basic Instant leads me down the path to Cape Fear. Movie watching has placed me back in my gasoline drawers. Will Walmart follow this path?. Will The Empire Strike Back?

You can Google the article, Where It’s Going: Walmarts $25 Million COVID-19 Commitment. Walmart breaks down the distribution of funds I’m cool with that. Walmart needs to COMMIT to the Employees across the nation who are putting their life on the line keeping their stores operational. Giving their employees the necessary tools to stay SAFE and ALIVE. The employees need to know the company they work in. Jeopardizing any life is dangerous. On any given day the associates, customers, and the world need to know the Facts. Smiling Faces is Walmarts symbol and national anthem. Beware of the pat on the back. Walmart employees are afraid and under attack. COVID-19_Walmart.

Walmart needs to Rethink its operations. Close their stores especially at 2857 in Kansas City Mo. Focus on the weakest part of the store which always has been the grocery side due to lack of help. Walmart CEO Says You Should Stop Stockpiling Food And Supplies in Saturday paper. You can Google this article too. Walmart needs to lose the attitude of Business As Usual and put their associates first like Costco, Hyvees, Aldi, Price Chopper.

The award goes to Costco for the video on keeping their customers and associates safe during COVID-19 Pandemic. Costco did not take back returns and Walmart did. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon need to takes lessons. We lost several associates to Costco. Why? Costco has a reputation for caring and treating their associates with dignity and respect. Formal Walmart employees stated Costco paid more and their benefits were way better. Word Up! What About Us! Check out Pink video. Pink and her son were affected by COVID-!9. Read the article on April 9, 2020. Pink Speaks Candidly about Getting COVID-19 With Her son on “Ellen.” Thank You, Pink for becoming one of the many Oscar Schindlers of Schindler’s List. Where is Walmart videoes/movie?  Change the game it is Traning Day. Good movie to watch.

Train the frontline of (cashiers, CSMS) to do grocery picks. Use the conveyor belts on the registers to help push the grocery orders through at a faster rate. Keep this format to boost online groceries (OGP) and stock the grocery side until this Pandemic is lifted. Kill the 6:00 am bum rush in the store. The great stampede has struck fear in the hearts of all the employees at Walmart store 2857 Boardwalk Square. It would keep the CSM safe from the money in the filthy cash office with no ventilation. CSMs and other members of management would have little to no contact with customers because of closing registers, self-checkouts, and stores.

Stores in the Kansas City area shut down at midnight before COVID-19. The store north of the river on Boardwalk Square was overwhelmed with customers. We could not provide the appropriate customer service before COVID-19. The store was not properly staffed. The schedules cut hours at the front end. Our shelves were not properly stocked. Our store has several violations. The store was contaminated before COVID-19. Regional and district managers were constantly in the store. The Store Manager, Phillip Shelton, and other members of management were warned to get the store in compliance. Walmart’s system of One Best Way is Not the Best Way. My Way or the Highway cannot be the attitude or position taken with COVID-19_Walmart. Walmart made policy changes. Not Willingly!

Thank you, Steve (Regional) and Dana(HR), for hearing me out. I give credit where credit is due. I have struggled with the Home Office throughout the years in this store. I have stated Home Office is not my friend nor my Homie due to a lack of trust. Kent Gurkie, District Manager, Mike Gray (RIP), District Manager along with his sidekick Connie Freeman were good people. They engaged the associates and made changes in the store. Hear me out once again. Walmart took out a whole market team in one swoop. Good People! The Predator has Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Glover Pissed. It’s hard to gain trust watching Walmart takedown decent people. Every time Steve (Regional) and Dana(HR) entered the store they have always treated me with respect.

Steve (Regional) and Dana(HR), I was very disappointed with the way the front end and other employees throughout the store have been treated. It was hard to catch Store Manager Philip Shelton. I didn’t know if he had gone on vacation, in meetings, or doing his daily store walks with other members of management. I didn’t know his hours. Other store manager’s hours were much early than Philip Shelton. I notice something.

Today, I want the associates and other members of management to look at the store receipt. Do you see the entire name of the store manager? If it is there he just placed it there. One of my neighbors was kind enough to pick some milk up from the store. As of 4/17/2020, Philip Shelton’s name is not on the receipt from my purchase. I did not want to leave the store without asking Philip Shelton why did he remove his last name from the store receipt. As of 4/20/2020, Philip Shelton’s name is not on the receipt. Since Philip Shelton is leaving I guess there is no reason for his name to be on the receipt.

I went out sick on 3/24/2020. Philip Shelton’s name has been missing for quite a while. Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? Joey Richie told me many years ago he was proud to have his name on the receipt. Joey stated, whatever happens, Joey Richy could hold his own and take responsibility and be held accountable. During that time Joey Richie was the right person and the right hire for this store. Joey Richie was proud of the associates and his achievements at store 2857. Store Manager Joey Richie did an excellent job. When Joey Richie and Co-Manager Brent got wind of a visit from Regional they would bring a set of clothes and spend the night at Walmart to be prepared for their visit in the morning. Philip Shelton will be exiting Walmart store at 2857 and will continue his journey at another store in Texas. Have a safe journey, Philip Shelton. Just a reminder, John Kennedy, Senator of Louisianna is not related to Ted Kennedy (RIP),senator of Massachusetts. Blake Shelton is not related to Philip Shelton. Love to hear Joe hammer John Kennedy on how fake he is. It brings a smile to Mika’s face.

Not one of the managers listed below ever removed their name: Martha Blood, Joey Richie, Jerry Reed, Scott Snow, Michael Hunter, Randall Addison, Mark Hoyt, and George whose name I can’t recall right now. I will come back to his name. Did you notice there was only one woman store manager mentioned? Walmart is notorious for gender, pay, and promotion. Check out Walmart Stores, Inc. v Dukes-Supreme Court. 564 U.S. 338 (2011). There were managers who would correct the customers if they didn’t say their full name. I remember a store manager informing a customer not to call him by his first name. They made it clear no first-name basis. Whew! Notice we didn’t have but one woman name on the list. Got me singing, It’s A Man’s World. Godfather of Soul, James Brown.

This was a big scene from the movie Mission Impossibles, Fallout. I was done. All I could think about was the former Store Managers introduce themselves to the customers they would say their full name. Marvin Gaye walked in the door. He begins to sing What’s Going On. What did Philip Shelton have to hide? I didn’t want to leave the associates and other members of management in the hands of a Store Manager who didn’t take responsibility for the store or doesn’t care. Don’t you think the customers deserve the right to know his name? One of Walmart’s famous principle is Lead by Example. COVID-19 is running its campaign. Death will make an example out of the lives of Walmart employees. Death will take the lead if Walmart continues to do business as usual. Hot-line time! Submit a tip to Bloomberg News, VLAD or VOX.

Vice President Joe Biden, Deleware: Senator Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts: Senator Bernie Sanders, Vermont: Senator Cory Booker, New Jersey: Senator Kamala Harris, California: Senator Stacy Abrams, of Georgia, do really think Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon care? Walmart made a killing on the toilet paper, sanitizer, paper towels, wipes, and disinfectants.

All the associates receive is $300. PR That! Check his salary out. This is not the movie Hidden Figures. Walmart loves promoting men over women, paying women less. Women can be more than cashiers, maintenance personnel, door greeters, department managers, coaches, assistant managers. Come on now. CEO Doug McMillon started out as a cart pusher at Walmart. He should be called Doug Mc-MILLIONS. I wonder what Michael Bloomberg calls CEO Doug McMillon?

The 1% is far from perfect and will not escape to Gattaca. In the movie, Gattaca, people had to be genetically perfect to go into space. Ethen Hawke, Uma Thurman, Jude Law reassures me, CEO Doug McMillon will not go to outer space. CEO of Walmart missed critical opportunities. He failed to fix his country. Judd’s teleconference with Ru Paul ended with Ru Paul telling CEO Doug McMillon, “Don’t F*ck It Up.” Too late! Matt Damon, who starred in the movie Elysium, said Walmart CEO McMillon shall remain on earth with the poor and 65 +. Jodie Foster, first lady president in outer space, stated Walmart Inc. nor CEO McMillon won’t be allowed to breathe Elysium’s air. Although- McMillon has money, Doug will always be viewed as a second class citizen and cart pusher. Michael Bloomberg views CEO Doug McMillon as a man with no Spaceballs. This is not West World but this is CEO Doug McMillon’s salary.

CEO Doug McMillon Executive Compensation of 2019:

$1,276,892 Base Pay

Don’t forget to visit www1.salary.com to view CEO Doug McMillon’s salary from 2009-2019. You can check out his crew salary too. Walmart associates only received $300 one time. Part-time received $150 as a Thank You for working through COVID-19. You can thank the associates by supplying them with the necessary tools to save their lives. I’m quite sure the employees would be so happy with the $569,953 total other in Mc-MIllion’s package.

Where are the Walmart Employees guard shields for their registers, masks, and hand sanitizers? Okay! Guarde shields are finally up. These associates need the appropriate cleaners and approved cleaners to wipe down their areas. Concentrate on the employee’s lives instead of cleaning the d**n floor. Maintenance is so understaffed. The machines are always broken down. The machine in the cash office is a death trap, without any ventilation and no one ever has done any maintenance to its floors. What good was painting the door to the cash office? Get some ventilation in there are pull the door off. Man!

The lives of all Walmart employees are at risk. I’m sitting here reading about the 2 Walmart workers who worked at the same store passed away from COVID-19 in Evergreen Park in Chicago. How long has Walmart and every person in retail industries, banks, etc have known about COVID-19? Many of the Associates at store 2857 Boardwalk Square in Kansas City Mo. were told that big/massive changes would be taking place in April. Strange, that information was discussed around the store in mid or late December.

Walmart could not plan for success to get ahead of the virus. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon did not serve our customers and drive customer experience. Why? Our store was dirty and had many customers complaints along with store violations before COVID-19 struck. A Now Hiring sign resides at the front entrance. Help was needed over on the grocery side. The grocery was never properly stocked for lack of associates. Walmart has the money to contract for a professional cleaning and floor crew. Old associates will be overworked and new associates will not stay. The new associates did not sign up to be pulled in a thousand different directions.

Work felt like punishment. Associates started calling in. They wanted to transfer out of the store. Transfers were blocked by Phillip Shelton, the store manager. This was before COVID-19. Now the associates in great fear of their lives want out.”Lives Do Matter”. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon PR staff need to email Walmart INC. and let them know they are no longer in charge. Death has taken the reigns. Death has come off its intermittent leave of absence. There will be no Time Adjustments. Walmart was never in charge. The BODY COUNT will rise due to Income Tax Checks and Stimulus checks. Customers overcrowding the store and not keeping their distance once again will endanger the lives of the Employees. SHUT THE STORE DOWN!

Once again March appears to be the month for destruction and disruption. Walmart is behind the times of Netflix. Evaluations were weaponized to take the associates down to a new low. Wage suppression, pay discrimination has knocked on the door of Store 2857 at Boardwalk Square. Along comes age discrimination, race discrimination, entering through the side entrance. The bullying and harassment pimped a new style in the form of shaming members of management and associates to risk their lives for a company that has never given a d**n about the physical health or mental health of the associates. What did Netflix do with their evals?

Shaming Process:

1.) Shaming members of management and associates to come to work when they are sick. Now that COVID-19 has struck Walmart, Walmart is trying to change its tune. Before COVID-19 Walmart did not operate this way. Behind the scenes, Walmart is still shaming members for not coming to work. Visit abetterbalance.org. Walmart got checked on their workers right on the attendance policy.

2.) Shaming associates to work overtime and in return stripping the time they have put in. Overtime doesn’t pay off. This was before COVID-19.

3.) Shaming members of management of a poor job of how the store looks. There is a Now Hiring sign on the door. Where is the Beef? Where are the employees?

Associates who chose to stay and work for Walmart for years or now older. The opportunity to retire will not happen. Forced out of your job comes next. Now you can lose your life. I have always told many of the associates if it’s not life-threatening don’t fear. Death is not an open-door policy. Death is not negotiable. Death forces you out of life. Walmart Corporation and Ceo Doug McMillon have taken their employees down to the lowest point of their life. Death Takes A Holiday will not happen at Walmart.

Walmarts greatest achievement is destroying the mental health of the associates so there is no oxygen in the room to hear their voices. Associates were never given the 5Ps. 1.) Praise employees regularly. 2.) Prioritizes employee’s health and wellness. 3.) Put yourself in the employee’s shoes (empathy). 4.) Pay employees what they are worth. Do Not Have them pay with their lives. 5.) Provide growth and development. No love is given.

What is truly sad is most employees are told or feel forced to sign an evaluation they disagree with. Associates feel compelled to sign. If the evaluation is not acknowledged you can not get a copy. Unbelievable! The majority of Supervisors, Department Managers, Support Managers Assistant Managers, Co-Managers, Store Managers have either been demoted or they step down from their positions. Why? When Walmart fails the employees fail.

Walmart is big on demoting, demeaning, and stomping on women’s self-esteem. Walmart pays women far less than they pay men. Walmart is at the top of its game on gender discrimination. I recall a conversation with Coach Sandy Harrison. I asked Coach what was her rank. Was her position like a Co-manager? Coach Sandy Harrison said, “I’m just nothing but a glorified assistant manager”. Just a what! What the hell! It was devastating to hear Sandy Harrison say those words. In my nineteen years at Walmart, I have heard those words over and over. I closed my eyes tight. My gasoline drawers turned me into a flame thrower. Whew! Writing about it piss me off! All women working for Walmart Inc. fighting for equality did not lose the battle only the lawsuit of Walmart v Dukes, 564 U.S. 388 (2011) the United States Supreme Court Case. Women will not buckle but continue to fight for their rights.

Throughout my years I witness Walmart’s cruelty, arrogance, selfishness, non-caring, narcissism, backstabbing, betrayal, not taking responsibility, shaming/blaming. Who does this sound like? Mirror image to Meet Joe Black. Who is the Advisor who missed opportunities for putting the country back together? I witness associates/members of management stressed to the max. Employees medicating themselves just to get through the night. The tears never stop flowing. I couldn’t help but notice associates who said they didn’t drink but started drinking. Liquor and cigarettes replaced eggs and pancakes. Associates turn themselves into a human chimney. I couldn’t believe the packs of cigarettes they purchased.

Walmart is terrible for women’s self-esteem. Walmart wants its employees to fall in line, do Walmarts bidding, and go along with Sh*t Hole Decisions that never work. Walmart, CEO Doug McMillon and the rest of the Hateful 8 shouldn’t tangle with Jango. I can hear Samuel Jackson now, “What The F*ck. Get your popcorn ready and check those movies out on Apple TV and Netflix. Stay in and watch movies, play games, do Tik-Tok, and stay safe.

Here’s that famous scene from The Exorcist. My head spun around and I started to piss on the carpet. We were short on maintenance and Mary was having a rough night. The wet mop machine to clean the floor was down as usual. We didn’t need two pissy associates on the floor. My face couldn’t turn any color with me being luscious dark chocolate. I started to throw my wig on the floor but I had just bought it. The floors were really dirty. Whew! Human hair is expensive.

Sandy Harrison did what she was told, instead of making the right decision. Walmart is very divisive.  You have to be very careful about doing other peoples’ bidding.  What happens when that person leaves? Who gets stuck with the blame? Walmart does not want any women associates to put their heads together with a class-action lawsuit. Discrimination in the areas of age, race, gender, sexism, wage suppression, retention, hiring, promotion, retaliation, harassment is Walmart’s way of putting women on the role back wall to clear women out. Sandy Harrison should have worked at least one month overnight. Harrison would realize Walmarts One Best Way does not work. Overnight is different from the day shift. The entire shift of overnight is understaffed. Walmart’s attendance policy failed under COVID-19. The attendance policy failed way before COVID-19.

EEOC and http://www.abetterbalance.org called Walmart out on attendance, pregnancy, workplace rights. Time magazine recognized A Better Balance as a leader in the fight for equality. Visit http://www.abetterbalance.org website and read the Families First Coronavirus Response Act which provides relief to working families passed by Congress. Learn about your employer.

There are 4 areas Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon Fail

1.) Know Your Customers and Drive Customers Experience.

2.) Know Your Business and Achieve Customer Results.

3.) InSpires Other

4.) Planning For Success

Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon failed in all four areas. That is why Walmart associates will never be paid what they are worth. Who is the true failure? Who loves never taking responsibility for anything? Who thinks they have total Authority? Who blames everyone else but themselves? Who is out every day talking about the changing trends in Walmarts and all they are doing for their employees. Who is the advisor to I have Complete Authority? Right! Walmart’s and CEO Doug McMillon leads by example. Same Players, Same Lies, Same Playbook, Same ideas of opening up the economy trending on a different day.

Never let anyone tell you your strength is a weakness. Never let anyone say you are weak. Strengthen the areas of your weakness. One day your weakness may become your greatest strength. Hold your own and be strong. Stand up for your beliefs. Remember you are not alone.

Implanted in my brain are the words spoken from Number 44’s mouth (formal President Barack Obama), “You Just Can’t Make This Up” As I leaned back into my chair I could hear his voice circulating around my ears saying “Know This”. I had to go back in because I knew it was something that I was missing. Everything that was subtle and invisible became crystal clear. Clocking in with Death every night heighten my senses. In the Color Purple Celie played by Whoopi Goldberg told Albert played by Danny Glover, one day you’re gonna do right by me. I hope and pray one day Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon do the same for all of the employees who are risking their lives for Walmart.

Walmart plans to hire 50,000 more associates as of Friday, April 17th. Walmart’s total comes to a whopping 150,000 more part-time and temporary workers. Walmart is 6 weeks ahead of schedule. Wow! We have entered the movie Death Race. No matter how many associates are hired by Walmart COVID-19 will take the lead. Will Walmart be held accountable for 150,000 more lives? This world is not Walmart’s World.

Charleston Heston (1970) realized he was back on earth when he saw the Stature of Liberty broken on the shore. Everything had changed. The Apes had taken over (Planet Of The Apes). The monkey on our worlds back is COVID-19. The monkey made its presence in 1983 as HTLV-3 or HTLV-III now known as HIV.  We made it through. My friend with a yellow pen. One day it will all end. At this moment in time, it is a shame and a sin. Our lives will move FORWARD from the shelter in place we live in. Our nation will rebuild and start living to the fullest again. Never forget to MOVE FORWARD.  Whose LOGO was that? BRING IT!

You were absolutely right Number 44, you just can’t make this Sh*t Up. Dropping the PEN and I’M OUT.

Orange Is The New Temporary

Several deadly incidents caused by the Active Shooter landed Walmart Store, 2857 on the State of Emergency list. Signs posted on each door at Walmart read as followed. ( Attn: Shoppers, TEMPORARY Store Hours. The Store will be closed 1 am to 6 am daily until further notice. Thank you, sorry for your inconvenience?. What is wrong with this picture?

I sincerely hope Walmart really evaluated the whole picture. What is the whole picture? Walmart decision was based on the safety of the people and the associated first. The other part of the picture is KCI International Airport distance from Walmart is approximately 8 miles making it 12 minutes away. Do you you think someone on the board of Walmart would keep store 2857 open at night not giving a d**n about safety?

Did Home Office or Asset protection send the police to Walmart on Boardwalk Square? Whoever made the decision did it Temporarily. Until further notice, the police will remain at Walmart. Wait for a minute, the signs are no longer on the door. I guess Walmart has made its decision. Whatever decision Walmart made I hope they realize Death is not TEMPORARY but PERMANENT.

Let me explain something! Richard and Maurice McDonald hamburger does not taste like Five Guys. Ray Croc stepped in to put more Flavor Flave to the company in 1955. Ray Croc will tell you to this day it is all about location, location, location. This is what put the Golden Arches on the map. This is McDonald’s moneymaker shaker. I can hear Notorious B-I-G and the BRAT signing off with their signature holler Baby Baaaaaa-by. Salt and Pepper would stomp down on it with Ooo Baby Baby.

For the record, associates can no longer remain uninformed. Reading keeps the brain tight. It’s mandatory to know your employee rights. Under Martial Law, people’s rights are removed. Constant chaos every day leaves no room for productivity. Who created the chaos? Was this an act of senseless sensibility? The biggest threat to the associates and customers is Walmart. Money is the major priority of the behemoth company.

It all sounds so familiar. Just in case Walmart says they are in shock, they didn’t know, they never heard of it, remember these important questions.

!.) Who dismiss the First Responders?

2.) How much are the First Responders paid hourly?

3.) Can Walmart afford not to have the First Responders on sight?

4.) Did Walmart base their decision on the safety of the customers and associates?

5.) Did Walmart base their decision on money?

6.) Is it business as usual with Walmart?

7.) Who out there in real-world think store (2857) should be shut down early like the other store closings?

8.) Why is store 2857 Boardwalk Square still open passed midnight?

9.) Will Walmart bring the First Responders back full time not TEMPORARILY?

10.) Should Walmart and the CEO be held accountable for their poor judgment of saving lives?

11.) What is Walmart and the CEO plan? Do they have a Plan?

It all sounds so familiar. There are so many questions in my head. I do not have the support of First Responders nor Asset Protection from 10 pm-7 am. No, they do not care. Walmart can not form their lips to say they had no clue. It is all a LIE. How many stories have I written on Walmart’s behavior? How many years has it been? Money Matters, not the People are Associates. It just like cancer. Cancer did not start today. Cancer did not start yesterday. Hatred and racism are the Ride or Die, partners, of cancer. Never TEMPORARY!

Shit Hole Decisions___Walmart

Well, Reuters, Glassdoor, and CNN Money I just want you to know CEO Doug McMillon and Walmart has a special place in my blog for Shit Hole Decisions. Visit http://nldrecognition.wordpress.com.  Read Walmart CEO Doug McMillon__Aka Babyface Nelson and The Final Straw__CEO Doug McMillon located in the March 2015 Archive. It took CEO DOUG McMILLON’s pay to jump from a whopping 19.4 million to 22.4 million in 3 years. What! The CEO got a 13% increase. Well, look who get a raise increase and bonus every year in a timely manner.  We know who hasn’t been with the company for 20 years.  Guess What! We also know Aka Babyface Doug McMillon will not receive an ONE TIME bonus for his service to the company for 20 years. Do the math (3 years of service}. Reuters, Glassdoor, and CNN Money can you believe an associate has to work 20 years for an ONE TIME Bonus of a $1000?  Walmart value the service of the associates at $50 a year.  Do you think this is a Shit Hole Decision.?

Walmart Corporation and Aka BabyFace Doug McMillon, CEO of Walmart, will take home the Global One-Eighty-Seven Award for the Murder of 63 Sam Club Stores from New York to Puerto Rico.  Seven Sam Store Clubs were closed in the Chicago area. Pretty nice neighborhoods. What’s Up with That?  Walmart associates are stun by these Shit Hole Decisions.  The associates are outraged by the one-time bonus and the numbers of years to obtain such a raise.  Walmart associates are pissed off at the suppressive wage (impede progress/delay or prevent development) for the countless years they spent at Walmart. Workers at Walmart realize NOW everyone at the entry-level will be paid more than the older associates. How does it feel to train a person that hasn’t been with the company for 2 minutes making more than an associate that has been with the company for 10 years or more?   The older workers feel this is another way of pushing them out of the company without a buyout or giving them an option to retire.  Do you think by getting rid of Sam Clubs Associate is Walmart’s way of avoiding paying benefits?   Who in the hell can afford to raise a child off of Wal-Mart so-called one-time pay increase?  Hours will be cut. The majority of managers step down to regular associates from the stress of Walmart not providing the appropriate tools to be successful in their job.  All the associates who are afraid to speak out just process what Walmart did to Sams Club.  Will store 2857 have a yellow ribbon wrap around the building for the latest crime scene? Did any of the Sams Club Stores try to form a union?  Every day when an associate pulls up on the parking lot they will wonder will their store be next.

What do Walmart associates have to lose by speaking out?  Your job could be the next One-Eighty-Seven.  I do not like those yellow vest.  If Home Office control the heat, the water, the toilet paper don’t let them control your breathing and your Voice. Stop being afraid and learn and know your rights. The Harassment, The Retaliation, The Bullying has to end. Time is truly up. The Me Too Movement is not just for the Recognizable Hollywood Swingers but for the Unrecognizable and for as Sly Stone would sing Everyday People. The Times Up MoveMent welcome you with open arms. The Seen and Not Heard will be Heard and Seen. If the associates want to start their own movement, get on it. Walmart has its website and their own radio station. This could be the associate’s hashtag CYA. Walmart Associates Movement could be COVER YOUR ASS.

Walmart Works For Walmart not for the associates.   Same deal if you have a problem and you take it to HR, Walmart Works for Walmart. So Aka Dougie Not So Fresh McMillon, CEO of Walmart, there are more movements coming into play. The Unions will not be the only ones riding your back.  To my MSNBC SWAT Team, CNN, ABC, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Daily Beast, Buzz Feed, The Root, Glassdoor,  and all the superstars of media who are under attack ask Aka CEO Doug McMillon these questions the next time he steps out front.

1.) What will Walmart do with the empty Sams Club buildings?

2.) Will these empty buildings be used for Warehouses to set up for the playbook to compete with Amazon the Great White Shark?

3.) Will  Walmart call any of the Sam Clubs Associates back?

4.) Why hasn’t Walmart stepped out front to denounce Trump Intentional Behavior because of Walmart’s 3 Basic Belief in their Company? Walmart’s 3 Basic Belief:  Serve Our Customer; Respect For The Individual; Strive For Excellence. I forgot they added the 4th one. It was Integrity. I’m still waiting for Walmart to stand by the first three beliefs. Integrity! That’s a joke.

5.) When will CEO Doug McMillon step out on the stage and say Walmart has been sold to China or maybe Russia? Who knows? They do. The Walton’s no longer own the company but has the majority of stock. Okay Then.

What is wrong with this picture?

Did you forget the millions of dollars Walmart made off of food stamps? Many of the workers carry EBT cards and receive food stamp assistance. Will the increase in their pay change the eligibility of their food stamps? Will Walmart be willing to step in and pay the difference if these associates get cut from the food stamp program?  Look at the price the associates might have to pay for Walmart Inc. and Aka BabyFace Doug McMillon Shit Hole Decision.  One Time Only Bonus can affect these associate’s livelihood.  Walmart changed their price matching policy on October the 16. The coupon policy was also changed. This took a bite out of crime. Where is the money after these losses were corrected?  How many millions did Walmart make?

The highest Award of tonight will be granted to the 1% of Walmart Corporation, Aka BabyFace McMillon, top executives and top shareholders. The Stone Cold Greed Award is the Life Time Achievement Award for not giving a damn about the associates. It also entails making sure the Rich get Richer and Walmart Corporation leads by example.  The example is Donald Trump’s, it all belongs to Trump’s Tax Break. The big money dawgs will not miss one year receiving their bonuses. For sure it won’t be a one Time Bonus. Walmart Corporation leads by example and showed the associates how Walmart really feels and who the money all belongs to.

Trump’s Penus envy button, which Cialis, Levitra, and Vardenafil cannot fix, once again let Kim Jong-un off the hook due to age discrepancy.  Before I forget, Michael Wolf,  who wrote Fire and Fury, just briefly should be informed that the childlike behavior he witnessed presents a much stronger case when you use the term developmental delays. The question to ask is: How Old Is Trump developmentally?  What level or grade level is his mental processing? Would he be capable of running the country? How pervasive are these delays?   Trump did receive the  Erectile Dysfunction and numerous dishonorable mentions for his remark on Shit Hole Countries. Trump will receive the Ignoramus Presidential Award for not knowing, not trying to find out, and not giving a damn. What Corporation lead by Example? You guess it.

It was a heartbreak Thursday night on the 11th.  What would the reaction be facing off with the associates from other countries?  Unbelievable! All those years to develop friendships and relationships and guess who drove a dagger through the heart of COMMUNICATION.  One of the associates whom I have worked with for years stated he is from Ghana. He is very proud of his country. He made it clear that the man called Trump has shamed our country and make Shit Hole Decisions.  Well, the bubble was sitting on top of my noggin and here we are with a new story.  There have been so many Shit Hole decision made by Walmart.  The new store manager, Mark Hoyt buried his head in his iPad, divided the management team due to favoritism, and continue to let Therese Renzette run the store. The last store manager, Randall Addison made it clear he ran the store and control the toilet paper. We have lost many members of management and associates based on the RULE: The RULE is stated in the story Five Days Before Christmas and once again Co-Manager Therese Renzette is the star of the Bullying, Harassment, Retaliation, Discrimination, and Race.  The focus will be on the unlawful and unethical work practice under your protected rights Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. No Corporation should be BIG TO FAIL or TO BIG TO BE SUED. These are your RIGHTS as an AT-Will Employee.

1.) Types of Discrimination-age, disability, equal pay/compensations, genetic information, harassment, retaliation, sexual harassment,  national origin, pregnancy, race/color, religion, sex,  You have more protective rights.

2.) Promoting, pay raises, training, recruiting, hiring, firing, workplace testing, challenging a job loss, wages and overtime, family and medical leave, on the job safety and health, health insurance and retirement plans, unemployment disability and workers compensation insurance, union rights. Whether or not you work at Walmart. Learn about the Employment At-Will doctrine and the Three Major Exceptions: a.) Public Exception 43-50 states adopted this policy including Missouri. b.) Implied Contract Exception 38-50 states adopted this policy. c.) Covenant of Good Faith-11 states only. This is the most progressive policy.

THE RULE: CONSTRUCTIVE DISCHARGE ARISES WHEN AN EMPLOYER CAUSES AN EMPLOYEE WORK CONDITION TO BE SO DIFFICULT OR UNPLEASANT THAT A REASONABLE EMPLOYEE IN A SIMILAR POSITION WOULD FEEL COMPELLED TO RESIGN. THE EMPLOYERS ACTION MUST HAVE BEEN TAKEN WITH THE INTENTION OF FORCING THE EMPLOYEE TO QUIT. FOR WORK CONDITION TO BE SO INTOLERABLE AS TO ESTABLISH CONSTRUCTIVE DISCHARGE, THEY MUST BE INTOLERABLE NOT ONLY TO THE EMPLOYEE INVOLVED, BUT ALSO TO A REASONABLE AND OBJECTIVE EMPLOYEE IN A SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCE.  AN EMPLOYEE WHO QUITS WITHOUT GIVING HER EMPLOYER A REASONABLE CHANCE TO WORK OUT THE PROBLEM IS NOT CONSTRUCTIVELY DISCHARGE.  Don’t worry Walmart culture is to be in CONTROL of the water, heat, toilet paper. Do not let them control your VOICE, MIND, and SPIRIT. Walmart is not willing to work with you. They love setting the associates up for failure.

The commonality at store 2857 is many associates have suffered the abuse of harassment, retaliation, discrimination, bullying, and punishment by Therese Renzette. The fear has to stop and your voice can be heard. I extend an open door for the associates in automotive, hardware, sporting goods, HBA, DSD, pets, lawn and garden, the service desk, front end cashiers, CSM, support managers,  assistant managers, co-managers, Grocery associates, stockers,  produce, maintenance, Capt. Team 1 &2, Bakery, Deli, Frozen, jewelry, electronics, housewares, chemicals.  I want Total Store to share their comments on this story. Before you make your comment think about all the Shit-Hole decisions made at store 2857 that affected you socially/emotionally. The same decisions that affected you physically and financially. Take the time and make a list. Think about the one TIME bonus you are about to receive and tell me are you worth more for all those years of service. Think about the 4 years CEO Doug McMillon has been with Walmart and what he has received for deceiving the associates. Click the button, tell your story, make the comment. Let your voice be heard.  What happened in this store should never happen again. The associates do not come to work to exist in an atmosphere of fear. So why is customer service down? It comes from the beating down of associates self-esteem by divisive tools of harassment, bullying, retaliation, discrimination, race.  You are protected against this Intentional Behavior under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Name your work practice violation that was used to set you up for failure.  There are a lot of ME TOO’s at Walmart. We are ready for TIME’S UP.

The loss of really good workers seems so unreal. Included in the decision of the one time raise, co-managers would be step down from their position if they could not find a store within 3 years to be promoted to a store manager positions.  This was a very old decision in Walmart’s policy initiated many years ago.  Under the old policy, it was 2 years for the co-managers to find a store. I have tracked this stores behavior for many years and documented the behaviors of each and every co-manager, assistant,  and the store manager that has come to store 2857 in my TIME from 2001-2018. Walmart will rid themselves of 3,500 Co-Managers position. My name is Linda Garrett and I will be the first to say Therese Renzette should be the first Co-Manager to go. Therese Renzette came to Walmart in 2007. She creates an atmosphere of fear at store 2857 and nothing has changed as of this day.  DSD can back me up. Today, Time is Up. What is Walmart’s culture? Their basic belief is FAKE NEWS TRUMP STYLE.

Yes, the new dress code should be changed to black.  Our nation has been placed on a global carpet of mourning abuse, harassment, retaliation, discrimination, and race.  The associates at Walmart share a common interest with the whole world. This would be the biggest class action lawsuit in history. This takes me back http://www.afj.org  where the associates can retrieve a wealth of information about Walmart and other cases. For now, I will limit Rule 23 (Class Action: Federal Rules of Civil Procedure) to store 2857. Thanks to all the mentors for sharing your knowledge. Thank you, NAN ARON for the up close and personal look at Walmart V Duke. Thank you, Human Rights Commission, EEOC, FEPA for helping me understand the language and terminology.  Thank You, Knights, of the Round Table MSNBC for being great teachers and moving full steam ahead.  I do understand what is at Stake. It is TIME to fight on the Assessment

It has been a long journey

Walmart Store 2857 is now on the books. Read and learn more.

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

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?
