I actually agree with the guy that wrote the report noted in the op. Walmart can say all they want that they are going to hire former vets. It doesn’t mean that I have to believe it. Actually hiring vets and letting the word get out means more than any person saying they are commited to hiring them. Plus, its no secret that Walmart is one of the worst companies to work for. I can’t stand even stepping into the door. And I believe that I saw somewhere not to long ago, that Walmart was either going to completely stop hiring new employees for full time work, or cut everyones hours back so they aren’t considered full time because Walmart didn’t want to pay for their insurance due to Obamacare. Its not like the Waltons don’t have enough money to do so. They just don’t want to chip away at their personal billions to take care of the people that actually help make them the money.
There’s not a company out there that I can think of that has done more to destroy the American economy buy getting all of their garbage they sell from overseas, killing off American jobs in the process. And frankly it sickens me that people who spent however many years defending the American way of life have to come home and work for a company that does everything that it can to kill the American way of life. I would feel much better if some of the remaining truly American companies put out this statement.
And besides all of that, I think that there are much better avenues for our returning vets to go through to put all of their skills they acquired in the military to good use. Private security, personal trainers, communications and broadcasting, construction, heavy equipment operation, piloting, etc. Anything is better for them and the country than coming back and working unappreciated at Walmart.
