Walmart Wants To Work Staff Harder To Discourage Disabled
By Elaine Meinel Supkis
Walmart announced they will provide health insurance for their workers but then a secret memo details how they will evade doing this by hiring only healthy workers, drive out the disabled and elderly and force everyone to work part time.
From the Labor Blog
To discourage unhealthy job applicants, [the memo] suggests that Wal-Mart arrange for "all jobs to include some physical activity (e.g., all cashiers do some cart-gathering)."...Thank you, Nathan. Walmart, a nest of traitors, since they can't hire illegal aliens and deny them basic wages and benefits, to stem opposition to this arm of the Chinese communist government, has decided mere waving of American flags won't work so they did a publicity stunt, pretending to offer health insurance when their intention is to keep their staff toothless and sick. Ever see who works there? Gads.
"It will be far easier to attract and retain a healthier work force than it will be to change behavior in an existing one," the memo said. "These moves would also dissuade unhealthy people from coming to work at Wal-Mart."
Wal-Mart has hopefully bought itself a nice Americans with Disabilities Act class action lawsuit.
You can rate poverty by missing teeth. And by this scale, Walmart workers are definitely third world!
Many governments are cutting back on Medicaid today. State and federal. In the Congress, they are debating cutting Medicaid to the bone, raising deductables and charges and eliminating various services and cutting money going to pharmacies so they won't sell medicines to the poor while not cutting the prices the big lobbying pharmcutical giants charge!
Meanwhile, corporate America is on a health care cutting binge, even the biggest unions are suffering huge cutbacks especially for retirees. Soon, we will all be lining up to die. Like the third world country we are becoming, we will run around trying not to drown, being blown over or killed by plagues and famines. Whoopee for the New World Order.
