Wal-Mart Workers Ask Judge for Some Protection

Wal-Mart Cashiers Ask Judge to Bar Threats to Workers in which Wal-Mart tries to intimidate its employees into signing statements that they were never forced to work overtime without pay. Nice, huh? Its like the school bully getting you to swear to the principal that he never beat you up, while threatening to kick your ass.

Here's an excerpt...Workers' lawyers sent out notices Aug. 4 to more than 100,000 current and former Wal-Mart and Sam's Club cashiers in Texas, inviting them to join the litigation. Wal-Mart managers asked employees to turn over the notices and sign statements that they never worked off the clock as the suit claims, according to court papers. The cashiers asked U.S. District Judge Samuel Kent to order Wal-Mart to stop ``improper communications'' with workers. A hearing on the request is set for Aug. 23.

Wal-Mart Abandons Plan to Build Store in Ogden citing that it was in the best interests of the town to not build there. Not that the protests had anything to do with it or the pretty clear fact that they weren't wanted there. Nah, they did it for the people in the town.
