BarkingUnicorn: Unlike back injuries, pregnancies can be faked.
Shostie: Man. I wish I were a woman so I could fake a pregnancy and drink water while I stock shelves.
Aarontology: I drink water whenever I want because f*ck The Man.
MBK: BarkingUnicorn: Unlike back injuries, pregnancies can be faked.Are you really that big of an idiot, or do you just play one on the internet?
BarkingUnicorn: This shouldn't become a Walmart-bashing thread. TFA's point is that discrimination against pregnant women is widespread and increasing. Laws that prohibit it are being ignored by judges as well as employers. This is a much bigger problem than Walmart.
djkutch: Why would you cause distress to a corporation? I was assured they were people. By a Mormon guy, strange as that may sound.
Lorelle: BarkingUnicorn: Unlike back injuries, pregnancies can be faked.Not in this particular case. Another article notes that the employee obtained TWO notes from her doctor specifying that she needed to drink water, and was still treated like crap by Walmart.I hope she got a nice settlement. As for Walmart, fark them. I don't shop there, and never will.
basemetal: So, she lost in federal court and on appeal. Asking the supreme court to take it. I'd kind of like to hear their take on this.
mongbiohazard: What kind of a shiatty excuse for both a manager and a human being do you have to be to give a flying fark if an employee drinks farking water? Dumbass, small-minded retard.
Bossk'sSegway: low wage jobs are more likely to fire pregnant women when they the money most.
King Something: basemetal: So, she lost in federal court and on appeal. Asking the supreme court to take it. I'd kind of like to hear their take on this.I give it about 2:1 odds of SCOTUS ruling in favor of Wal-Mart because f*ck the wage slaves, and about 1000:1 odds of SCOTUS ruling 5-4 that minimum wage laws are unconstitutional because f*ck the wage slaves.
ajgeek: djkutch: Why would you cause distress to a corporation? I was assured they were people. By a Mormon guy, strange as that may sound.Mormons, like corporations, aren't people. Don't let them fool you./baptized Mormon, so BACK THE HELL OFF!
DrZiffle: If corporations are people, can they get pregnant?
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I find it hard to believe that a manager was watching over her slapping bottles of water out of her hand whenever she tried to take a drink.
OgreMagi: I refuse to shop at Walmart. My hatred of that evil corporation goes so far that I refused to go into the store with someone else wanted to pick something up. I don't care how much money I might save shopping there, it's not worth it.And no, I'm not a corporate hating hippie commie. I like Starbuck's mochas (but hate their straight espresso).
Benevolent Misanthrope: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I find it hard to believe that a manager was watching over her slapping bottles of water out of her hand whenever she tried to take a drink.No, the supervisor was walking around and when s/he saw the water bottle, required her to put it away. Let's not make this more grab-asstic than it is.
impaler: There's a small segment of the population that gets off on the smallest amount of power.
MrHappyRotter: Every thread I tell you, it's like Farkers have never encountered troll posts before. Every thread.
