Bunch of pussies.
And f*ck Walmart, too.
 
2013-08-22 09:10:35 PM  
If they don't want to work for the lowest wages legally possible, there are millions more who will gladly take their place.  Get a competitive skill, peons.
 
2013-08-22 09:11:53 PM  
Walmart is smelly and gross.  It's a sad, ugly place with low class people.

FTA ""We need Walmart to see what's happening inside its contracted warehouse."

Walmart knows and doesn't give flying rat fark.

Well aren't you a savvy sociopath businessman.
 
2013-08-22 09:12:43 PM  
I believe this is more of a product of over worked and underpaid workers, including managers that are responsible for hiring and firing.

Most people I know that does similar jobs with similar pay are stressed out and will snap at work at any given moment.

These sort of snap judgment firings are a result of that.
 
2013-08-22 09:13:00 PM  
And ten people will replace them.

Maybe if those cretins managed to get a decent education, they could find a job where they wouldn't be hassled over trivial matters.
 
2013-08-22 09:14:21 PM  
Everybody who works for Walmart and shops at Walmart should be ashamed of themselves.  That place is a breeding ground for the demise of America and trashy people.  If their retard genes can't save them from 90 degree temperatures, then let them starve on the streets.  God I hate Walmart, it's employees and everybody associated with Walmart so much and I'm infinitely better than those people and would never be caught dead in one of those stores or being friends with anybody who shops or works there.

Wait.

Wait, wait wait.

There are jobs that don't involve bullshiat?

@MrHappyRotter - Come now, I am sure there are MANY guys who want to work around sweaty, buff men!!

I'm too drunk to care, gimmie cheap shiat now; also, do you have women?

The workers are employed at Olivet International Mira Loma warehouse

That's a weird way to spell Walmart.

You sound like you got yours and f*ck those people who have competitive skills and only work at Walmart because they're the only employer who's hiring.
 
2013-08-22 09:15:34 PM  
They don't work for Walmart, they work for a supplier.   Yes, there is a difference.
 
2013-08-22 09:18:04 PM  
Typical MISLEADING HEADLINE.
These workers DO NOT WORK FOR WALMART, but a company that supplies walmart.
But, with the anti-walmart bias, and low information voters on fark, they take it as the
truth.
How about go finding another job where you don't have to be out in the heat, like I did.
Oh wait...bet they either are illegal, or WASTED their opportunity when they were younger.
Now, it's their employers fault they don't make a "living wage", have to be out in the heat.
Boo flipping cry me a river.
I sacrificed, worked hard, got an education, and I don't have to work outside, getting peanuts
for a wage.  I didn't waste my time, hanging out with a-holes, smoking, drinking, getting enough
metal pushed into my skin that I set off metal detectors, or tattoos all over my body.
So, don't come crying to me if you can only find a job in the outdoor heat!

Yeah, cause no one that works there is there because they need a job to help support themselves and their families. I'm sure you are much better than me, since you seem to be so sure of it, but how about you f*ck off anyway?

Or alternatively a satirical parrot.  I do sound like that, right?  Because that's what I was going for.  King Something wanna cracker?
 
2013-08-22 09:19:14 PM  
What I think we are missing here, is the article says it supply's Walmart. But its most likely a shipping and receiving point for all kinds of stores. Now that being said. Call OSHA. They have rules about things like heat.  I remember the LAUSD teachers union complained about heat to OSHA and they where made to close schools due to heat.

You haven't heard? Olivet International Mira Loma-Mart is the next big thing. Stores are popping up everywhere!

THIS.  And Cal-OSHA is extremely tough on companies that don't comply with their rules.

Too bad people would rather run to the media with these problems, than solve them through the proper channels.

Dude, don't feed the trolls.  It was a 6.5/10 troll, but it was still a troll.

The extreme ego boosting was the give-away.  Better to have just trashed the others and let the "infinite betterness" be inferred from the context.

I'm sure he would prefer them to be jobless getting welfare that his tax dollars pay for.

Oh wait, they are already getting that also...Well maybe it's just because he's a sociopath who thinks all he had to do was work hard, and it has nothing to do with getting the right opportunity at the right time.

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to interest media, even local media, in something that isn't bleeding, doesn't involve a missing blonde girl, or has no car chases?

Looks like there's at least some truth to the story, as the SJ Mercury News is reporting the same story.

I am guessing either the warehouse exclusively supplies walmart or they are by far their biggest  customer.
 
2013-08-22 09:34:08 PM  
I'm amazed that places like Walmart still exist, what with these new technologies that allow perfect replication of functional objects in the home.

I guess that's why Walmart is so close to bankruptcy that they can't afford even 5 minutes of slip in their warehouse.

They should upgrade their product offerings and adapt.
