And the first lawsuit complaining about discrimination against non-veterans in 3... 2... 1...

/what?
//it's bound to happen

I wonder if this story will be forwarded from all my right wing family members like the fake one about Star Bucks hating army and not giving them coffee?

Great marketing move.

Pays more than minimum wage, offers benefits to part-timers, now this.  Anyone at Wal-Mart paying attention?

What?
Hiring people based on their veterans' status instead of their ability to do the job?
Sounds perfect.

In the field we had a code of honor, you watch my back, I watch yours. Back there I could fly a gunship, I could drive a tank, I was in charge of million dollar equipment, back here I can't even get a job writing some dumbshiat's name on a paper coffee cup!

I'm still not gonna drink your shiatty coffee, Starbucks.

Wal-Mart has already committed to hiring veterans.  http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/01/15/wal-mart-hire-10 0 000-veterans/1835397/

Now about Wal-Mart's pay and benefits.......

Yeah.
And look how that commitment has paid off!

We probably have a giant gang of Timothy McVeighs walking around out there thinking to themselves, "I served to defend THIS? Wtf?"

At least they can take orders.

To be fair, it's baristas. The only requirement to be able to do the job is a pulse, and I'm pretty confident the undead could do the job as well.

When I was a part-timer there ten years ago I had decent health benefits, a good 401(k) match and a damn good ESPP. Unless they back-tracked since then (unlikely for health and ESPP given that the publicity would have been deafening, but possible for 401(k) match), there is nothing wrong with the benefits.

The only valid talking points you can have about Wal*Mart are the low hourly rate, the source of the merchandise, and possibly their anti-union stance.

Actually, their benefits are so poor that a Super Wally World with 300 employees can cost taxpayers $900,000 per annum.

So what would it cost the taxpayers if those 300 people weren't working at all?

Actually, that article says it's due to low wages, which I said in my comment is a valid talking point. If you're making the argument that a person working 20 or less hours per week should get health benefits, fine. However, that would not get the people in the article off of assistance, because their checks would be even smaller after paying their insurance premiums. The problem is that Walmart has terribly low wages.

/they still paid more than any local place when I was a college student, and they worked around my classes

lilbjorn: And once again pacifists face discrimination in America.


Actually, Pacifists/ Shakers/ Mennonites and other gandhi-esque folks can also join the Army as Medics and Chaplains' Assistants; and forego using/handling firearms... but still serve their country, put in their time, wear the green and do some good! I recommend it to all my friends who bash their fellow Americans for serving their country with honor. After 2 - 6 yrs of service, they too would be classified as Veterans...

To include, you could be a Rescue Swimmer for the Coast Guard, and/or join the Merchant Marine, and/or serve in either the Peace Corps or the the United States Public Health Service (PHS); and not wield a firearm... "ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."

Hey veterans! You spent years putting your lives on the line and getting shot at, all so you could get that prized barista job at Starbucks!

The few...the proud.

It's starbucks - think marketing. They can spot the mark at well over a mile..

They should just go work as mercenaries civilian contractors doing the same jobs they did before. Only with more money and less accountability. The oil in Iraq will pay their salary.

And that's why you don't let wal mart in in the first place. Then those 300 people would be working at the small local businesses that got crushed within a couple years of the waltons coming to town. Call it an exaggeration if you want but wal mart is bad for small town America despite the low low prices.

My Ex worked HR for Starbucks, recruiting specifically.

This initiative translates to: We will hire whichever desperate bastard who needs a paycheck and pawn it off as patriotism.

There is nothing, NOTHING, as evil as Starbucks.  Not Microsoft, not WalMart, not even Evil Corp run by Satan McEvilson III.
