I like how everyone conveniently forgets that Walmart managers decided to allow the people to get what they wanted on Walmart's dime (the government only pays $50 per transaction in instances like this). Lots of FUD.
 
2013-11-13 05:48:27 PM
Actually, if I were governor, I'd be punishing both sides.  It appears that the rule states that the cards are limited to fifty dollars in the event of a system malfunction.  I can see the cashiers ringing stuff, but pretty quickly it should have been apparent to management what was going on.  They chose to let people do it though, since hey, a sale is a sale.  I don't know how much it would hurt, but how about revoking certain stores participation in the program?  Like they do when they catch bodegas trading food stamps for cigarettes.

And on the other hand, people should know that in the event of a major cluster dark, you don't get to keep the money that was erroneously given to you.  Have your paycheck direct deposited?  Guess what, if the payroll people or the bank make an oopsie with a decimal point they actually have a short window of a couple days to debit the extra money right back out of your account.   Get a bank statement that says you have a billion dollars?  You'd better cash out and move to Bolivia before they catch on and correct it.  This is a classic case of people seeing an error and thinking it means "Hey, free money!" and frankly, they should know better.  It's really as dishonest as noticing a cashier giving you a twenty back in change instead of a five and not correcting them.

When the govt sends you that refund check every year, that is not "paying taxes"


He lives in Atlanta, he pays a shiatload of sales tax.

According to the article, if the card system goes down reatailers are suppossed to limit the purchase to $50.  For some reason they chose not to.  Anything over $50 in my mind is really on them.


Heh. If Jindal is smart, that should be his next move...ask for repayment from the stores that violated the 50 dollar rule. No repayment, banned from the system.

gilgigamesh: Anne.Uumellmahaye: Ugh. On one hand GOOD.
On the other hand a lot of those people are going to have families and now we've got a gaggle of children who won't have food at home for the month.
On a third hand if my mom did something that lost us our grocery money, then tough shiate, figure it out yourself.
On a fourth hand my mom had the know-how to be able to procure food for her family, the sense of sacrifice to go without for herself to be able to feed her children, and wasn't raised in a culture that taught her to be dependent on and expectant of others to meet basic needs.
On a fifth hand my comment now has five hands and is turning into a scary mutant and I'm sure I've pissed off 1,000 people with my Mutant Five-Handed Comment Monster.

This isn't a clear cut issue, I believe.

It is pretty clear cut. The people pushing this already thought the lazy poors should be left to starve. This just gives them the excuse they needed.


It's a vast conspiracy for those with wealth to want to stop giving it away with nothing in return?   What sick planet do you live on where this that's expected?

HeadLever: Tigger: What do you think all those desperate starving people will do when they lose their assistance forever?

Move to North Dakota and get a real job?


. . .because people who can't even afford food to eat can afford to move their entire family across the country to another state and get work in an industry where they have no experience or training, with no guarantee of work once they got there.

Yeah, that's a great plan.

/sarcasm.

Just for a little perspective, I wonder how many people who work at Walmart are shoved off onto the food stamps and Medicaid system because their employer doesn't pay a living wage, and cuts hours to less than full time, so they aren't eligible for health insurance?

I am not condoning this EBT free-for-all thing, but nor will I condone the nation's largest private employer stealing from all of us.

It was Walmart upper management that made the decision. They rolled the dice and lost. I'd be willing to bet they figured they would be paid for the overages and everything would be copacetic.

I have a few friends on EBT who were pretty damned furious when they saw this.  Though it may have been because they want carts full of more groceries, too ;)

I still can't decide what I think on it.  Obviously stealing is bad, mmkay, but if they loaded up on, say, a basket full of fresh vegetables and fruits for their kids, I'm inclined to say, "Can we foot the bill on this one?"

Granted, from the pictures, which may have not even have been from the incident, that didn't appear to be the case.


That's my thinking, too. If they used the cards to buy food items that maybe they couldn't have normally afforded (like macadamia nuts), then that's different than purchasing early Christmas presents and flat screen TV's.

You can't eat an entire shopping cart worth of fruit before it goes bad; you're just being greedy because there's no consequences.

2013-11-13 05:56:09 PM

unreasonable ass: It was reported that Walmart should have allowed only $50 to be purchased by any person. Walmart made the decision to not stop people from using the EBT system while it was down. The result is Walmart reportedly isn't being paid for their losses.

I have mixed feelings about this .. on one had, it isn't the kids fault that their parents are trying to loot the stores (did you see the aftermath, it was terrible), but it will be the kids who ultimately suffer.

that being said, if Walmart had told EBT customers "sorry the EBT system is down, no food for you" then we would be reading about how much Walmart hates poor people.

Walmart hates poor people though, so they should have just not let them use the EBT cards, they would be money ahead now.


No, they should have said "sorry, the system is down; $50.00 worth of food for you." Walmart simply didn't feel like participating in the program correctly, I'm thinking, because they'd thought the state would reimburse their losses, and they'd get a windfall day from all their customers empting the store.
 
2013-11-13 05:58:23 PM
Did people here watch some of those videos? Endless carts being sent through by one person? That's not OK. It's about time some people learned that there are limits.
 
2013-11-13 06:01:37 PM

Silverstaff: Yeah, that's a great plan.


If they are willing to work and don't have a Thug's attitude, they could do exacty that.  They would not have to move the family up right away, but after some time when they could actually afford it.  And you don't have to be a rig worker to get a job there. Everything from housing, truck drivers, general service, janitorial, and even burger flipping is in very high demand.

They absolutely get something in return: not being dragged from their homes by angry, starving mobs to have their severed heads jammed onto a spike.

Public welfare is the price we pay for a peaceful, modern society. Given the return on investment, I'm surprised so many constantly gripe at the cost.

HairyNevus: ferretman: [imokaywiththis.jpg]
Me three (or 18th or whatever). I worked at a grocery store for 2.5 years, and EBT users were the most self-entitled brats you could possibly serve. Not every EBT user was, but of the worst customers (especially the repeat offenders) 95% were also EBT users. Basic things like telling them prepared meals weren't food-stampable would lead to a hissy fit where I would get threatened and by the time my boss showed up, they'd just key in the override and run away. Therefore, the fit was rewarded and an unlawful precedent was made. Funny thing was, I really liked working there, but EBT customers killed it for me.


Anytime a boss overrides you doing your job the way you are trained is demoralizing.  I blame your old boss more than the EBT frauds.  The frauds act like that because of managers who are over pleasing customers.  The weirdest exchange I have seen was after a black lady was called on her bs, a black female manager went over to tell her to cut her crap out.  The irate customer lost all face when she called the manager racist.  I about died laughing.  The manager looked like she was going to slap the customer.

The unlimited cards were an error, not someone's call to remove all limits. Policy is to allow a person to purchase up to $50 worth of food if there is an EBT malfunction.  Walmart should have stuck to this limit, so they are partially to blame for the near riot that followed.  That's in addition to a bunch of dishonest people who are used to getting something for nothing so had no moral or ethical issues with taking more.

Haven't read the threads yet, but initial thoughts are that the people affected are going to blame anyone and everyone (except for themselves), some people are going to defend those affected "because of the children", and yet some others are going to argue that there should not be any consequences for committing fraud/theft.

That is a myopic view of the economy. It works because it rejects the premise that the employer is a taxpayer and ultimately pays for it anyway. If they paid a living wage, they are still paying for it, so its pretty much a wash.

Companies don't pay taxes, they act merely as an opaque medium through which citizens are taxed without their direct knowledge.

lockers: JuicePats: lockers: The punishment for abusing the system is to starve peoples kids. This makes people happy? Meanwhile all those companies who did not follow policy gets a pass? Man you guys are cruel and greedy.

Wal-Mart lost a shiatton of money on the deal.

okay, so yeah, I guess they will finally train their staff better.


unreasonable ass: Smelly Pirate Hooker: Barfmaker: Even though the accepted policy is to allow benefits recipients to purchase $50 worth of groceries in the event that cards malfunction, many stores did not limit purchases.


So the stores got their money but no punishment for them?

Yeah, this. I say they eat the overages, just like they'd do with other forms of fraud that they don't bother to prevent.

WALMART HAS TO ABSORB THE LOSSES
