Abe Vigoda's Ghost: I'm sure this woman deserves over a million dollars for being chastised by an asshole boss.
Sure she could have quit, but where could she go to make Wal-Mart levels of pay?

Yeah, jobs grow on trees, she surely wouldn't have a hard time finding a job and possibly end up homeless if she quit this one. That never happens. Employers should be able to do whatever they want to their employees. And punitive damages obviously shouldn't exist, because little people don't deserve that kind of money. That that is completely beside the point is, uh...

Look over there! It's a welfare mom who somehow owns a cell phone! BURN HER!!!111!!

ExperianScaresCthulhu: Need more information. The article is lacking.

I think that's the point of the SUN piece. This comes off as sounding like "got yelled at, want money for feelings". Thus feeding the appetites of Charles Adler crowd. A quick google news search for the lady's name brought back allegations of physical abuse, sexism and pressure to falsify inspection reports under threat.

I smell a 'scheme' on here part... I mean, nobody works in retail, especially a Walmart, for 7 months, if they're being constantly belittled, insulted, and humiliated. She probably smelled a potential cash settlement, and stuck around until she felt she had enough proof... Anyone with ANY dignity and a brain, gets out of there ASAP.


I used to work in Joliet, IL, for a sign shop owned and run by a 60-something-year-old ornery retired marine. Think 'Clint Eastwood from Gran Torino' and you're getting close.. This guy took it a step further and pretty much had no tact filter.

He'd regularly call me a: Moron, idiot, dumbass, etc.. "What, are you retarded or something?" mocked my choice of music, etc.. Telling him I didn't appreciate the insults did little to change things.. he'd be back at it again by the end of the day.

After about a month-and-a-half of it, I was done.. I would have quit on the spot, but I decided I wanted to pay it back, so I waited a bit..

Cut to 2 or 3 weeks later - the shop had picked up a very important job re-skinning the Joliet Police D.A.R.E. vehicles, and a few others.. roughly a dozen vehicles.. and they all had to get done the same day - a Friday.

Guess who just decided not to show up Friday.. or take any phone calls from the boss, or the shop. Yup.

Come Monday morning, I showed up about 30 minutes late and the boss was furious.. let me have it for about 10 minutes straight. I listened patiently and calmly to all of it, including the swearing, cursing, insulting, etc.. and then when he was done I just quietly said "And you wonder why I didn't show up. Moron!"

.. and left.

/ I hear he lost the D.A.R.E. account.

Is it even possible to work at Wal-Mart and NOT be humiliated?

London is Ontario's Walmart. How fitting.

I find this kind of believable, as every time I am in WalMart, there are 26 lanes with only three of them open. If the customers can't find a manager to open another lane, they're most likely in the back cursing out the rest of the cashiers.

Forgot the other part of the headline: Woman's lawyers make $1.45 million from woman working at Wal-mart

This. If I lobbied a lawsuit every time I felt demeaned by a boss, a certain speech therapist who belittled me in front of patients weekly would have it coming. So would a manager at Health Net Federal Services who told me to get my arse back to my desk, and she continued scrapbooking with another manager.
