Apparently WalMart is one of the better places to work in retail. Didn't know that.
This is ludicrous and, at least in my area, is DEFINITELY not the case, here's a quote:
He also said that employees can get health insurance for roughly $17/week. Anyone know if that's true?Tovar stood his ground, saying that full-time associates on average make $12.40 per hour, or more than $25,000 per year, about $10,000 more than the poverty-level figure cited by Costello. “We’ve got some of the best jobs in the retail industry and our associates appreciate that,” Tovar said.
Quarterly bonuses? 82% of eligible employees got the bonus, according to him.
I especially loved this one:
Tovar told Costello in the interview that the complaints were coming from a small group of workers and that “the vast majority of our associates like working at Walmart.” The retailer took home $3.63 billion last quarter.
