It finally happened: the HRC revoked Wal-Mart’s perfect score after complaints from transgender workers. To which I say, “Good. About damned time.”
As I’ve said, I worked there years ago. Wal-Mart is one of the worst companies anyone could possibly be employed with; you are treated as a cog in a machine and you can replaced whenever management feels like it. Oh, and management is more than happy to tell you this. Constantly. That’s what happens to the “average” associate. I can’t even begin to image the level of hell that place could be for someone who happens to be transgender.
Yeah, I do not miss that place. At all. I’m stunned they got a perfect in the first damned place, but then again, anything Wal-Mart does is for PR. They want to look good and maintain that, “Gee, gosh, darn, we’uns is just like yew!” folksy exterior that made them so profitable.
Seems the facade is cracking a bit. Again, I say that it’s about damned time.
