What’s a 5 Letter Dirty Word at Walmart? Union!
What’s a 5 letter dirty word at Walmart? Union! The manager training document, teaches store managers that they are to call the Labor Relations Hotline immediately if an employee dare speak the word ‘union.’
The Kool-Aid (on sale in aisle 5 by the way) infused talk-track that managers are to use when dealing with a rogue employee is listed below. This crafty script surely will lure, hypnotize and simultaneously shame the union lover into the recognizing that their disloyalty to Walmart is comparable to adultery. Again, only after they’ve used the emergency red phone on the wall to call and report the sinner to the Labor Relation Hotline.
I’d say this was absurd and uncommon, but it’s just the way American companies are getting away with doing business illegally and unethically. Walmart’s drivel is another example of a corrupt monarchy (sociopathic business model) in action. Where the King (Walmart) is demanding their ‘loyal’ (fuck it’s in their handbook) subjects (employees) do as they’re told (make no mention of unions) or it’s off with their heads! Their Company motto should include:
Save Money. Live Better. Do as you’re told.
