10% grocery discount

In further news of holiday cheer, Walmart doesn’t pay overtime for those very same holidays.

Walmart is one of several big-box retailers who are open on Thanksgiving Day and will start its Black Friday sale at 6pm.

Walmart is also one of the few big companies that does not offer employees increased hourly wages for working shifts on a holiday. At Target and Amazon, workers are paid time and a half for each hour worked.

“Walmart doesn’t offer holiday pay. They have a discount you have to work certain days to receive and one discount only lasts two days,” said a Walmart worker in Idaho who requested to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation. They are re scheduled to work full-time shifts on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday this year.

Walmart sent ever such a nice note to explain exactly how many minutes you have to use the discount and exactly what you can’t buy with it, although the “etc” at the end could mean…well, everything else, so not so much exact as a trap. What nice trillionaires they must be.
