They can manage this because they need extra staff to work 28-hour weeks to cover the hours cutbacks due to Obamacare.

Still, I like the idea of offering vets “head of the line” access for jobs.

This is a PR ploy to cover their ass for eliminating firearms sales in their stores.

...and conspire in instituting every one of Zero's illegal executive orders on guns.

Because of the run on gun sales?

Thank you for your service. No you get to greet the masses at Wally World for minimum wage.

Between this and the Bullets story, not sure what to think about Walmart anymore...

In some ways i feel they have become the “company store” for welfare recipients...

Those will be some good hires.

And they’re almost all 2nd Ammendment supporters.

Already my favorite store but guess I'll have to kick it up a notch.

Wal Mart has gone way too liberal in recent years....and always had been more pro Communist Chinese than pro American. I just do not believe they will follow thru....considering they just now started this even though our veterans have been underemployed for years. I suspect this is more PR than reality

Not many vets dream of a low paying Walmart job.

Every one of these potential “hires” will be put through the “domestic terrorist” screen of the DHS (recall the white paper on this new ‘risk’ group). NO veteran should apply for this crap company. Sure, the healthcare will be from the VA, only one step below obamaomau care, for which they have gotten a waiver. This is a CRAP gesture.

God help our Veterans. And WE should.

According to one website I just saw, Walmart has 2,000,000 employees. This means they plan to increase their work force by 5 percent. Do they really need to add that many employees? I would think the prospect of the extra payroll costs would cause their stock value to go down.

Also - the announcement presumes 100,000 veterans available and willing to work for Walmart. Not sure there are that many out there. Sounds like a PR stunt to me.

Any veteran who takes a job at Walmart after what they are doing with guns, will not be worth the title of “veteran”.

Walmar still sells ammo for sure but its been nearly empty for weeks. The only store that I know that sells rifles is in denton texas.

I don’t think too many vets would want a minimum wage job.

so Walmart wants this generation of veterans to help it sell the goods that are building China’s economy so that the next generation of veterans are facing a stronger China

sounds logical if you spell America as Amerika
