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.

Actually another of the programs to be fully announced today, aong with this, is about working to get more part time associates into full time positions.

Nice PR Move.

The article says WM will hire 100,000 Vets over 5 years. That’s 20K per year. Not that impressive considering that they would love to replace high school students and high school drop outs with people who have proven their worth. Walmarts attrition rate is large, so there would be plenty of opportunities.

The buying of more American goods is a not as charitable as it sounds. The prices of Asian goods have been rising due to the increase in worker wages and benefits.

Finally, saying that they would help part-time workers become full-time workers is like saying the sun will rise tomorrow. Is something that just happens anyway. If a part-time employee is a good employee, he or she will have an opportunity. Hell, the article says that 75% of store management started out as hourly employees.

Oh, and I would be suspicious of the 28 hour limit as well.

Part time employees with VA medical benefits, fits right in with Obamacare insurance. Save WM a bundle on insurance.
