NEW YORK -- Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world's largest retailer and the nation's largest private employer, is making a pledge to hire every recently discharged veteran who wants a job.
The plan is set to be announced as part of an address delivered in New York on Tuesday at the annual retail industry convention by Bill Simon, president and CEO of Wal-Mart's namesake U.S. business.

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.
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.
I would bet my last dollar that this is exactly what WalMart is doing.
When did they eliminate firearms sales in their stores?
Because of the run on gun sales?
My Walmart in Mustang Oklahoma is still selling guns and ammunition (when in stock).
That’s exactly what they are doing, IMHO.
“Walmart responds to ‘suspended ammo’ story
The blogosphere has exploded with outrage in response to news that Walmart is suspending ammunition sales in anticipation of the Obama administrations gun-control recommendations to Congress but the retail giant tells WND the reports arent true.
That information is inaccurate, said Ashley Hardie, a spokeswoman located at Walmarts corporate headquarters in Bentonville, Ark.”
Walmart is still selling guns. I just got home from the local walmart and they have guns and ammo for sale. The corporate headquarters said they have NOT changed their policies and are selling firearms. I also called the Walmart Sporting Goods Mgr in Rogers, Arkansas and he said he has guns and ammo for sale.
HOORAY FOR WAL MART.!! If I wasn't so damn sick, I would go buy something from them..But it won't be ammo...They don't have any ammo left...
Thanks for the update!
Walmart is selling guns and ammo..it is a lie being spread on the internet by Investment Watch. LOOK..I just got home from Walmart and YES they sell guns and ammo. I called the stores in Arkansas near their headquarters and they are selling guns and ammo.
Bad enough the unions are after them and now the lie that they are not selling guns spreading. I wish folks would physically visit the supercenters sporting goods dept and find out the truth.
Good for them!
Thank you for your service. No you get to greet the masses at Wally World for minimum wage.
I know all of that - I just want the spreaders of that lie to prove their claims (they can’t) or stop spreading the lies (they won’t because they hate walmart)
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...
As an added benefit, do you think our veterans might encourage people to buy products made in America?
Kudos to Walmart even though I rarely shop there...
