Wal-Mart Complaint - Wal Mart doesn't treat men and women equal
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- One thing particular I have noticed at Wal Mart is that they never make women employess get shopping carts from the lot, they only let men employees get shopping carts and that is not right.Women are just as capable of getting shopping carts as men are. Wal Mart won't even allow their female associates to get shopping carts from the parking lot and that is really agravating, not to mention, discrimination. I don't expect for women employees to get carts all by themselves but I do want to see both men and women getting shopping carts.That way it is fair and equal. It's not right to give women all the easy work and make men do the hard work now is it? I don't think so! I also noticed that whenever a customer needs help lifting a heavy item or needs help out to their car with merchandise, they always make men do it. Anything a man does a woman can do and anything a woman does a man can do. Some women are a lot stronger than you think and some men aren't very strong at all. There have been female associates that wanted to get shopping carts and Wal Mart wouldn't let them. Now that's going to come to an end. If a woman wants to get shopping carts from the parking lot, Wal Mart should let her. There is no reason that Wal Mart should say "no" to something like this especially beacause it's not fair. Men need a break from getting carts so that's why women and men should work together to pick up shopping carts. I have never heard of a store that won't allow women employees to get shopping carts. It's crazy. Publix always makes both men and women get shopping carts so does K Mart and so does every other store in the world so why doesn't Wal Mart? Men are going to start complaining sooner or later. Whenever I go into Wal Mart, I hear over the intercom pager "I need a male associate to pick up a heavy item". For your information, it does not have to be a male associate and hearing Wal Mart say "male associate" really agravates me. What you need to say is "I need an associate to pick up a heavy item". It can be either male or female. It doesn't matter as long as an associate responds. So from now on, whenever I go to any Wal Mart store, I expect this "male associate" nonsense to be over with. Like I say, I don't expect for women to do all of the hard heavy work all by themselves but I do expect to see Wal Mart treating all employees equal regardless of whether they are a male or a female. Women and men should work as a team at Wal Mart and there is absolutely no job that a woman can not do and there is absolutely no job that a man can not do.
