Court Affirms $151M Ruling Against Walmart For Making Employees Work Off The Clock

When employees claim that their employer systematically forces them to work through breaks or other times during which they aren’t getting paid, how far do they have to go to prove that this is not a fluke particular to just a few stores? This is the question at the core of Walmart’s most recent appeal of a 12-year-old lawsuit that could cost the company nearly $200 million.

I know someone who works at WalMart because is is the only place he can get a job. If he were to complain about having to work off the clock they will just replace him with someone as needy as him that WILL work off the clock. It is really nice to have these rules in place but walk a mile in these peoples shoes and see that they do not work because you cannot play "big brother" with places like WalMart.

Ask anyone who has ever worked at Walmart, it is a crappy place to work! It shows in the poor customer service as well. I only go there as a last resort, if the other stores don't have what I am looking for. I hate shopping there and I hate having to stand in long lines with just a few registers open. I cancelled my membership with Sam's club just because of that issue. The corporate sucks!!!
