Dear Wal-Mart,

I often hear in the news allegations about how underpaid your employees are, and I’ve read articles online accusing your stores of such things as not paying overtime and discriminating against women. Well, what I want to know is does nobody think of the consumer?

If your stores were forced to pay workers a living wage the costs of goods would go up. Same goes for overtime. I don’t know what these workers are complaining about. In the current economy they are lucky to have jobs at all! And why should you pay women as much as men? Or promote them as fast? Women can’t lift as much, aren’t as effective in deterring theft as men, aren’t as rational, and get tired faster (they also aren’t generally as good at math). In a retail environment these are important things. Lastly, women get pregnant and can’t be relied on to show up at work for 12 consecutive months!

It would serve your employees right if they were suddenly unable to afford to shop at the very store that employs them. Or worse, if their store went under because people stopped shopping there due to cost increases.

Seems to me that a lot of the complaining comes from people unwilling to take responsibility for their lives. I mean, no child dreams of working at Wal-Mart someday. People work there because they lack the education to get a better paying job, or because they failed to plan adequately for retirement, not because they dreamed of someday wearing Wal-Mart blue.

They need to get over it!

Sincerely,


Christopher L. Jorgensen

Commentary:

Yeah, I don’t get why they didn’t write back.

Wal-Mart pisses me off a lot. My second, real letter to these asshats, also went unanswered. I no longer have that letter online, but you can read it on my facebook page:  Shitty Customer Service.
