Former Walmart executive recounts how he would watch Associates sit in the break room during their lunch hour without eating because they couldn't afford food. Walmart banned management from offering Associates any money to buy lunch. Walmart's corporate philosophy is to "do more with less" -they want the associates to do more, while Walmart pays them less. Employees were required to work "off the clock" -and shaving minutes from worker's timecards was a common way to steal wages and keep labor costs under control. Employees would be fired for mere SUSPICION of discussing unionization. Workers were terminated for the slightest offenses to create a culture of fear. To Walmart, Associates are nothing more than disposable people.
