Greedy Walmart At It Again.
Walmart is introducing self scanners in a move to get rid of cashiers altogether. They will put on fewer cashiers to encourage people to use the scanners, then they will justify employing fewer cashiers by saying that people prefer to use the scanners.
Right now each Walmart store makes millions of dollars and the profits go to the USA, but at least some money stays here in the form of wages. When they start laying off cashiers it means even less money stays here.
Please don’t use these scanners. I realize you might have to stand in line for 5 more minutes (it might seem like longer but typically it’s not long at all), but if it means thousands of dollars stay in our area every month and more people have jobs then it is worth it.
Otherwise use the scanners but don’t complain when more people are unemployed and on welfare.
