Wal-Mart Locks In Employees At Night
Workers Assail Night Lock-Ins by Wal-Mart
It's always good to see that Wal-Mart is so careful about it's workers. Wal-Mart evidentally locks their employees in at 10 percent of their 3500 stores nationwide. Locked in, as in, doors all locked. The problem? They don't always leave people with keys around.
Before you start saying, "Well, just leave that job", go take a look at Barbara Ehrenreich's Nickled And Dimed, an amazing and eye-opening book on working, among other places, at Wal-Mart. It's not always feasable for someone to leave a Wal-Mart job.

I recently read about the results of an audit of 25,000 Wal-Mart employees... out of them, something like 75,000 labor violations were found. They dispute this, of course, and maybe they're right on a lot of counts. Here's a link to one article: http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/retail/2004-01-13-walmart-labor_x.htm
