Fox 5 NY - A Walmart worker quit in a profanity-laced tirade over the Louisiana store’s loudspeakers.
Beth McGrath’s posted the video of her resignation on Facebook.
"Attention Walmart shoppers and associates, my name is Beth from electronics," Beth McGrath said over the store’s PA system. "I’ve been working at Walmart for almost five years and I can say that everyone here is overworked and underpaid."
In a Facebook video she posted of the stunt, McGrath said, "The attendance policy is bullshit. We’re treated from management and customers poorly every day. Whenever we have a problem with it, we’re told that we’re replaceable."
"I’m tired of the constant gaslighting," McGrath went on to say. "This company treats their elderly associates like shit. To Jarred, our store manager, you’re a pervert. Greta and Kathy, shame on y'all for treating our associates the way you do. I hope you don’t speak to your families the way you speak to us."
She ended the 1:11 video with "Fuck management and fuck this job. I quit."
She posted the video on Facebook with the comment, "On to better things."
Props to this lady. The term gaslighting is one of the most overused words in the game right now, but it couldn't be more applicable here. Beth McGrath is right. Wal-Mart managers telling employees that complain that they're replaceable is an absolute laugher.
Have you been in a big box retail store recently?
Have you been anywhere where money is exchanged recently?
It's a ghost town, and utter chaos.
In Chicago, it's been skeleton crews around the clock just about everywhere for months now. If you don't wanna stock shelves, greet customers at the door, or work the check-out line, you can easily walk into any restaurant in the city and wash dishes and get paid $20 an hour right now. That's how desperate places are for bodies.
So more power to Beth here, and any other overworked, underpaid and underappreciated worker schlepping away for the man. Life's too short to be miserable. Go somewhere you're valued and/or happy.
Fuck Greta and Kathy. And fuck that pervert Jarred. Beth out.
