  • Breaking my back just to make ends meet.I was hired as a part time door greeter in 2007.That was fine because I am disabled. In early 2008, my husband was laid off at his decent paying job and got on at Wal-Mart part time. Because of his age and the hours and pay from Wal Mart, he had to take early Social Security. Before, he was getting at least 24 hours, but since October Wal-Mart has constantly cut his hours. This week he got 11 hours. It is hardly worth his time for that, but we need it to pay bills. | Read More

When I was initially hired, I asked for second shift so I could get my children on and off the school bus…. | Read More
