The Walmart Employee Rule That Had Reddit Raging
Although Walmarts are a common sight across the U.S., many Americans aren’t fans of the retail giant for certain practices — like eliminating small businesses and taking advantage of incomeless and desperate employees. However, one particular Walmart rule has a lot of Redditors raging.
On a Walmart subreddit, user BevsWalkingSticks posted an image of a laminated card that employees must wear — the card reads, “I can't accept tips, but I can accept donations!” on a logo for the Children's Miracle Network. Per the user, this is just to get a tax write-off, and they found it demeaning for the employees.
Other users, however, were sympathetic, saying that employees should be allowed to accept tips to compensate for their low paychecks. A self-proclaimed Walmart employee shared, "I heard my SM yell at the customer service TL saying that she HAS to get customers to donate," adding, "[...] everyone who shops/work [sic] here is poor."
In all fairness, Walmart has been a part of the Children's Miracle Network since 1987, having raised $50 million in 2021 through fundraisers and charities across its North American locations. Though it seems Walmart employees would want the chain to notice their plight and show them some respect as well.
