My wife is unaffected by the insurance thing because she is on my insurance policy and my company doesn't screw people like that.
Not meant as anything but a question. Why does she stay?
Because what other retailer is going to pay her $16+ an hour to do what she does? She's been there so long she's *censored* herself as she can't go anywhere else. She applied at several places, even went on a few interviews. They have openly laughed in her face when it comes to her pay. "You want how much? LOL The going rate is $9 an hour, you'll be lucky to get $10."
We struggle on her pay as it is. I couldn't imagine her taking a $6-8 paycut to get out of the Walmart penitentiary system. We'd lose our shack within a month.
