The Final Straw___CEO Doug McMillon

Why not have The Final Straw? Do I admire Sir Lawrence O’Donnell’s LAST WORD?  Ab-so-lute-ly!  CEO Doug McMillon said he would invest in the associates and the people.  Strange, you call a $63.00 bonus investing in the associates.  I will turn the clock back for a few seconds to express what my granny’s attitude would be.  Granny would say, “Stop being an ungrateful hef-fa” (hereford/cow).  She would get on her soap box and the sermon would go like this. “Be thankful for little things and greater things would be added.”  You think it would end there.  No! “Babygirl some people didn’t get nothing.”    Former Walmart US CEO Bill Simon bonus was 1.5 million dollars on top of his 10 million dollar salary and the associates got nothing. Well, I guess he could no longer deliver.   TIME to roll the clock forward. In all due respect to Granny we were never allowed to sassy her.  We really understood respect for the individual. Moving forward, Granny was right! Only the part of expressing how some people got nothing in the year of our LORD 2015, $63.00 is nothing compared to CEO Doug McMillon bonus which was $1,035,019.  CEO Doug McMillon package tripled and he got more WHOLE MILK . The 2% package was designated to the associates who got milked by the so-call wage increase which should have happened years ago.

The wage increase was not competitive and pay development was hindered.  Can Walmart afford more?  Ab-so-lute-ly! It is NOT beneficial to stay in a store where the new hires coming in make more than you. I care and I’m here to help the voices that are muted. I get this. Could this be a coverup for too many taps on the shoulder when you cannot justify a salary that is over the top and the associate getting paid is at the lowest level of management? Naughty! Naughty! I guess you would need a date to stipulate everyone who came in after the so-called big wage increase receive this amount and everyone else who stayed too long salary would be lower.  What a way to close the gap for the tap to keep from being sued.

Even worse is seeing the associates trying to obtain full-time hours.  The associates feel so embarrassed and ashamed coming to the register paying for their lunch with an EBT card. Did you see how much money is made off of SNAP from Walmart? Good LAWD!  After I read the articles Walmart Benefits From Billions In Government Subsidies:Study (Ned Resnikoff)  Walmart Workers Cost Tax Payers 6.2 Billion Dollars (Forbes), How Walmart Bosses Get Rich Off Of Welfare Abuse (Huffington Post Business), How McDonald’s And Walmart Became Welfare Queens (Bloomberg View) I was mortified, petrified and it was time to go get sanctified.  People do not wish to be stigmatized as lazy working 40 hours a week and still on Welfare.  How will  CEO Doug McMillon help Walmart move away from the stigma of Welfare Queen?

Yes, CEO Doug McMillon__AKA Babyface Nelson Got The Look. Don’t worry you will only starve to death with the low wages.  Just remember he cares about the associates and the people, you think.  Walmart needs to take lesson from companies that truly invest in their people like Costco, Winco, Trader Joes, Aldi. There are many companies who are not as large but are stepping up to the plate. This sermon has been repeated several times and Walmart needs to attend Church Monday-Friday. Everyone would like to have the weekend off. CEO Doug McMillon said he wanted the associates educated but it doesn’t go over well when you are learning about Walmart from the outside.  You have been labeled as a Walmart hater. It is ab-so-lute-ly insane to work for a company and know nothing about the company from inside out. CEO Doug McMillon has admitted all he knows is the Walmart he was taught. Whew!  The younger generation has a tendency to explore outside their boundaries.

The younger generation have more costly Zoo-Zoo’s and Wam-Wams (material items) and they do not wish to stay at Walmart for 30 years to max out at $18.00. By then Tim Cook’s (Mr Disruptive Innovator) I-WATCH would be out of date and those young adults will be living in the I-House. Yes,  I hope to live and see the large Apple House all computerize.   You can drive your I-House to a new location when you get sick and tired of the neighborhood.   From the view of your I-House you now live in a community surrounded by stores that treat their people right and the stores like Walmart and McDonald are not wearing the titles of Welfare Queens.

CEO Doug McMillon cares so much about the associates/management his team of Top Guns flew over the coo-coo nest and headed back to Tennessee for more pressing business. Not one word of wanting the TRUTH to be revealed.  It reminded me of the scene when CEO Doug McMillon ran up the stairs at the grass root meeting pretending to be shy and wanting the hype and PR of doing something really big.  Don’t worry Dailey KOS Doug McMillon will not get a PR Win.  It would be better to go show off those 63 news stores because they are all up to date.  The associates in the store had to once again suffer the trauma of jumping through hoops and was left on the side of the road shouting out for Mr Roarke (Ricardo Montalban). THE PLANE!  THE PLANE!  The associates are stranded on Fantasy Island.  We will feel the Wrath Of Khan because the captain, Randall Addison, and his 2 HOMIES will continue to abuse, retaliate, punish, discriminate, push out the older associates, cut the associates pay through their evaluations, cut the associates pay by stating the associates are too slow and not productive (no raise will be given because it keeps the associates on probation) deny transfers, intimidate, use excessive surveillance, putting all the elderly associates on the door and make sure NO ONE WILL EXCEED EXPECTATION. Who will uphold the law. Will it be the Market Manager? Will it be Chief Operating Manager? Will it be HR? Walmart’s Congress has not done their job. Who will be served the next F.

CEO Doug McMillon, I hope you know too much damage has already been done to the associates.  Do you really think it would matter if you gave this store manager 3 weeks to get the back room cleaned up?  Will the store be in better shape?  There was an article from the Business Insider by Ashley Lutz  dated 11/12/2014. The headlines read Wal-Mart Issues An Urgent Memo Begging Managers To Fix Supply Problems. On 11/14/2014 Walmart issued a bulletin: Your local Walmart Supercenter is having a hiring Event Friday 11/14/2014, 10am-12pm. On 11/19/2014 the big Per Randall Addison to do list comes out with almost 30 things broken in the store but NO SOLUTION to fix them. How many times has Gerald Hendrickson (Market Manager) and Patrick Shanks (Director of Operations) has come to this store with a can of Whip A..?  Will Do-Do hit the fan? Will these guys jobs come under scrutiny because of Randall Addison and his two servants who helped screwed it up?   Will Randall Addison’s bosses be the next recipient of the “F” award? Look at it this way. If  CEO Doug McMillon__Aka BabyFace Nelson received and “F” you know when the Do-Do hits the fan it will blow all over the place. Depending on geographical location I’m quite sure CEO Doug McMillon does not want to be viewed as a Gangster or Thug. Either way Wal-Marts are all over the map so both label stands.

This store needed people all along but fail to hire. Let me correct this statement. The people who got hired was fired on, before and after 90 days. No hours were designated for the 3rd shift. The major focus of hours was placed on the 1st and 2nd shift.  The customers just had to wait and eat cake. Walmart didn’t mind cutting hours on the 3rd shift. There was nothing to cut.  A team of people were brought into the store and here we are in 2015 trying to fix another massive problem. The first problem was never resolve.  Bringing a team of workers in from another store to whip this store back in shape won’t help.  HIRE MORE PEOPLE and raise everyone’s wages.  If you want your grade brought up let’s begin with doing a REMODEL on this store and all the stores on Walmart’s map that needs to be upgraded. Be a job creator.  Store #2857 has not been remodeled since 2007. Stop the GREED and fulfill the NEEDS of the associates and ask them what they want done to improve their environment.  Make it an inclusive environment for people with unique abilities by providing the appropriate tools to do the job.  You know if the mainstream was not accommodated the associates that were labeled disable got nothing and are no longer at this store.

I have written many BLUEPRINTS for parents who needed benchmarks for their children to become successful in one task so they could achieve the next goal.  I know and understand how CAMS (Compensation, Accommodation, Modifications and Strategies) work. Walmart did not come close under the law providing the necessary means for people with unique abilities to do the job or become successful in their task.  Why? The majority of the staff did not have a clue or the expertise of what to do just like many of the school systems.  Even in the work force ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL.  Since CEO Doug McMillon likes educations then lets start by educating and training his people from the top to be an INCLUSIVE WORK FORCE and pray that the knowledge trickle down.  I did not come here to WHINE and MOAN but to offer SOLUTIONS. HAMMIT!  Our store associates don’t want the CEO flying overhead because of FEAR of what he might see.  The Truth is Good. Clean house, keep what is good and throw out the bad.  Open the Door Wide. If you no longer want the aging associates 40 plus at Walmart just buy the associates out rather than getting sued for age discrimination.  Consider buying out those associates who are close to retiring rather than getting sued for forcing individuals out without the option to volunteer on their own. Keep the good ship lollypop up and lawsuits will roll in or another class action lawsuit.

Not one associate or manager at this store wants to see Randall Addison keep his position. Even his 2 Homies in crime is tired of him. If you think I’m lying just ask all the managers and associates who defected to the GLADSTONE, LIBERTY, and other stores in or out of the district or state. Call around. They could no longer work at store #2857 and has made it clear they would never come back to this store unless it gets cleaned up.  Who wants to save a guy’s job who threatens his management team to work 12 hours for the next 3 weeks and strip management vacation away? Who in their right mind wants to save this manager’s job who is strolling around with constant threatening behavior and has the entire staff in total FEAR.  Would it change Randall Addison attitude after 3 weeks?  Now we have overtime when the associates needed overtime and a wage increase all along.  More people should have been hired to avoid understaffing.

The Per Randall Addison Syndrome has the associates so bullied and frighten even on their breaks they have continued to work. The cashiers had to stand by the time clock and was not allowed to clock in a minute before their time.  The store had lines of people but the cashier was afraid of getting a personal discussion or coached. Walmart punishes the associates at store #2857 and place associates where they cannot be successful. Just ask around. Many of the associates are so numb they figure nothing will ever change. The associates had their hours stripped away whenever they worked overtime.  Why do you think overtime would be a big incentive?  Here comes the NO EXCUSE LIST.  If the associates hours were not killed before the next pay period they would be rewarded by a personal discussion or a coaching. Some reward. Why don’t the associates have a Town Hall Meeting? Who set the example of keeping all the big money at the TOP. Bill Simon is still on the board as a consultant. Don’t forget the 140 million dollar man, Mike Duke. CEO Doug McMillon has his Ear-Beats turn up so loud it is drowning the associates outs. Looks like another DRE day. It is all about the money NOT THE BASE.

For a very long TIME I felt along. The associates wasn’t protesting and were too afraid to do anything.  Watching the KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE on MSNBC gave me hope and was quite encouraging.  It has given me the strength to continue writing a very rigorous paper trail.  Eric Holder, the former Attorney General was taunted by Darrell Issa.  Darrell Issa, former Chairman of the Government Reform Committee never reform and never had the facts. Nothing Issa presented never seem to fit.  He could never deliver a conviction against Attorney General Holder and he never adapted to change.  Congress kidnapped the confirmation hearing of the Loretta Lynch, the next Attorney General.   Rachel Maddow, aka Secret Agent RA RA delivered a story that cut the light bulb on.   It was the trials and tribulation of Loretta Lynch who made it a real tribute for me.  Connecting the dots became so much clearer. It makes me want to scream, “MOJITA!”  I never drank a day in my life. It’s ALL GOOD.

Why is Congress so afraid of Loretta Lynch? Bottom line She fits in. It has been proven Loretta Lynch will deliver. She is very adaptable to change. This is the struggle CEO Doug McMillon is faced with. His salary has tripled. Who will CEO Doug McMillon blame? Will CEO Doug McMillon blame Walmart if he fails?  What happens if CEO Doug McMillon doesn’t fit in? Will CEO Doug McMillon say it was more than he expected? Will CEO Doug McMillon say he struggled with developing relationships inside the company?  Will CEO Doug McMillon say the arena was too big?  Will CEO Doug McMillon become overwhelmed and his strengths devoured by his weaknesses?  CEO Doug McMIllon is the new driver of  a company who is very slow on adapting to changes.  Walmart is behind the TIMES and need massive repairs.  Will CEO Doug McMillon be the next high price paid victim who came onboard and delivered empty promises? Who will suffer the biggest consequence? WHY?

I would love to have Attorney General Eric Holder of the United States, Loretta Lynch currently the Eastern District of New York Prosecutor and future successor to  Attorney General Eric Holder , Attorney General of Missouri Kris Koster, and Thomas Perez, Labor Secretary of the United States to conduct and Independent Investigation of Walmart.  Maybe this will help CEO Doug McMillon bring his grade up. While it is on my mind, Henry Waxman, former Chairman of the Government Reform Committee would be an excellent choice to put together a team of attorneys just like he did with the tobacco industry. Waxman held the tobacco industry accountable and made the tobacco industry do anti-tobacco campaigns and also fund them. Wouldn’t it be something if  Henry Waxman gave Walmart The Final Straw.  Using  Waxman’s  technique to hold Walmart accountable by enforcing Walmart to do Human Rights Commission, EEOC/FEPA commercial.  Special funds should be set aside for the associate to try their case and Walmart should be designated to pay for all of the Plaintiffs legal fees. It would give the associates a check and balance so they won’t feel Human Resource  (HR) is the only choice. This would be a great sense of relief to the associates.

Dedicated to All Walmart associated across the nation.

Walmart CEO Doug McMillon__Aka BabyFace Nelson

Good morning Doug McMillon! This is Linda from store #2857 in Kansas City Missouri. I read the interview CEO Inherited Big Problems.  Whatever you inherited the associates/management inherited 3 times as worst. Their voices, spirits, and the ability to fight back has been stripped away.  I wish Money.cnn.com had gotten in contact with me.  Grading your performance would be very easy.   You get an F. Why? Doug, you wasn’t honest with the associates. You know Doug, it’s very troubling the associates at store #2857  hasn’t taken an interest to learn more about the company. The associates/management rights are violated on a daily basis. Through the fog there is not one glimmer of HOPE or CHANGE.  There is no OPPORTUNITY at Walmart. The biggest confusion for the associates is focusing on the money and not understanding how Walmart really works.  Maybe you could give me a glimmer of HOPE and CHANGE on my belated birthday by answering some of my questions.  How would you restore TRUST to the associates?  Do you think the associates  will be able to TRUST you when they find out your raise increased by 168%?   Why were the associates hours cut?  Why did the associates have to kill their overtime? What! Profit before the people. Is this the reason why Walmart remained neutral in the debate of raising the minimum wage?

Doug increase had to come first. Doug came into the company at 9.5 million dollars and his salary has skyrocketed to 25.6 million dollars.  WOW!  Can you explain how your money package work? The associates worked extremely hard to keep Walmart on the map. Don’t you think the associates raise should be increased to $15.00 dollars an hour? Bernie Sanders, senator from Vermont, strongly advocates for increase wages of associates to help lift Walmart associates out of the poverty level. I just wanted to let Senator Bernie Sanders know I agree with him whole-heartedly and I was paying attention. The 2% increase for the associates with the salary cap was quite disturbing. I feel the associates got milked. Why hasn’t there been a salary cap on David Glass, Lee Scott, Mike Duke, and Bill Simon Salaries? How is it possible that the 1%  is rewarded for their INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS? These guys handle the scandals,  got paid, and remain on Walmart’s board. Why didn’t everyone from Walmart get a salary increase across the board?  Doug McMillon did not fail to almost TRIPLE his salary but he cares about the ASSOCIATES. Who wears the face of INEQUALITY?  Aka Babyface Nelson steps out on stage to appear innocent and naive knowing all along it is about POWER, CONTROL, and MONEY.  Walmart brought along the face of Doug McMillon to convince the associates and the people Doug is a sheep and not a wolf dressed up in sheep clothing.  Body language tells more than words. I wanted the Knights of the Round Table MSNBC to know this article is located at Money@readingeagle.com.

In Doug’s interview with  CNN Money he stated he listen to his critics Mike Duke and Lee Scott. I found the article about Mike Duke, Ex Walmart CEO’s Deferred pay: $140 million dollars quite interesting. WHOOO! I feel like I’m reading about Alphonse “Al” Capone and his strong-arm guy Frank Nitti (Francesco Raffaele Nitto).   Reading about Mike Duke and Lee Scott the 1% People Behind  The Walmart Empire is quite an educational moment. WOW! Lee Scott at that Time owned $200 million dollars in stock shares. In the year 2006 Lee Scott receive one of those packages that boosted his salary to $29.7 million dollars. Doug needs to explain what is inside those PACKAGES. What is wrong with the associates PACKAGES?  Why is it always the person at the bottom who has to sacrifice so much?  In 2005 Lee Scott salary was $15.7 million dollars. Lee Scott got a 100% increase the next year.  Is Doug McMillon trying to become the next 140 million dollar man?  What is Doug McMillon trying to learn from his critics? I guess the associates really did not get a real increase nor escape from poverty.  How can Doug McMillon convince the associates he is listening to the people instead of listening to the 1% and their money? How can Doug McMillon convince the associates that Walmart work for the associates and customers?

Has the minimum wage Roll Out an admission of guilt or shame on Walmart behalf? I never like 2% milk but WHOLE milk is fattening. The perception of low-end jobs will always remain at Walmart as long as the 1%  Behind Walmart’s Empire receive 100% plus in salary increases with no caps.  It looks like it doesn’t matter what  INTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS the 1% Force Behind Walmart’s Empire displays.  Where are the OPPORTUNITIES in Walmart? Who benefits the most from Walmart’s Opportunities? Is this how the Empire Strikes Back? The salaries Doug McMillon’s crew received made me see STARS.  Money matters can definitely cause WARS. All those years George Lucas was watching The Walton’s.  John Boy and his brothers are now the upgraded version of the Koch Brothers.  Who are the UNTOUCHABLES?

Our President had a town hall meeting. He pointed out the laws Congress would not pass to promote equality for the people.  The President gave me a huge birthday president.  His Selma Speech was riveting.  “Don’t throw away your voice.”   I will try to strike every chord.  Appeasement had no place in the President decision-making process.  We have a President who understands the development of cognitive abilities.  The associates voices are in a coma. Store #2857 is in great danger. This is the next ConAgra incident waiting to happen. The Congress in this region would be Gerald Hendrickson-Market Team Manager, Patrick Shanks-Director of Operations, Delinda Davis-HR. This store is in big trouble psychologically, physically, and emotionally. Why? Randall Addison wants control over the register tape, boxes of bags at the front-end, and the toilet tissue in the bath room. The worse message any corporation can send is you can get any employee for a dime a dozen. Randall Addison has sent the message.  The associates/management is in FEAR of losing their jobs and pushed out before they can retire. The retaliation,  verbal abuse, harassment, discrimination (age/race) and the excessive surveillance is blatant. Many associates have fled the store to other stores. It is TIME for their Congress to get off their A… and do something. Many complaints have been reported and their Congress has turned a blind eye.  The associates/management is in FEAR of worse punishment if they step outside of Walmart and ask for help. It is Time for their Congress do their part before someone die from the stress of all the unrealistic demands made by Randall Addison, before the associates drink themselves to death,  over medicate themselves or someone gets killed.  I care about the associates and the customers, I am not afraid, and appeasement ain’t happening.  I  requested that an Independent Investigation by both Attorney Generals (Federal and State) and the Department of Labor Secretary Thomas Perez be brought in.  The mental abuse the associates/management has suffered is UNBELIEVABLE! This will be the second store Randall Addison would have taken down. Stop recycling people who needs to be fired. Take responsibility! What happens when the pattern of behavior doesn’t change? INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR!

Doug McMillon had a town hall meeting.  For years different teams handpick by Walmart stood by and acted just like Congress.  Associates in the store lost faith in HR.   Directives were followed and HR did ab-so-lute-ly nothing.  They had no plan. Appeasement is the number one rule to a solution.  Walmart works for Walmart and not the associates.   Just like our Congress works for the 1% and NOT the people, Walmart is the 1%.  Yes, I did see the Town Hall Meeting.  I would like for the associates to turn their attention to the World’s High Net Worth Selfie: 1 trillion Dollars.  Look whose face is  gleaming over the 257.4 Billon dollar company he runs.  Doug McMillon of course!  This was the net worth of Walmart in 2014. Makes your head spin.  I recall Doug McMillon stated he had issues with Trust.  The moderator ask questions at the Disruptive Innovators! World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2014 which can be revisited on YOUTUBE.   I have issues with all the money Walmart receives and their employees got nothing but abused. I like to hold a letter town hall meeting. It is too cold in Kansas City, Missouri for outside protesting. I thought it would be innovative and sit by the computer with my favorite cup of tea. Maharaja Chai Oolong tea which is really good and protest against Walmart. Walmart the ones with Bad Business Practices and False Information. Walmart gets everything wrong about the associates and destroys the Credibility of the associated. One of  Walmart strategies to get away with not paying UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS to the associates whom they fire. Constructive Discharge is the bigger picture. NOT THE MONEY but the BENEFIT. Who escape paying? Welcome To Walmart.

Will Doug McMillon ever consider cutting the big dollar salaries and bonuses off the board?   This would be a way to really increase the employees salaries.   Doug McMillon can take a lesson from Raymond Burse.  This is what I call leading by example. Raymond Burse,  President Of Kentucky University, Takes $90,000 Pay Cut To Give 24 Minimum Wage Workers A Wage.  Just think Doug McMillon if the Empire Strike Back and start donating parts of their salary who knows it might help restore faith and hope. That’s right, Walmart foundation has a policy if you don’t like the foundation’s agenda the people behind the scene cannot be voted out.  That idea might really piss your boss off and Doug may no longer be allowed on the trillion Dollar Selfie. Can CEO Doug McMillon say “Ya-Hoo-oo-oo?  The same model probably would apply to their board members and management in the stores.  Bottom line, there is no job creation in the world of Walmartization.  Who runs a nation of  privatization of schools? Walmart supports charter schools and vouchers. When Public Schools fail they are out. Private sector fails they get bailed out.  What areas are always targeted? Exactly! Low income areas are always the mark. Look what Scott Walker, governor of Wisconsin did to Wisconsin University. Scott Walker cut 300 million dollars from this public university. Scott Walker privatized K-12 educations.  This undermines public education.  Was this a scene taken right out of Walton’s playbook?   Who contributed mega bulks to the Keystone XL Tar Sand Pipeline?  Correct! The Walton’s shuffled out mega bulk to have the pipeline go through. It boils down to damaging the environment (sustainability), low-wage jobs, and undermining education through privatization. We are back to POWER, CONTROL, and MONEY. How can Doug McMillon separate himself from the ideology of WALTON’S PLAYBOOK and say he cares about the associates and the people? Are we looking at a failing Dynasty without a legacy?

Doug McMillon (CEO Walmart Inc.), Judith McKenna (Chief Operating Officer US Walmart), and Gregg Foran (President and CEO Walmart US) you wanted to know what the associates Hear, See, and Feel. The associates at store #2857 HEAR they are worthless, they can be replaced, NO ONE WILL EXCEED EXPECTATION, management vacations will be stripped away if they do not have the back room straighten out in 2 weeks, NO EXCUSES, they work too slow, constant shouting, bullying, and cursing. The associates/management SEE a store manager spiraling downward out of control, manipulative, angry, a bully, and insecure along with 2 co-managers as his watchdogs.  The associates/management see themselves being ripped apart and demeaned in front of each other and customers. The associates/management can no longer believe in Walmart 3 basis beliefs when the store manager has violated every belief.   The associate FEEL the hurt, pain, shame, of never being able to do enough.  The appeasement has caused a mental death and a coma induced by FEAR.  There is no HOPE, CHANGE, OPPORTUNITY and FUTURE in Walmart at least not at store #2857 location.

I am not the Voice of Walmart but an associates who truly cares. I have a VOICE and a CHOICE and I will not throw my VOICE away. I am not asking the associates/management to believe in me but to BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES. I understand the consequences for standing up and holding Walmart accountable. Walmart size should never matter when it comes to accountability.  I have paid the price over and over again.  I will continue to file with HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION whenever my rights are violated.  There is a path we must all choose.  My walk has brought me back home. I understand the meaning of I will cross that bridge when I get there.   SELMA is the reflection of TIME to look back and move FORWARD and to continue to Hope for Change.
