Approximately 2,200 Walmart employees in four states are suddenly searching for work, after being notified they were fired from their positions, effective immediately. The reason for the mass layoff wasn’t financially related, as is typically the case, but what they were told didn’t sit well with the now jobless workers and is raising a lot of suspicion.
At around 2 p.m. on April 13, store employees in Texas, California, Florida and Oklahoma were told just hours before they were forced to gather their belongings and leave that the stores would be closed for “extended repairs” to their plumbing systems. The explanation sounds reasonable enough on its own, despite the suddenness of it, but the fact that it included so many stores simultaneously didn’t make much sense. Workers and others in their communities began speculating and concerns of something far more sinister started emerging.
“Everybody just panicked and started crying,” Venanzi Luna, a manager of the deli department at a Wal-Mart in Pico Rivera, California, said in an interview with Fox 8. At Venanzi’s store, 295 full-time employees and 248 part-time workers were delivered the disheartening notice.
Employees really want an honest explanation of why so many were let go, since there was not one mention or witness of sewer problems prior to the layoffs. Causing further curiosity is the fact that Walmart hasn’t filed for any building permits, which would be required for the kind of work they claimed to be embarking on.
