I judged that inquiry as an attempt to see if Wal-Mart had really "put its money where its mouth is" and enacted a policy change versus just trumpeting about one to the media and not altering the way that it does business. I worked in a large corporation that had some interesting policies and worked hard to make sure that all of its management knew about those policies AND conveyed them to the work force. Not every company is as vigorous in the dissemination of policy. And, in some cases, it does take weeks and even months before any details about a new policy filter down to those that are expected to carry it out. I've never seen how Wal-Mart informs its managers so I won't speculate.parabelum wrote: ↑Mon Sep 09, 2019 11:15 pm
Folks there are barely breaking minimum wage to support their own families. Why not just be discreet about it?
I get the passion, but dang man, why even go there?
The greeter and security folks have NO say in the matter whatsoever. The ol sayin...stop while you’re ahead...
My editorial comment is that Wal-Mart has an overly generous policy of dealing with shop-lifters and thieves. In some places, they do seem to have security and will pursue shoplifters and in others, not so much. I cannot imagine them more vigorously enforcing a no-OC policy than they do policies against shoplifting.
I try to make a habit out of talking to Wal-Mart greeters while entering and exiting stores. One of them I believed knew me by sight as I did her. After OC was implemented, I paused one time and asked her if she had seen anyone carrying a visible firearm and she said that she had. I was most interested in her reaction and was curious to see if she had any specific instruction regarding OC. If she had been instructed, she didn't share it but said that she had her LTC and was happy to see people exercising their rights. I think that collecting information from others is not a bad thing.
