Re: “Wal-Mart case sets ‘job bias’ precedent” (TNT, 6-21).

The real reasons that people are mad are because of Wal-Mart’s disrespect of the individual and the way that employees are treated. Once Wal-Mart does not want them anymore, it finds excuses to get rid of them.

It has nothing to do with money; we are only asking for justice and equality, regardless of beliefs or sex.

I once thought that the store and the people of Wal-Mart were a family, but after six years of being a Wal-Mart employee, it simply became slavery. I am all for justice, respect and treating people as humans – nothing less than that.
