For all the complaints against CM - as long as they are able to fly under the radar they will do so. We have an ally in the form of rising star Caroline Heldman who is a frequent contributor on FOX News. She would like to expose CM but her editor at Ms. Magazine is afraid of being sued. However, far more people watch FOX. Caroline is a frequent guest on Neil Cabuto show and is now on O'Reilly several times a month. Contact FOX - email these shows and tell them what you have stated. It should get the ball rolling in our favor.

    Do you have an e-mail address for Caroline Heldman? All I could find was her blog.

    "whistle blower" retlation. When I was hired by Crossmark, my mother was also hired. The RES that hired us, is the same one who promoted me to a Lead position. My mother was still working with me. Nothing was said about direct relatives working together. This same RES was the one who pushed to get me her RES position. I was promoted and my mother was still working with me.
    I recived a call from my boss, about three weeks ago, saying it was brought to her attention that there was a violation of company policy to have my mother working in the same store. Her boss was "really bummed out and didn't want to lose me". I was told that I could resign - "but we don't want you to do that", I could go to the Bristol store - "you don't want to drive that far" so "you need to git rid of your mom". I was told to contact my old boss - who was still with Crossmark with the Walmart division, to have her transfered. I asked what kind of time line I had as my mother was 75 and finding a job wasn't easy. I was never given an answer.
    I contacted my old boss, she had no openings. Mom has been searching for another job. I had a conservation with my boss on 1/19/2012, she called me asking if I had this problem taken care of. I told her my mother was still working, there were no openings with Walmart. My mother was lokking for a job with no luck. I started to say "So, you want me to fire her with out another job to go to?' and the phone went dead. I tryed to discuss this with mt boss 4 times that day.
    Thats the last contact I had with my boss until I recived my termination call on 1/21/2012. On that call I was able to ask "So, does this mean my mother still has a job? " Answer "Oh absolutly!".
    Before my promotion to Lead, there was another lead whose mother was also working at the same store. When I was promoted to RES, that lead's mother was still working there. My old boss "created an opening" - she fired a Walmart rep. and moved this other lead's mother into this position. I have e-mails about this move.
    I think, could this be the real reason I was temed?

    PLEASE CALL the State Labor Board!!! File a Complaint- -at least let them KNOW what is going on!
    The more people who contact their State Labor Boards, the sooner they can ACT. If the company is breaking Labor Laws, they WILL ACT. If you had no notice of company policy regarding relatives working in the same store, you may have a case. The company will, no doubt, try to put that on you(you, they will claim, are responsible for knowing company policy- BUT if they did NOT furnish, or make available, this policy, then you may have a case- and you may win damages for your termination(providing you don't work in a 'right-to-work' state, or they may have some other way (via company structure) to avoid following laboe laws. In that case, call your State Legislature office, and bring the matter to their attention that this company has managed to avoid State Labor Laws by doing this or that, and ask them to pass legislature to close that loop hole! It may take some time and diligence on your part, but it will ultimately help[ EVERYONE who is being abused by these types of employers.
    Also contact the Better Business Bureau, and file a complaint. This company is currently NOT a member, but they will still take the complaint, and it can be viewed by anyone trying to find out whether that company is a 'good or bad' company. The more informed we are, the better able we are to make sound decisions. Please call these places ASAP!

    That would be the key point IF they are breaking the law so far they a flying under radar.
    For example they are hiring in new hires with no experience at $12.00 and hour and now they are cutting my hours I have been with the company for 3 years am team lead and am currently at $10.50 and hour I was at $11.25 but had to take a leave came back 6 months later and had to accept the $10.50. They can get a way with this because e it is not illegal to hire a new hire in at a higher rate than a current employee nor is illegal to hire new hires when there is not enough work for the ones a company has. It is time lawmakers got their heads out of corporate ### and passes legislature illegalizing both of those hiring practices
