    They'll have the same amount of money as if they were working, for two months. And after that they're eligible for severance if they haven't found work. That's more than fair

    I thought that is what I said. You need to know the scope of the project and the location in order to address the required permits and inspections.

    What do you think "try to apply at other stores" means? Are these other stores seriously understaffed that they can absorb all these extra-employees? Or maybe Walmart is not an efficient operation that I've heard and that various stores in other areas can easily absorb dozens, and possibly hundreds of extra employees without affecting profitability/efficiency.

    Strangely you don't seem to have much doubt about "we need to close the store for up to six months but we don't know what repairs are needed". This is a situation that makes smart business sense to you?

    Yes, you are someone who is easily fooled.

Surely the people who run walmart must have hired some building inspectors to inspect the walmarts in question in order to know that these stores needed repairs and on what. Because how else would they have know that these stores needed to be closed up to six months for plumbing repair. I can't imagine any walmart store managers, supervisors, cashiers, greeters, cart gatherers and other people working at those walmarts being able to make that determination.Sure some of the walmart greeters might be retired plumbers or water and sewer department guys but I seriously doubt they would spend their free time looking all over a huge store for plumbing problems for free.

    Again, do you have any evidence that they won't be able to transfer? Nope

    Wouldn't they do that before closing the store down? How else would they have came to the decision to close down the store for up to 6 months if they have yet to inspect the store? I seriously doubt on april 12 they said they needed to close down the walmarts for 6 months and april 13 closed the stores down at 7 pm. They had to think about this decision for awhile,meaning they had plenty of time for inspectors and plenty of time to get the necessary permits.

I can't picture plumbing work back then being so shotty it would warrant closing the store for six months.Nor can I imagine it taking 6 months to fix plumbing problems.
    never done construction have you?
