    Walmart employee forced to wear a yellow vest after boss found out he was gay.

    A Las Vegas man who held a temporary job at Walmart says he was stripped of all his responsibilities and made to wear a yellow vest after telling his manager that he's gay.

    Yeah, really dickish but I dont think he has any recourse. If anything its a call to start looking for new work.

    With absolutely no evidence, one guy is claiming that one manager at a store treated him badly. Lawsuits like this are astoundingly common, so I'm not sure what we're supposed to take from it even if we assume that he's telling the truth.

    I bet there's more to this story than what this dude is telling.

    Probable reality:
    Employee dude - Mr. Manager, I'm gay!

    Manager - Really? How nice. Hey, can you go help pick up buggies in the parking lot? Oh, and wear this yellow vest, for safety reasons. It's so you don't get runned over.

    This cat's version of reality:
    Employee Dude - Mr. Manager, I'm gay!

    Manager - Really? Well, then wear this yellow vest, in that case. And, since you're gay, go pick up buggies in the parking lot.

    I wonder what kind of real responsibility this guy had, working at Wal Mart, anyway.

    Is this how it's going to be in the new outta-control PC world? "They be pickin' on me because I'm gay"? Spare me!!!

    Re: Walmart employee forced to wear a yellow vest after boss found out he was gay.

    After reading the article I'm not sure who to believe.

    If he was being so rudely treated and especially made to wear a different colored vest directly because he was gay - then why'd he go along with it for a while?

    "I was completely ignored and shunned," he wrote in a complaint to the rights commission. "I had nothing to do all day but wander around the store wearing a yellow vest no one else had to wear, much like Jews had to wear a yellow star of David in Hitler's Germany."

    The dude, though, lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. . .I don't see a homophobe being able to roost and spawn very successfully.

    *edit*
    Now I'm laughing over this - imagining someone walking aimlessly around the store with nothing to do.
    Have you BEEN in a Walmart? Heck - I shopped at a Walmart in Vegas, might have been the same one! There is ALWAYS something to do.

    So the guy at least is a crappy employee with no "go do it" inspiration.

    What kind of self-respecting gay man works at Walmart?

    Aren't there any Starbucks in Vegas?
