Our local news reported on a young man with cebebral palsy and he has worked for 10 yrs. as a greeter at Walmart. He has always used a walker and did his job. He loves working there and the regular customers like him and enjoy him. Well, Walmart is changing it's policy and job descriptions. Now, the man has to stand 8 hours and be able to lift 20 ibs He has until sometime in April to decide to stay or go.
This just drives me crazy. he's not applying now and can't do what the new job descrition requires. It's not like he was stacking pallets and suddenly can't. With all this kid deals with physically he still wants to work and it's a greeter for Pete's sake, and he's been there 10 years. A lot of people are on the kid's side and I hope he can keep his job.
Maybe I get more outraged because my sister is handicapped.

No, you deserved to be outraged, like most would be.
I hope he can keep his job!
That is just mean to take it away.
And he has an important job.

The greeter has the closest relationship with WalMart's customers, it's time WM begins treating ppl with respect. While the Walton family are sitting in their ivory towers, they have to realize that their employees are every bit as human as their customers. None of my money goes to that dive.

Terrible! SHAME SHAME SHAME! Hope ADA steps in!
@Onefineday ADA doesn't "step in". The young man needs to ask Walmart for an accommodation or exemption from a requirement he can't meet. Walmart can either modify their requirements or not. If they don't, the young man can then file a complaint.
