In order to address some of the financial issues that have plagued their employees during the pandemic, before the pandemic, and in the last few decades, allowing employees to access the money from their upcoming checks with the “Walmart Employee Payday Loan Program.”
“WEPLP is designed to allow employees to obtain the funds they earn prior to payday to combat the challenges of these troubling times. By accessing their funds the employees will be able to have the money placed into their account the same day and will pay back their 50% interest on their future checks.” The corporate heavyweight’s CEO Carl McMillon stated in a press release. “Before employees would have to seek assistance from government programs like welfare and food stamps, or seek payday loans from outside companies. Now they can come right to their employer for the advance they need to keep up the payment of the car they and their families live in.”
Walmart also announced the construction of nationwide employee dormitories as an alternative option for employees looking to avoid the parking lot. The program appropriately title the “Walmart Cares Employee Project”.
“For 90% of the employee’s weekly check. We will clothe, feed, and house our employees, McMillon said. “This arrangement will be in place as long as employees agree to the terms and conditions. Those being that employees will work 16 hour days, avoid exiting the property, and never speak to their friends or family ever again.”
Any defectors will be dealt with swiftly and harshly.
“Employees who refuse to participate in the ‘Walmart Cares’ project will be sold to another company or executed on site.”
