Video Cams in Bathrooms at Wal-Mart

. Saturday, December 26


ABCNews reports that employees at an Easton, PA Wal-Mart store filed a case on Dec 21 for illegal surveillance of customers and employees via an off-the-shelf video camera placed in a unisex bathroom/changing room in the Tire and Lube department.

Wal-Mart denied knowledge of the camera and fired two loss-prevention employees for installing it. Three of the complaining employees were fired, one quit, and three others remain.

This is yet another example of how the world’s largest retailer can do whatever they want. It is no surprise, and just another notch on the growing list of uncivil and inhuman its practices and policies have become.

I’ve heard it said a million times: “Sam Walton would turn over in his grave if he knew what his store has become.”
