We have all been there. Every single one at some point wanted to tell everyone how bad they felt at work, but didn’t really have the chance. Majority probably were afraid of losing their job, while some were probably just ashamed to that publicly.
But none of those apply for this brave Walmart worker from Louisiana who decided to quit her job at Walmart over the microphone while there were plenty of customers in the store at the time. And her video that she posted online went viral immediately. She really had what to say there.
According to MDMH-Pine Bluff, one Walmart worker had enough of working there with all of company’s policies and the toxic working environment mostly created by her colleagues.
The now ex-Walmart employee Beth McGrath, decided to quit over the microphone and telling everyone who she felt working there for almost five years, instead of quitting the regular way. She simply wanted to know entire store what is happening in the store and with her management.
Using the store’s loudspeaker, she not only called out the store on its practices but recorded it and posted the video to her Facebook page.
“Attention Walmart shoppers and associates, my name is Beth from electronics,” she begins. “I’ve been working at Walmart for almost five years and I can say that everyone here is overworked and underpaid. “I’ve been working at Walmart for almost five years and I can say that everyone here is overworked and underpaid.”
Then she slammed her colleagues and superiors, criticizing them for creating a toxic working environment for her and her other colleagues.
“The attendance policy is bulls–t. We’re treated from [sic] management and customers poorly every day. Whenever we have a problem with it, we’re told that we’re replaceable.”
“I’m tired of the constant gaslighting,” McGrath continued. “This company treats their elderly associates like s–t. To Jarred, our store manager, you’re a pervert. Greta and Kathy, shame on you for treating our associates the way you do. I hope you don’t speak to your families the way you speak to us.”
Although her intension was not to post the video on the social which she later did, the video immediately went viral on both Facebook and TikTok and many other ex-Walmart workers supported Beth with her decision to leave her job.
