Walmart Fires Long-Term Manager For Unjustified Reasons

Work victimization at its finest

Nicole D'Aloisio

On December 26, 2016, Carla Householder, 62, of Sparta, New Jersey was fired from her outrank position as a Customer Service Manager at a Walmart in Franklin, New Jersey. The reasoning? For calling out on Christmas Eve to visit a loved one in hospice, who then passed away the next day. While working at Walmart for a total of 17 years, Carla was disrespected, referred to as "old" and put down on many occasions. This unjust episode of work victimization needs to be brought to everyone's attention. Work discrimination is real, and unfortunately still happening in our society today. Watch the video below to hear Carla's story. Shame on you, Walmart.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
