One more reason I don’t shop at Walmart

This is just lovely –

An internal memo sent to Wal-Mart’s board of directors proposes numerous ways to hold down spending on health care and other benefits while seeking to minimize damage to the retailer’s reputation. Among the recommendations are hiring more part-time workers and discouraging unhealthy people from working at Wal-Mart.

Hire younger people, pay people with seniority less, and this gem

To discourage unhealthy job applicants, Ms. Chambers suggests that Wal-Mart arrange for “all jobs to include some physical activity (e.g., all cashiers do some cart-gathering).”

While I feel a little guilty linking to the NYTimes (I am boycotting them over Times Select and Judith Miller), I’m too busy being outraged by Walmart (again) than to care about being pissed off at NYT.
