I would suppose that it is actually a document stolen from Wal-Mart by the United Food aqnd Commercial Workers union and released to the Huffington Post in hopes of creating mischief.

The UFCW has been conducting a hate campaign against Wal-Mart for years, and liberal dupes just keep eating it up.

All kinds of other employers, union and non union have split shifts and such. Pointing with anger at Wal-Mart is just silly.

In Seattle school bus drivers are organized by the Teamsters and the public transit drivers are organized by an AFL-CIO union. Both have split shifts that employees are required to take when scheduled.

And if you want to see lousy terms of employment, take a look at mom 'n pop retail stores, which frequently offer lousy terms to them that will take them. Of course the owners frequently don't do much better.
