If she was treated so poorly by her previous location, why did she want to continue with working at Walmart when she and her husband moved?

Because a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush when you are living in a depressed area of 18,000 people and 10% unemployment. The hours she was working in their previous town worked for her because of the hours her husband works. Between them, they were able to not have to have a daycare bill.

If one of the recently hired were hired on not just for the holiday season, should they get booted out of their job because your DIL moved to the area?

Again, when she approached management about making the transfer, all they had to say was "sorry, they don't have any full time positions there" and she would have spent her final days in the old town trying to find a better job in the new town.

The point is moot anyway, as she finally threw up her hands in frustration and is looking for a full time job in the new town. With lower unemployment and family connections there, it looks like she'll be working for someone else before the end of next month.
