Walmart is coming under fire after it was revealed the retail giant offers employees who work holidays a small in-store discount instead of overtime pay.
Walmart is one of several big-box retailers who are open on Thanksgiving Day. They start their Black Friday sale at 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Day.
At Target and Amazon, workers are paid time and a half for each hour worked.
Walmart offers employees a 10 percent or 15 percent off discount to shop at the store instead. One of the discounts only lasts two days.
A worker at an Idaho Walmart who wanted to stay anonymous for fear of retaliation shared a flyer promoting the 10 percent discount offered to Walmart employees in December, with another 15% discount offered to workers who work shifts from Wednesday to Saturday, to use once on two specific days in December. A Walmart spokesperson confirmed the discount.
