Wal-Mart Workers Lash Out Over ‘Silly’ Dress Code Changes
Several Wal-Mart employees are up in arms following the company's decision to change its dress code from a plain blue shirt and khakis to one that requires a collared shirt and a vest. According to Gawker, the discount retailer issued a statement on its internal website last month that starting Sept. 29, store associates can no longer show up to work without a collar. Although the company will pay for the required vest, employees are expected to foot the bill for the new shirts. According to Wal-Mart's corporate website, employees’ average full-time hourly wage is $12.92.
