Walmart Responding to Backlash After Announcing Store Greeters to Be Eliminated

March 2, 2019

Ever since announcing their plan to phase out the job of "people greeter" from 1,000 stores Walmart has been receiving a strong backlash. The main reason for that backlash is due to the number of individuals with disabilities that had those jobs. Greeters with cerebral palsy, spina bifida and other physical disabilities feared they'd be out of work, sparking protests from customers and others. But now Walmart is pledging to make “every effort” to find other roles for disabled workers.
