WTF? Gay Walmart Worker In Las Vegas Forced To Wear Special Yellow Vest

As if you needed more proof that Walmart is just plain EVIL….

An 18 year-old employee at a Las Vegas area Wal-Mart says that after his bosses forced him to confirm his that he was gay and then he was made to wear a special yellow vest and shunned by almost everyone who worked there.

Back in March, 18-year-old Fernando Gallardo got a seasonal job at a Las Vegas Walmart, hoping to make a few extra dollars. But a few weeks into the job, Gallardo says, his immediate supervisor asked him “point-blank” in front of four of his coworkers if he was gay, and from then on alienated him from the 50 other associates at that location. “I told her yes, and after that she was very rude and short with me,” he tells The Advocate. Gallardo says that soon after the incident, he was stripped of many of his daily duties and asked to wear a yellow vest and walk around the store. By mid May his supervisor and two other managers stopped talking to him completely.

Fernando also went to a human resources manager and filed a report, but to no avail. He also accuses the store’s management of attempting to bribe some of his temporary coworkers with permanent positions, in exchange for saying he volunteered the information about his sexual orientation. However, Gallardo says he felt pressured into telling his boss that he is gay, by the pointed way in which she asked.

Fernando.  Keep the faith and SUE THE FUCK out of them!
