"This Is Why You Don't Buy an iPad From Walmart"

This video, posted to YouTube yesterday, purports to show three Walmart employees shuffling stock in the warehouse of a store in Pikeville, KY. While it's unclear how representative it is, it may be enough to put you off buying electronics from that particular store.


The bearded guy opens the video by explaining "this is why you don't buy an iPad from Walmart", before he and his colleagues throw stock around the place, deliberately throwing boxes on the floor at times. It's tough to make out if those are iPad boxes in the video, so it's difficult to 100 percent prove its veracity.

But if the video is real, it's kind of unbelievable that people would treat electronics like this. Also, if it is genuine, it's likely these guys won't have a job for much longer. Even if they're just throwing around an empty box, though, knowing that staff with an attitude like this are handling products you're stumping up hundreds of dollars for is difficult to stomach.

Yeah, let's pay employees minimum wage, treat them like shit, overwork them, or in some cases overwork them without overtime pay, and expect them to act civilized and thoughtful... sorry... not gonna happen!
