It's tough enough trying to make a living on retail wages. It's despicable to see how many places shave employee hours. Yet somehow I'm not surprised to see Wal-Mart in the list of offenders. And that they even had a name for the “one-minute clock-out”. It makes you think it was a known moniker for a shady practice, one of those shady practices that continues until there's lawsuits and wrist slapping.
