Wal-Mart hiring pledge rings hollow to reader

To the editor:

Wal-Mart says it is going to hire recent honorably discharged veterans. What is Wal-Mart going to offer them, part-time jobs at poverty wages? Wal-Mart doesn’t even honor the military discount, which is only 10 percent.

Our vets offered their lives to our country. Years ago, one of the country’s veteran associations sued Wal-Mart because an employee was called to duty and when he came home Wal-Mart had given his job away and they had no positions available.

Did everyone forget that?
