NO RE­GRETS AS TEEN QUITS WAL­MART JOB WITH IN­TER­COM RANT

National Post (National Edition) - - CANADA -

A 17-year-old Wal­mart em­ployee in Grand Prairie, Alta., who said he was “fed up” aired his griev­ances over the store’s in­ter­com be­fore an­nounc­ing he was quit­ting. Jack­son Raci­cot posted a video of the stunt to his Face­book page called “How I Quit My Job To­day.” The video shows him di­al­ing into the in­ter­com sys­tem at a Grande Prairie Wal­mart and ad­dress­ing shop­pers, as­so­ciates and man­age­ment in a speech that could ri­val Howard Beale’s fa­mous “I’m as mad as hell” mono­logue from the movie Net­work. “I got fed up,” Raci­cot said in a Fri­day in­ter­view, ex­plain­ing he felt em­ploy­ees were not be­ing treated well and oth­ers should know about it. He said he had been work­ing in var­i­ous Wal­mart de­part­ments for a lit­tle over a year and a half when he quit on Thurs­day. “I don’t re­gret what I did. I went into this know­ing what will hap­pen.” Raci­cot said. Wal­mart said: “We are aware of the video cir­cu­lat­ing on­line and are dis­ap­pointed by this in­ci­dent. Re­spect for all in­di­vid­u­als in­clud­ing our as­so­ciates and cus­tomers is a core value at Wal­mart.”
