"Do not Try to Get Hired at WalMart in Burlington, NC - You can't!" by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

Wal Mart Stores and captioned poster

Walmart in Burlington, North Carolina is NOT catering to the population here. In fact, the hiring kiosks at the local WalMarts do not allow job applicants to fill out a new application or access an old one on file, to allow for continuity. 

There is a large Mexican population here, and very few Mexicans are working at Wal Mart in Burlington.  Ku Klux Klan leadership is here also.  "Someone" blocked employment here in Burlington, period.  Most of the people working at WalMart here are white.  It looks like someone got involved in preferential hiring.

 It is hard to know what other issues exist, but Internationally, Wal Mart claims to be ethical, has a statement online to this effect, and is supposed to be affirmative action oriented.
