Walmart Disrespects the US Military

I have worked at walmart for nine years now. For the last seven years I have worked the same shift which was 5am to 2 pm.

A few weeks ago a manager went around and told everyone that worked that particular shift that starting the next day it no longer existed and we were all to come in at seven and if our availability didn't accommodate the new hours then too bad we would just lose the hours and there was nothing we could do about it.

The funny thing is that I put in for a change of availability a few weeks before that my dept lead asked me to put in to accommodate for my military and school schedules.

When I asked for this change I was treated like a complete idiot for asking and told I was being unfair to walmart. That's funny since apparently it's fair for them to change everyone's schedule with no notice and tell them too bad I guess you're losing hours but it's unfair for a veteran to ask for them to accomodate his military life to make his life a little easier.

Oh by the way none of my problems with walmart started until after i joined the national guard 3 years ago.....coincidence?
