I understand that the health plan has a clause in it that if you get a settlement from an outside source they get some of the money they paid out back, but this is just plain stupid.
I think all of the former co-workers of this woman, as well as everyone else who works for Walmart needs to stand up and be a caring person and tell Walmart, and their insurance carrier how evil they are being in pursuing this case.
My favorite line from the article is this one from her now ex-husband (who divorced her by the way so she would receive more benefits for her care, not because he didn't love her any more, but because of this law suit, he can't take care of her the way he wants to!)
"Who needs the money more? A disabled lady in a wheelchair with no future, whatsoever, or does Wal-Mart need $90 billion, plus $200,000?" he asked.
I really hope that Walmart and the people that run the place stop to think about what they are doing to this family. This to me is worse than the sexual discrimination, forced overtime, This is a company that makes around $20,000 a MINUTE Thats profit people, not before expenses (including wages)!!! Talk about corporate greed! There are people out there in the United States that can not afford to go grocery shopping for their families today, because Walmart keeps raising prices, and this family who Walmart is suing can not afford to send their younger son to college, or even stay married, because of this greedy place.
They make me sick!
