May I Help You?

Walmart evidently missed its moment in history. Temporary Walmart
employee Fernando Gallardo filed a complaint
with the Nevada Equal Rights Commission charging he was
ostracized, stripped of all responsibilities and made to wear a yellow
vest - the only one in the store - after telling his manager he was gay.

"Between the 50 or so temporary
associates in that store, there is a rotation through the position of
'May I Help You' associate. The several associates in this role wear a
vest so customers can identify them and ask for help in finding products
that may have been temporarily moved to a new spot." - Walmart
spokesman, explaining
it was no big deal even though Gallardo was the only person
wearing a vest.
