Walmart Eliminates Greeters

Walmart has decided to do away with the position of door greeter as of April 2019. If you have ever been to a

Walmart, you have seen one of their greeters.  This was long a job that otherwise-disabled people could do. The elimination of this position could mean more disabled without jobs.

Change of Title, Change of Duties

Walmart is expanding the former role of greeter to include several new duties. Walmart called the new position customer host. The people working as hosts will do such things as assist customers and work

security. Walmart says that a person applying to be a host must be able to lift up to 25 pounds and stand for long periods of time. Hosts may also be required to collect carts and even climb ladders.

Walmart Not Alone In Demanding More From Workers

This move by Walmart is consistent with what other large employers are doing. It is increasingly rare to find a job that has a single duty. Companies expect their workers to stay busy doing a lot of different tasks. This means that such traditionally sedentary jobs as a receptionist may no longer be sedentary. A receptionist, for example, might be required to move heavy Amazon packages when they are not answering phones or dealing with visitors.

A Changing Workplace

Social Security needs to be aware that the workplace is evolving, often in ways that eliminate work that the disabled might have been able to do.  This action by one of the largest employers in America shows that.

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
