George Rhynes asks if Wal-Mart can fire employees who disarmed
an armed robber for not following procedures,
why can’t the manager he says didn’t follow procedures when
the manager fired him be fired in return?
I wonder why Wal-Mart procedures and profit are more important
than employee safety, well-being, or the drain on public resources
to cover what Wal-Mart does not?
Hazard Mitigation Public Hearing (10/17/2011)
PUBLIC HEARING ON
MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2011
327 N. ASHLEY STREET
COMMISSION CHAMBERS – 2ND FLOOR
For more information please contact EMA Director, Ashley Tye, at 671-2790.
“First off, you have to know what your job is.”
He was one of the
several employees I supervised as Sporting Goods Department Manger at
Wal-Mart Store #2615 in Valdosta, Georgia. On March 20, 2008, I was
wrongfully terminated for “INABILITY TO PERFORM JOB” without
Video by George Boston Rhynes.
It has been 3 1/2 years since my wrongful termination and I have
written Wal-Mart Stores Inc. thirty letters, thirteen videos, 34 pages
of documented proof that I was never trained; nor entered into Wal-Mart
Stores Inc. four week mandatory training program as other employees.
Moreover, it should be a shame and disgrace that several former and
current President Mike Duke has all ignored me as if I was a worker in
the Republic of China or in some other third world nation!
Even more un-American is that Chairman David Glass along with his
entire Wal-Mart Board of Directors has followed the local Wal-Mart
Store Manager at Store #2615 in what is definitely unprofessional
behavior along the lines of respecting workers rights. Wal-Mart
Executives seem to believe that the American People (customers) have
made Wal-Mart Stores Inc. a god beside God and answers to no one.
More videos will follow from real workers and former assistant managers
until you are as sure as I am that Americans need workers Rights in
this NATION for all employees.
As elected officials (government officials) I do hope that you begin to
look at workers rights and my wrongful termination without any recourse
because I am in an “At Will to Work State”, Georgia. This means
any worker can be fired for GOOD cause, BAD cause, or for no cause at
all and like Wal-Mart. They are not required to provide a reason for
you, your spouse, child or neighbor for why they wrongfully terminated
We are 100% sure that there is nothing Wal-Mart Executives or Board of
Directors will or can do in my case or cases like mine. Therefore,
as a Retired Military of the United Armed Forces that followed
our “Code of Conduct” in the military need a code of conduct for
(ALL) American Workers.
My wrongful termination has forced me to follow the same “CODE OF
CONDUCT” that all United States Military Veterans had to
follow. Therefore, if I could place my life on the line and face
death for foreigners on foreign battlefields then surely I can stand
up for my own family members and love ones.
Yes, I intend to fight as hard for myself, my own family and fellow
American Workers here in the Home Land! God Bless both the righteous
and the not so righteous. Peace, love and overstanding. We are not
who we claim to be; but who we prove ourselves to be over a given
period of time and after three and one-half years Wal-Mart EXECUTIVES
has proven who they are to the American people and the world.

LOWNDES COUNTY — The Lowndes County Commission heard a presentation
Tuesday evening from Glenn Thomson, Alston & Bird LLP regarding a bond
issue the County has entered into for the purpose of providing needed
funding for the Valdosta-Lowndes County Industrial Authority.
After the presentation, a vote was taken accepting the issue and Lowndes
County Commission Chairman Rod Casey,
County Attorney Walter Elliott and
County Clerk Paige Dukes adjourned to an adjoining chamber to complete
the signing of the documents that will enable the Industrial Authority
to negotiate for the acquisition of property pursuant to their mission
of attracting manufacturing and other businesses to Lowndes County.
Bond Counsel, Glenn Thomson, stated, “Mr. Chairman and Commission, I
would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your time and brag
on your staff and consultants. Your staff put this transaction together
very quickly. In fact, the underwriter’s counsel remarked that he had
never encountered county employees and staff that had worked so diligently
and that due to their preparedness and hard work, he was able to put his
information together in near record time. Their performance and that of
County Attorney, Walter Elliott, who worked tirelessly on this project
as well, is a tremendous credit to those responsible for managing the
business of the county.”
Why was it necessary to put together a guarantee for a $15 million
dollar bond issue in “near record time”?
