Fired Wal-Mart Worker Says Spying Was Sanctioned By Superiors

By malan     Apr 4, 2007 in Crime
A Wal-Mart employee, who was fired last month for intercepting a reporter's calls, says he was part of a sophisticated surveillance operation.
Last month it was reported here at Digital Journal that a Wal-Mart employee was fired for spying. Bruce Gabbard says he was actually part of a large surveillance operation that snooped on employees, stockholders and others, and was sanctioned by his superiors.
Gabbard says that as a member of the surveillance team he helped infiltrate an anti-WalMart group to find out if they planned on protesting the company's annual meeting and says he helped deploy monitoring systems that recorded the actinos of anyone connected to WalMart's global computer network.
Gabbard's claims have been confirmed by other Wal-Mart employees who say that indeed Wal Mart was performing the deep surveillance.
Many people from Gabbar'd group have been fired or demoted since the news hit last month.
"This group is no longer operating in the same manner that it did prior to the discovery of the unauthorized recording of telephone conversations. There have been changes in leadership, and we have strengthened our practices and protocols in this area," the company said in a statement.
It's not hard to believe that Wal-Mart would pull these kinds of tricks, they are known for their very harsh tactical warfare on the market around them it's one of the reasons they continue to dominate the market.
