On Thursday afternoon, Jackson Rasicot entered Walmart in Grand Prairie, where he worked with his letter of resignation, handwritten at the back of his printed summary, the irony did not lose him.
He returned to the manager's assistant, handed the letter, and walked through the intercom. He first turned on the camera on his phone, then hit # 807 and started talking.
"Watch out for all buyers, collaborators, and management, and I would like to tell all of you today that no one should work here.
His denial of a video he posted on the same day with "have to watch," has since blasted and received more than 16,000 views and was shared more than 400 times. Rasicho said he was giving up in such a dramatic way to raise awareness of labor issues that affect employees in a corporation like Walmart.
The video shot from a low angle shows that Rasicot talks in the intercom about Walmart's way of managing and why he left.
"I've been a loyal employee here for a year and a half, and I'm sick of all bulls, fake records and my work," he says in the video.
He cursed the management, the job and Walmart before closing, followed by "woo," heard in the background.
The 17-year-old says he has decided to publish the video because he no longer wants people to shop at Walmart.
"I want people to start boycotting," he said.
After the video was released, Raikott said he had been approached by Walmart employees from all over Canada who shared their experience of working for the multinational retailer.
"They tell me how he is in their leading Walmart," he said.
Someone from Newfoundland, someone from Quebec, another from Ontario. This is not just our leading Walmart. This is national. It's a corporate thing. This is how managers are taught. "
Rasicho says he always knew it would be if he ever left his job he had for a year and a half. But he never really thought of quitting a month ago.
He claims that his assistant manager called him "a waste of time" after repeated requests to allow him to focus on a department instead of being appointed to a new one every day. However, until he was written that he had worked on the weekends he claimed to have done to try to accumulate hours, he decided it was time to give up.
"It was a bit of a hustle because my fingers were already hanging from the edge," he said.
Although he wants his friends to share his video, Rasiko says he does not expect what he has received.
"I expected several hundred posts and a few shares," he said.
Raicot says he hopes through his video and his full attention that he can raise awareness of how workers are treated in giant corporations like Walmart.
"Do not treat your employees as if you owned them if they were your property, do not think to throw them around," he said.
